Probably late 1800's maybe very early into 1900s.

That's around the wild west time frame.

Ya, its like late 1800's...

It's a decent game, but i wasn't a huge fan of it. I actually haven't finished it though.

Like has been already said....late 1800's or early 1900's would be my guess.

I like the game because it is a little different shooter, than the norm......I really like the old west theme, it is a good change of pace.

There has been a nice chase on horseback, I have been rabbit hunting with a bow & arrows, and I have climbed a very large mountain of a rock.....and been in a few gunfights along the way.....much fun for me.

Well....Call of Juarez is finished, and I must say it was a way better game than I thought it would be....much fun.....

I also have installed the newer drivers for my 9800GTX and I have not had any problems with this driver not working properly so far...knock on wood.

I am really loving my new card as it is running things nice at 1680x1050 with AA.....I like that

Anyway i am now on the early stages of Lost Planet...the game has some nice visuals, but it has that direct console port feeling to it....it feels consoley that way too many games these days....Call Of Juarez did not give me this feeling. The story and voice acting also is not as good as Juarez IMO.
The game also needs to be activated to your steam account, which I am not real fond of...nothing against steam....but why can't I just install like any other game and install it on my sons pc as well???

Anyway here are some early screenshots of Lost Planet







I can stongly suggest both the 9800GTX and the Call Of Juarez game, The Call Of Juarez game can be had for only around $8, and that includes shipping...off e-bay.

I really am not sure yet about Lost Planet.

LOL I was thinking the same thing about a 9800gtx for 8 bucks, I just start COD4 day-before yesterday, and beat it in 3 2 hour periods, best game I've ever played, but I can't play Multiplayer D:
