This game is great! The violence is bad, but it is not gory. Blood doesn't ooze out or anything, there is just a red puff. In Showdowns, though, it gets kind of nasty. You hear the bullet enter, making a gross sound, and then blood (fake looking) shoots out all around the entry point. then, in slow-motion the blood and the body falls to the ground. The blood disappears when it hits the ground. There is never any blood stains, and the body disappears s well after a while. Alchohol can be bought in saloons. Educational content is interesting as well. 4 Stars.
