call of juarez
A Review By Hidai Moya
This isn’t a cowboy simulator, but a straightforward callback to the Western arcade shooter.
In typical Ubisoft fashion it takes real historical events, real outlaws, & real stories & puts its own unique spin on them (if you learned a bunch of stuff playing Assassin’s Creed games this does the same thing).
You play as a gunslinger who encountered all of the legends of the Old West from Billy the Kid to Jesse James & is out for revenge against the man who murdered his brother.
The shooting galleries are a terrific variety of Western settings. Staying true to its roots the shooting mechanics themselves are simple & effective & make you feel as if you were standing right in front of the arcade machine putting quarters in.
If you think Red Dead is too slow or simply need an alternative Western game this is the one!
