  1. A mildly diverting shooting gallery, a mediocre FPS, and a slap in the face to those of us who have been waiting for seven years for a decent western-themed shooter.
  2. A long exercise in target practice, with lifeless enemies in dull levels. There's no saving during a mission, the graphics are weak, and there's no team-based action. What's worse, there's just no depth, artistry, or genuine thrills to be had. [Aug 2004, p.79]

    While this game seems to "play on rails", there are numerous games out currently which do the same, like Call of Duty. I feel that Dead While this game seems to "play on rails", there are numerous games out currently which do the same, like Call of Duty. I feel that Dead Man's Hand is an excellent value, has decent graphics, and enough little extras like shooting objects for points, and the poker mini-game before each level to earn more ammunition. It's no Far Cry or Doom III, but it is a satisfying, dusty ride through the old West. Yeehaw! Full Review »
