Evil West Hands-On Preview: Refreshingly Old-School - IGN

The limited time I got to spend with a slice of Flying Wild Hog’s Evil West felt almost like I was time traveling. A linear third-person action game? With hidden collectables? With no side quests? Checkpoints that don’t involve bonfires? Open areas that double as combat arenas to crunch through enemies before moving on to do it again? They don't make them like this anymore, and a game like this really makes me wish they did.

Old-school. Is that the new way of saying not wo** ?

Not wood?
Wood is very old school.

This game looks pretty fun. Looking forward to playing it.

I'm not sure I'm sold on the gameplay tbh. It looks clunky when it comes to using the gun. Everything else looks alright though

Old school my kind of shit !!! At last something worth playing that doesn't try to be every game wrapped in one.

While not on the PS4, if you want a pretty imaginative and downright fun Cowboy game you should check out Call of Juarez: Gunslinger. Not only is it a great arcade FPS in its own right but one that has some Narrative Elements that interact with the Gameplay in a pretty surprising and novel way. Something a few of the AAAAAAAA games should be looking at in order to marry the Narrative with the Gameplay better.

The best part is that you can get it for a few dollars on GOG or STEAM during their sales.

Nice... I just bought Evil West a couple months ago but never opened it. Now I won't have to. And i hear good things about Plague Tale.

crazyCoconuts180d ago

Plagues Tail Req is good. One of my favorite Dual Sense trigger effects on the slingshot.

--Onilink--180d ago

Nobody Saves the World is amazing too, SkillUp did a great review of it

Samonuske180d ago

On the same boat with evil west still have it unopened.

FinalFantasyFanatic179d ago (Edited 179d ago )

I already bought Evil West on PC just recently, I've owned Nobody Saves the World for a long time, I really loved the first Plague Tale game, I was waiting for it to hit $30 on Steam before I bought it.

Considering the games, this is one of the best months we've had in a while.

thorstein179d ago

I have every one of these on my wishlist. This is great!

I loved the first Plague Tale.
