Have you played Wii Play target shoot? Then you’ve played most of Wild West Guns. To Gameloft’s credit, they squeeze more fun out of similar lightgun challenges – combo chaining for massive scores is addictive stuff and interactive backgrounds allow for experimentation. The cowboy visuals are nicely handled, though how the same female hostage ends up in the middle of every bandit shootout is beyond us. Here’s hoping she’s not your partner in the decent two-player mode. Not dissimilar to Point Blank and, likewise, better in small blasts.
