Darkwatch: The Dead will Rise!
Not a new game, but definitely something worth checking out when you have the chance. Darkwatch, is a first person shooter that takes place in the Old West...and its a VERY dark version of the era.
Wikipedia describes it as this:
The game follows the exploits of Jericho Cross, an outlaw-turned-vampire, and his employment in the titular organization, an ancient vampire-hunting order known as The Darkwatch. After unwittingly releasing the Darkwatch's greatest enemy, a vampire lord named Lazarus Malkoth, Jericho is conscripted into the Darkwatch as an elite operative.
Jericho, however, is slowly turning into a vampire himself, after being bitten by Lazarus. The game outlines either Jericho's struggle for humanity or his descent into darkness, depending on the player's actions; the player's actions will unlock new powers. Along with the arrival of these powers, one meets many enemies and a discovers a wide variety of weaponry from the Redeemer to the Coyote Steam-Wagon.
Its actually a lot of fun, and at rock bottom prices on Amazon, it's completely worth picking up a used $5 copy for the PS2 or Xbox. Here is a really fun trailer I found on Youtube.
GAH! I LOVE Heavy Old West Revolvers! Sigh.... :LOVE:
