Wild Guns (Super Nintendo)

This is a extremely underrated Western type arcade shooter for the SNES. Gameplay is where this game shines.



This off most SNES gamers will never have even heard of this game, let alone have played it. It was made by the great minds of Natsume and is a instense western type shooter with robots. I was fortunate enough to stumble across it when i was younger and have been blown away ever since.

Wild Guns is all about the gameplay, You choose when you start to either play as a male of female character. And you run around back and forth in the foreground while shooting and destroying evil-doers in the background with crosshairs. Doesn't sound that great but it has to be experienced to understand.

While the music is nothing to shake a stick to it's bland and gets very reptetive and the sound effects are nothing amazing either. Though your character will shout out "Look Out!" when a bullet is coming to close to you from an enemy.

The graphics are very good on the SNES. The enemy spirtes are nice looking (abeit generic) and the bosses are range from cool looking huge robots to evil cowboys.

The story is pretty generic as well, the female's character's (Annie, i think) Family is adbucted and you must save them from a gang of evil cowboys that have lots of robots at their disposal.

Gameplay is where the game shines. It's hard to explain but it's got this magic to the game that's just fun. If you can find a copy (which will be tough) you'll be yeehawing and yippey-kai-aying as you play this game over and over again..seriously...the controls are easy to get down.
