Preview: Call of Juarez Gunslinger | Xboxer360

Ben of Xboxer360 writes, "Call of Juarez is one of the most well-known western shooters out there, but maybe for the wrong reasons. After the monumental failure that was Call of Juarez The Cartel, everyone imagined Ubisoft would give up on its dabbling in the western franchise, especially considering there have been so many great peers for it to contend with. Not one to give up on solid ideas however, Ubisoft and Techland are back with a brand new entry into the franchise, with hopes of breathing new life into the series by breaking it down and stripping it back to its roots. I was lucky enough to get some play time with Gunslinger and I have to admit that although dubious I came out truly impressed.

The present day setting of The Cartel has been scrapped in favour of a revisit to the good old wild west, putting you in the shoes of legendary bounty hunter, Silas Greaves. Regaling his life's many stories to a bar of locals, Silas tells his story as you play, unfolding your next actions and commenting on your success and failures as you move along (If you’ve played Bastion you’ll have some idea of what to expect). This was a really nice touch, which not only added to the authentic western movie feel that Techland are clearly going for, but it also left the game open to some creative story telling techniques." (Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
