In real life the famous James Gang were reputed to be lousy shots, unable to hit a man six feet from them when all five tried to gun him down. However, Vortex have put the whole thing right with this well made programme where, as Marshall, you can stalk them down the dusty streets of town, firing at figures as they appear in doorways and windows. Your reflexes must be fast as you won't get a second chance from these baddies. Bullets are restricted, so it's important not to shoot innocent people. Despatching a baddie earns you dollars. The graphics are generally good, although the gunsight could have been better. Reasonably interesting and indecently addictive.
