Total! (Germany) (May, 1997)
Den Westernhelden Tin Star durch seine Woche zu begleiten bringt nicht nur eine Menge Action mit sich, sondern macht auch richtig Spaß. Die Firma Software Creations, die als Dream-Team-Mitglied auch für einige Nintendo-Projekte verantwortlich zeigte, hat bei der Programmierung ganze Arbeit geleistet. Das Game hat nicht nur Witz, Charme und eine stimmige Grafik, sondern vereinigt auch gute Spielbarkeit und luxuriöse Ausstattung in sich.
The gameplay is challenging and entertaining, it's a treat to look at, it has great music and you can even play it with the SNES mouse. Overall, it's a darn tootin' unqualified success. Get this if you like shooting gallery stuff.

While it's not only a shooter, I've always considered Nintendo the Disney of the video game industry and again it delivers an incredibly polished product that's well worth a look.

Tin Star's comedic twist stands out, but the jokes don't change and the game play's repetitive. Greenhorn desperadoes will find more pleasure here than experienced gamers.

Tin Star is a colorful western shooter that tries to be wacky, but for the most part, it just does the bare minimum of what’s required to be able to make its genre claims. While the western aspect is clearly at the core and manages to give you about what you’d expect, the cartoon side is best for wild proportions rather than actual jokes and the robotic angle only crops up at random times. Still, the shooting is responsive no matter what control type you tackle the game with and the game sets up a few interesting shooting galleries, it just whips them out a bit too often to keep things interesting.

Tinstar was clearly designed with the Super Scope light gun in mind. Yes, it's an unwieldy beast but it will improve your score and elevate your enjoyment of the game. I noticed the screen automatically brightens when you use the gun and unlike many light gun games, there are no annoying flashes. Tinstar turned out better than I expected. It's not terribly compelling but that Nintendo quality goes a long way.
