    One of the year's most shocking surprises gives us both an entertaining story and incredibly fun and constantly evolving gameplay.

    Evil West is an old-school banger, a reminder of the quick and sharp fun that action games can deliver. It has some flaws here and there, but the meat of the game is fast-paced and endlessly entertaining combat. Smacking vampires into clouds of red mist with a giant lightning gauntlet is something that every video game needs.

    Evil West manages to do a great job entertaining players and that’s what all games should do. Despite some mediocre writing and lack of memorable characters, Evil West delivers on its promise to provide players with an exhilarating gameplay experience.

    For all its superficial swagger, it'd be remiss to call Evil West a case of style over substance, because there's a deceptive amount of substance to its combat system and the vibrant world its set in–just the amount you'd want in such a game. It's a good game for a good while, before its relentless pace runs of steam in the final third when repetitive, tiresome battles highlight the limitations of a mostly solid combat system. With the ability to play the entirety of the campaign in co-op however (with appropriately scaled enemies), I wonder whether spreading the relentless heat between two players could actually be the best way to play the game, and I plan on finding out soon.

    Evil West doesn't even try to reinvent the wheel, but is pretty enjoyable although some technical flaws that we hope will be fixed in the coming weeks.

    Regardless of how you choose to play it, Evil West feels like the best version of the AAA "B-tier game" that we don't see as often as we used to. It's not technically polished and I wouldn't call it innovative, but it's mechanically solid and comes equipped with a lot of fun ideas that mostly pan out. Sometimes you just need a game to punch out some bad guys; it can feel familiar and straightforward, just as long as the punching feels good. Evil West fills that specific, but very relatable need quite well.

    Dumb, fun and full of western slang, Evil West has snuck out into a crowded release season with a unique selling point: fun, with very little nonsense.

Tan solo por lo que me he divertido le daría un 10 jeje pero bueno, ahí le casco el 8 porque supongo que hay que ser objetivos; el juego en sí goza de un gameplay tan frenético como divertido; sus gráficos igual no son next-gen pero se ven bastante bonitos y el diseño artístico está brutal; la historia a mi parecer cumple y cabe decir que ME ENCANTA la genial combinación de cowboys y vampiros, es que ufff... QUÉ BIEN QUE LE SIENTA!!! :) Expand

You go into a circular arena, spam all your cooldown abilities, kill bullet sponge enemies that aren't fun to fight, rinse and repeat. The level design is just boring, walking in a straight line to the next combat encounter just isn't compelling. Check it out if you want a bad god of war clone. Expand
