Call of Juarez: Gunslinger
Games Like Red Dead Redemption
While Red Dead Redemption stands out as arguably the best western shooter in gaming history, there is no question that the Call of Juarez series has helped keep the genre alive until it released. The series’ most recent installment, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, was easily the best one yet.
The 2013 first-person shooter told the tale of a legendary old bounty hunter named Silas Greaves. Players lived the gunslinger’s adventures, all told via a comic book-like flashback narrative. Core gameplay elements revolved around bullet time slowdowns and gunslinger duels, with the showdowns rapping up each chapter.
The game also included three unique game modes (story, arcade, and duel), essentially allowing players to isolate their favorite parts of the game, like duels, instead of having to play through the story just to get to them. While simple, the game’s ending, as well as the ultimatum it presents, is a personal favorite of mine.
