  • Summary: A blazing arcade-style third person game fueled by precision gunplay, Red Dead Revolver is a classic tale of vengeance on the untamed frontier. The addictively fun, innovative combat scheme rewards accurate and ruthless elimination of backwater lowlifes. Ride down outlaws on horseback, fight bloody duels aboard trains, command stagecoaches and more in your quest for justice. Punctuated with dark humor and filled with the elements that make the Wild West so compelling, Red Dead Revolver's story is told through full motion cutscenes and breathtaking in-game visuals.

  1. Wild West shooter that's like a cool breeze in Death Valley. Yeehaw! [Jan 2007, p.106]
  2. The pacing, boss designs and core gameplay are pick up and play easy, but with all the unlockable goodies doled out for replaying the game and finishing up levels with a dead aim and speedy trigger finger offer enough for those perfectionists to get the most out of the game.
  3. There is a surprisingly fun multiplayer mode for up to four players to shoot it out or have a duel.
  4. The best in a limited line of Western shooters.
  5. Nothing more than an average execution of an above-average idea. And here's an idea for next time, how about some online play?
  6. Graphically, the title is definitely clocking in at “adequate”, with sometimes lumpy characters and stiff animations.
  7. Take away the horses, squinty eyes, six-shooters and five o’ clock shadows, and this cowpoke goes from deadeye to dead on arrival.

    It's not great, especially since most of the gameplay is either generic or just flat out cliche. But Red Dead Revolver still offers some impressive visuals, great scenery, and funny dialog. Expand

    Rockstar se desprende otro juego sand box sobre las consecuencias de vivir en el viejo oeste, no está nada mal, pero un punto criticable es la tediosa jugabilidad y los gráficos sin nada de otro mundo, pero el juego se hace un amigo cuando se le atrapa el truco. Sin otras palabras, si jugaron éste juego es NECESARIO jugar "Red Dead Redemption" es totalmente mejorado y más apasionante. Expand

    Rescued from cancellation by Rockstar Games Red Dead Revolvers strained development is all too obvious in the games lack of polish, both in terms of visuals and gameplay. Despite this there are enough interesting ideas in this third-person shooter to ensure it never becomes a chore to play and, if nothing else, it provided the template for the fantastic follow up Red Dead Redemption.
