Summary: In a gaming universe where space-marines and World War II heroes are your standard protagonist, Neversoft’s GUN centers its story on a revolver touting, quick-draw marksmen cowboy, Colton “Cole” White, and if that isn’t a breath of fresh – you most likely have an addiction to “recycled” ideas.
Summary: This game disappointed me on a couple of counts... First, graphically it looked like a PS2 game, not a 360 game. Not enough was done with the 360's hardware to make this look and feel playable... Other than the horrible graphics, the targeting system is almost broken. The only way to shoot anything effectively is to use "quick draw" which isn't always available. Hand to hand fighting is too easy, and ranged combat is almost impossibly frustrating.
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.
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.
Conclusion: Definatly worth giving this game a go. Story is pretty short, but the side missions are pretty cool, and are a good extra on the game. To add, it would have been good to see a live side to this game.. shootouts at dawn online with your mates would have been a laugh..
Summary: It is true that Gun has not aged well. Hell, in my opinion, it didn't look great when it came out first go round. However, Gun may have it's issues, but as a gaming experience, it's not half bad. It's true that landscapes and textures are bland, some missions are rather repetitive, and towns are as dull as an Amish HMV, but the story is well written, voice acting is excellent, and there is some genuine fun to be had shooting up Injuns and tearing across dusty plains on...
Summary: Having read the other reviews I have to say this game interested me. I am sorry to say the interest was fairly short lived. The game is good, graphics are not really what you would expect on the 360 and the change for a first person shooter not to be based in World War 2 is refreshing. However, the game is too short and the side mission are not tasking enough.
Excerpt: "...all the events. Gameplay: Gun has one main plotline that you follow, broken apart into missions. Just as with GTA3, your loyalties with whom you side with change with the main mission, but it's not so much that you need to visit the bosses to get your next job, just that you start from a reasonable point and work your way to whatever goal it is to complete the mission. While completing the main mission, which rewards you with cash and improved ...
Summary: From the makers of the best selling Tony Hawks skateboard games comes this Wild West set third-person shooter. You play Colton White a dab hand at shooting who work with his Dad to shoot game for the steamboats working the rivers. Things are going great until the steamboat you are working on is attacked by a group of deranged ex-soldiers obsessed with finding some mysterious artefact onboard.
