    OUTLAWS. A GAME OF THE OLD WEST. WHEN GUN CONTROL MEANT LOADING QUICKLY AND SHOOTING STRAIGHT.

    The gameplay's packed with strategy, puzzles, and plenty of gun fighting action. First person shooter action lets you set your sights and pull the trigger. After you gun down the last outlaw you'll ride off triumphantly into the sunset.

    Get ready for the good, the bad, and the even worse. As Marshall James Anderson, you'll face a horde of ornery, gun-slinging outlaws. You'll shoot your way through a twisted plot of greed and revenge. You'll arm yourself with firearms, as well as your wits. You'll fight alone, or engage in multi-player gameplay over modem, LAN or Internet. So go ahead, and make your day.

    When outlaws murdered your wife, and took your daughter, everything you had was gone. Your gut aches for blood and sweet revenge. Dyin's too good for 'em now!
