West of Dead pulls you in with its attractive visual design and atmospheric premise. The gunplay is a lot of fun when you get good at it but there are far too many technical issues that get in the way of your experience. When games have permadeath, glitches are going to kill the fun as well as your character.
Overall, the game itself is smooth enough to play but not unique or different enough to keep me engaged compared to other games in the genre. Some things work and some don’t and I felt this one did not work for me and I am usually a huge fan of Westerns.
A furiously stylish roguelike gothic western that blends genres with deft and aplomb, West of Dead is a resoundingly enjoyable offering that makes picking yourself up and dusting yourself off after every death a ravenously compelling proposition.
