Spaghetti Western Immersion

User Rating: 9 | Call of Juarez: Gunslinger PC

Though not many gunfights in the old west were face-to-face shootouts with rules about who could draw first, you'll get plenty of action and suspense in this enjoyable game. Some say "Bound in Blood" was better but I may not ever know for sure because I'm at Windows 8.1 now and that game's not designed to play outside of Windows XP. At any rate, if you ever wanted to feel like you were in a Spaghetti Western like Clint Eastwood, getting even with outlaws and getting rich doing it, this game is for you. The only downside I noticed in the game was that there was seldom a way to take the stealthy way to higher ground. Seems that your character can't jump or climb more than a foot off the ground unless the developers decide you are at a location where they want you to do that. Sometimes you can't even step over a paint bucket-sized obstruction and you have to walk around it. The overall gameplay though, including storytelling, feel, sound, graphics...a 9.5 out of 10. Buy it.
