Must Download for February
The must download for the month is "The Gunstringer." When I first heard of this game I thought this game was going to fail. The game was originally released on disc. During the Holidays Microsoft made the game all digital and quit selling the physical discs. This game came with the Kinect Holiday Bundle with "Fruit Ninja."
This game is a 3rd person shooter. The game also has a 2 player option as well. The game has difficulty levels from normal to hardcore.
The mechanics of the game are simple. The game is a western play with puppets. The player controls the protagonist known as The Gunstringer. The Gunstringer is a sheriff, who was betrayed by his posse. The beginning sequence shows him rising from his grave to get revenge on his former posse. The game uses the Kinect for the controls. The left hand controls the movements of The Gunstringer (including jumping). The right hand is used as the gun. The gun has a target that is controlled by the right hand. The player can target up to six things and then can the arm up representing the act of reloading. This also enables the player to shoot the gun. The controls are very responsive and work well for the game.
The best way to get the game right now is buying a download code from eBay for like 15 dollars and it includes "Fruit ninja" as well. The game is great if you like westerns combined with humor. If you are looking for a great Kinect game than go no further and download it and see why this is the Must Download.
