Call of Juarez: Humdinger

GameCritics.com
7 August 2013
  • Conclusion: According to Silas, he's crossed paths with nearly every notable figure from that time period.
  • Pros: Getting a high combo streak and topping it off by swerving out of the path of an otherwise fatal gunshot.
  • Cons: The dueling is standard fare, and not much fun.

  • Excerpt: After a rather disappointing zombie game from Techland ( Dead Island ), this developer is back in business with the excellent XBox Live game, Call of Juarez Gunslinger that takes this franchise to a whole new gaming level, especially after the abysmal Call of Juarez The Cartel! Hey... some people liked The Cartel but I didn't!

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger

  • Conclusion: Call of Juarez: Gunslinger redirects the series’ tribute act to the Western with a comic sensibility perfectly suited to a short, action-heavy campaign. It looks and plays better than just about anything in the Techland catalogue, and does so as a downloadable title at a fraction of retail cost. Suddenly, The Cartel seems twice as unfortunate.

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger

Digital Chumps

  • Conclusion: This displays why downloadable services like XBLA exist. Clearly, Techland had some ideas for a new installment in a series, but weren't enough to warrant a disc release. So instead of creating a bunch of nonsense to constitute a full $60 release, they worked things down and made an abbreviated experience for a lower price. Playing the game is a blast, as the whole "desperado" feeling comes through in spades. Story is a fun play through, and could be done in one sitting.

23 May 2013
  • Conclusion: A great Western, a great FPS, and a great downloadable title. The gameplay only gets a bit stale after the first playthrough, but the arcade modes liven things up. Absolutely worth a purchase.
  • Pros: Great gunplay, Accurate weapons and setting, Bullet time is still fun
  • Cons: Fighting gatling bosses is just a chore, Dueling could easily have been made multiplayer

22 May 2013
  • Excerpt: After the travesty that was the modern day set Call of Juarez: The Cartel , many wondered if we'd seen the last of this underrated series from Ubisoft. Luckily, Call of Juarez Gunslinger has returned to its roots in the Wild West, but with a twist. Much like Ubisoft's other downloadable gem, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon , Call of Juarez Gunslinger pushes the boundaries of what the classic series is known for and produces an incredibly entertaining and addictive game at a...

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger

  • Excerpt: There’s nothing particularly surprising about Call of Juarez: Gunslinger . It’s a western-themed first-person corridor shooter in much the same vein as the series’ earliest installments, even if the stories don’t connect at all. What is surprising, however, is that content of this quantity and quality costs just $15.
  • Pros: + Fun, engaging action that delivers where it counts., + Excellent writing and narration, plus a few cool tricks.
  • Cons: ? …but at this price, who could say no?

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger Review

GameSpot
20 May 2013
  • Excerpt: ' Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is a remarkable shooter, but not because of its story, or its visuals, or some innovative new game mechanic. No, what makes Gunslinger so successful is its focus on delivering some of the most entertaining shooting around. Each and every bullet fired from your trusty six-shooter rings out with a booming blast that echoes around the valleys of the Old West and slams into villainous cowboys with a thoroughly satisfying splat.
  • Pros: Tight, accurate shooting, Compelling combo mechanic, Weapons have a satisfying heft and sound to them, Well-designed levels, Tense quick-draw duels
  • Cons: Gatling gun boss battles are shallow and frustrating, Predictable ending
