Mad Dog McCree review — April 2003, US edition

PC Gamer at

Every Sunday, Tyler publishes a classic PC Gamer review from the '90s or early 2000s, with his context and commentary followed by the full, original text from the archived issue. This week, Mad Dog McCree is reviewed in the April 2003 issue of PC Gamer US. More classic reviews here.

For the past couple months, I've used this column to celebrate great and influential games—The Elder Scrolls: Arena, Unreal Tournament, Rayman—but not this week. This week we travel 11 years into the past, then 13 years further, to gawk at an anomaly: the second lowest review score in the history of PC Gamer, beat out only by Big Brother 1 and Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude.
