I had rarely heard good things about the Call of Juarez series until Gunslinger which I never heard anything bad about. After having played it myself, I can safely say that it is a fantastic game and one I've never played anything quite like before.
You play as Silas Greaves, playing through stories of past exploits in the wild west as they are being told by yourself in the present. This is one of the game's greatest strengths, as the storytelling not only perfectly matches the action, but will also change the environment and even make you replay parts of the story in different ways as various people tell how they've heard the story before. It may not sound like the best idea, but it plays excellently and I'd love to see more games done in this style.
The other big strength of the game is the gameplay itself. It does arcade shooting action very well and also includes the ability to avoid death by dodging bullets and slow time down with concentration mode. You gain experience for killing enemies with a combo multiplier increasing the value of each kill and can use this experience to gain new skills. Outside of the regular gameplay there is also a rather unique dueling feature. You will be pitted against a famous outlaw in a wild west duel where you must keep your concentration by keeping a reticule on your enemy while keeping your hand ready to draw. It provides an excellent sense of suspense before shots are fired and tests your reaction time very well.
Graphically the game looks pretty good with a pseudo-comic style lightly outlining objects in the game. Don't expect groundbreaking graphics, however. Sound effects are also quite good and fit the game very well.
On the technical side is the only part of the game I'm disappointed in. Call of Juarez Gunslinger runs on the Chrome engine so like all other Chrome engine games I have played it won't run quite smoothly. It likes to drop frames randomly though it will run quite fast. The game does not respond well to ALT+TAB and will get a visible mouse cursor fairly often when using the Steam overlay. FOV can be changed through a config file as with other Chrome engine games.
Buy this game, you won't regret it!
