For a middling series with enough fans to draw some attention but perhaps not enough to swarm retail stores, the arcade format makes a great home for an in-between release. We saw it previously with Alan Wake and Far Cry, and now we're seeing it this week with the Call of Juarez series.

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger
Developer: Techland
Publisher: Ubisoft
Price: 1200 MSP
From the dust of a gold mine to the dirt of a saloon, Call of Juarez® Gunslinger is a real homage to the Wild West tales. Live the epic journey of a ruthless bounty hunter onto the trail of the West’s most notorious outlaws. Blurring the lines between man and myth, this adventure made of memorable encounters unveils the untold truth behind some of the greatest legends of the Old West.
