GUN Showdown


Porting console titles onto the PSP is becoming a growing trend, with developer Neversoft being the latest to send their somewhat unique creation, a wild west-themed third person shooter, to the PSP. With developer Rebellion working on the port, the...

Gun Showdown Review


Welcome everybody to the Wild, Wild West! About two years ago, Activision released a sleeper hit on the console market world in the form of the game Gun. Set in ...

What can I say, Gun Showdown is one of those games that I want to love, but I just can’t bring myself to do it. The game is gorgeous and is a very faithful port of the console versions, but the control limitations of the PSP completely ruined the...

Gun Showdown Sony PSP Review


Great multiplayer games; terrific presentation brings the West to life; Quick Draw rocks

Controls take some getting used to due to the PSP format; main game's too short

GUN Showdown


Last year Activision and NeverSoft delivered a hot Wild West shooter by the name of GUN, and it would have been the easiest thing in the world to just straight-port the game to the PSP to make a quick buck. But that's not what happened, thanks to some...

Nice set of PSP-exclusive modes ; Story has been spiffed up, and the voice acting is still solid

Man, that control scheme just is a wet blanket on the whole affair ; Some FMV and other in-game graphics are a bit rough

If you already own it or didn’t like the game before, this won’t convert you; but aside from an awkward control system, it’s hard not to appreciate the effort that went into making GUN Showdown more than just a straight port. Worth considering for...

Gun: Showdown


I really wanted to give this game higher marks, but I didn't. I might be making a huge complaint out of something that might not even bother you, but I really could not stand Gun: Showdown's controls. Using the buttons as a directional control is awful...

Gun Showdown


Live by the gun and have some fun in this solid port of Activision's Wild West shooter.

Generally fun quest; rewarding side quests; fast and breezy; good graphics

Multiplayer an afterthought; controls a bit wonky; barren world

Gun Showdown


Lately it seems like a lot of companies are devoting time and money to porting their big budget console games to Sony's PlayStation Portable. Games like The Godfather and From Russia With Love are released on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox, and then months...

Gun Showdown could have been a disastrous port of a so-so action game, but it ends up being a surprisingly solid game full of fun missions, crazy firefights and some cool extra goodies.

GUN Showdown Review


If you're just dying to play a western-themed action game on the PSP, then you probably don't even need to read this review - just go buy GUN Showdown, Activision's enhanced port of last year's hit. It's got some good action and plenty of western...

GUN Showdown is a great game that just doesn't quite fit onto the tiny PSP platform. The controls are intensely frustrating to get used to, and while the great story of the original game plus the new modes are a good reason to pick this one up, your...

GUN Showdown Review


As good as previous GUN games, with an added incentive in multiplayer.

In the final analysis, GUN Showdown proves that with a little ingenuity and some hard work you can create something special for a hand-held platform. With all the extra content and the original storyline intact it's tough not to recommend this to...
