What starts as an authentically gruff assessment of a hero of the Wild West, soon becomes a ridiculously excitable celebration of violence, arcade action and skill shots. If you want to place the exact moment when the launch trailer for Call of Juarez: Gunslinger descends into over-the-top silliness, it's right around the line: "the face is one of Silas' favourite places to shoot people."

Previous Gunslinger footage has hinted that the story of Silas Greaves might not be as accurate as he'd have you believe. Here we see that in effect, as an ambush is switched out been Native Americans and cowboys - Greaves proving something of an unreliable narrator when it comes to the retelling of his tale.

Story aside, the action has more than a hint of Bulletstorm, thanks to the skill points awarded for certain kills, and an arcade mode that dispenses with the narrative altogether.

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is out tomorrow.
