Great game, loved it from beginning to end. I've always been a huge western fan in both movies and video games. Theres just nothing like shootin' em up with a .44 revolver.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (8 ):

While White's world can be quite striking -- leaves fall from trees in green valleys while frogs croak and crickets chirp in the background -- the Wild West presented here is underpopulated, and players soon realize they are in a small, sterile territory. Exploring it gets old fast. Ultimately, there is too little to do. Even side missions, such as hunting rare animals and capturing wanted criminals dead or alive, seem tacked-on and grow repetitive.

The 18 story missions in the game rush players along, and can easily be finished in five to six hours. In the end, the violence comes off as simply gratuitous. This is definitely not for kids.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
