Recently I downloaded the Call of Juarez Gunslinger demo off Steam and recommend you give it a try. Not too many demos hit Steam, so its cool to get one worth checking out. I previously picked up Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood used at Gamestop and had such a bad time with it I actually resold it.

That said, Ubisoft did a great job with Gunslinger and absolutely nailed the western feel. The shooting is top notch and I love the way the different six-shooters feel as you use them. The game features a recharge element where you can pause time and the game allows you to one shot bad-guys as they freeze. This is really useful for busting in to a room to freeze everyone and then shoot them all in the face quickly. At one point you have a rifle and do that and actually seems like you are charging in, western movie style.

I wasn't particularly in love with the way the game presents the story. It starts by someone telling a story and you are playing through the descriptions he gives. I felt this was a bit off and just wanted to go at the game alone for the most part.

Since the game is a free demo download on Steam, I seriously recommend you give Gunslinger a try.

Have you played Red Dead Redemption? That game is probably in my top 10 ever, and one main reason I liked it is because it really felt like you were in a western. They killed it.

I wish it got a PC port, but alas.

Yes, I have heard that. One of my friends has the GoTY on PS3 and I have yet to borrow it to give it a go. Its on my list though.
