Ive always been a fan of the classic old west. Just the picture of an outlaw and his nice trenchcoat comin in for some trouble was awesome.
And then there i found Gun. This game so far gives the most feel for a western. The style of clothing the civilians wear, the weapons, horses, and even plenty of mention for the railroad. Gun is a great game to play if your into westerns. But it does have its problems. For starters if your down to play for hours, youll be decipointed, you wont get much gameplay out of this game, the story doesnt go as deep as it could and once you beat the game youll just wonder dodge and empire city doin nothin but killin things (that may be fun in GTA but with a map as short as the one on Gun.....i dont think so.)
Although the roaming area is small there still are some beautiful graphics to fill em up. Lookin over the long stretch of prarie or just takin your horse by the waterfall is pretty cool if you like the way games look. The core story of the game is pretty western. An adopted kids dad gets dusted off but before he dies he says "Im not your father", then a whole buch of other stuff happens to him and he ends up gettin screwed over again and again so he developes the whole Clint Eastwood (time for revenge) attitude which is played pretty well.
Overall Gun is a pretty good game to play but im not really sure its the best game to own....ill leave that choice to you.
