"Call of Juarez: Gunslinger" returns to the wild west after the disastrous previous videogame. If you liked "Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood", you're in luck ..
The first impression that your have is very good and exciting: There is a good staging, the graphics are quite good (though not outstanding) and above all a very good story that gets you immersed in the weft quickly. The management of the main character is very good. In the negative side: extremely linear and straightforward. You won´t find a "Crysis". There is only a way to face the situations, it is a little bit "easy game" and besides it is too short. (± 6.5h)
So if you want to pass a good time, shooting to outlaws without any other complications, this is your game. If your looking for a RPG of a "Crysis"... don´t buy it.
Great game at a fantastic value.Discostink | Nov. 29, 2013 | See all Discostink's reviews »
Call of Juarez: Gunslinger doesn't feel like a 15€ game. The amount of polish and enjoyment you get out of this game is much more than you'd get from quite a few 60€ games that have come out this year, and if you're a fan of westerns, this game is absolutely must-have.
Gunslinger has much more in common with the original Call of Juarez and Bound in Blood than it does with the offspin Call of Juarez: The Cartel, going back to the Wild West, and taking place over a 30-year timespan, covering the most vivid and interesting time in the cowboy era. The narrative structure is quite unique in that the game takes place as told in stories by the main character, Silas Greaves, recounting his history and all of the things he has done. The interesting part comes whenever his stories are called out on inaccuracies or unrealism, after which he'll redact statements or amend them, which actually shape the story in real-time, such as mentioning that he noticed a way to escape in a gunfight, whereafter the new passage will literally open up as if through divine intervention. It's quite charming, in a way.
The gameplay itself feels great, as well. The shooting is snappy and feels very accurate, you're very rarely going to feel like you're missing shots out of random chance, and if you're a good shot, you'll be rewarded with a great increase in experience. The leveling mechanics in Gunslinger consist of having three different skill trees tailored to different playstyles, whether you're an up-close shotgunner, a long-range rifleman, or you just wanna run in and empty two revolvers into a room as fast as possible. There's not a huge variety in weapons, but the weapons that are available are just fine. At times you will also be roped into duels against other gunslingers, which are unlike the regular gameplay, as you have to stare down your opponent, keep your hand as close to your gun as possible, and trust your reflexes to carry you through.
Once you've completed the main game, there is also an arcade mode to play. This mode does away with all story and focuses solely on your ability to shoot fast, shoot precisely and keep your combo going for as long as possible. In order to earn all stars possible you need to be damn good, so if the main game left you wanting a challenge, the arcade mode is there for you.
All in all it's a fantastic game for the money, especially if you're a fan of westerns.
Great narrative and good funThousandforms | Nov. 19, 2013 | See all Thousandforms's reviews »
I've only played 2 hours so far but really enjoying it. The gameplay is intertwined with the storytelling, which 90% of the time is great, occasionally you just want to go all-out, but that's what arcade mode's for really. it looks great and the gun upgrades are pretty cool. I got it for about £6 and its definitely worth that, As its almost a play-through movie-esk idea I could see it being equally interesting t to play through again a few months down the line!
Great Arcade ShooterVlady | Nov. 18, 2013 | See all Vlady's reviews »
Excellent game for a fair price. Though extremely linear and straightforward the game offers great gun-play and and satisfying campaign with top notch voice acting that captures the spirit of the wild west. On top of that you get addictive high paced arcade mode where you need to chain combo kills and rush through levels. There isn't much of variety when it comes to weapons and enemies but guns still feel great and combat is sharp and fluent. It's short but has a decent replay value, unlockable skills and guns, and different difficulty levels . I finished the game 3 times and without getting bored.

I love old the good old Wild West, and I really enjoyed Gun. But I did not expect CoJ: Gunslinger to be this good. The story and the twists on it are interesting, meeting the famous outlaws is refreshing and the gameplay is a fast paced shoot them up. I really dig the visuals, they are great, and the game is really cheap for what it actually offers. So, if you like such games as this one, you should totally grab it.
