''Outlaws'' is a 1997 [[TheWestern Wild West]] FirstPersonShooter game developed by LucasArts.

It follows the journey for revenge of the retired Marshal James Anderson, who after returning home from a shopping trip to the town finds his wife murdered, his daughter kidnapped and his house burned to the ground by the henchmen of an evil railroad baron called Bob Graham.
----
!!Tropes:

* BadAssLongCoat: Anderson.
* BaitAndSwitchGunshot: After the final battle, [[spoiler:Anderson is held at gunpoint by Graham, whom he now realizes killed his father. The sound of a gunshot is heard, but it was Sarah, who'd been placed in the same position as Anderson as a child and had grabbed Anderson's gun.]]
* {{Bandito}}: "Spittin'" Jack Sánchez.
* BigBad: "Gentleman" Bob Graham
* BonusLevelOfHell: In Ugly difficulty there is an additional cavern section on Level 6.
* CowboyCop: Anderson was fired from being marshall for gunning down a suspect. It's worth noting that Anderson harbors no resentment for being fired. He fully realises that an officer of the law has to follow the law, and says so when another character claims his dismissal was unfair. [[CaptainObvious Also, uh, he's literally a cowboy.]]
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: It has one of the best western music samples.
** Especially [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnG5X7iU4B0 The Last Gunfight]].
* TheDragon: Chief Two Feathers
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Bob Graham disapproves of "Bloody" Mary Nash's idea of killing Sarah.
* EyeScream: "Bloodeye" Tim got his alias since he lost his eye in a gunfight and so he now has the habit to shoot people in their eyes.
* TheGunSlinger: The main character.
* {{Homage}}: The Game is most obviously one to SpaghettiWestern, especially those starring ClintEastwood (on whom Marshall Anderson is clearly based on).
* IShallTauntYou: '''[[MostAnnoyingSound Don't be a fool Marshal!, Yer' outnumbered!]]''' For the Mooks, the bosses are also very vocal.
* MadDoctor: Matt "Dr. Death" Jackson.
* {{Outlaw}}: [[CaptainObvious Well, duh.]]
* RecycledInSpace: It's ''[[VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga Dark Forces]]'' in the WildWest which itself was ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}''! [-IN Star Wars.-]
* RetiredBadass: The protagonist, James Anderson.
* RoaringRampageOfRescue combined with RoaringRampageOfRevenge
* SawedOffShotgun
* ShoutOut: The Difficulty Levels are named: [[Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly Good, Bad and Ugly]]
** On level 2 (the town) there is a business called [[VideoGame/MonkeyIsland Stan's Used Coffins]].
** There is one historical mission that pays a {{Homage}} to the opening sequence of ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''.
** The musical piece called "The Last Gunfight" is a huge one to Ecstasy of Gold from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly(which itself it a prelude to the famous final gunfight from the film).
* StuffedInTheFridge: The marshal's wife, Anna.
* TakingTheKids: In addition of killing his wife, Bob Graham also kidnaps Anderson's daughter.
* TooDumbToLive:
-->'''"Slim" Sam Fulton:'''...Damn it... I told that fool Doctor stealing your kid weren't gonna be good for everyone's... health... uhhhh *dies*
-->'''Anderson:''' It's a shame he didn't listen.
** Dr. Death really shouldn't have brought up the topic of the Marshall's murdered wife the way he did, hanging upside down from a rope by his ankle above a mineshaft...
** In retrospect, the best way of dealing with a former lawman who got fired because he "killed a few men before a jury gave him permission to" was probably not "Burn down the property, kill the wife and kidnap the child". Bob Graham lampshades this to the particular henchman responsible roughly halfway through the game.
* TrainTopBattle: It wouldn't be a WildWest game without it.
* TheWestern
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: There's a secret area that features a stegosaurus that makes chicken sounds when shot, a velociraptor with a person's head, a rabid squirrel and a dog with sunglasses, among other things.
