Very enjoyable story that is similar in style to Bastion

Summary: The Good: Fantastic narrative that is fun and unique, tight gun play, great graphics, fun leveling system, varied environments, duels are fun The Bad: May be too simple for some, can be a tad short, enemies repeat often Call of Juarez has been a very rocky Wild West series. The first game was terrible, the second game was great, the third game was horrible, and the fourth game is great. Will the fifth game be horrible? Who knows.
Summary: I enjoyed this a lot for the reasons mentioned above. The unreliable narrator, Silas Greaves, who keeps changing his story mid-stream, is especially fun. There were a couple of instances where the difficulty (on Normal or whatever the game actually calls it) seemed a bit over the top, but other than that I have no complaints. It activates on Steam as well (I believe it's a requirement) so if that's a problem for you, now you know.
Now that I finished the game, it is good, but great and not bad.

Summary: This game is way to scripted, and the show downs are silly, but I am just glad that this western game left the LA gangland and went back to being a western game. The last game was terrible. However, this game is fun, but I could not wait to finish it, and the ending is surprisingly good. It is worth $15 for sure. If you can get it for $10, even better.
Summary: Do you like Westerns? Do you like corridor shooters? If you answered yes to both, buy this game. It really is as simple as that. The first and second Juarez games were both a lot of fun for fans of the above. Gunslinger is no different, it just comes at a much reduced price at the cost of cutscenes, padding and perhaps some polish. At the end of the day though we play video games for the core gameplay, and Gunslinger provides.
Fun, though simple, shoot-em-up with Old West folklore bonuses

Summary: Call of Juarez: Gunslingers has little, if anything, to do with the previous installments, but in my opinion that's not necessarily a bad thing. The game isn't terribly fancy in its approach: its a linear story shoot-em-up. There's no sandbox mode, a rudimentary level up system and the levels are pretty much the same: clear a map of baddies, take out a boss, and then have a one-on-one gun duel with a secondary boss.
