  1. It is fun in places and does have some FPS gaming goodness, but it is too short in both length and originality.

    There are some really good points to the game, but also some really bad things to go along.

    The level design doesn't hold a candle to many of the latest games, but Gunman still pulls off a very entertaining single player experience.

    It's like day old meatloaf: still delicious, but still meatloaf.
  5. If all you are looking for is a good-looking program and a reason to shoot just about everything that moves, this could be the program you are looking for.

    While it doesn't necessarily capture the imagination to the extent that "Half Life" did, it does pack a pretty good punch.
  7. The engine is dated, the story is shallow, and the replay factor is quite low. Aside from going through the game once, there really isn't much you would learn or gain by going through the game a second time.

    Generic and bland. Don't get me wrong...it's a mildly entertaining game, it's just nothing special. It makes a great total conversion, but as a full retail game selling for $30, it ultimately lacks depth and swims with the "pitifully average" kids at the public pool.
  9. A good-looking FPS with a huge assortment of baddies, as well as a multitude of impressive environments. And although the action is fairly cut and dry, it is still a shooter's joy while it lasts.
  10. If we take it for what it really is - a mod, then one could label Rewolf's baby as a nice mod success story with mediocre retail reach and appeal.
  11. The game would have been a great freebie to offer as a download. Episodic? Sure! Packed in with "Half-Life Platinum"? You betcha. Slap a price tag on it? No.

    A good first effort, but it's too derivative of Half-Life in many spots, and it lacks focus and polish.
  13. Gunman Chronicles isn't a terrible game, I just suspect many of us have been there and done that.
  14. While GC introduces some new gameplay conventions - such as the customizable weapons and controllable vehicle - that weren't attempted by the original Half-Life, it's nothing that prior user-created mods like Chemical Existence haven't done before.

    Better "Half-Life" fixes can be dowloaded for free. [Feb 2001, p.71]

    Is Gunman Chronicles a good total conversion? For the most part, yes. Is Sierra trying to milk the Gordon Freeman cow one too many times? Absolutely.
  17. While Gunman Chronicles looks a lot like Half-Life, it lacks the personality and creativity that made Half-Life such an epic game.
