A cute game with some clever dialogue and a decent story, but side missions like ranching, herding, and the like proved frustrating to the point that I just chucked the whole thing.
Whilst these side missions are not essential per se, they do open up a great deal of plot material and to have them hinge on such things as attempting to manhandle a herd of horses this way and that is really not fun.
In short, when I signed on, my interests were pretty simple, if somewhat juvenile; revenge against those that have wronged my character, hunting down criminals for money and essentially living out every Clint Eastwood fantasy I've ever had. Playing rancher was not in the job description.
I like my westerns in the style of "Deadwood". Stop mixing plot elements into this "Little House on the Prairie" BS, it's irritating and unnecessary.

I had great things about this game but it didn't live up to them entirly. the shoot outs were the best the best partbesides using those machine guns every now and then. but the worst part that made me want to send this game back was the save locations becuase to save you must first go to somwhere and buy that bed. so for it got really boring traveling to the next safe. this was due to the fact that you seemed to go pretty slow when traveling. the story was pretty good but to prolonged. the graghics i heard really things about but they were okay. they were not terrible but they were not that great either. another thing the wildlife was nice with the hunting and all of that but there were no snakes. in wild i'd imagine you'd run into a couple of snakes and a maybe they'd bite and kill your horse. and know talking about the horse, it was kind've messed up to. if a cuager killed your horse you could whistle for another. you should have to get a new one. but the game is fun with the shoot outs and the random quest were a guy getiing robbed or something. but there wasn't any random quest for you to lose honor just gain it. still a good game though you should still play.
