I'm crouched, hiding in a bush. I see my enemy, but he doesn't see me, yet
. I draw my bow back, slow my breathing, aim center mass, & let the arrow fly. He goes down with a groan. I slowly exit my hide & creep over to the body, making sure not to alert any nearby enemies I haven't spotted. I retrieve my arrow, which has pinned his forearm to his chest.
Great FPS Wild West style! This is NOT
an easy game, even on easiest difficulty. You can run 'n gun, but that tactic will only get you so far. Some parts require stealth, which adds to the difficulty, but also the fun. And yes, you can retrieve your arrows!
Good character development, decent story, loads of authentic weapons from the time period (and a few not-so-authentic), fun to play, horse riding sim, horse thief sim
Nice little detail: firearms will blow up in your hand if they overheat, causing injury
Compared to other FPS's, certain parts of this game are very difficult, although pretty realistic. This may not be such a bad thing, though. Using the whip to ascend, swing, jump, then cling to an outcropping can be tricky & frustrating, but can be very useful to get above your enemies, especially in a canyon setting.
Having to pick up boxes and drop them in order to climb up/over things is a pain which looks and feels clunky. When you quick save, everything freezes for like 10 seconds (gameplay, music, SFX), which kind of detracts from the immersive first person environment.
10/10 The best horse thief sim I've ever played!
