This wild west adventure is the 3rd installment in the series and it's not aiming high but it's surely aiming at the right target. the story of the game is told by an old fella who walks into a saloon in exchange for free drinks ,a way of story telling that is used by many games and movies, the cool thing about it is that when your playing through the game and he doesn't remember a specific detail he might change some minor stuff in the game during gameplay , or go back and change how something went down , and you may have to play through the same sequence more than once until Sylas remembers what exactly happened. the gameplay is awesome , the controls feel responsive , the guns are varied and what you'd expect by these old pieces, they have a great feedback , head hunting is fun and the blood splatters all around from your victims in a nice gory fashion, you have the basic arsenal of shotguns dual wielding pistols and rifles to support all gameplay styles, ad you have Dynamite and gatling guns at your disposal as well . enemy AI is a bit off as they just stand there and shoot back at you like live shooting range targets, and you also have a "concentratoin" ability were when you've killed some people you fill a meter , and then activate the ability to slow time and see every target in red and evade bullets mid air. there's an upgrade system with thrree tree skills that you can move up when collecting points by making holes in your enemies . almost every chapter ends up with a good-old wild west face off that requires patience and quick reflexes. the whole campaign takes like 6 hours tops , so if you're looking for a longer game you're not gonna be pleased , but it's a decent west game with cool gunplay which we don't get nowadays .
Great game for amazing price! live the legend!lynxil | May 7, 2014 | See all lynxil's reviews »
I loved the first Call of Juarez games, I remember the day the first game came out, I just sat and played it for hours until I finished it, It was amazing! I just loved the western feel, and I also loved the second one :) but... after the cartel... I was afraid they lost it, until I saw this game! and I knew they're back!
Story The story is about this old bounty hunter named Silas Greaves, it all begins when Silas enters a Saloon and starts telling his story... Silas's story is how he met\dueled\killed real outlaws from the Wild West, outlaws like Billy The Kid, Jesse James and more... all in the sake of revenge...
Graphics I loved the graphics, it's not BF4 or Metro, it's more like Borderlands 2, they tried to make it like a cartoon, since the whole game is being told by Silas, The cut scenes are like comic book pages, anyways, the game got really sweet graphics, for me, it worked!
Gameplay Gunslinger is a FPS with touches of RPG, set in the Wild West, so you know what you'll get... and they deliver it! The game is packed with gun fights, where you run in the old wild west towns, deserts, moving trains, mountains, mines and more, the RPG part is that you have 3 trees that you can choose from, Desperado, Trapper and Ranger, The Desperado class focuses on two revolvers, Ranger uses his Lever-Action rifle and the trapper uses Shotgun and dynamites, each level you get a point you can spend to each class, after 6 skill points invested in each class you get a legendary weapon, which is just a better revolver\shotgun\rifle each chapter you face a boss which is an historical figure as i said above, for instance, in the first mission you face off Pat Garret, when you face those bosses, you enter a duel, which is pretty cool too, they've made it really nice! they also have a bullet-time effect, where you gain concentration after killing your enemies just like the old Call Of Juarez games. Ok, so I'll just summarize this, the gameplay is just great! i mean, the shootouts are great, it's full of action, and if you love the wild west like i do, this is the game for you!
Conclusion I hope they'll make more like this! The game is just amazing, well made, bug-free, full of action and fun, they deliver the atmosphere of the wild west, from the narration to the scenery and to the guns and foes. the game is pretty short actually, about 10 chapters, and it took me about 7 hours to finish it, but hey, it's 15$ so for that price is a steal imo, there is also an arcade mode that you can play which has 10 levels, the arcade mode is another game that you need to make combos to reach high score and compete with friends. So, after they made the Cartel game and failed big time, they redeemed them self with this great game imo, I can't wait for them to make more games like this! and if you didn't play this one yet, but it now! and play it now!

Arcadey Action at its finestvipc | Jan. 20, 2014 | See all vipc's reviews »
What Call of Juarez Gunslinger inspires in me is the competitiveness of the old school arcade shooters. Gunslinger offers three modes; story mode and arcade mode and duel mode. Duel mode is mostly forgettable with a minigame style showdown.
It is the arcade mode and story mode that is the standout of the game. For me, Arcade mode alone makes this game worth it. The game is semi-fast paced point-based first person shooter. In arcade mode, shooting enemies yields points. Shooting enemies in the head, yields more points. Shooting enemies in succession yields multipliers, which yields even more points. Points galore! Yes, the arcade mode is about getting the highest score possible and this really makes the game competitive especially for those perfectionists and competitive gamers.
The story mode is an added benefit. The story itself is surprisingly good, offering a unique storytelling style. Without spoiling it, it will definitely keep you entertained and even a few chuckles along the way.
If I had a minor complaint, it would be that the arcade mode stages are all based on the stages from the Story mode. It would've been nice to have a larger variety of stages not already seen from the story mode. But this is a minor complaint, and doesn't detract from the fact that this game is such a solid shooter.
The game's gimmick is also a bullet time style power that slows everyone down. Nothing innovative in this aspect, but the gunplay makes this game highly satisfying to play. For the low price point, you will certainly get your money's worth for it.
A very pleasant supriseGeorgeStorm | Jan. 20, 2014 | See all GeorgeStorm's reviews »
I was slightly worried after watching a quick video of some gameplay, and knowing that it wasn't based on the characters I liked from the first two games, but I picked it up at the same time as Bound in Blood regardless, and I'm very happy I did!
First off the graphics/art style is fantastic in my opinion, almost looking cell shaded at times it has nice vibrant colours with a decent number of locations (considering it's a western and so is somewhat limited), the voice acting throughout is pretty decent, with the main narrator being the 'star' of the show through one of the game's 'funnest' mechanics.
The narrator is Sylus Greaves, a renowned bounty hunter retelling his various exploits to a group in a bar, and as he's telling the stories from memory, every now and again he would forget something, or double back on himself, and so the level changes as he does so, with cowboys being replaced with Indians, and sudden exits appearing from what looked like a dead end. It's a fun mechanic allowing the writers to play around with scenarios in ways they might not be able to in a western whilst trying to keep it relatively realistic, and doesn't feel cheap.
If you liked the previous games I'd highly recommend this one, the duel system has had a bit of an update, making them slightly more challenging (I personally struggle with them now), and the updated weapon/skill system expands on the previous iterations meaning this is well worth your time and money :)
Incredible game, especially for that price!Fooughhy | Jan. 4, 2014 | See all Fooughhy's reviews »
One of the best narrations of a game I have experienced, and the way the gameplay changes according to that narration is something I have never seen before.
The gunplay feels very satisfying here too, which is quite important in a game like this. I would have wanted the talent-tree to either be more meaningful and more diverse or just get rid of it all together. And I do believe it might be a bit too linear but since it's so cheap and they use the "narration changes the scenery" stuff, they kind of make you not think about it being too linear, which is quite cool.
The graphics is absolutely stunning if you account for the price (it might not be bf3/4 quality) and overall a really great game.
