Glory of The West

The game in its entirety is amazingly well put together.

The characters of the game make the game come alive. All star acting and cinematography are seamlessly sown together to make a breath taking story.

The landscape and environment is spot on however having to roam the country side for hours had me turning to my campsite-shortcut-instant-travel a lot.

The aiming control and camera system defiantly needed to be readjusted but once I made my adjustments… no complaints. However, it may take some time mastering the horse controls.

Many things to do…. MANY things to do. I’m not a victim of star collection syndrome (people who have to collect all the items in a video game) but I find myself many times stopping and helping people or doing side quests as the main story waits for me to get back on track.

The music is limited but good. The GTA feel of the game is present but not as strong as I thought it would be. Which is a good thing.
There are glitches and that’s normal but there were a few that were so bad I had to restart the game.

Besides the one offs this game is a straight buy…. ‘A-‘ in my book. Well worth the $$$.

I am so glad i rented this game. I think its okay but not great. because in the trailer it says you unlock coustumes doing sharshooter challenges! Also they said you can do duels in any town. But only at specific towns and some times there aren,t any at all. The also said you,ll meet roadside burgerlers (wich i love to do!!!!) but there are barely any at all.! Also you can,t buy another 3 star horse after you get one. (trust me i even started the game over just for that.) So buy this game you,ll be bored after the 3 hour.

SNOREFEST IN THE WILD WEST!

I expected a great deal from this game, but was delivered another order of GTA's dated game play stationed in the Wild West. The graphics are quite amazing at 720p. Why was this game not released with full 1080p output? I expected a visceral experience, but was left with very little satisfaction. Though, I am sure reviewers will relish in the open world format. The game has a few revealing elements which quickly wear off after repeating them on a constant basis. Why the sheriffs’ are immediately made aware of your presence and crimes is part of the GTA genre? This takes away from the suspense of possibly being hunted down for a bounty. You would expect to view bounty signs being posted and hear rumors throughout the towns regarding your mischievous activities. I believe this game was severely overhyped before release while the coop story mode was omitted. In the end, you will enjoy this game if you enjoy the GTA series, otherwise steer clear.

Pros: Graphics, Musical Score/Audio
Cons: Game play, Realism
