Call of Juarez: Gunslinger Review | The Game Scouts

Tin Salamunic: Despite its shortcomings, Techland’s 2009 sequel Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood was a sleeper hit offering exciting shooting mechanics, a beautiful Wild West backdrop, and a meaty campaign. Shifting the FPS genre to a Western setting felt refreshing and it was a real shame that The Cartel took the entire franchise to its grave two years later. Hoping to redeem themselves, Techland decided to revert to its old Western roots with a shift towards arcade-style gameplay and a good dose of humor. While I was somewhat skeptical at first, I’m happy to report that Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is a remarkable sequel that puts the series back on the map. With its comic book style presentation and a heavier focus on headshot combos and climbing score charts, Techland finally found the perfect balance between western badassery and unadulterated silliness. (Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 8.5/10
