    No matter how many years pass, how much gaming industry changes, there will always be space for games like 12 Is Better Than 6 and an audience to appreciate, buy and enjoy them. Sergio Leone would be proud of it!

    It’s fun, looks great, elicits a lot of tense moments as you run into an empty room to reload your shotgun before a small band of soldiers comes marching through to their death.

    12 Is Better Than 6 is a tribute to the Western genre and takes deep inspiration from Hotline Miami.

    A game as brutal, simple and fun as Hotline Miami besides being too short and repetitive over time.

    A creative take on the top-down shooter genre and, had it had more opportunities for me to run into a room guns blazing, it may have been my new favourite. The hand drawn art style is unlike anything I’ve seen before and I can’t wait to see if the developers create something new with the same idea in mind. If you’re looking for a game that will have you crying with rage one second and laughing in triumph the next, 12 is Better Than 6 is definitely worth a playthrough or two.

Have you ever killed two people with 2 bullet in a Top-Down game? Loads of blood, violence and superlightning-speeded gunplays. All of that packed into the style of pen and paper. Of course there were some issues with navigation through the maps, but al the thing is already fixed. Thanks to devs. Expand

    What I especially liked about '12 s better than 6' is a smart design - cool hand drawing, only three colors. Looks really beautiful. Plenty ofWhat I especially liked about '12 s better than 6' is a smart design - cool hand drawing, only three colors. Looks really beautiful. Plenty of different types of guns - I even didn't here about some of them before. Why not the highest score - the game seemed too bloody for me, but someone will appreciate it more than great design :-) Tastes differ. Expand

This era hadThis game is a real monument of culture and, at the same time, it’s the caricature of the bloody-bloody time for the Wild West. This era had given a new genre for the world cinematography - Westerns. The one with the characters in sombreros, bars, spaced into pieces, where the smell of beef in a spicy sauce is everywhere. (or may be that’s just a dead coyote - who knows?) This game seemed to absorb all of the cliches related to the genre. And that’s really cool!
    This is the first game in my gaming experience with such a racy theme. Thanks to the developers, who were able to create such convincing and stylish world of Wild West, that from the first minutes of gameplay I began to associate myself with this desperate guy, who, probably, smokes peyote with someone who’s name is Don Juan.
    To tell the truth, I'm not a big fan of stealth genre, but this game captivated me with its atmosphere, its music,archetypal characters, funny details, like, for.ex., drying clothes, horses feeding hay, big rats and so on.
    I also like the dynamics of the game, where a cozy saloon rapidly turns into a mess of human bodies and broken furniture.
    Keep your finger on the trigger and you’ll survive this massacre. =) That’s the only way. =)

It has got an interesting plot, pretty interesting gameplay, great (really!) soundtrack, and unusual art style. In case if you are into Western culture and like Western movies and games, I definitely recommend this game. Hopefully, the developers are going to add more content to the game, I'm waiting for multi-player or co-op. Expand

Не в том плане что они похожи, но в сущности стилистика у них одна и та же, вид сверху и т.д. Сеттинг Дикого Запада очень нравится, но по сути нет ни одной полностью реализованной игры про Дикий Запад, с элементами полной свободы и открытого мира (знаю есть серия игр Call of Juarez, но там немного другое, там линейность; есть Red Dead Redemption и он эксклюзив для консолей, но я RDR считаю на данный момент лучшей игрой вестерн; ещё 26 октября 2018 года выйдет Red Dead Redemption II, но это уже совсем другая история).

    На Hotline Miami она похожа только стилистикой, все остальное там оригинальное. Атмосфера совсем другая, ещё бы - это Дикий Запад, а ни здания с толпой головорезов, которых всех придется убить. Хотя в этой игре по моему тоже нужно было всех убить без остатка и потом идет перенаправление на другой уровень. Я к тому, что в 12 is Better Than 6 - это делается более элегантно и со своей изюминкой. Кстати оригинальность стилистики тоже присутствует - "красная кровь брызгает на белый фон".

    Сюжет довольно примитивный, но он есть (мексиканец-раб все мстит). Тем не менее в игру постепенно вливаешься и играешь уже спокойно и без напряженности, а затем проходишь ее полностью (ещё есть дополнение). Выбор оружие не большой, но он я считаю огромный и не нужен, опять же это Дикий Запад - там по сути вообще нет альтернативы, а особенно в оружии. Мне лично практически всегда нравилось бегать с револьверами, в сразу веет атмосферой того времени. Спокойный и не торопливый саундтрек, сопровождает игрока по ходу всего прохождения и это добавляет теплоты и некого морального устоя, тебе просто приятно.
