Far from being diminished by that, however, Gunslinger impresses with just how well it spent its pennies. And, more impressively still, it makes the idea of another Call of Juarez game at some time in the future surprisingly appealing.

PCCall of Juarez: Gunslinger is a first-person shooter developed by Techland, released for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. I took a look at the PC version of the game, and must say, Techland is doing things right. To begin, if you couldn't tell based on the...

CommentCall of Juarez isn’t a series that evokes a sense of quality for most nowadays. Despite an excellent second entry with Bound in Blood, the last title to bear the series name was called The Cartel, and is something best forgotten. So maybe...

A more self aware take on the wild west genre, Call of Juarez strips down the shooter formula to a deceptively simple score attack that casts off the shackles of the previous games.

In 2011, the folks over at Techland inexplicably decided to unhinge their most successful franchise, Call of Juarez, by uprooting the series from its classical western setting and clumsily dropping it into modern-day Los Angeles. But Call of Juarez:...

Selten ist mir ein Charakter in so kurzer Zeit so ans Herz gewachsen. Egal, wie sehr sich der alte Revolverheld auch in Widersprüche verstrickt, er findet immer wieder einen Ausweg, ohne auch nur einen Hauch seines Charmes einzubüßen. Dass Silas zudem all die legendären Figuren des wilden Westens in seine Lebensgeschichte...

There’s no denying that Gunslinger chucks plenty at you for your money. Story mode has a ‘new game plus’ (where you retain your skills) and an unlockable ‘True West’ difficulty, while Arcade and Duel Challenge offer a hefty slice of score-attack action.

La vera ciliegina sulla torta che fa aumentare la taglia (e il voto) sulla testa di questo sparatutto è però il prezzo: a 49 euro avrei avuto comunque qualche riserva a consigliarvelo, ma lasciarselo scappare a soli quattordici euro e novanta, sarebbe come rinunciare a rapinare una diligenza trainata da una coppia di cavalli bolsi.

In una decina abbondante di ore spese sul codice recensibile per PlayStation 3, passatoci gentilmente da Ubisoft, ho completato la modalità Storia e collezionato quasi tutte le cosiddette Pepite della Verità (che forniscono informazioni storiche e contestuali extra), oltre a 8 Trofei sui 17 disponibili in totale. Altro che Wyatt Earp!

You'll also get to engage in a series of duels. Speaking of which: no-one seems to have quite figured out how to do these correctly, but Gunslinger's combo of using the sticks to position the draw hand and focus your target – as well as waiting for the right time to shoot – is pretty good. Much like the game as a whole then.

By GamesRadar on 70

But where Gunslinger falters with the legends of the West, it succeeds in creating a score-based shooter with an interesting, constantly morphing environment and charming narration. If you're looking for a Wild West story that can stand on the shoulders of the legends it houses, Gunslinger may be a let down.

International Review By Looki.de on 81

von Lars Hilbig Gunslinger macht da weiter, wo der Vorgänger aufgehört habt. Es ist stumpf, blutig und eigentlich gar nicht sonderlich innovativ, gefällt aber durch seine Eingängigkeit und die irgendwie andere Erzählweise. Zwar müsst ihr hier auf...

Man musste mit Blick auf den Totalausfall von „The Cartel“ wirklich Angst vor Techlands nächster „Call of Juarez“-Ausgabe haben. Diese Angst ist glücklicherweise unbegründet, denn auch wenn „Gunslinger“ längst nicht das Niveau der ersten beiden Teile...

„Call of Juarez“, das war lange Zeit das Synonym für anspruchsvolle Western-Action im Videospielformat. Doch dann kam der dritte Teil – und alles änderte sich. Nun lässt Ubisoft die Reihe im Rahmen eines Arcade-Shooters neu auflegen. Wir haben den Titel...
