  • Summary: Dillon's Rolling Western: The Last Ranger is an action tower-defense game which combines the strategy elements of Dillon defeating enemies with weapon emplacements that players can deploy around the map, and the action elements of Dillon directly attacking opponents with flashy action moves like rolling attacks and claw slashes.

    However, like the first Rolling Western game, it demands a lot of your attention, and since the sequel is just that much bigger, one has to wonder whether The Last Ranger's relentless pace is just a little too much game to handle.

    Dillon’s Rolling Western: The Last Ranger stands alone with very few comparable games. It’s an original title that blends genres well with fantastic music and appealing characters. The biggest shortcomings are the timers and restrictions on nearly every aspect of the game. I want to spend more time beating up Grocks and exploring, but just when you find your stride, you are pushed towards the next section whether you’re ready or not.

    Like a lot of country music, The Last Ranger suffers from being repetitive and overly simplistic at times. Thankfully, it's very well performed, infectious, and packed with plenty of personality.

    The Last Ranger comes up short as a sequel, as it spends too much time retreading the same territory we saw in the first game and addresses none of its flaws.

    More of the same, a wasted opportunity for the sequel of a really good game in which players had lot of expectations.

    Just like it's predecessor Dillon's Rolling Western is a fun game with a very nice atmosphere. But, just like it's predecessor it also is a game with lots of repetitive gameplay, which makes it a little bit less good than the first Rolling Western Dillon was in.

    It’s a lesson Dillon’s Rolling Western: The Last Crusade could have used: it’s not always good to be genre-straddling, especially when you do it in a way that leaves both your genres hamstrung and uninteresting.

    "The Last Ranger is quite possibly the best download-only title on the Nintendo eShop yet and is a fantastic game on its own. There are many hours of gameplay to be had here and the game is fairly challenging, so it is definitely worth your money if you are a gamer who likes strategy games and a challenge. It is something I'd suggest to be a must-buy, even if you haven't played the first one. You're not missing terribly much from the first anyways."
