I would like to say one thing. This game is SHORT but fun. Blowing limbs off later in the game creates some fun times. There has been alot of controversy with the game regarding native americans but history can not be changed. There is no misrepresentation in fact. Through out the game you play as a short tempered cowboy named Colton White and you experience most of the aspects of living in 1880 with one tiny loss of history. SPACE. The west was huge but this game is small and pales in comparison to the beauty of the plains. Yes the historical landmarks are there but it doesn't explore the grandiosity of the environment of the time. This is an opportunity to experience the life of a cowboy. It is a great rental game and should only be played for that reason. It is to short and the replay ability to low to create a good buy. but an amazing game for a weekend.

Gun is a good western shooter that takes you back to the 1800's when life was real tough. The gameplay is has a nice solid feel to it. Graphics are normal nothing spectacular. The shooting is cool, you have precision aim and you can shoot on horseback. the map is fairly large and there isn't any load points except for one small area which is weird. You can buy parts for your guns and some other cool stuff. After the game is over there's really nothing else to do. The towns feel dead there's usually only a few people walking around. The story is interesting, it makes you just want to see the how it ends. Overall it's a good game. If your into western times you should play this game. Especially since their's not alot of western games to choose from.

Playing this game reminds me of playing cowboys and indians as a kid, and just as much fun. This is more realistic as far as behaviors when it comes to the things you can do in the game.. There will be no "you cant really do that" moments.. Gameplay is very smooth and consistent. If you lookin for a good cowboy shooter.. Here's your sign.
