"The story keeps things slightly off-balance and constantly throws up interesting moments, while the minute-by-minute gunplay makes murdering your way through that story intensely satisfying." - PCGamer.com
"Call of Juarez: Gunslinger may be the game that cements the franchise's reputation as one of, if not the, least consistent in gaming history." - Polygon.com

This western-themed FPS provides a decent story, quality soundtrack and a rather short campaign. Actual shooting part is reasonably satisfying, but is somewhat hamstrung by its sheer repetitiveness - there are very few weapon types and only a handful of enemy types. This monotony is broken up with a bullet-time mechanic, narrative tricks, scoring system, character skill progression and an emphasis on combos, which is further helped by how good the shooting feels. The campaign itself is short - it took me about 6 hours and I certainly took my time. Considering the campaign's replayability and a couple arcade modes, I'd say the value is good. The game is also well optimized and is a competent PC port, requiring very little tinkering to run properly. That said, the dueling system is unredeemably atrocious - it's floaty, unresponsive, feels unfair and random. Its only saving grace is that duels usually only take a couple of minutes to beat. Also, boss fights are pretty bland - only thing that sets bosses apart from regular enemies is a beefy health pool.
The narrative in this game is by far some of the best that I can remember. It just works and sucks you in even when gameplay gets a little repetitive. The story teller, bounty hunter Silas Greaves, tells recounts of his life and times with run ins of Legendary Old West Legends. Whether these "stories" are true or typical bar chatter exaggerations is up to you to decide. Gameplay is pretty good. My only complaint is I am not a huge fan of the duel mechanics but you learn to live with it.
The best game of call of juarez franchise , its this , his new ways to play are amazing ! , i have played him for 20 hours in a row without stop .
Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is a great game for any fan of Westerns, The main character you begin your journey with is likable and has many tales that you play through, without spoiling anything further i will sum it up by saying the Story mode is tremendously well done and enjoyable from start to finish.
This game is awesome. It is a gem, all together with crappy fps's we have now days. It has a very, very clever way of story telling. In fact, it's the most original way I've ever found in a game! The graphics are top notch, and the art is splendid! The gameplay is great - fun and challenge are there in the right measures (though I played on hard). And the soundtrack - oh the soundtrack... - AWESOME! The voice acting is incredible too, providing even more of the west feeling. This game is innovative, fun, challenging and unlike some people say, it's not that short (obviously it would be better if it was longer, but many other games provides less gameplay time than this one does for less amount of fun). It brings back the desire to play an fps, being as fun as an fps can be. Believe me, there's nothing like it.
