Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger PS3

This was the arcade shooter released by Ubi last year, where you take on the role of old-timer Silas Greaves telling tall tales to a group of people in a saloon, and reliving those tales as a player.

The conceit made a standard FPS a little more interesting - "Did I say Apaches? No, I was surrounded by bandits!" as the Apaches disappear in real time and are replaced by bandits etc.

The environments were nice and the game was reasonably polished, but I was bored and trying to lower the difficulty half way through. There were several sections where you were dumped in an arena and had to fight off hordes of enemies, one in particular where the boss was outside the tiny arena and throwing sticks of dynamite in at you was very annoying. Not feeling the love for this game and feel it was very overrated but I can see the appeal.
