    I was a big fan of the first two Juarez games and then "Cartel" almost single-handedly destroyed the franchise... but then Gunslinger was released and it more than made up for the disappointment. Gunslinger does a few things differently, namely the visual style and storytelling, and not everything hits the mark (the story is a bit silly and feels a bit congested at times) but itsI was a big fan of the first two Juarez games and then "Cartel" almost single-handedly destroyed the franchise... but then Gunslinger was released and it more than made up for the disappointment.

It's also a decent length too so in terms of bang for buck you really get something that will keep you going for a while. Expand

    Good game but felt like something was missing. Whilst Id like to judge it by itself, but i cant help but compare it to Red Dead Redemption in particular, the storyline. There was nothing compelling about it-only a small part of the latter part of the game is interesting.Its just a shooting game, nothing more-it provides a weak storyline. I do praise the presentation and how he story isGood game but felt like something was missing.

    Call of Juarez is a fun and polished shooter with a budget price.
    The first thing you notice when you start the game is the vibrant cell shaded visual style, It really stands out compared to most first person shooters.

    The first thing you notice when you start the game is the vibrant cell shaded visual style, It really stands out compared to most first person shooters. The game is a throwback too old school run and gun shooters and is built around getting xp by making creative kills. With that you can unlock skills over three different skill trees which gives you a good reason to replay the game in new game plus. The story is forgettable but works well enough as a way to setup the missions. if you are looking for a fun shooter with a budget price that you can play through on a lazy Sunday, look no further.

  1. What you get in the first hour of Call Juarez: Gunslinger, is exactly the same you will get in the next three or four hours of its story mode. So prepare for absolutely no surprises down the line. Still, Techland did a fine job constructing each level, making Gunslinger a fun ride through the Wild West. [June 2013, p.92]

    Gunslinger feels like a by-the-numbers shooter with a narrative gimmick that, put in the right hands, could’ve made for a truly compelling experience. As it stands, it overall feels like a way to pad out the length (it’s already pretty short at about five hours).
  3. By not taking itself seriously and focusing on the exaggerated swagger of old folk legends, Gunslinger manages to be the best game in the series. [August 2013, p74]
