Annie, get your gun!
Resembling an over-the-top and thoroughly modernized version of classic shooters like Commando and Ikari Warriors, A Fistful of Gun is a stylish, slick and enjoyable shooter but which suffers from a lack of depth. It's certainly entertaining when played in short bursts but you shouldn't expect to be playing it for very long. The game throws players back to the Old West but throws in a slightly bonkers tale of a shaman raising several gunslingers from the grave in order to take down a railway baron who's trying to build a track to Hell, presumably so he can party with the Devil. What follows is a deliciously OTT shooter, where you choose from one of eleven gunslingers, each with their own unique skills and traits, then make your way through several levels of vertically scrolling action. The blasting never lets up, while you can ride horses and trains, and cross wild rivers while spitting out a hail of lead from one of several cool guns. A Fistful of Gun certainly lives up to its name, and as far as pure action games go, this is sound stuff. The setting is interesting and original, while the visuals do a great job of bringing this strange tale to life. The environments and characters are simple enough, but there's plenty of special effects and vibrant use of color to catch the eye, although the music feels a little out of place. The controls are spot on, while the characters and range of modes give the game a bit of lasting appeal, although this is limited by the fact that the gameplay is very limited. While it lasts though, this is a fun ride.
