Final Breakdown


A good motion system, but entirely lousy gameplay mechanics make Gun a bad title.


On the PS2, it's bad; on the Xbox360, the reuse of textures and the blockiness of terrain and character models become highly apparent.

Sound and Music:

Passable voice acting, and the musical score isn't terrible, but the repetition gets old very quickly.


Not terribly difficult, just repetitive. Loss inside missions is more a function of bad gameplay design than player error, many times.

Controls and Interface:

A few buttons mapped to the same function ("talk" and "mount horse" for instance) can really hurt a title, and Gun's a textbook example of how.


Skip it, and wait for a better western title.
