you to take command. Now, a mysterious presence has tinkered with the DNA of
these Xenomes, making them bigger and stronger than before, and the scourge is
spreading once again. As leader of the Gunman, the only law in this area of the
galaxy, you must set things right. Find the source of this hostile invasion,
and clear these alien scum from the rim or the galaxy!

Eurogamer by Keith "DNM" Ellis
"The enemies are all superbly animated, with the aliens
having a flesh-like quality that at times is quite grotesque to look at. Rogue
soldiers look fabulous in their assorted cowboy style garments, and really give
the game a kind of strange Wild West feel. The ability for the Half-Life engine
to handle large ships and monsters is in evidence again, and you will be
astonished at some of the examples of this within the game."
"...Gunman Chronicles has a cracking storyline running
throughout with its fair share of twists and turns. All of this is set upon
some truly stunning landscapes and against some pretty fearsome foes. Though
the AI has its flaws and a couple of the enemies are unimaginative to say the
least, the game still shines through."
