'''''Outlaws''''' is a 1997 [[TheWestern Wild West]] FirstPersonShooter game developed by Creator/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.
* CigarFuseLighting: The player character can chuck dynamite around. Alt-fire lights the fuse, and the animation consists of the PC removing his stogie from his mouth and applying it to the fuse.
* 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.]]
* TheDragon: Chief Two Feathers
* EasterEgg: Numerous, often [[WhatDoYouMeanitwasntmadeondrugs pretty unusual.]] Dinosaurs with human faces, poodles with sunglasses that shoot fire at you, aliens in the toilet just to name a few. There are also a couple of more normal ones, such as the golden statue (which is a shout out to ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''), Max from [[SamAndMaxFreelancePolice Sam and Max]] and hell.
* 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 Creator/ClintEastwood (on whom Marshall Anderson is clearly based on).
* IdiosyncraticDifficultyLevels: Keeping with the above, the difficulty levels are [[TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly "Good", "Bad" and "Ugly"]].
* IShallTauntYou: '''[[MostAnnoyingSound Don't be a fool Marshal!, Yer' outnumbered!]]''' For the Mooks, the bosses are also very vocal.
** "My horse pisses straighter than you shoot."
* 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 an easter egg in 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 Mainly the easter eggs.
