How we rate the games?
Call of Juarez Gunslinger is a Western type of game. You are actually playing as a first person shooter and learn the story of the famous Gunslinger in the "damn western". Anyway, the story was interesting and intriguing and the game was very enjoyable. The controls were very accurate and the headshot worked like a charm. When you just start the game you hear about the story of one of the most famous gunslingers. The visual effects give a feeling like it was happening in the past and you start attacking your enemies, killing them one by one until you reach a point where you actually have to defeat your enemies head to head, shooting them before they shoot you.
It somewhat thrills the player and brings back the history, how all things really happened at that time. You can choose different types of weapons and what is most interesting is that you can actually upgrade your skills by killing other players, completing objectives and finding secrets spread around the world. Depending on which path of skills you choose, you can upgrade different types of weapons and skills. The path I choose in the video gameplay, allowed me to notice secrets which were near the player, zoom further and much more.
In the game you will notice a pistol gauge which when filled, will create a slow motion effect, allowing you to kill the enemies without receiving a lot of damage. It looks more like slowing the enemies down so they can't actually shoot and move fast. The more enemies you kill the faster the gauge will fill and the more points you will earn. As in a lot of other games, those points are renown as experience points, which in turn will allow you to upgrade your skills.
During the game you will find some secrets. Those secrets, can also allow you to see different cards of those dangerous gunslingers or your friends. You can learn a lot of stuff from these cards, but it is not a really big deal after all. The face to face parts of the game are quite good. You can be the guy who makes the move first and finish the enemy in a dishonest way, or you can finish him after he makes the first move. This is not an easy task though and depending on the difficulty level you are playing at, it might become very irritating for some players to defeat their enemy in an honest way.
When it comes to the graphics, this game is not a big deal. I didn't enjoy them so much. Rather than enjoying the graphics, you will certainly enjoy the special effects of the game. A lot of workings have been made behind the scenes to make the game look good. There are some cases though, when you can't attack the enemy, even if you are aiming exactly at them. This might be a pixel detection problem and it is irritating, unless you enjoy shooting a lot at your enemies!
When it comes to first person shooter, this game is a true winner. It might become boring after some time, but at least you earn a history lesson. If you are a gunslinger in real life, than this game is exactly for you!
