An old game that was born in the arcades makes a comeback. No, it’s not Capcom’s Forgotten Worlds nor Konami’s Sunset Riders. At least the latter one has something in common. Yes, it’s about the wild west, but it’s not cartoon-looking. If you were at the arcades in 1991, you may remember Mad Dog McCree. It was easy to recognize because of one important feature: live-action. Digital Illusions and Majesco are bringing the game this time to the Wii. Mad Dog McCree is not the only title; Mad Dog 2: The Lost Gold and The Last Bounty Hunter come with the original version.
Un viejo juego que nació en los “arcade” vuelve. No, no es Forgotten Worlds de Capcom o Sunset Riders de Konami. Por lo menos el último lleva algo en común. Sí, se trata del lejano oeste, pero no es a estilo de dibujos animados. Si estubieron en los “arcade” en 1991, quizás recuerden Mad Dog McCree. Era fácil de reconocer por una característica importante: “live-action” (en vivo; con actores reales). Digital Illusions y Majesco traen este juego esta vez al Wii. Mad Dog McCree no es el único título; Mad Dog 2: The Lost Gold y The Last Bounty Hunter vienen con la version original.

Players use their Wii Remote or Wii Zapper accessory as the ultimate six shooter in this Wild West adventure featuring live actors. Fast reflexes and precision shooting are the keys to survival when outlaws ambush from every angle and nail-biting showdowns are only a bullet away.
