When the evil railroad baron Clayton Boon decided to build a track to Hell, he didn’t reckon on a crazed shaman raising a posse of embittered psychopaths from the dead to stop him. Now they’ll pursue him across the whole Wild West, fighting their way through hordes of bandits, bears, braves and boogeymen just to find Boon and repay their debt with… A FISTFUL OF GUN! Select one of eleven unique playable gunslingers and seek revenge as a lone wolf or with up to eight other bandits in local and online co-op. Master the specialized controls of each character, collect gold from fallen foes to purchase upgrades, and imbibe a bit of liquid courage and unleash a tornado of lead across the dusty plains.

A Fistful of Gun is a tough-as-nails throwback to classic top-down arcade shooters. It's best played with friends, but its finicky control schemes and steep learning curve make it difficult to get into.

Altogether, A Fistful of Gun is a stylish and fast-paced game that's got plenty going for it, yet suffers from some lack of consistency. While the unique spread of characters and controls could be an innovative spin on things, it ends up distracting from the otherwise-solid play and creates needless frustration. Beyond that, though, there's certainly still something here for top-down action fans to eat up, and online play with friends is a frenzy of mostly-fun insanity.

Though A Fistful of Gun has potential, the empty multiplayer servers and repetitive campaign puts a bullet in any momentum it has going.

FarmerGnome's A Fistful of Gun is an arcade, shooter-adventure players can play, leave for a bit and then come back to later and enjoy the game as much as he or she did the very first time.
