Instead I recommend you to play Smokin' Guns. It isn't graphically strong, but it's really fun and entertaining to play, and it even has some in-game graphic filters that make it look cartoony, a bit like Outlaws did.

Ya but look at other games like Mafia. It didnt have the best graphics and isnt that known but it was a decent game and it has a really nice sequal coming out. I think its possible. Just Call of Juarez blew my mind with its graphics and I didnt think it could be beat but then they came out with Bound in blood with what I think has better graphics then some games like GTA 4 which I believe came out around the same time. Video Games will always advance and Red Dead Redemption cant stay on top forever I Believe It can be beat. And with all the latest western games being released I think that It can creat alot of hype especially if there was a first. I think that they could make something really good out of it if they wanted to. And since the original is so hard to find they could make it a bonus and include it with the seconed. And I think that a same cartoony less seriouse kind of game is needed. And for the time it was a great advance in First Person Shooters. The graphics are far better than quakes which I also thought was a great game. Plus Red Dead Redemption isnt out for PC which I thought was a very bad move. There are alot of mad pc gamers over it.

Clearly these claims are going to be exaggerated but nonetheless I think it's probably a pretty sweet game. I've been waiting for a good wild west game pretty much since Outlaws so I'll be picking it up soon.
I wouldnt call it perfect. It is nice but no game is perfect. I thought that many games were perfect then something better came along and I think that somthing needs to be a sequal and of outlaws.

* The fact that it had a strong LucasArts storyline and a few puzzles despite being an FPS.

I was so used to Quake at the time that Outlaws was very refreshing.

Is what lucasarts does best and is somthing that I think only they can pull off. I think that what makes it different than other games was the puzzles. Its not just pointless shooting and killing. And it reminds me of Full Throttle. Although it wasnt a FPS it too was kind of unusual and Its one of my favorites. All the other games are so seriouse. I think there needs to be a more unusual release that everyone can play. Outlaws was a pretty agressive for the time but it doesnt have to be another Gears of War.  72528
