As Colton White, a vengeful gunslinger, players must straddle the line between good and evil as they showdown against corrupt lawmen, a murderous preacher, renegade army psychopaths, merciless outlaws and unforgiving Native Americans, while waging war on horseback, collecting bounties, and commandeering trains. Players travel through an action-packed landscape of high mountain wilderness, deserts and bustling territorial towns in an epic story of betrayal, greed, and revenge. Multiple gameplay styles include: strategic gunplay and precision shooting, stealth tactics, and use of explosives. Embark on numerous side missions to master gun slinging and horse riding. Players can unlock secret weapons and upgrade skills and abilities to improve their weapon and equipment performance. [Activision] Expand

  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. If you’re a meticulous type who likes to see and do everything a game has to offer then you’re going to enjoy this. If you enjoy 3D action/shooters, you’ll find this title fits like a glove.
  3. A no-holds-barred, straight up western that certainly deserves a good look. The major flaw is how quick it is to finish and how easy it is to complete 100% of the tasks the game has to offer.
  4. The storyline in place here is good, even if the final boss fight and ending are maddeningly off target. But the game is more than the storyline, it's the experience, and that much of things is quite solid indeed.
  5. A solid game that, on all platforms, performs admirably, draws you into the story, takes itself (and you) seriously, and does the genre proud. It's too thin around the waist to really tangle with the big boys.
  6. The shortness of the game doesn't give it very much replay value.

    Far too generic to be considered anything other than average. [Christmas 2005, p.114]
