Excerpt: Call 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 name, Call of Jaurez is set in the wild west, and you play as the namesake gunslinger and bounty hunter Silas Greaves.
Conclusion: Call of Juarez Gunslinger is Techland at their best and the most fun I have had with a western experience since Red Dead Redemption . It’s kind of a shame to know that their A team was working on this while Dead Island Riptide was thrown together but I’m grateful that Gunslinger exists because it’s a solid and fun first person shooter with some great hooks in it.
Excerpt: It dawned on me while playing Techland’s thoroughly enjoyable shooter Call of Juarez: Gunslinger just how satisfying the traditional Western arsenal is to use. It’s because low-technology guns change how you play. Take the common or garden revolver. There’s a satisfying sense of importance to each click of the mouse when you only have six shots in your gun. You can’t just fire off twenty rounds and slap a new magazine in, instead you have to make every shot count.
Conclusion: At just $15, the MSRP of the game is already fairly low. To get through the nine-level single player campaign, you are looking at 5 to 8 hours depending on your difficulty level. It's definitely a fun, entertaining romp while it lasts, even if the ending to the story is somewhat predictable if you have seen any classic western movie. By the way, keep an eye out for Steam and Amazon sales on Call of Juarez: Gunslinger .
Game Review: Call of Juarez: Gunslinger [PC/XBLA/PSN]
20 June 2013
Excerpt: Everyone remembers Call of Juarez: The Cartel right? Even though it was something you’d want to forget, like a bad dream in the middle of the night. The entire setting was a bit unneeded, seeing as how we have tons of games in the modern setting, and CoJ is supposed to be a western game. On the other hand, CoJ: Bound in Blood was absolutely enthralling with such a beautiful storyline. So people were disappointed when we didn’t get a true successor to it.
Summary: Gunslinger is a solid return to form for Techland, anchoring their colourful arcade take on the Old West in a story told with a great deal of heart and good humour. If only other parts of the game showed such originality.
Pros: Strong, sometimes thoughtful narrative. Clever use of Greaves' narration as a game mechanic. Stunning landscape design. Vibrant, briskly-paced score-attack action. Good-looking cut-scenes.
Cons: Shooter mechanics feel like a bit of a rehash. Level design is repeated too often for comfort.
Summary: Apesar de apresentar alguns contratempos, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger se mostra um FPS extremamente divertido. Abandonando qualquer pretensão de se levar a sério, o jogo assume sua identidade arcade desde o início, deixando claro sua intenção de simplesmente providenciar uma galeria de tiros na qual o único objetivo é acumular mais pontos.
Summary: После провальной , Call of Juarez вернулась, и сделала это очень неплохо. К счастью, ребята из Techland вовремя одумались, и вернули серию к истокам. Вновь Дикий Запад, множество противников, а в руках два верных револьвера. Gunslinger очаровывает своим коротким (к слову, игру можно пройти за один «присест»), но интересно поданным повествованием, необычным подходом к рассказу сюжета, быстрыми и очень динамичными аркадными перестрелками, а также, что немаловажно,...
