Did You Know?


The "Rolling Block Rifle" is based on the Remington Rolling Block Sporting Rifle fitted with a Long Malcolm scope. See more »


When a person in the game is blasted by a shotgun during game play, the wound on that person is that of a bullet wound, and not a buckshot wound. A bullet wound (what is seen) is one small hole with a little blood around it, and a buckshot wound should be seen as a large splatter of blood on the person's body. See more »


Amos: They're scattered all over the valley and beyond. The weather is coming in real fast.
Bonnie MacFarlane: So what do you suggest, Amos, we leave the herd out there to be scattered by the storm and ourselves left here to die without a livelihood?
Amos: No miss, if the men get caught out in that storm, they're gonna die.
Bonnie MacFarlane: And if we lose the herd, we'll all die, you stupid man.

Western of the highest quality
6 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

I not gonna go to into detail but I will say this is simply the best game ever made.

This beats previous favourites such as Resident Evil 4 and Grand Theft Auto IV.

This is a masterclass in what a game should be.

I insist people go out and bye this.

You won't regret it.

Even if you aren't a fan of the western genre you should get this because it has a brilliant story and breathtaking missions.

Don't let me down.
