Once in development by Capcom and then put on death row, Red Dead Revolver has been saved from the hangman by Rockstar Games. Not only has Red escaped the rope, but it has also evolved into a brilliant third-person action game loaded with style, technique, and clever homages to the Wild West.
Unsere Hoffnungen wurden bestätigt: Endlich darf man stilecht im Wilden Westen Schurken in die ewigen Jagdgründe schicken. Bis auf wenige Schwächen, wie bei der recht hakligen Bar-Schlägerei, hat Rockstar alles richtig gemacht! Die schönen, abwechslungsreichen Levels befriedigen jeden Western-Fan. Durch das actiongeladene "Dollars für Treffer"-System spielt man manche Level mehrmals, um beste Ergebnisse zu erreichen. Selbst wenn alle Cheats und Extras freigespielt sind, legt man immer wieder gerne die Hand an den Revolver. Für das Sequel wünschen wir uns allerdings einen online Multiplayer-Modus. Also: Jeder Pistolero im Lande muss Red Dead Revolver haben - das perfekte Spiel fürs Sommerloch!

The gun targeting system is generally well implemented, but frustrating at times - particularly with fast moving opponents. But if the old west strikes your fancy, I reckon you'd be a coot not to pony up the cash and take a shot at Red Dead Revolver.
No final das contas, o game prioriza essa homenagem em detrimento de outros aspectos importantes de um título de sucesso. Aqueles que não apreciem esse aspecto provavelmente verão "Red Dead Revolver" como um jogo medíocre. Mas quem souber ler essa linguagem terá a oportunidade de experimentar o que deve ser o melhor jogo de faroeste já feito.

I really enjoyed the time I spent with this title, yet walked away wishing that it had a little bit more meat on its bones. If you find satisfaction in mindless action games in the tradition of Max Payne, you'll surely get your fill with Red Dead Revolver.
The story behind the development of Red Dead Revolver is nearly more interesting than the in-game story. Originally, the title was being developed by Angel Studios as a zany arcade shooter for Capcom. Rockstar acquired the development house along with the rights to the game, and after a swift renaming of the studio to Rockstar San Diego, it set about converting the title into far grittier and authentic fare. Well, it does have a hard-man reputation to uphold.
Red Dead Revolver se place comme une excellente surprise. A l'annonce de l'arrêt de son développement par Capcom, on pouvait penser que le titre souffrait de plusieurs défauts majeurs. Il faut croire que Rockstar a su redresser la barre car le résultat final se révèle être un titre aux qualités indéniables.
Its heart is in the right place, but Red Dead Revolver tries to go in too many directions at once. There are too many different playable characters and too many unique gameplay elements that just don't gel. And though the story is well told, there's just not enough focus on Red. If you can forgive Red Dead Revolver for its hubris, you'll find a game with some great style and enough fun moments to justify the rough edges. It may not have what it takes to bring about a full-fledged Western revival in the world of video games, but it's an honest try.

A game with the hype that Red Dead Revolver had should be able to back it up on the screen. But the game falls short a little in some areas that I wouldn't say kill the game, but will cause some question marks or frustration. I'd say overall it's an ok game, but nothing more than an average execution of an above-average idea. And here's an idea for next time, how about some online play? Anyway, I would say Red Dead is a rental for sure, but nothing more than that. It's just too average a game for me.
Red Dead Revolver isn’t as quick in the draw as we’d like it to be but its action-packed moments are surprisingly thrilling. The game’s controls and visuals could have used some extra attention but it’s hard to not appreciate its finer moments, its plentiful extras and a too-hard-to-put-down multiplayer mode. If you love a good Western give this one a shot. If you’re not, this one still makes a great weekend rental.
Drinking. Gambling. Roughhousing. Damsels and drunks. Outlaws and officers. Cowboys and Indians. Robbing banks and standing your ground in a duel. Those old Western folklore's you've probably heard about certainly were wild, weren't they? This was a time that saw the progress of the first American railroads, gave birth to several historic figures such as Billy the Kid and Jesse James, and has made it possible for the tales and the legends to live on or serve as a basis for some original creations throughout cinema and video game mediums alike. Red Dead Revolver isn't based on a true story, though. But, since we haven't seen many Western-themed shooters, at least not in a while, Rockstar figured they'd grant the wishes of those who've been waiting on this previously canceled 2003 release from Capcom.
Nous voilà en présence d’un excellent jeu d’action qui rappelle l’ambiance des ses chers aînés Mc Dog Mc Cree ou encore Sunset Riders, et qui saura combler tous les amateurs de western par son ambiance et le plaisir qu’il procure.
As far as anyone can remember, Western-style shooters of some kind have graced the videogame area. Whether it was Custard's Last Stand, Desperado, Freddie Farkas, Gunsmoke, Sunset Riders, Mad Dog McCree, or even Lethal Enforcers 2, the good old Western has been a staple gamers' could rely on, until recently, that is. When Surreal Games and Activision demoed Gunslinger at E3 in 2000, the fever for the dusty, relentless Western rose once again, only to be cut brutally short. Now, after acquiring Capcom Entertainment's once promising Red Dead Revolver from a sure hanging, the master of all things mafia, guns and style is giving us its take on the Western, revitalizing not only the game, the shooter theme along with it.
It’s been a heck of a long time since being a cowboy was considered cool - I’d say at least twenty years. Surely there are readers who will reckon to argue, citing country music’s recent surge in mainstream popularity – which thanks to the likes of Garth Brooks has somehow justified cowboy attire as formal wear (egad!) – but just because an idiot throws on a ten gallon hat and boots, he ain’t no cowboy…he’s probably just balding.
Stuck in limbo for some time, Red Dead has risen from it's grave, but is ultimately left half-standing, Red himself lacks the heroic resonance to compel you to fight his battle, and the gameplay - while littered with fantastic ideas - fails to achieve a cohesive Western vision due to balancing issues and surfacing execution. The seeds are in place for a magnificent series, though, so perhaps a sequel could bring the ambitious concepts introduced here to fruition.
Rockstar Games has been desperately trying to develop a third pillar outside of Grand Theft Auto and Max Payne that will stick with gamers. Manhunt didn't cut it and Midnight Club just isn't popular enough. This time Rockstar sought success in the west...the old west.
Last year, the strange winds of business blew San Diego's Angel Studios into the hands of Rockstar, and the long-prophesied Red Dead Revolver was a leaf in the current. Once promised by Capcom, the game has been in what Hollywood calls "development hell" forever, where it probably had shelf space next to Kevin Costner's Open Range. Full of sagebrush and unshaven bad guys, it's a very arcade-like shooter that pits the violently orphaned Red against the dastardly varmints what killed his family.
