This is one, if not THE best game i've ever played. You can hunt and collect animal pelts, ride your horse all over the land (which is fun by itself), kill criminals or choose to tie them up and bring them back to the sheriff for money, play card games and liar's dice, admire the scenery and graphics, collect other things for money, steal horses, and more! There's so much to do, and it's like living in the old west, and is interesting. I don't know why people gave this game a '1' rating from a bad disc or their own messed up system, when some of them didn't even play it! It should easily have gotten at least a 9.5!

First off, yes, there is a absolute ton to do in this game and it is all well constructed. The characters are even great, as are the graphics. The problem is how it all comes together and how barren it ends up being.
First, the combat is WAY too easy, affording no challenge or fun; and then you'll spend 10 minutes on your horse running past endless cactai for every 2 minutes of actual gameplay or story. It is grossly unbalanced between travel and activity.
This game is severely overhyped. There was such a lack of sense of progression or excitement that I couldn't even finish it.
By now we have all heard that this game is basically GTA only on horses. I think this is a great game. I like that you can switch the controls to be like any other shooter game. Great storyline, loads of missions, and lots of side fun. I actually purchased the game because my girlfriend loves playing it and that doesn't happen to often. Worth the rent if you like the GTA games and I would even say worth the buy. Good game to play while your waiting for the next game on your Q to get to you.
