Title
One Last Bullet in The Chamber
A short yet witty tribute to spaghetti westerns and tales of the Wild West. One of the best linear shooters I've ever played with a pretty good story to boot.

Playing as Silas Greaves as he relives his days of vengeance and bounty hunting, COJ:G combines simple yet skill-based gunplay with a "better than you'd think" narrative campaign to give you one of the best linear shooters of the best two decades. It's a crime this game isn't praised more as it is criminally underrated given the price and entertainment value that you can get out of it. Not to mention, it has one of the best implementations of old west dueling I've ever seen in video games.

As someone else put it, Gunslinger perfectly represents the Xbox Live Arcade-era of games. Games with a quality price that gives you more entertainment and replayability than most AAA games while exploring mechanics and themes that the bigger companies might not touch.

Title
Gun in the holdster
Call of Juarez: Gunslinger in a game in which you can pretty much beat in one setting, but dont let that scare you. Its a very solid fps.

Its western setting, cell shaded graphical style and unique narration are more than enough to set it apart. It uses an unreliable narrator, and cleverly ties that to the game, as you witness the scenary change around you as the narrator changes his story on the fly.

Best of all, its really fun to play. Its very arcadey in the sense that missions have highscores, and they are very focused on the shooting itself. The guns are solid to shoot and there is a varied arsenal, and using slow motion to go for headshots is really satisfying. That said, the visuals did make detecting enemies in the scenary a bit hard at times. It also features some duels, which have yet to be represented in a game in a way that they are fun.

In the end i guess that its good that its quite a short game because things start getting repetitive and annoyingly difficult. Definitly worth playing.

    The perfect Xbox Live Arcade game. Encapsulates so much about what I loved about that format. Small little 15 dollar games you you could play in an afternoon.
