I was playing The Gunstringer when a friend of mine came over and brought his son. His son was mesmerized by what was going on and kept asking me what exactly I was playing. I had to stop and ponder that question, as it dawned on me that I couldn't properly tell him, he just had to watch. Gunstringer is definitely the most unique and pleasant game I have played in years. There is literally no game out that even closely resembles what the Gunstringer is. I say 'pleasant' because it is one of those wholesome, fun games that keeps a smile on your face throughout with its amazing presentation.

You take the title role as The Gunstringer, an undead cowboy out for revenge on his old posse that betrayed him. The thing is, you aren't exactly playing a game, but actually performing in a play in front of a live-action crowd. It sounds totally screwy and I understand anyone's qualms as to this concept being pulled off effectively. I am proudly here to say that it all has paid off, this is a thrilling game that completely wraps you into the role of operating an undead-cowboy marionette. You use your left hand as if you were holding the strings for the marionette and hold your right arm out and make a 'invisible-gun' hand shape(you don't have to make the gun shape, but why wouldn't you?). So the left hand controls walking, moving and jumping of the Gunstringer and your right arm is for shooting. You accomplish shooting by aiming at a target and recoiling your hand as if you just fired a real gun. you can even paint up to 6 targets and then pop back your hand for multi-kills. It all works effortlessly and is a joy. It just feels natural for what you are playing and my hat goes off to Twisted Pixel for making such a responsive and working control system.

Make no mistake about it, The Gunstringer is one of the greatest titles on the Kinect. This isn't a game that will have you doing jumping jacks or posing like Madonna, but it will definitely have you rolling on the ground in laughter and sheer enjoyment. If you haven't played this already, you may want to start downloading the free demo to your Xbox 360 now, so it is ready to play by the time you are done reading this review.
In the days of overcharging and under delivering in video games, it is a breath of fresh air to play a game that you just know is worth the money spent. Sometimes I wonder if game developers enjoy their job, especially if they make us suffer through certain misery of their games. Twisted Pixel has no such problem. It is evident from the opening credits that they love their job.
What is The Gunstringer? This is a game about a skeleton cowboy marionette, making his way through the wild west with vengeance on his mind. Remember how Shakespeare said something about the world being a stage? Well, in this game, you are literally on a stage in front of a human audience. Ever since their hilarious use of the green screen in Comic Jumper, Twisted Pixel has found clever ways to jump into their games and blur the line between fourth walls and immersion. The end result is a video game experience unlike any other.

The controls are flawless. Whether you are shooting down dynamite being thrown at you, jumping over canyons, dodging giant balls of Capt'n Crunch, or fist pounding some ugly croc bastard, you will be in total and effortless control. Controls work sitting down or standing up. I'm almost convinced they would even work hanging upside down from my ceiling.
The story is spread across several acts in several stories.

Bless the development team at Twisted Pixel for a brilliant use of the Kinect system and a wholly original story and game that injects the most humor and silliness into The Wild West since Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles. This game is great fun and one of the most enjoyable Kinect experiences we've had to date.

I purchased downloadable versions of "The Gunstringer" and "Fruit Ninja Kinect" for my sons, ages 9 and 7. I had already read several reviews, so I knew going in that the game campaign is relatively short. Some reviewers describe it as a `weekend game' because all of the levels can be completed in less than 4-8 hours. There's replay value here, especially if you swap controls in the two-player mode.

While the campaign is short, it is grueling nonetheless. Controls require you to use your left hand to control the marionette's strings. Your right hand controls the Gunstringer's pistol, wave your hand over targets and recoiling back to your shoulder to fire - as many as six shots at a time. In two-player mode, the second player controls the Gunstringer's other pistol. You might not think all that waving about would get tiring, yet the game offers players the option of pulling up a few chairs if players grow tired standing.

You advance the Gunstringer through 2D and 3D environments, jumping over traps while you sight and shoot targets along the path. Timing some of the jumps is tricky since it requires you to flick your left hand higher in the air as if you were lifting the marionette into the air. That said, the controls are simple, intuitive and (most importantly) responsive.

One caveat is that the "T" rating is for bawdy humor, i.e.
