Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood
HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE
I was really excited to see this game, having not played the first but enjoying westerns I was really looking forward to it even a year before it came out. Much to my dismay after renting the game I took it back early. This is one of (if not the) WORST games I have ever played. The script and dialogue are terrbile. The graphics suck. you die constantly even on easy mode, and the loading times are loooong. I even tried some of the multiplayer games, also horrible. It seems like no matter what you can get killed in one shot. I guess if you love FPS you should try it, but most definately wait for a price drop, because this game is waay overrated. When you need to use environmental weapons like turrets or cannons theyre innacurate and slow. Even if you do manage to hit the target, nothing happens, once the smoke clears theyre perfectly fine. You'll find yourself burned alive if you get withing 20 feet of fire, which makes the game impossible when trying to go through trenches.
This western game is a good game you can duel wield and it's nice that you have the choice to shot the right hand gun or the left wich is verry nice The graphics are real nice you can ride a horse but i wish the horse riding was a lil better then it is but hey nothing is perfect if it was there would not be any reviews I bought the game two weeks ago and i have been playing it ever sense i can not put it down the story line is real cool makes you feel like your in a western movie or something i love playing it online there's alot of matchie's online like robbing a bank man hunt and more when i play i feel like iam in the old days i have not found any problem's with the online play there's alot of people playing online i get on and find alot of new people everytime i agree with zippo this game is a game of it's own it's better then any of the outher western games out there its a good game to have in any game collection so go get it and get online so i can have a nother person to shoot at.
Bought online used sold it online used
Let me start to say i wanted to rent this game first. Could not find a place to rent it. That should have been my red flag right there, but no.......... I had to go buy it lucky for me didn't not pay full retail price. Just a little over half. The game straight up sucks. There's other words I can use to describe but i want you all to read this so you don't throw your money away. Storyline : I really tried to get into the story but its so hard All you were was a lil do boy go do this go do that. I wasted 3 hours forcing my self to get into the story at times i wanted to turn the revolver on myself and pull the trigger. Challenge : Just try in to play the game was the challenge. Online : Two matches and I was through. I can keep talkin about how bad this game is but i think you all get the picture. Games like this is why I wait for somebody else to buy the game and post it online for a cheap price. If i would had paid retail price for this. It would had been Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood in the manufacturing building!!!!!!!!!
this game was good. the story was so so but the gameplay was pretty awesome. the game took me about 8 hours to beat. kinda easy but still great game. the only thing i didnt like about it was the weapon selection. they couldve done more with that and had more rifles or shotguns to choose from. i also liked how you could choose to play ray or thomas in the levels after the first two. the standoffs were pretty cool too. it made you feel like you were actually in like a cowboy/western movie. the graphics were amazing and you couldnt help but to stare at the scenery. the voices got a bit annoying tho but if you turn down the volume you should be cool. it wouldve been better if they made this more of a free roam game because the missions jst kept comin and comin givin you no breaks to jst walk around and explore. but all in all pretty cool game.
For real game lovers this game is for you
This game is great for game lovers like myself. The storyline is great and, and the graphics is really good. I wish that the concentration was like the first one that came out. but it doesn't hurt the game at all. I work 12 hours so i haven't gotten to get in it like i won'ted to yet. But i'm off for three days and i'll be on it the whole time. I played the online and it really was good. Western enviroment. Thats was different. The responsiveness of the game is good to. no lag. sounds good. I would of given it a ten all the way across the board but they changed the concentration mode,the first game you had more control of the concentration mode than the new game. So i gave is 6 out of 7 10's, and 1 nine. If you like shooters game this game is for you, believe me. I'm 97% shooters and then others but i'm going to be putting alot of time in on this game and its online so when you finish the story mode you have online play and you can't beat a good game with online play. So go get it and i'll see you on there for sure.
What a great game!!!!
If your a fan of FPS games, you will really enjoy this game. The graphics are excellent, and so is the audio. There are not that many games that take place in the represented time period...( civil war/ old west) So when one does get released, and it is this good of a game, it stands out fast. The storyline is pretty good, and is fun to follow throughout the game. You are given the choice between chapters to play as one of two brothers, each with thier own strengths and weaknesses. The only part of the game that bothers me in any way is the timer. If you are taking to long to complete a level, a 60 second timer visually represented by the bullet compartment of a revolver, forces you to run to the end of the level, through gunfire just to make it to the end, so you dont have to start over. One word of advice when playing this game... look out for the dynamite!!!! lol
After playing through a good portion of Call of Juarez, I figured I would write a review. First of all the graphics are great! The graphics are smooth, the gameplay is excellent! I especially enjoyed using the two six-shooters with the interface for firing, reloading, and a mode called "concentration" (Which is slow motion so you can aim and shoot multiple targets quickly... At first I didn't realize you just had to move the targeting cursor over each enemy and I accidentally unloaded all my shots onto one of 5 enemies. Poor guy haha) The storyline is pretty good. I didn't find it riveting and enthralling like a Fallout 3 or a MGS4, but it was good enough to make enjoyable. The main problem I had with this game is that it seems every 10 feet the game stops at the checkpoints to "save" and in all probability to load up the next section of the game... This really detracts from the flow of the game.. Badly. I couldn't handle it after a while and eventually I returned the game. This is definitely a rent before buyer, but a good game anyhow!
Better than latest one
At first when you start out in the civil war it's fun, but then it's bassicly a tutorial on how to use the controls, and a breif history on the main characters. Once the part on the civil war is over you turn into a gunslinger/ outlaw in search of the gold in Juarez. Along the way you can go to gunsmith stores to buy better and more advanced wepons. My favorite missions are the ones where it's almost like a free roam mission where you hang out in front of a gun store that have bounty/ wanted posters that you can cololect extra money off, of. ( You'll know what I'm talking about.) One hint is to save money for better riffles/ revolvers. Durring the campain you can choose to use either of the characters with there spiecal wepon skills. As for online it's fun when someone is actually playing. So pay attention to cutscenes and have fun.
good for anyone whos into the wild west
call of juarez is set as a prequel to the first game were players embody ray or thomas the challenge of this game is not something to worry about if your just a casual game well i love the controls of this it handles like a new mercedes using L2 to sprint is easier the holding the left stick down the AI is really not what shines through its like there all drunk heres an example mostly every time youre in a firefight the desperados are standing in the open not in cover thinking they are like invincible to death now the multiplayer would be good if there werent that many hackers i was playing multiplayer for a while nothing wrong but now its full of hackers so if you are only into multiplayer dont buy this disapointment u think ubisoft would improve from the first game!?
Best Wild West Shooter But...
Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood I took back to Game Stop for a few reasons; the game was just decent, nobody plays online, the game froze for a few seconds sometimes, the graphics weren't very good, the classes weren't very good, and switching weapons was a pain. That is why you shouldn't get the game here is why you should; the game is wild west, you can use a crossbow, they have a sniper rifle, and the maps are kind of cool. Over all i would not recommend this game to a friend.
