Vintage Light Gun Game Mad Dog McCree Targeting Wii?

By Spencer . March 31, 2009 . 10:55am

Back in the ’90s, when full motion video was all the rage, American Laser Games made a shooter set in the Wild West called Mad Dog McCree. This game is not a on rails light gun game. Mad Dog McCree is more like live action Duck Hunt. Players shot actors bandits and watched them roll of rooftops. A few years ago Mad Dog McCree and other Laserdisc games were adapted for DVD players.


According to Gamefly, Mad Dog McCree is also coming to the Wii. Really? Mad Dog McCree? Aiming with the Wii remote would be an improvement over a DVD remote, but Majesco or whatever other publisher that picked up Mad Dog McCree could have dug up something better. The only hook Mad Dog McCree  has is nostalgia. A game that looks like this video just won’t cut it these days.

    But, this game is crazy!
