Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood was a really fun game. Call of Juarez: The Cartel wasn’t. The good news is that Techland has learned two very valuable lessons: 1. You don’t mess with a pretty solid formula, and 2. The Cartel has been acknowledged as a failure, and the developers aren’t happy about that. They want to fix it. Hence, they’re bringing gamers back to the Old West, where we’ll assume the role of a ruthless bounty hunter who must take out some of history’s most notorious baddies, including Billy the Kid and Jesse James.

One of the returning features will be that kick-ass Concentration Mode, which lets players target multiple enemies in super slo-mo, after which a series of bullets destroy the opposition. But in addition, Gunslinger offers more depth thanks to a brand new skill progression system, which lets us choose specific abilities we want to develop. Furthermore, as the series is going full-on digital for the first time, Techland views this new Call of Juarez as a somewhat experimental effort. Unfortunately, co-op is gone but you might appreciate the narrative contained in the campaign; the storyline could be more involving than ever before.
