"The Gunstringer marked two first for the game developers at Twisted Pixel. Their very first Kinect game and their very first full retail release. Originally slated to the be the developer’s fifth Xbox Live Arcade title, The Gunstringer got the bump to a full retail instead, reminding some gamers of the same change in release that happened to another Kinect title, Joy Ride. As is often the case when any title originally meant for digital release winds up getting the full retail treatment, the game must not only provide a quality product but also “prove” that it deserved said treatment. In many ways Gunstringer does the job, in some others, not so much. In fitting with the Wild West theme of the game, it may be best to break it down into the good, the bad, and the ugly."
