    Rarely do I sit down to play a game, finish it and instantly start a new playthrough; this is one of those games. Westerado is a great package with lots of replayability and can easily be recommended for fans of westerns or revenge flicks. No other experience that I've played has done revenge so well.

    Westerado manages to combine the good, the bad, and the ugly in one spectacular game that provides depth and entertainment in a small package rivaling even the major A list developers. The only downside is that it is very short, but it's one of the best games I have played so far this year.

    Westerado: Double Barreled dresses like John Wayne, shoots like Clint Eastwood and has Lee Van Cleef's attitude. It won't last too long, but it's a beautiful, clever and addictive experience. You won't find anything like it on Steam.

    Pixelart western that combines a whodunit with an open world and consequences that even Bioware never dared to touch.

    Westerado: Double Barreled has its issues, but it provides a grand adventure on a small scale and lets you find something new each time you play.

    A refreshing take on the gun trope and a really entertaining game, although it just doesn't get further than that. A mere diversion, a brief although intense shootout.

    None of this is anything like progress—Westerado isn’t exploring new frontiers when it comes to genre work—but the romance inherent to the game’s emphasis on freedom sometimes comes close to overpowering a bitter remembrance of the very real history it cribs from.

I was so invested in the story. It reminds me of the Lucasarts adventure games and Westworld. Anyone who likes a good western, pixel art and the previous things I mentioned, this is a game for you.

You play as an orphaned boy,This 2D pixel-western will entice you with surprisingly fun game-play and an interesting, responsive setting. You play as an orphaned boy, your family slaughtered by heartless bandits- it's up to you to discover their identity and kill them! The game generates a randomized "villain" every game and places them in the world and through clues and detective work, you learn what they look like and confront them.

    Some of the mechanics are admittedly a bit wonky, as can be expected with shooting a gun in a game like this, but I would still highly recommend picking up Westerado. At $15.00 the price is a bit much as there isn't a huge amount of content (I would say the average person could put in 3-4 hours) so maybe wait for a sale or humble bundle.

    Westerado is a good game with a lot of replayablity. There are tons of missions, bounty hunting, and exploring the map.

    The combat is by far the best idea I've ever seen, you are able to reload your bullets one by one if you wish or all at once, it has a decent selection of guns, rifle, shotgun, etc. Also the best part of the game is, during any conversation you can just pull your gun out on them. It gives the player a freedom most dialog choices don't. Get this game, its a gem.

    Everything about this game is horrible, I have no idea why the reviews are so positive.

    Of course the graphics are terrible, but I expected that from the screenshots. The biggest negative is the simplistic gameplay. All you do is talk to everyone and get assigned mind numbingly boring fetch quests. This is the sort of nonsense I use to play back in the 8 bit computer days. It was boring then and it is boring now. There are so many better games out there, in fact there aren't that many that are worse than this one.
