Summary: Gun is a really fun game to play all the way through. It's not difficult, even on the insane difficulty, it is beatable. It was one of the first games to come out for the 360 and I do believe the graphics could have been a lot better given the platform, but they're not bad either. The real fun in the game is exploring the open "west.
Summary: Picked this up at a big box electronic retailer for 16 bucks. At that price, it is worth it. I'm glad I didn't pay 50 or 60 bucks for it when it was new, as full priced games like Gears of War and Forza 2 really put the quality of this work to shame. However: at this price it's a fun, mindless little distraction from your better, more expensive games. Bored with Gears? Tired of racing? Gun's a nice, inexpensive way to get some shooting action in.
A mediocre run 'n' gun shooter in need of improvement

Summary: Western games, it's one of the genres we rarely see in video games, and it's one of my personal favorites. Anyway, when I finally got my 360, about 5 months after it came out, GUN was #1 on my rental list, because I wasn't sure about it. The game was practically no where to be found in Blockbuster or Hollywood Video. So I ended up buying it. GUN was a great game...before I beat it the following day.
Summary: Let's start with the positives: Gun is a very pretty game, with lots of great scenery and attention to detail. It is also easy to learn and a lot of fun to play. However, the game has a few problems. First, it is one of those games that you can breeze through the entire thing only dying a few times, but at the end the "boss" is extremely difficult and takes many tries to finally defeat.
Conclusion: GUN is by no means a next-gen game, but it IS a decently fun 3rd person shooter set in the old Western times, which means there is a lot of violence, swearing and a bit of sexual refernece here and there, thus warranting the 18 rating. In a very brief summary, don't rent GUN thinking it is anything worthy of the 360's immense prowess. Unfortunately the only graphical difference between the 360 version and PS2 and Xbox version is a couple high-res textures.
Summary: I thought this game would be good, after all it's for XBOX 360! But, the graphic dissapoint me. I thought they would be better. The game play is fun and it has a nice story line i just wish the graphics were better.
Conclusion: An excellent game - but not one for the Xbox 360. The graphics seemed no better than the those from the Xbox, a consequence of rolling the game over from the older platforms to next-gen without much thought. Although there is plenty to do, one's attention span can only last so long - the story is extremely short, ending in missions which are more apt in a game such as Quake or Doom.
