The Gunstringer


Do you have Kinect for Xbox 360? Are you wondering what to do with it? Have only one or two games that actually seem worthwhile for the peripheral? The Gunstringer is here to help.Players take on the role of … the hand. That hand controls an undead...

Fun & Funny ; On screen co-op ; Great use of the Kinect ; Fruit Ninja Kinect

Short ; At times the controls just don't quite work

While it isn’t perfect, The Gunstringer is a great example of what the Kinect can do. This is a very worthwhile purchase, but you might want to see if you can find it a little cheaper than the asking price.

Fantastic charm and sense of humor ; Variety keeps the game fresh ; Free DLC adds completely new content and game type

Controls can be spotty

The Gunstringer Review


With the initial introduction of the Kinect hardware, there was some speculation on how well it would perform over time. Now that developers have had a chance to learn how the software works with the camera the games are starting to become more well...

Overall The Gunstringer is one of the best Kinect titles that I have played that takes full advantage of the technology and allows players to feel great about playing the game. With some minor issues with the control sensitivity or accuracy, it doesn’t...

The Gunstringer Review


Twisted Pixel Games has really nailed down the art of making unique, fun and, in some cases, completely ludicrous downloadable games, between the enjoyable The Maw, the hardcore shoot-em-up Comic Jumper and the two Splosion Man games, most notably the...

The animation is outstanding, as your cowboy character really moves around like a puppet would, complete with the strings that are holding him in plain sight. (For good measure, Twisted Pixel also includes footage from an audience that’s watching this...

The Gunstringer - Xbox 360 review at Thunderbolt Games


Video games and live actors have always had an uneasy coexistence. From its inception there have been countless games with acting so terrible, writing so atrocious that even the worst of the SyFy monster movies would scoff at them. There have been a...

Review: The Gunstringer


Twisted Pixel makes some of the most unique games out there. Primarily known for their enjoyable downloadable titles like The Maw and 'Splosion Man, they always seem to be coming up with unique concepts and gameplay ideas. They are also adept at...

The Gunstringer


There has been an extreme lack of core Kinect titles. Luckily, Twisted Pixel, the minds behind ‘Splosion Man, The Maw, and Comic Jumper, have

The Gunstringer is one of the best Kinect titles for the core gamer. Forty bucks may seem like a lot for a game with a five hour play through, but the unlockables and achievements will add some replay value. There is also a free DLC available, with...

The Gunstringer Review


Ever since Kinect was released, there's one most obvious of uses that we've been secretly waiting for. Pretending to shoot with your finger is a basic human instinct, and with Kinect's capabilities, the combination of finger-banging and motion capture...

When the Gunstringer receives dual pistols, and both your fingers become weapons.

The Gunstringer


Those guys and gals at Twisted Pixel are some smart cookies. That's immediately apparent from the moment you start playing The Gunstringer, which like the rest of the developer's output to date is utterly unique and entertaining. A bizarre hybrid of...

Another triumph for Twisted Pixel, The Gunstringer is not just a worthy addition to the stable of games for Kinect, it's quite possibly one of the best games you can buy for the device. A healthy dose of tongue-in-cheek humour and varied gameplay make...

The Gunstringer Review


Check out one of the best reasons to own a Kinect.

The Gunstringer comes swooping in, ready to defend Kinect supporters and justify their purchase. It’s one of the few games I would recommend buying a Kinect for. You’ve never played an on-rail shooter like this. Hell, you’ve never played any video game...
