GIZORAMA - Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is Techland’s fourth entry in the Call of Juarez series. A budget title with a $15 price tag, it’s a stylish first-person shooter set in the lawless Wild West of the late 1800s. Though it certainly has more-than-competent FPS gameplay, the stars of the show here are the new and interesting storytelling mechanics that deserve much more than a passing glance.
The entirety of the gameplay is presented as a flashback while an aging bounty hunter by the name of Silas Greaves recalls stories from his life’s outlaw-tackling career to a handful of listeners in a quiet saloon. The player controls Silas the younger, as his much older self narrates the happenings of the gameplay in a Bastion-like manner. As a result, this mechanic leads to some intriguing events which we’ll get into a little later in this review.
