After the poor reception of Call of Juarez: The Cartel, Ubisoft had to work fast to save the franchise from certain destruction. Luckily, Ubisoft placed the franchise in the capable hands of Techland, and we are all better off for the decision. However, the game caught many by surprise, considering how poorly the previous game was received. Little did we know that our expectations were about to be exceeded. The end result is a very solid, old-western shooter that gives Red Dead Redemption a run for its money.
