A bit easy to play, but sheer eye candy all around

The Good

The graphics. The high resolution graphics are absolutely gorgeous, and the level design is outstanding. If you think this game looks horrible, get your eyes checked. Anybody with a eye for design will say this game looks good, even by modern standards. The humor is good too, and reflects the 'redneck' style theme of the game perfectly. If you thought this game wasn't PC enough, you should get hold of the Cuss Pack! You'll end up burning in hell for it!

The Bad

It's a little bit easy across the skill levels, but that's all good if you're into repetition and like shooting things over and over. The game is a bit buggy as well, especially when exiting and quicksaving. The CD music's not the best either. I was expecting 'Beverly Hillbillies' style bluegrass music, but instead you get ear-bleeding ballads from the likes of Mojo Nixon and The Reverend Horton Heat. It's also somewhat frustrating that the source code hasn't been made open source, like Duke Nukem 3D and Shadow Warrior, as it would really benefit from a Windows compatible port.

The Bottom Line

An essential game in the collection of any FPS fanatic. The Hi-res textures and level design is a treat for fans of eye candy, and the un-PC humor is a defining characteristic of this game, especially with the 'Cuss Pack' add-on. Well worth getting hold of, a true classic.
