Many thought that the Call of Juarez series had run its course following the disastrous release of Call of Juarez: The Cartel. The backlash it received from its critics and audience seemed like it was the death knell for the western series. Then a little downloadable game released in 2013 as a final send off to the series called Call of Juarez: Gunslinger.
Gunslinger taps into the schlocky fun of Borderlands, the blistering action of a light-gun arcade shooter, some narrative mechanics from Bastion, and the story of a pulp western. It balances all of these elements astonishingly well, with a handful of flaws.
