Grand Theft… Horse

Rustler is an open-world, top-down action game paying tribute to the good old GTA style and gameplay, fusing it with a

historically inaccurate

medieval setting. Play as The Guy, whose parents apparently were too lazy to give him a proper name. Experience feudal injustice, inquisition, witch-hunting, and join The Grand Tournament. Meet valiant, yet incredibly stupid knights. Complete a wide variety of twisted missions and quests, or don’t give a damn about the plot and bring mayhem in the villages and cities. Choose to go on foot, or by a stolen horse. Fight with a sword or pick a fancy automatic crossbow. All that, spiced up with an inappropriate Monty Python inspired sense of humor.

Be a bold, bald thug in a medieval sandbox

Rustler’s world is filled with humor, anachronisms, and pop culture references. Ever been towed for parking in a “NO HORSE ZONE”? Wanna do some cage fights in Medieval Martial Arts Arena? Or maybe pimp-a-horse a little? How about joining the Round-Earthers sect?

Wreak havoc in top-down, old-school combat

Use swords, spears, turds, and crossbows. Want to get more efficient? Try holy hand grenades or… horses. Nothing’s more deadly than hooves galloping in your direction. Or drifting a cart.

Screw everyone over to win half the kingdom

As a poor peasant, you really need to get creative in order to win the Grand Tournament™. Form weird alliances, double-cross your foes, and dig up dinosaur skeletons in a light, easy-to-understand, and hard-to-empathize-with story.

Hire bards to aid you musically in battle

A bard can be your sweaty personal radio. Not only will he not leave your side, even in the midst of the bloodiest of conflicts, he will also change the song's dynamic depending on the action on-screen. Moreover, you can express a desire to change the tune by punching him in the face.

A lot of horsin’ around

Shoot cows into the sky, dress up as a guard or even Death himself, burn entire piles of weed, draw fancy shapes with a plowing cart, survive a full-on guard onslaught after killing half the city… And that’s only a few of the many crazy things you can do in Rustler.

  • Probably wait for a decent sale… but certainly worth a look if you enjoyed the original GTA (or the sequel).

  • If Rustler suffers from anything, it’s just that it sometimes doesn’t quite know what it’s trying to be. Most of the time, it seems to be specifically trying to parody GTA, and it plays a just like the early top-down games from said series. The tone is a bit off-beat, though, with all the jokes, pop culture, and poking of fun. It might not be perfectly cohesive, but whether you’re here for the jokes or because you like games where you can be on the wrong side of the law, there is definitely something here for you. So if you aren’t easily offended by the copious amounts of cursing, blood, and violence, you should definitely give Rustler a go. Pull that guard off his horse, ride off, and don’t look back!

  • Rustler finally arrives on PCs and consoles. If you are passionate and remember with joy the very first GTAs and have a heart close to the atmosphere and genius of groups like Monty Python, Rustler is right what it does for you.

  • Rustler isn’t shy about its homage to the classic Grand Theft Auto games, as it puts on its persona as a goofy, medieval Grand Theft Auto imitator with unabashed glee.

  • Sense of humor is personal and what you respond to is none of my business. Rustler might very well be your comedy jam, mixing GTA with wannabe Monty Python and firing the joke cannon at every opportunity in the hopes that the humor will hit with someone. What we can agree on is that mechanics and gameplay are at least as important as the setting and story, and this is where Rustler fails to deliver a consistently fun experience.

  • Rustler is a fun pastime without particular pretensions that succeeds discreetly, and at a low cost (on Steam it is in promotion for only 14 euros), in order to entertain the player with a series of characters and events beyond all logic.

  • Classic GTA gameplay in a medieval setting, coarse humour with countless pop culture references and a horrible save system.

  • If you want to experience a "what if" of an early GTA styled game that is set in Medieval times, Rustler is your only choice. Be warned though, the crude humor and the problematic controls might not be ideal for everyone.

  • With its widespread irreverence and punchy visuals, the work of the Polish studio does not leave you indifferent. Soaked in pop-culture references, the game - which is translated into French - will appeal to any regular in the genre, but it arrives with its bundle of bugs and suffers from a bit too repetitive structure. Fortunately, its original universe and its pace make it possible to mitigate its shortcomings and one would almost come to hope for a more successful sequel. Because as it is, it is better not to be too picky to fully appreciate it.

  • CD-Action

    The “medieval Slavic GTA” (inspired by the early GTA games, mind you, not the 3D ones) is crude but also fun, unpretentious and full of positive energy. Chock-full of jokes, easter eggs and pop culture references, Rustler is never serious. If you enjoy such titles and are willing to accept the game’s intentionally old-fashioned formula, you could consider giving it a chance. [11/2021, p.70]

  • Grand Theft Horse is the best way to describe the game since it is created as a tribute to old GTA games. Unlike the original games, this one is a pure parody set in medieval times, where you play as a small-time thug in a crazy open-world action game, full of pop-culture references. If you can ignore some minor and repetitive bugs, and you want to experience early GTA styled game that is set in the Medieval times, Rustler is worth a shot.

  • Rustler copies ideas and mechanics of Grand Theft Auto 2 and tries desperately to squeeze them into a medieval setting. Neither the story nor the gameplay are exciting. Even the Monty Python-inspired Quests do not make it a good game and the highest of feelings was us smirking about the silly humour.

  • Rustler is a game that does a little of both but doesn’t commit to either idea enough to make an interesting experience. This indecision to commit hampers the game’s enjoyability and leaves players with a confused understanding of what the game wants to be. This compounded by a lack of black representation while directly referencing black culture everywhere, makes this game difficult to recommend.
