Is It Any Good?

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

Gameplay is often clumsy and hard to deal with. Players rely mostly on manually aiming Red's pistols with the left and right analog sticks. Red does have Dead Eye mode, but this feature is limited to only a few uses per battle, and is rarely effective. There are some creative touches, though: Unusual characters break genre stereotypes.

The game merges the kitschy charm of a spaghetti western with the characteristically violent adult realism for which Rockstar games have become famous. Blood streams from gunshot wounds, and dying characters let out cries of desperation. While the violence in the game prevents it from being appropriate for kids, mature players may enjoy the unique takes on the Old West.

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.
