Do you look back on the days in the arcade blasting villains for a high score with nostalgia? Because that is exactly what I first thought of when I started playing through the addictive story. I'll give you my first impressions about halfway through the game right here:
9.5/10. It's great for what it is, and it's really a diamond in the gutter.
At heart, it's an arcade shooter, and that's absolutely refreshing and tons of fun. There's loads of replay value in the forms of little "nuggets of truth," the tidbits of historical info, and the drive to get a great combo going. I would also like to make special note of the voice acting and soundtrack, as they hearken back to proper Westerns in all the ways you'd expect. The soundtrack is really beautiful on occasion. The story is told in the background of your actions, and it's both a good story and a well-acted one. The gunplay is very fun, as is the sense of progression.
However, there are some minor gripes I have with the game:
-Graphical fidelity is all over the place, and there is some kind of weird issue where it looks to be lower-resolution than it actually is, or that could be a fault with the aesthetic that seems to make everything blend into the background. It is either a very pretty game, or a god-ugly disaster depending on the area. There are some borders along the screen, and while it adds to the effect, I want the option to turn them off.
-Duels. They suck, and frankly they don't add much to the game. Good thing you're not doing too many of them, and regular boss fights are actually very fun.
Buy it as fast as you can and get going!
