I’m all about run-n-gun shooters that play with intensity, and if you can get one on a budget all the better. In principle Gun Crazy has some pieces of the puzzle, with a pretty cute look, some nice weapons to work with, and quite a bit of crazy that gets going. The problem? When it comes to in-game insanity there can be too much of a “good thing” and Gun Crazy has that in spades. It starts out pretty promising as you get your legs under you but once the fecal matter hits the rotating blades it actually starts getting to be hard to follow, and in general not for a good reason even. Specifically I have an issue with how large the coins are that you collect and how they move around before getting to you. I suppose it’s a cool effect perhaps but they outright obscure the action and that just makes little to no sense since you’re collecting them and how visually has no real bearing on things. On a budget it’s not bad but it makes some odd choices and that holds it back.
