Red Dead Re­volver

XBox: The Official Magazine - - EXTRA -

Rock­star San Diego ex­plored a new fron­tier that proved fer­tile. Play­ers mostly took the role of bounty hunter Red Har­low, but sec­tions of the game were played through the per­spec­tive of char­ac­ters such as tough rancher An­nie Stoakes, each with a story that tapped into Western movie tropes. Typ­i­cal of Rock­star’s evolv­ing id­iom, the game was full of car­toon vi­o­lence and funny di­a­logue, plus mem­o­rable and tough boss fights with bril­liantly lu­di­crous vil­lains like dy­na­mite-lov­ing Pig Josh, cow-lov­ing Hol­stein Hal and cigar-lov­ing show­girl Bad Bessie. In­no­va­tive gun­fights fea­tured the slo-mo ‘Dead­eye’ sys­tem to give you the edge, while mul­ti­player had some great game modes like the High Noon gun duel, lit­er­ally a 1-4 player quick-draw to the death.
