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...
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.
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...
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.

Cons: Fighting gatling bosses is just a chore, Dueling could easily have been made multiplayer
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.
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.
Pros: + Fun, engaging action that delivers where it counts., + Excellent writing and narration, plus a few cool tricks.
Conclusion: Concept: Relive the unreliable memories of an old bounty hunter
Graphics: Techland takes some cues from Borderlands’ art style
Sound: Solid voice-over work helps sell the running narrative
Playability: Gunplay is responsive and tense
Entertainment: Story mode is a lot of fun, and arcade mode keeps...
Summary: Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is a great little shooter that I will happily be dipping into again for a dose of sunshine over the rainy summer months. There is enough here to keep you entertained for quite a while and, for the price, I can’t think of a way to get more bang for your buck.
