The spaghetti western angle is well realized but, overall, nothing new is offered in this fast-paced arcade game. Sombrero Spaghetti Western Mayhem has music and navigation screens worthy of a Sergio Leone film, but at its core, the game is fairly bland. The two gameplay options (couch play offline or online) are nice, but the problem with the online element is that there aren't any others frequently in the game's lobby to play with, leaving the only viable option someone sitting next to you. Blame this on the online network having only one server (located on the East Coast) with no one on it. While Sombrero has some nice ideas, the major problem is that this is a "been there, done that" game with not a lot of innovation. The look is pleasant, and the music fits the theme, but there doesn't seem to be enough novelty to set the game apart or bring players back time and time again.
