“Western 1849 Reloaded” ~ Arcade Cowboy Review


Western 1849 Reloaded

Well howdy there Buck-a-roo’s! Welcome to my short review for Western 1849 Reloaded. What we’ve got here is a action-packed wild western indie arcade shooter.

The game recently launched on Steam February 10th for $4.49, and is available on Steam. So far the Steam user reviews are only Positive. Lets go over a few of the finer points and see if we agree.

The game has a very nice look and feel. The comic book styled storytelling is a nice touch. The way its animated looks very cool. It has a retro arcade shooting gallery feel, and the western music is spot on.

I played the game with a wired Xbox 360 controller. The controls felt very solid and responsive. Aiming takes a bit to adjust to, and angles can be tough to work out. The default button layout is nice is easy to use.

After each wave your able to choose cards that allow you to create different builds. Every play-through you can create different builds that can greatly change your strategy. Creating different strong builds is a lot of fun and great for replay value. The game also offers many upgrade and equipment options.

Its a pretty short game and can be beat pretty fast. There are loads of enemies popping up everywhere. I’m not the best at arcade shooters when using a controller. I would really love this game if it was ported to an arcade cabinet with a revolver.

Overall I think this is a great game. I disagree with the Positive Steam user review rating, and I’m going with Very Positive for my personal rating.

The game is short, but offers a lot of replay value if your into it. The mechanics provide a lot of customization options, which is usually a good thing.

If your a fan of Western’s then I’m gonna recommend you check this indie arcade-style shooter out. For the low price I think this game is a great buy.
