    You were fairly taken with it then?

    Out of interest, did you ever get the feeling you were playing GTA? I had that problem for at least the first 10 hours of Fallout 3 - I just kept feeling as though I was playing Oblivion, and it damaged the immersion quite a lot.

    Tbh honest, the more I play this the more I get the feeling this is more like Bully than GTA in play style and antics you get up to

    Doubly honest?

    I don't know really... I don't mind it being reminiscent, it's just when it's so similar that you keep thinking you're playing the wrong game.

    A bit like when I was playing Grit 2. Oh wait, no, Dirt 2. It's basically GRID with dust.

    I love the Wild West so I've been waiting for a game that gets it right. It's only really like GTA in the amount and variety of quests. Doesn't feel like it at all really

    I didn't think I would be able to get into a Wild West game till I fired up a copy of Gun that was gathering dust only to find that I actually enjoyed the setting, quite a fair bit.
    Got a copy of this due tomorrow
