Get Ready for an Overdose of Fun

Total Overdose: A Gunslinger's Tale in Mexico promises to take players on a wild adventure through the badlands of Mexico. This game focuses on shooting with an innovative twist. Read on to discover if the game delivers the epic adventure and excitement that it promises.

If you are the kind of person who purchases an action game for the chance to shoot people in the face, you will love Total Overdose. Players are represented with this opportunity again, and again and again. While for some people this might seem rather repetitive, it is strangely addictive and is sure to make some people chuckle out loud.

The grand title of Total Overdose: A Gunslinger's Tale in Mexico may well thing that it comes with an epic and intricate storyline. While the storyline to the game does feature plenty of twists and turns, you can forget about the finesse. The story plays out rather like a bad spaghetti Western, which in a weird way is part of its charm. As long as you can ignore the dialogue, which seems to have been written by a six-year-old, the story can actually provide its own splash of colour.

This game is without a doubt a celebration of all things gun and bullets seem to fly at a mile a minute with hardly a pause to take stock of the bodies. In addition to simply shooting the bad guys, players will also have the chance to pull off some wacky moves that seem to defy physics and biology. But no matter, this is not a game rooted in realism and the main highlight is on the instant gratification of shooting people. Yes, you guessed it; in the face. Why the character has such a love for shooting people in the face is never made clear, but it certainly helps to drive the point home.

A lot of elements of the game feel like they have been lifted directly from other popular games such as Max Payne and Grand Theft Auto. However, once again this is not necessarily a bad thing and the creators of the game have managed to capture many of the things that make action games so popular and combine them all together. While the result is a bit disjointed at time, it still makes for very addictive game play.

Players are given a series of missions to complete in addition to the main objective of shooting bad guys in the face. Many of these missions are rather short, which is good for people who have a short attention span. In fact, the entire game can be completed in a few hours, just before many people start to realise exactly how cheesy it is and the appeal wears off. The game controls are very easy to get to grips with and unlike many other action games, playing and completing Total Overdose is rather easy. This makes the game ideal for novice players who are just getting into gaming.

Total Overdose serves up plenty of cheese with the fast paced action, which is sure to make some people cringe. However, this is the defining style of the game and certainly helps to take the edge off the violence. Fans of action games are sure to have a blasting good time.
