The scenery are very good graphics and detail, expanding
very far into the distance, with trees, rocks, mountains, building,
people and even some wild life that includes wild dogs, horses,
buffalos, birds, tigers, bears and a few more all adds to a great
game world, that's feels real and with life that's fun to explore.
The detail its self on the characters are very good that shows
good animations and expressions. The horses are animated perfect,
all the legs, body, head and tail that swishes about all looks
and feels smooth when walking or speeding up into a run. When
not on one your self it can walk about and shacks it head like
a horse does and the wild ones will run off if hears gun fire.
The music fits in with the wild west and can add to the gameplay
atmosphere, although not as noticeable at time unlike Red Dead
Revolver which was like a classic western film. The sound is excellent,
going back to the horse, the noises it makes is very lifelike
and the hooves will sound different when running on wood, railway
tracks, on rocks and any other surface. The guns have a good blasting
sound, that each one sounds different. With many characters though
out the game, you think it go wrong but all the voices are stop
on and the actor Thomas Jane from the movie punisher (which did
the voice for the game too) has also lent his talent to Colton
White. Kris Kristofferson, Lance Henriksen, Brad Dourif, Ron Perlman
and many more do voiceovers.
The controls are easy to use and quickly. L1 to throw
dynamite and R1 to fire weapon. Changing weapons can be done with
quick change O button or hold it down and select with with d-pad
for for the type of weapon you want. You can also jump and drink
from flask for help with a 1 press of the button. Ride the horse
is simple but can get a bit more difficulty when shooting as well.
Left Analogue for moving the horse and the right is used for aiming.
L2 is to make you spur/gallop faster but will use up the horses
energy and can kill it, if riding to hard. When pressed square
on horseback will rear up or skid attack than will trample/kill
any person or wild animal which is hit.
The gameplay is bloody and powerful shots can blow legs,
arms and head off and when use quickdraw (slow-mo shooting) lets
you shoot guns out of hands and then you can continue to keep
it in the air when hitting. The missions involve defending railroad
bridges, people, towns, attacking base, saving captives and many
more. There's a few shops which lets up upgrade damaged, aiming,
ammo and other thing, the weapons though are unlocked as you progress
which are Pistols, Rifles, Shotguns, Melee (Knife, axe and sword),
Thrown, Bows and Sharpshooters, some weapons can be zoomed in.
Side missions unlock as you go through
game which are Pony Express, using a horse you must deliver and
pick up items in the allowed time. Ranching is help out the farm
rounding up livestock or defending them from bandits. Bounty Hunting,
you must Kill or capture wanted outlaws that sometimes have there
own men. Mining is just finding gold on your travels that you
must dig up with a pickaxe. Keep the pace which is help out the
sheriff with trouble from bay guys. Hunting animals is another
that use must sneak up to wild beasts, only using a bow and putting
a arrow in its head. Poker is one of my favorites but like all
the others you can not replay any, one's its completed.
There's a very good story and some cool interesting missions,
although ones completed 100% or close you probably won't play
it again for a long time. There's bosses to defeat and unlocks
to get like weapons, apache shirt. Though there is lots to do
and is fun why'll it lasts its a very short game.
==BUY OR NOT TO BUY==
A Great big open world of the wild west, good missions,
cool on horseback but a very short game. Buy if you can get it
