Gunfighter: The Legend of Jesse James. Rebellion (2001) PlayStation

I am going to do a top Light gun Games list soon, and to do that I want to get a few games out of the way. So apologies to the many people who don’t like On-Rails shooters as much as me.


I actually sought this game out… I got the sequel Gunfighter II: Revenge of Jesse James in the big ass bundle of games I got Vampire Night in, and because I am such an idiot I didn’t play Gunfighter 2, instead I rushed out (went online), and bought the first game in the series.

So everything I went through is in fact, my fault. Continue reading

Time Crisis II. Namco (2001) PlayStation 2


I love me some Light Gun Games, and today is the 2 year anniversary of our most consistently popular article “Light Gun Games, why you need an old TV” as well as the first Time Crisis and it’s sequel Time Crisis: Project Titan.

So going into a game I have never heard of, never saw in the arcades, and only a simple love of Light Gun Games to motivate my venture into, what is apparently France in 2006, I dived headlong into Vampire Night. Continue reading

Confidential Mission, Sega Hitmaker (2001) Dreamcast

Confidential Mission PAL DC-front

The Dreamcast had woeful Light Gun support, and as far as I can tell, only 2 games were released in PAL regions with full gun support.

So, of a small pool, which is the best light gun game on the Dreamcast. House of the Dead 2 or Confidential Mission. Continue reading

Final Fantasy X, Square (2001) PlayStation 2


Final Fantasy X is one of the Final Fantasies that people tend to say is “the best”, everybody has a preference (my current is still FFVI), Reddit seems to favour XII, but X is one of the ones that is usually in the running. FFX also currently has a metacritic score of 92.

So apologies for the longer than usual post. Continue reading
