Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood
Cool Western game
This western style first person shooter is different and fun from most of this style. You get to choose who you want to play as and both brothers have different abilities which help you kill a lot of enemies at once.
Very Impressive Game!
At first i had no interest in this game period. Then i decided to take a look at it since my friend did. And let me tell you the game is downright amazing!! The single player is very addicting, and pretty lengthy which is good. But this game shines in multiplayer. The different game modes are all fun and unlocking all the 13 classes is a great time, i actually just finished unlocking them all!! Now for the litte components, the graphics are stunning in HD, and the environment looks great. The sound is very good too. I think it is also a very cool feature that you can pick what McCall brother to play with in the story mode, because they both have their benefits like Thomas having rifles for long range, or Ray having double pistols in order to kill anyone in his path. Overall i havehad this game since the day it came out and havent played another game since, and have probably put at least a day worth of time into it, belive me if your looking for a game that will last you awhile this is it!!!!
It was so good, but then...
When i downloaded this game to my xbox i was so happy. When it was done downloading i started the campaign immediaetly and it was by far the best campaign i have ever played, a little short, it took me about 6 hrs. to beat and i loved the aspect of the side quests at starts of missions, it is a partial free roam on ch.6 and i think ch.8, again the campaign was great, after i was done with the campaign though i went on to the multiplayer and that was the biggest dissapointment ever, my first match was annoying because it was so easy for everybody to steal my kills for they already had all of the goldplated high class guns(which still take 2 shots to kill) after i realized starter pistols did nothing i tried the prime rifle it also sucked it took to shots point blank to kill a guy the only thing i could kill people with was the dinamite which they should have never added because it is the most unrealistic thing ever it has a tiny firecracker like explosion that can kill a whole room of people, in the end i liked the game but they just shouldve spent more time on the multiplayer
Wild, wild west...
The one thing there is so few of is a true western based game. Call of Juarez combines first person shooter with an epic story explaining how Ray became Reverend Ray. The game had great graphics, controls were smooth, the animation was a bit rough at times like when climbing and the horse movments, but that shouldnt turn you away. The game is action packed and a great buy for anyone who is a fan of the western genre!
Ok, I really liked the first one, so I was really excited about this one. I was a little disappointed. The story line was great, the ending was very fitting, the cut scenes are what really make this game, but the game play itself was very easy, almost to linear and was lacking in the way you could upgrade weapons, the weapon selection and sometimes the voices were lost. All in all it was ok, I replayed a few times to try every scene with each character, now, it will probably sit for a long time until I really really bored. I wish they would have put a little of the great work of the cut scenes into the overall game. I wish they would have had more weapons and better ways to upgrade, did not really notice a big difference in upgrades except in the pistol reload time. I also wish they could have changed up the ending, just a little bit, with the same but slightly different ending depending on which character you chose to play. The end guides you and is another part of the linear aspect that I hated. We are past linear and need more!!!!....sorry
ok, so some of you have read the other reviews saying graphics are bad and what not, wel dont listen to them, this game is the most amazing ive played,the challenge is good even on a low difficulty, the graphics are amazing, awesome gun sounds, and the voice is awesome to, it really sounds like its coming from your guy and it just sounds really good, alot of different gun choices, there is free roam, it doesnt come till a little later in the game but be patient, and you can get money doin side quests and things, with your money, you can buy better weapons and ammo for the rest of the game, The story is great, a little short, but great, the cut scenes are what make the game the best, it just makes you want to play more more and more, and there arent many westerns, i bought this because i couldnt wait for red dead redemption, i wanted a western fast! so i got this one and so happy i did, and you will to, BUY IT
I never played the first one but this game is great!!!! The graphics are breath taking if you have an hd tv. The storyline is so great, and it's almost like it's a movie. I don't like how there are only like not even 10 different weapons in the game. And if you count any kind of pistol as still just one gun then there's 5/6 weapons. Dynamite, pistol, shotgon, rifle, sniper which I'm pretty sure is a rifle, or a bow. The storyline is kind of short but i beat it on medium. I think that after you beat the game you can play a few more chapters on hard or very hard. The online play is very fun and you will be playing for hours. It gets kind of boring after a while doing the same thing over and over and over. I will let you know now that this game is great, but sooner or later it will get old and you will get tired of it. AT LEAST GO GET IT USED!!!!!!!!!
Not sure I quite understand why they have the game listed as costing more used than new but oh well. I'm playing this game presently and it's very awesome. I played the first one and this one expands on it quite nicely. Playing at 720 p and it looks incredible, the graphics are superbly done. The fast pace of the game is very challenging and when you have a room full of bad guys to shoot the slow down mode is very nice to play and watch. The duels are well thought out and add to the gameplay. Some very authentic looking guns are in this game, you can do missions and make more money to buy better guns. This version of the game is a prequel to the first one where you get an idea of where Ray comes from, Ray is also in the first game, the story is very good, there is lots of cussing in the game, but it's a Western, surely many outlaws did plenty of that in their day. Go buy this game if you enjoy Westerns, I just love the game.
way better than the first
I wasn't really following the news on the game as it was being made because I thought it would be about the same as the first which wasn't very good. But when I saw Gamespot's very positive review, I thought I'd rent it to see what's so much better about it; in short, everything is improved, and it's 10 times better than the original game. The graphics, gameplay, sound, controls, and the storyline have all gotten a major overhaul. It's extremely fun and satisfying to shoot especially in the gun duels. The graphics are the best eyecandy ever and I was also surprised to see some open-world sections in the game (they're pretty fair sized for an fps that takes place mostly in standard linear fps environments). There are plenty of other well done improvements that I haven't mentioned. Don't judge this game by the first game. I would recommend this game to anyone who loves western games or movies. I'd give this game a 9/10.
One of the best games on 360
I got this game for my birthday and when I first popped it in and played the first level I hated it with every bit of my soul. I gave it a few days and tried again and I couldn't put it down until I beat it. It's great. The storyline is great and filled with plenty of twists and turns and there are several different character groups that come into play which was unexpected for me. You have to battle the Norh (civil war), a mexian man (won't give away his name) , native americans and several different thieves and officials. You'll laugh from the humor from the character and you'll find the storyline realistic and exciting. The guns can be a little frsutrating at times due to the fact that some only have two shots or take a little while to re-load but it's just realistic. They didn't have uzi's that you could do drive by's back then. You get to use cool features like using a horse as your trasportation, using a lasso to get up on high things, having a parter (computer controlled) heloing you through the entire game and seeing how all of these old guns worked. This is a great game and you should definetly get it if you like the old "western" like games.
