  1. The first time you take someone's head off with a quick-draw'll be hooked. [Holiday 2005, p.76]
  2. Gun is such a rich, panoramic story, chock-full of sneering bad guys, shoot-outs, can-can girls and jailbreaks, you'll wonder why no one ever thought of it before. [Official UK Xbox Magazine]
  3. Once you get past some of the technical issues, the game pulls you into the storyline and doesn't let go until you've finished the game.
  4. 80
    Thanks to one of the best storylines we've seen in quite a while (as well as a heaping helping of good old-fashioned violence), Gun isn't a gaming experience that we'll soon forget.
  5. Gun has a great story and it's presented with panache.
  6. It has great presentation; fantastic voice work; fun gun- and horseplay; and a free-roaming world that lets you do almost anything you want. However, even with all these great elements, it's too short to enjoy it all.
  7. Far too generic to be considered anything other than average. [Christmas 2005, p.114]

    This game is a true masterpiece! Thank you Neversoft for releasing this! Gun can not be compared to Red Dead Revolver. The two are similar in genre and little else. The animations in this game are spectacular, especially the horses. It is one of those rare titles that really shows the Xbox's prowess, making you wonder why the majority of them are so mediocre.

    I have to agree with most of the reviews on here. It's not groundbreaking by any means, and I was expecting to see a lot more towns while going through it. But I must say I had a lot of fun playing this game. It's short, doesn't elicit a replay and has some shoddy textures and isn't the prettiest game I've seen. But I still found myself playing it all night because the story was great, the shooting was fun (blood effects were very nice too), and the animations looked pretty spot on. All in all, a really fun game, but not worthy of a purchase. But rent it and you wont be disappointed. Expand

    It might not be an instant classic yet to this day I've never seen anything close to a wester movie like this game. The motion capture of animals, apaches and all in it is so realistic. The landscape gives you that western movie feeling, a sense of vast and freedom. An apache shot dropping dead from the side of his horse in slow motion during a quick draw shot it is a joy to see. There is much to value in the care taken to details. Can be improved for sure. There is no much strategy and it is pretty much straight forward and easy. On the other it is simply something fresh and new, well executed, unless u really hate western movies. Expand

    The best thing about this game is the originality...A Clint Eastwood type western shooter. I can only think of one other western Ive played. It starts off being a lot of fun, with an interesting story, with easy to learn controls. After midpoint though, it starts to lose most of its charm and the missions become a little monotonous and chore-like. Overall though, a game worth buying from the discount bin. Expand

    Murdeous "Preacher"? These game designers are hell-bound anti-Christs just looking for an excuse to make God look stupid by presenting a preacher in a bad light. Neversoft Entertainment go to hell! Expand
