Third post for gunstringer
WOW this game was even higher than my expectations. The game is quite short seeing as how i beat it in about six hours but if you turn on hardcore mode you will take atleast twenty to thirty hours to beat its realy crazy hard plus you realy do want to play it over and over and over so the fun never stops. Another great part of the game was its graphics I mean twisted pixle realy out did themselves with there in game art. And last but not least the game is for casual gamers on reguler but this game is awsome for hardcore gaming to with its hardcore mode you will be so frustrated having to restart the level every time you die so its great for hardcore and casual alike. All in All your fourty dollars will not be wasted.P.S. Note that there are nopre-owned availeble that means no ones returned this game EPIC!!!!
Buying it to support a good developer
I've always loved what Twisted Pixel has put out. Splosion Man, Comic Jumper, Ms. Splosion Man. The only one I haven't played is The Maw which I plan on buying soon. I've played the demo and this game seems like it'll make it worth while to own a Kinect. Besides I also get Fruit Ninja, which may not be the greatest game for Kinect but it's free so I can't argue with that.
watch the trailer on youtube it looks fantastic, it has 2d and 3d parts in the game, it looks like alot of fun!
I hate overusing the word but this is epic!
The game is AWESOME. Controls: very easy. Move one hand to jump and move around. The other aims your gun. Nothing else except the occasional punch or slap. And it works good even in kind of crowded areas. Gameplay: Awesome. Shoot shoot punch shoot! Shoot skelecton guys, a weirdo inflatable tube guy, and other characters (including cows made of beer cans.) It's fun, simple, and at times, funny. Plus you can earn most of the achievements really easily!
I was starting to give up on Kinect because of all these stupid sports games and stuff but this looks like it's going to make Kinect worth keeping. Sure, it's not going to be Call of Duty or Gears of War, but it will be a game to play for fun. If all you want to do is level up in CoD I wouldn't recomend it. But if you're like me, I like all kinds of games, so I'm exited
The have a demo available now on the Xbox live marketplace, and man is this game fun.
A fun puppet wielding western adventure!
I love the Kinect! Except this game separates it's self from the rest. It has more of an unrealistic element, meaning it's really awesome that you use your body to control a puppet with a revolver. It's more creative than the other games. I'm looking forward to buying this game.
First shooter for kinect EPIC!!!!!
Wow! When i first got kinect for my xbox i was very skeptical that it would be as lame as ps2's eye was but all that changed as soon as i played it the motion controls where epic but the i worried that i had wasted my money because of the game limitations and thats when i heard about the GUNSTRINGER a 3rd man shooter created only for kinect as soon as i heard about it i ran down to gamestop and pre-ordered it cant wait. And you can quote me on this IT WILL BE EPIC!!! P.S. Does this mean xbox just got another xbox only game Sweet! Halo, Gears of War, The Gunstringer
Great Motion Control REAL Game
A friend got this with his Kinect Bundle some time ago, we tried it recently and put a good few hours on it having a great time. The puppet character and script are quite humorous and the animation style fits the theme well. This on rail type gameplay works VERY well with the motion sensing Kinect, and where hiccups do occur they are generally overshadowed. The gameplay overall can teach its remote control counterparts a thing or two, but there are still points that feel slow or just not connected. The difficulty scales well and there are big differences in the difficulty options themselves. You will also find there are alot of easter egg style unlockables and achievements to be found. Overall, when looking for a game to be played on the Kinect that is an alternative to the more traditional stuff, this one would be a well executed choice.
Twisted Pixel Delivers AA Kinect Title
What originally began as an Xbox Live Arcade Kinect title becomes the best argument so far for Kinect in The Gunstringer. This highly affordable title combines intuitive, easy Kinect movement with Twisted Pixel's (the developer of The Maw, Comic Jumper, and 'Splosion Man) hilarious and quality gameplay and storytelling for the best Kinect title to date.
Gameplay consists of controlling the puppet with your left hand (moving it left to right weaves the character, jerking your hand up makes it jump) while your right hand traces, or locks on to your targets, and fires with an quick upward flip of the hand. Imagine making a gun with your hand, fingers extended, then making a pow gesture, and you have it. Gameplay is an on-rails shooter, with jumping segments, falling, and horse chases.
The Gunstringer features day one free dlc, a code for Kinect Fruit Ninja (another excellent Kinect title), and dozens of unlockeables including gamer pics and avatar awards (and I believe a premium theme, but not certain)
While the Gunstringer can be played sitting down with zero difficulties (a plus for Kinect) I found that my arms grew relatively tired from holding them both outward after about four levels, so take the game in smaller increments at the beginning. To offset the tiredness, the game does feature at least four different difficulties, so everyone in the family can play with ease.
An excellent Xbox Kinect game.
