TweakTown: Call of Juarez in many ways was before its time. It took the player into the old west (now made popular again by the stellar Red Dead Redemption from Rockstar) and mirrored many of the great westerns we have seen from Hollywood over the years. Techland had the makings of a good game, but technical issues and overall style of the game needed improvement which occurred with the second title. For the third, for some reason they felt it necessary to move to modern times and the result in general is not good. We had a feeling that the series wouldn't translate well to modern times, and we were right. However, the reason why shocked even us.
