Hired Guns review

Electronic Games (1994): "Computer gaming has been criticized as being anti-social since most games are designed for one player, two at most. Psygnosis’ Hired Guns can accommodate up to four, if they can all squeeze together tightly enough to huddle around one keyboard. It’s an interesting concept that stems from the fact that Hired Guns was originally written for the Amiga, a computer with enough input jacks for four.
While it takes four players to get the full benefit of Hired Guns, one will do. But regardless of the number of players, four armed-and-dangerous on-screen characters need controlling. Since it’s usually tough enough keeping one character in any game out of harm’s way, the results here are predictable."
