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: If you are sick and tired of the same WWII first person shooter games then I highly recommend giving this game a try. I decided to give Call of Juarez Gunslinger a go because it's so different from any other game out there and I am glad that I did. This game will definitely get your attention. It has a decent story line that will keep you hooked right away but the ending is predictable. I will talk more about that later.
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.
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.
