USA WiiWare Update: Wild West Guns
Posted by Darren Calvert
As predicted Wild West Guns is up for grabs today on WiiWare in North America. If you like Zapper games such as Link's Crossbow Training you could do a lot worse than checking out this game. You don't need a Wii Zapper to play it of course! The action is a little short lived, but it’s great fun with two players. For 1000 Wii points it represents a solid buy for anyone who likes the genre.
Check out our Wild West Guns review for more info on this game.
Here's the press release:
Wild West Guns (Gameloft, 1-2 players, Rated T for Teen - Violence, 1,000 Wii Points): Draw your revolver to see if you’re the fastest gun in the West. Adjust your speed and precision as targets or enemies appear in front of you. Point and shoot to earn more points. You can aim at anything, so be sure to explore the environment for elements that will earn you more shooting points. Identify your enemies among the characters you encounter, but don’t shoot at innocent citizens. Take part in an Old West-style train attack, or challenge your skills in a variety of increasingly difficult shooting challenges in other beautiful, classic and lively Western environments. As you progress through challenges, you’ll earn medals and rewards, making for nonstop, addictive action. Play in a two-player multiplayer mode where you and your partner can combine points, or play against each other to find out who’s the fastest gun in the West.
If you don't fancy shooting some outlaws in the wild wild west then you might want to consider Sonic on the Master System or Splatterhouse 2 on the Genesis instead. As always check out VC Reviews for the most up to date info on the Virtual Console.
