Fun but short I liked this game especially with Kris Kristofferson doing Ned's voice...(Should have had more of him in it) Gameplay is short, I beat it in less than a day. I liked it but like one other person said, you better have something else to play after this....more info
Best Western Game Ever! If u are looking for an authentic feeling western game then this is it. More of a modern-revisionist western than old spaghetti westerns but it is very fun. the story is a tale of revenge that takes you on an adventure thru the old west. the cut-scenes and graphics are really good. As for the game play, its very open ended. There are structured missions you will go on, but there's also a number of other activities you can do; mining gold, hunting, buying upgrades for weapons, horseback riding. There are side-missions too (like gta) to get your stats up.
The game is really violent. That may be a pro or con depending on what u want. The character starts with three main weapons: 6 shooter, rifle, & bowie knife. over the course of the game u get new stuff (bows, shotguns, sniper, hatchet). there are also molotov cocktails and dynamite sticks to blow people up with. The action is very fast-paced and bloody. Hitting R2 will switch the game to 1st-person shooter and everything slows down. Then you can take your time gunning down enemies. Actually blowing people's guts and brains everywhere is not the most violent part of the game though. After u shoot somebody down, while they're squirming on the ground u can take your knife and scalp them. But what would u really expect from a game called 'Gun' with a bullet-holed skull on the cover?
Overall this game is TOO SHORT! it's really action-packed, violent, has a good story...basically everything i look for in a game, but iI beat it like a week! Some of u gamers could probaly beat it in one night! Worth a look at though if ur into action games tho. By far, this is the best western video game ever made...more info
Finally.... A Really Good Game This is the first mature game ive bought and i think they did a great job. It's too easy to get hooked. If ya get bored theres plenty to do and alot of places to wander off to. Hope they make another one and throw some more stuff in there that doesnt go along with the story. Something like being real bad, posse comes looking for you or something. It's worth buying, the PSP one is good fun also....more info
Not nearly as bad as everyone says it is... I am scratching my head as to why everyone thinks that Gun is such a terrible game. I bought it a few weeks ago at a reduced price, and I really enjoy the game. The graphics are quite nice, the voice acting is really good, and the gameplay itself is entertaining. I really enjoy the open Western environment in the game.
Basically, Gun is structured like a Grand Theft Auto game in that once you pass the first few missions, you find yourself in an open environment that you are free to explore, take up side missions, or start the actual missions of the game. Some of the side missions include ranching, participating in the pony express, working as a bounty hunter and arresting or killing fugitives, playing Texas Hold'Em at the saloon, and hunting wild game. Completing these missions will improve your characters' abilities, such they do tie in to the overall picture.
Gun features a Quickdraw mode of fire, which is essentially the same feature used in Max Payne which slows down gameplay and allows you to make precise targeted shots.
Another feature I like about Gun is the fact that your character is able to buy weapons and items, such as weapon upgrades, to improve his overall strength. You earn money through completing missions and side missions, mining for gold, and winning at gambling.
Many people complain that Gun is too short and that the overall story is not very in-depth. While there is some truth to this, you should not pass up your chance to play Gun now that it is reduced to $20. In fact, this game is actually a steal at $20. It is a much better game than people give it credit for. ...more info
a blood soaked epic western storyline GUN is a hyped TPS it is devoped by the same team who brought us tony hawk. the game takes place in the 1890's. in and during the old west near kansas in the begging the protraginst cole white a man who should be in the age range of, 24, betwenn 29 is on a hunting game with his father. which is the basic tourtoul the abord a ship that is attacked by indins. the ship blows apart but cole survies after 3 days he wakes up at the edge of the lake or river or what not. that is i will not spoil the rest. but gun takes a lot if populrey elements and puts it in one game. examples include.
slow mo shooting from max payne you can get this by nailing head shots or cool ways of killing. it works with only pistols. but with any other gun it would be to easy. it also goes to A FPS in the 10-15 seconds you use this.
many mature aspects.
while always a conteversy it is also populry. In GUN youll see a lot of it to. blowing a guys head apart and watching brain and tissue fly while the corpse. just sparys froming a puddle. scalping is what has gotten this game contercovsly. a sclap is when a person whos. dieing on the floor get's a knife taken to to there neck. it's excatrated to say the least. also if you kill a person with a cannon there limbs fly. so expect to see an arm or a leg after you blow up dynimyte of fire a cannon. there is also the abilty to set a person on fire or stab them with a knife while the are 100% still alive and there idea of a epic cutscene is. haveing a mans fingers being blown off slitting thorats. shooting a man with a shotgun out a 3rd story window and sticking a rifle in a mans mouth and then.... pulling the trigger. the language is not what is in GTA, the wariors, or the godfather. but it does keep a consistent flow of S and B words. the S word is used over a Dozen times. if you play through the game the B word will be used almost 50 times. the enemys death cry. is commanly you B!#ch or Son of a B!$*h
GUN features 100% free roam side missons included. the map is not that big with only 2 citys. but it is the old west. with no cars. or faster transportion then. a horse and buggy. but the horse is what you will be riding most of the time.
the games story foucus on revange but interduces. implyed sexul acts. backstabbing twists. hearing amazing things. flashbacks. ETC saying that the voice acting is also gold thomas Janes voice as colton and pretty much everbodys voice. is done in true fashion
the things to complain about in GUN is the lack of online and being short the main game takes about 8 to 10 hours to finish.
Very short and limited This game would have been a lot better if it were more similar to GTA. I was looking forward to making my way over a vast area and maybe parking it on a high rock and picking off indians and other innocent people and animals with a broader range of weapons. The levels were a since to get through.
A GREAT GAME. YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE IN A WESTERN. I'VE PLAYED THIS GAME OVER AND OVER AGAIN. THIS IS ACTUALLY THE ONLY GAME I FINISHED. YOU CAN SAVE YOUR PROGRESS ANYTIME. VERY FEW GAMES, I FIND CAN BE PLAYED OVER AGAIN WITHOUT GETTING BORED. NOT THIS ONE. YOU CAN RIDE A HORSE, WHICH BY THE WAY ACTUALLY RIDES LIKE A REAL HORSE. SHOOT OUT THE BAD GUYS ON HORSEBACK. SHOWDOWNS, EVERYTHING YOU CAN ASK FOR IN A GAME. IT HAS A GOOD STORY TO IT. I WISH THERE WOULD BE A GUN 2. GRAPHICS ARE VERY GOOD FOR A VIDEO GAME. YOU CAN ACTUALLY SEE DUST WHEN YOU ARE RIDING A HORSE. YOU CAN CHANGE FROM 3RD PERSON TO IST PERSON SHOOTER. BETTER GAME THAN RED DEAD REVOLVER AND DEAD MAN'S HAND FROM X-BOX. GREAT GAME, BUT FOR ADULTS. BLOOD, SEXUAL OVERTONES, MURDER. OR SUPERVISED BY AN ADULT. THANK YOU....more info
Near Masterpiece Absolutely terrific game! Includes great graphics and music, and, most important, an absorbing story that grabs you from the start. Gun was the kick-in-the-pants I needed after getting through the tedious first Splinter Cell. It's as engrossing as the first Max Payne, and I hope--though I doubt it'll happen--it eventually spawns a sequel. ...more info
gun this is a very fun game if you like cowboys and indians thew controls are realatively simple it has classic cowboy action,riding horses shooting bad guys fighting indians and a twist of fighting with indians overall the game was fun and mildly suspensefull but really short there are side missions but if you follow the story and do just the main objectives the game takes about 4 hours to beat but fun none the less...more info
GUN review I bought this for my brother and from I hear, he really enjoys it. I played it for a few minutes and it is fun. Has a GTA feel to it but a little harder to control (probably until you get used to the game). For the price, I think it is probably worth picking up....more info
GET THIS GAME!!! You will not be dissapointed by buying this game! If you like RPGs, Action, and/or Adventure games, you'll love this one. There is soooooo much to do! Even after you've beat the game. With the huge maps, tons of free roaming space, and exciting side missions, you can play for hours without even starting the main mission. The sound and graphics are just about the best I've ever seen! The mian story is also awesome. It's easy to follow and tons of fun to play! Buy this!!!!!...more info
DISAPPOINTED! I normally don't play first person shooter type games because I don't have the quick gaming reflexes necessary to play such games and most games don't have effective ways of controlling your character/aiming & shooting. I took a chance on this game though because it sounded interesting. I couldn't get past the poor aiming and firing controls to delve deeper into the game. The voice acting for the two main characters in the game was really good and the graphics were pretty good, but I couldn't play the game for more than the hour it took to learn the controls and play a ways into the game. People that play FPS games a lot may enjoy this game, but it wasn't for me. ...more info
"It's over already?" I'm going to keep this short because the game doesn't deserve a review longer than the actual game play. great idea, tons of fun, addictive, and SHORT. my only complaint, just when i was digging the game, i beat it. alittle disappointing, definitely worth $20, just make sure you have something else to do after you beat it....more info
Fantastic Game I am a recreational gamer. In other words, I take the PS2 on business trips with me and I play when my wife goes for a girls night out (or more often a PTO meeting). I am a fan of Westerns and this game was great. The storyline, the graphics, the different weapons, and the difficulty were perfect for me. Because I don't play a lot, I get very frustrated with games that are too long or too hard to beat. Some have complained that the game is too short. It is short, but that was great for me. I was able to finish the game on one business trip.
You do have to do all of the side missions in order to gather enough skill, strength, and weaponry to beat the game. The one drawback I found was that once you have started a mission, there is no way to leave it and go back to town to do side missions. The first time I tried to play, I got stuck trying to kill Reed. I ended up having to start over and I made sure to complete more side missions the second time through. But, I should have known better! My only other complaint is that the language is a bit rough at times, enough that it is a bit distracting.
Old West action "Gun" is a very solid western game with "grand theft auto" style freedom to choose your missions and what you want to do. It has a great storyline, outstanding voice acting, smooth gameplay and very good graphics. Unfortunately, the game also feels a little too short and it never quite maximizes the western landscape. Some of the side missions will take you out into the country but a lot of the territory doesn't have much to do with anything. Overall, this is a very good game and well worth your time. The fact that it leaves you wanting more probably says something about how good the gameplay is....more info
GLITCH OF DEATH By the time I played the game it was already two years old so I already knew that there were going to be antiquated issues to deal with. What I didn't realize at the time was there was going to be the glitch of death. As I started playing the game I was hooked and the story line was pretty good. It kept me wanting to invest my precious time playing the game. Now to the catch. You cannot buy weapons in this game, only upgrades. As part of the story line you have to lose your weapons. It does not matter how much money you earn during the game, you can never buy weapons. You loses your weapons at least twice in the game. The second time you lose your weapons and I thought that the game gave them back to me and it didn't. I saved the game and there are no cheat codes or nothing to get your weapons back and you cannot buy new weapons. Well I had to fight an end boss without my weapons and there was simply no way to beat the guy without starting the game over. Too many other games out there that beat this game hands down. I chose to sell it instead of starting over again. Thanks for wasting my time activision. Buyer another western like red dead revolver instead, one that does not have this foolish glitch. How can you beat an end boss without weapons. This mistake should not happen in a game, but then again this is an activision game. If it weren't for this glitch and I could have finished the game it would have gotten at least a high three stars or four stars....more info
Great Western Style Game Hey, if your in to westerns and like shoot'em ups and a challenge then this is the game for you. This game rocks with many differant objectives and the graphics are great for the PS2. In this game you will be on your toes trying to complete each task. The only thing I don't like about the game is the theme music but over all this game is edictive and fun....more info
Stereo Typical Old West Adventure Many people play video games to escape from reality for a short time. Within the vast selection of escape games, such as the Grand Theft Autos, this game offers a unique escape back to a time when life was moving at a different pace. I'm not saying this game is historically factual and I'm not saying this game is slow. What I am saying is this game is different. Wild West games are not new but I believe this is one of the best done. It has an interesting story line, the landscape is well done, and the missions within the game play are well thought out. There is also a certain amount of open end playing in this game. You can pick and choose what missions to complete next or you can choose to just ride around for while. It does not stray far from the stereo typical old west. Cowboys are cowboys and Indians are Indians and, of course, every gunslinger or cowboy is a drinker and is looking forward to their next visit to the town's house of ill repute. In fact, your health is refilled by taking a chug on your whiskey bottle. I found the targeting and control system friendly and easy to use. The quick draw mode is especially useful. I've had this game for a couple years but still like to pull it out and picture myself as the mysterious dark stranger that just rode into town with Colt 45's ready for anything that may come my way. My only complaint is that it could be a little more exciting and the soundtrack isn't much more than background sound effects. It isn't perfect but it is worth it....more info
Great poduction value with plenty of play time, but no reply value This game is amazing. The cast is all-star, and the direction is completely out of any video game's league.
Violence and brutality are depicted as the bedmate of any Westerner, as one would expect with an M rated shooter named "Gun."
My only complaint, and I stress "only," is the lack of replay value....more info
