In ”Revolver”, you play Red, a gunslinger seeking his family’s killers in an Old West setting straight out of ”A Fistful of Dollars.” The action is engaging (and short – you can finish the game in one night) and includes a special slo-mo shooting move – more ”Matrix” than ”High Noon” – that has become a Rockstar staple. But the game misses its mark: Instead of the gritty, scrub-brush humor of a Sergio Leone pic, ”Revolver” feels like a rootin’-tootin’ Disneyland ride. Take away the gore, the whores, and the foe who pulls a machine gun from the coffin strapped to his back, and Red wouldn’t last an hour in Dodge.
