  1. Control is stiff and floaty, while boss battles often require stubborn persistence instead of strategy. [July 2004, p.95]
  2. Take away the horses, squinty eyes, six-shooters and five o’ clock shadows, and this cowpoke goes from deadeye to dead on arrival.
  3. Falls short in almost every aspect of a western style shooter. Fans of the arcade style of run and gun gameplay will find some value in the game but for the most part fans of the shooter genre will find an excellent concept for a game gone a stray.

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

    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.
