have not played part two but this is a buy. i honestly cannot review it in depth so late in its release. story aside graphics, sound and gameplay make you want to brand a cow and head out west. sadly the west isnt wild anymore. rockstar did very well with this title. if you like guns and shooting this is the game for you. the best part are the dead eye showdowns making full use of slow motion drama and anolog stick sensitivity. if you have played the sequel then this is one player nirvana. a perfect game for your private collection. put it next to god hand. if the game were longer id give it an 11. wish i could say more about it. if you own a ps2 this is a must buy. BUY IT!!!!!!!!!
Let me just start by saying I am not going to go "this is the best game EVER!" I admit I have not found a western since GUN but I have looked at it carefully and it is a great game for it's time. The graphics at that age a just great and the game play is also a strong point as well. While some say they hate this game because it has a lack of space and GUN was free roam it is true it isn't free roam but it is an older game again. Then if you see the game it actually has big levels and not hard but interesting bosses. The levels are action packed and full of enemies. And if you are a guy who doesn't want to listen to story and just kill people it is for you. A quick paragraph on enemies don't worry they don't really get harder yet you can still get upgrades because I hate when you forgot to pick up that gun and now you have five bullets left and twenty enemies.

Normally, I like to break down the finer points of the game (graphics, gameplay, etc), but this game doesn't deserve my time and effort. This game is just weak. It's derivitive, unoriginal (see the title? There ya go), the graphics look like a late-era Playstation 1 game, and the controls are tedious and unfriendly to use. In every sense of the word, this game is broken. Unless you don't mind cheap GTA clones, pass. This game has nothing to offer.
