    Hello friends,

    So This game was released in 2013. long ago and it become the best wild west game ever made (sorry RDR). the reason it being because its incredibly fun, its gunplay is almost FEAR and Doom tier. its story is amazing and lot like Max payne as it has comic book style cutscene and main character silas greeves is so badass. its Max payne equivalent of western FPS.

    Before Gunslinger, COJ games were not good. original was mediocre, bound in blood was ok but kinda bland and cartel was worst of all. It was out of nowhere and become great.

    so i have been thinking that where is the sequel? why did techland made shitty Dying light instead of its sequel. although Dying light 2 looks great but i really hope they will make a sequel to this. the only problem with this game was its too short but it was not full price game. if sequel use bigger budget and being more longer with linear but somewhat open design then it will become masterpiece.

    so my friends, do we need sequel to best western game ever made? lets discuss.



  • I tried it after you recommend it and I must say it was fantastic, a far cry from the other two I bought. I also agree that it's up there as the best game with a western setting, alongside Outlaws that is.



  • I always liked Call of Juarez but I’ve only played the first two. Never played Gunslinger which you’re saying is a huge leap up but I still liked the original two.

    Wouldn’t call them the best shooters or the best western but they were definitely fun. I just don’t know if the series holds any weight. They had their come up when FPS games were the norm and it was one of the first 360 games with that beautiful HD gloss.

    Not sure what the catch would be for a new COJ game other than the genre. But I welcome it.

    Thats the thing. you missed one that is easily best in series while played only mediocre ones.

    Gunslinger is far different than previous games and doesnot take itself serious. its also remind me of Max payne due to having comic book style cutscene.



  • Gunslinger is indeed a vastly different beast. FPS' have had an ongoing issue for ages now in that they forgot where the fun is and it's true, the first two CoJ games were as generic and lifeless as can be. Gunslinger however threw it all away and gave us a fast paced and slick shooter that recognised where the genre had gone wrong in recent years.



  • I'm not a big shooters guy, and even I liked Gunslinger.

    Bound in blood was COD in wildwest lol.

    I mean last gen most FPS were become COD clones. its kinda strange that techland didnot release any new one once series got interested.



  • Maybe I'm wrong but isn't the CoJ IP held up in some red tape, like Techland and Ubisoft co-own it something?
