Western

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger

Call of Juarez Gunslinger is the most fun I have had with a western experience since Red Dead Redemption and is easily Techland at their best. It’s kind of a shame to know that their A team was working on this while Dead Island Riptide was thrown together but I’m grateful that Gunslinger exists because it’s a solid and fun first person shooter with some great hooks in it. Techland has shown that with a small downloadable title they can shine with the best and I can only hope that this game will serve as a template for the next proper Call of Juarez game because what they are doing here is working and I would love to see it blown up to a full retail game but for fifteen dollars you can’t go wrong with Gunslinger.

Red Dead Redemption

However, I can say without any hesitation that the game that Rockstar put out this year in Red Dead Redemption has done for the Wild West genre in video games what Mario did for platformers. The whole Wild West has been a huge missed opportunity for the video game industry, until now where we finally have a game that has put the Wild West back on the map.

Gun Showdown

Although the controls just weren’t as fluid as they were on the consoles, it was good to see that they could take a console game and actually make it even deeper on a handheld. If you liked Gun and want to take it on the road, you’re going to really enjoy Gun Showdown for the PSP.
