Review: Is Close Range For the (PC)?

I don’t want to rattle off the usual game review cliches, but the Close Range series has always been known for frenetic action, witty writing, and lots of references to exploding heads. Close Range for the PC, the 19th game in the series, doesn’t change up this awesome formula, but it has plenty new to appeal to fans of the genre.
