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.
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.
