8/10
Dan Stapleton (IGN)

Weird West’s five dark-fantasy adventures contain a wagonload of bizarre encounters, twists, and reveals, and its stealth and chaotic combat are challenging but come with the built-in safety nets of unlimited slow-motion and an old-school quickload system.

Look past the murky aesthetic and clunky combat: this is an exciting fusion of immersive sim and CRPG.

Despite some of the same minds behind Dishonored being involved, this top-down immersive doesn’t live up to its soaring ambitions and often struggles to entertain.
