RadarPlays - Rising Zan: The Samurai Gunman

This is the story of the bravest cowboy who ever lived. Or samurai. Or both. Lucas, Henry, and Greg team up to tackle this bizarre PS1 game, which tells the tale of a sword-wielding sheriff and his adventures in the Old West. Expect much slashing of samurai midsections, as well as deep-set confusion over terrible six-shooter controls. But no matter what you think of the gameplay, there's no denying that Rising Zan has one of the best intro cutscenes ever made.
