Although the graphics are not the greatest it has good
detail on people as well as building and the surroundings. But
the grainy, dusts looked fits perfectly well with the wild west.
Plus Rockstar has gave the cut scenes a bit fizzy look to it so
it look and feels like its a old classic film that's been recorded
with old technology cameras.
The sound of the guns are great, with lots of characters you meet
all are different story's and has great voice acting. The music
really adds to the feel and atmosphere of the game. The music
is just like the one's you hear from the old western movies.
The controls are very easy to use, weapons can be change
quickly, ducking, good aim and a button for a slow-mo shooting
where you can shoot all your bullets in your revolver quickly
(called dead-aim,Lets you aim for vital parts), can also so be
used with rifles or shotguns too. Only down side is riding the
horse, as its hard to control and slow down, plus at time you
also have to shoot when riding, although you don't have to ride
as its optionally apart from when you chase a train when on horseback.
There's lots of different areas and mission to do from,
woods, mountains, train tracks, caves and more. Some of the mission
involve escaping prisons, taking out al bandits in a town, killing
bosses, defend a train and lots more. There's are a few levels
where you can ride a animals, like the range there's bulls, buffalos
and houses later on. There are also a few other characters which
you use ones each in the main game. Most of the levels are very
short (mainly at the beginning of the game) but there are lots
of levels to go though. Apart from dead aim, that can kill lots
of enemies at ones or help in boss fight there's also dueling.
Fans of western film will known about this, which is where you
both stand a few meters apart. The fastest one to draw the gun
and shoots wins. The aim changes colors from yellow, red and dark
red to tell you if you hit or not. You will need some practice
to get good at this as you will need to be dueling with up to
3 at a time plus near the end off the game the though people are
very, very fast. Any bounty's you get can be spent on any number
of things such as levels, extra characters for multiplayer, new
weapons and also upgrades for them. Plus more heath and dead-aim
slots which will only be used in the main game.
Ones completed you unlock a challenge mode which can
then unlock more stuff as cheats, levels and so on. Completing
the game will also give you the best revolver in the game which
is also better than any rifle too. Multiplayer can be up to 4
players, 2 modes dueling and death match with teams or not. Options
can be changed to have powers up on. The multiplayer levels can
be a bit small although only 4 players can be on at ones (4 players
of cpu or humans) but with about 100 characters to use with almost
all have different specials instead of the dead-aim.
==BUY OR NOT TO BUY==
Buy if you like westerns or something different. Great
for one player but its best to look elsewhere for a great multiplayer
