  • Summary: Learn the ways of the Wild West as a bounty hunter seeking vengeance. Red Dead Revolver tells the story of Red, a man on a mission to kill General Diego--the rogue Mexican general who murdered Red's family for gold. As Red, you'll have a variety of weapons to choose from, including pistols, rifles, shotguns, and dynamite. Dusty towns, windswept prairies, rugged saloons--the game integrates all of the elements of a classic Western movie. Expand

  1. Red Dead Revolver could very well be THE game to keep the Old West genre from riding off into the sunset once and for all.
  2. Not as deep as "Manhunt" or "GTA" but some of the best fun you'll have with a bottle of firewater and some very old guns. [GamesMaster]
  3. It’s definitely better then Atari’s own "Dead Man’s Hand."

    The omission of Live play is unfortunate, as being able to duel your friends, or take on co-operative missions would have added an extra depth to the overall experience and added to the replayability of the game.
  5. The creative use of player control to determine the gameplay and story delivery is an industry-leading feature.
  6. When we say that Red Dead is a great little game, the emphasis is as much on the 'little' as it is on the 'great'. [June 2004, p.102]

    A marginally entertaining third-person shooter whose only real asset is a decent level of personality.

    It's about time a western shooter comes out, especially one that is fun and stays true to the genre. The story is simple but classic, the action is fast and gritty, and the multiplayer is addicting. Plus dueling rules, its unique and challenging. My only reason for giving it a nine instead of ten is that the graphics could have been a little sharper. For what they are though they do the theme justice. Anyone looking for a good ol' time in the west, Clint "spagetti western" Eastwood style should pick this one up. Expand

    Lots of fun, graphics could be touched up, and the handeling too. But all in all its pretty fun.

    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.

    This game did not live up to my expectations. The graphict were not that great. It could have been alot better. If your looking for a good game along the same lines try Dead Man's Hand. I would not recommend Red Dead Revolver. Expand
