    This game is pure arcade shooter FUN. No pretentious story criticizing a political ideology just a throwback to PS2 era shooters that weren't afraid to be a fun VIDEO GAME. Lots of content here, more than some $60 games, for $15 and runs very well on PS3. The story was good cheesy fun and the setting of the Wild West is not played out or grim like modern combat games. This is a linear game and not a open world shooter. No multiplayer but I am OK with that. Controls are perfect and satisfying. Hard to spend a better $15 on video games these days. Expand

    This game is such a surprise! And a damn good one The graphics are nice, the story with this old and funny bounty hunter losing his mind talking about his past is just hilarious, and the arcade experience gives to Gunslinger a pretty original taste. I can't wait for the next one! The worthy heir of Django Unchained in video games, my two cents!

    Gunslinger is a pure shooter experience that should be played by any fan of the FPS genre. It's humor makes the ride all the more enjoyable with the narration throughout the game being akin to the also wonderful game, Bastion. If you want a short but thrilling romp though the old west that requires a quick trigger finger and not much else, be sure to download this gem.

    Considering it is only £10, this succeeds in being even better than the previous ones in the series. To myself, this appeared slightly like Red Dead Redemption, and considering the advertising of how amazing that is, I cannot wonder but deem this a cheap unsung hero in the FPS genre.
    The storyline is fairly basic, however the humour involved is quite amusing. It is set in the Wild West
    with duels being an inevitability as you progress through the game. Expand

  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]
