Critic Reviews for Weird West
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.
A bold, atmospheric yet dissatisfying ensemble RPG shooter, full of untapped promise.
Look past the murky aesthetic and clunky combat: this is an exciting fusion of immersive sim and CRPG.
Weird West has the ambition of a much larger game, and has made smart choices to be able to meet it.
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.
Regardless, developer Wolfeye Studios has crafted one hell of a debut release. Weird West subverts expectations, twisting well-trodden cowboy tropes into dark fantasy vignettes brought to life by immersive sandbox elements.
Weird West slings a few effective yarns, but fumbles when it comes to dealing in lead.
A dark-fantasy western RPG with a compelling world and an ambitious narrative, Weird West is undermined by awkward combat and micromanagement. Weird West's rotating multi-character perspective will be an acquired taste, but makes sense as a method of world-building. It's got room to grow, but right now, it's challenging to build momentum in the early game and to persevere through the mid-game.
