  1. The core gameplay is very refined and every aspect of the presentation is top-notch. If the game was a bit longer, there really wouldn't be anything to complain about.
  2. Gun surrounds you with characters and a story that put their own stamp on the genre and make you a participant in a grand adventure that stands up to the rich tales of the legendary west. [Dec 2005, p.150]
  3. I wasn't sure what to expect from Gun, but I came out having a blast. While it's a short ride, beginning to end is an amazing experience.
  4. There are a lot of good things in this game and I wouldn't be surprised or disappointed to see Neversoft revisit this franchise again, hopefully polishing the rough edges.

    Graphically Gun is as pretty as a peach. The motions of both man and beast are well captured and even close up, they look beautifully textured, very tangible.
  6. Gun, overall, isn't terribly fun to play. But the story is definitely entertaining, the game looks fine, it sounds great, and the Wild West feel is pretty authentic.
  7. Far too generic to be considered anything other than average. [Christmas 2005, p.114]

    Excellent. Very absorbing story line, side quests add a lot. Great control, graphics, and music. 'Zelda like' in the wild west. Excellent voice acting. Expand

    Gun is an excellent title and provides more captivating gameplay than its rival Red Dead Revolver. This game would easily be a 9/10 if only the story wasn't so short. Expand
