  • Summary: [WiiWare] Draw your revolver to see if you're the fastest gun in the West. Adjust your speed and precision as targets or enemies appear in front of you. Point and shoot to earn more points. You can aim at anything, so be sure to explore the environment for elements that will earn you more shooting points. Identify your enemies among the characters you encounter, but don't shoot at innocent citizens. Take part in an Old West-style train attack, or challenge your skills in a variety of increasingly difficult shooting challenges in other beautiful, classic and lively Western environments. As you progress through challenges, you'll earn medals and rewards, making for nonstop, addictive action. Play in a two-player multiplayer mode where you and your partner can combine points, or play against each other to find out who's the fastest gun in the West. [Gameloft] Expand

  1. If only it had online high-score tables and a few more stages, we might have given it a Gold Award. [Oct 2008, p.96]
  2. Not dissimilar to "Point Blank" and, likewise, better in small blasts. [Nov 2008, p.85]
  3. Gameloft has crafted an addictive and attractive game with enough gameplay to keep you coming back for short blasts every once in a while, but there's not really enough meat on the bones to hold your attention for prolonged play sessions.
  4. Neither bad nor ugly, but reasonably good. [Nov 2008, p.73]
  5. Though the presentation is tight, the gameplay is quite dated and repetitive, and at $10 (and 300 blocks of Wii memory) it's no bargain.
  6. 58
    Considering the production values and repetition, Wild West Guns is probably pushing it with a $10 price point, but for those looking to swap their virtual crossbow for a slightly less-enticing six-gun, this throwback shooter very nearly justifies the investment.
  7. Link’s Crossbow training and Ghost Squad offer more in-depth gameplay and more fun for a similar price.
