PS2: Red Dead Revolver

Rockstar Games is busy these days. Their current game, Red Dead Revolver is described as:

Loaded with fantastic graphics and gameplay, and inspired by the Spaghetti Western movies of the 1960s and 1970s, Red Dead Revolver is both brutal and humorous. On the Frontier where the law has little claim, you will shoot your way through a land filled with ruthless crooks, corrupt officials, and heartless killers. You are Red the gunslinger, orphaned as a child and then raised by the wise Indian Master. One day, in a dream, your killers are revealed to you, and your destiny is set: the Wild West will run with blood and the fire of your vengeance.

Yes yes.. thats all and good. What is the game really? Its a bit of an awkward shooter, with a few neat twists, that offers something visually imaginitive and frustrating, but in the end the game falls short of long term use.
