Taking place around 1910 you play as the lone outlaw legendary bounty hunter named Silas Greaves, as he enters a saloon where he meets a few patrons where sitting at a table. As Silas sits down to chat with the people in the saloon he begins to tell them stories of his wild adventures across the old west, hanging out with other outlaws like Billy the Kid and taking on gangs. The game goes back to these stories as the player takes control of Silas, as he narrates every detail of the events that happened to him while tracking down every single bounty and enemies he faced.
Originally release back in 2013 for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is an Arcade style western first person shooter game develop by Ubisoft. Now re-released for Nintendo Switch on December 10, 2019 is it still as a fun experience on this new system?
in short, yes it is.
Graphics dark color, sharp environment and character animation. Each frame runs absolutely great, even in handheld mode.
An interesting feature that was added for Gunslinger is, while in handheld mode as you zoom in with your gun , you can move your Switch and Silas hands will target depends the direction you are moving it. You can still move it with the joystick which is a much better to aim but is still a very interesting feature.
Sound effects makes the help brings life to the environment, gun effects and character movement.
Voice acting is very well done, especially by Silas when he is telling the story or interrupting your game play when he gets something wrong.
If you finish the game there’s also a fun arcade mode where you can play as three different characters and enjoy the game in a new way, while shooting your way against some outlaws.
So this Switch port does not change the experience, the one thing that you should be aware of this game. If you are considering getting a physical copy in a store, be in mind that like Overwatch and Wolfenstein: Youngblood there is no cartridge. You will be getting a downloadable code to type in on the eShop, so perhaps consider just getting a $20 card. That would be more than enough to get your copy of this game.
