A really cool take on
the Western, Gun is a pretty close look at life in the wild west! You
star as gunman Colton White who is on a mission to discover what is
going on when Ned, a likeable hunter who Colt thinks is his father, is
killed by a group of zealots. Given a token and a cryptic clue, Colt
embarks on his journey to discover the truth.
One of the first things that you are going to notice
with this game is that its over Really Really early. Gun had the chance
to be a real player or contender of sorts with a compelling storyline,
brilliant voice acting and a nice looking game to boot. However, with
the shortness of the game you never have enough time to get into the
title as much as you would like despite the multitudes of side missions
that populate the game.
One of the things that I enjoyed about Gun was the
chance to ride a horse in the game. It was a highly enjoyable experience
and the team at Neversoft has done a great job. The title follows a
logical enough system of progression and all runs smoothly and in a
fairly convincing manner.
Gun is gory for all you fans of shooters and there
are a number of rewards for those who learn quickly how to take
advantage of Coltís Quickdraw Ability which allows him to snipe.
Possibly reward is the wrong word but you do get to get in there and
line up multiple targets when in Quickdraw and headshots will always do
that job a lot quicker. There is plenty of claret for all and Colt is
not afraid to assist in spreading it.
Whilst overall Gun is a good game, there simply is
not that much to talk about. The breakneck pace of the title kills the
storylineís potential and Iím not sure how many of you will like the
fact that the game is over so quickly. Itís a game that I have no
problems recommending, its fun, looks great, sounds good and is pretty
tight. The side missions help to fill it out somewhat but all the
missions and boss battles donít present much of a challenge.
If I was to give any advice with this game it would
have to be this: I do recommend it and also I would have to say rent it
before you buy it as there is every chance that with a solid weekend
rental you could finish that bad boy. Give it a shot.
