10 INCREDIBLE Video Game Sequels Everyone Ignores

9. Call Of Juarez: Gunslinger

The fourth game in the Call of Juarez series, Gunslinger was released in 2013, although the franchise had been in a steady decline for a number of years prior.

The first installment, Call of Juarez, received mixed reviews, as did the 2009 sequel, and the third title, The Cartel, was somewhat of a dumpster fire.

Given that Gunslinger was just the latest in a line of middling Western titles dubbed little more than a poor man's Red Dead, no one held too much hope for its chances of being a solid game.

But actually, they were wrong. Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is a solid first-person shooter that uses its Western setting to its advantage, adding a sense of colour and humour to proceedings by way of the use of an unreliable narrator in main character Silas Greaves.

Each level of the game takes place in the imagination of the bar patrons to which Silas tells the tales of his adventures, and in-game collectibles dubbed "nuggets of truth" reveal the historical truths behind the stories.

Gunslinger is, by quite a margin, the best title in the Call of Juarez series, and it's well worth a play.
