Guns 'n' Stories: Preface is a short VR wave shooter that serves a demo and teaser for the longer Guns 'n' Stories: Bulletproof. In this game, you play a bounty hunter in the old west, battling against swarms of vicious outlaws. In addition to the western story, the game also features ongoing dialogue between the bounty hunter, now an old man, and his grandson as they discuss the story.
Rootin' tootin' six-gun shootin'
If you've played other VR wave shooters, there isn't much about the gameplay of Guns 'n' Stories: Preface that will surprise you. It has a few twists, such as the bizarre weapons you can sometimes use and the variety of enemies you'll face, but the basics are pretty familiar. The action is fast-paced and the controls feel fluid and responsive. The story segments, with their rough, impressionistic, painted artwork fit the theme of an old man's memories well.
Short, simple fun
Guns 'n' Stories: Preface isn't truly a game -- it's just a demo for its longer version. It's good, fast-paced fun, though, and the colorful characters are engaging. If you're looking for a wild west gunfighting simulator, you'll be disappointed.
