Dead Man’s Hand

XBox: The Official Magazine - - EXTRA -

One of the first games to make use of Xbox Live, this FPS felt like re­ally be­ing a cow­boy. This was be­fore the West was won by Rock­star, of course, and West­erns were an un­der­used but rich source of ma­te­rial for games to draw from. Be­fore this, there’d been only a hand­ful of no­table Wild West ar­cade games, like Gun.Smoke or Iron Horse, but here was a game with more than a lit­tle vis­ual flair and some nice touches, like play­ing poker be­tween lev­els. Team death­match on­line was laggy, but it still gave you the chance to posse up with your pals. Via a ‘trick shot’ me­chanic you could shoot hats off, and build up and fire-off a vol­ley of shots from your trusty re­volver, just like Clint East­wood.
