Rated 10 out of 10 by Tonchito Awesome game!
Call of Juarez is a unique first-person shooter set in the classic Wild West.The game is set in Texas back in 1882 and sees the player take on the role of two characters: Billy Candle, an outlaw who has been accused of murdering his mother and stepfather; and Ray McCall, a gunslinger with the belief that god has chosen him to kill the evil people in the world - one such person being Billy Candle. In addition to the single-player game, Call of Juarez will include support for Xbox Live with an intense multiplayer mode and a host of maps to play on.Yeah i know we are at November 2009, but i got this game on 2007; simply awesome, multiplayer is not so good but the storyline is like a movie combined with an excellent gameplay.Graphics are nice. I prefer this campaign from Bound in Blood´s one, but the multiplayer of Bound in Blood is frenetic and awesome, not a lot of classes but very fun.Returning to this game, as i said, this game is a game you need to play.
Rated 5 out of 10 by Soverngarde183 Good Story, poor design
The story is rather what you would expect from a game of this genre. A treasure hunt with two somewhat related and unlikely heroes. This game's game play is hard to get used to and all around too sensitive. One wrong move and you find yourself plummeting to your death. There is also a lack of direction while you always know what your goal is it is sometimes very hard to distinguish exactly what the game wants you to do. The graphics however are very good for its time and still fairly decent. The sounds and music were all rather... OK there was nothing inspiring about them but no annoying repetitive sounds that many games have. This game's story has little replay value and while it does have multiplayer it is far from noteworthy. Overall I would recommend trying the Red Dead series if you're looking for a good western, not this game.
Rated 1 out of 10 by MC1221 not that great.
ok for starters this game is not that good. i don't see why everyone is freaking out about it. this game would have easily passed as an alright game for the ps2 like 7 years ago. the graphics are good, the story is good, but that is about it. the combat is not really that great. the fact that you cannot choose where to go, just follow a set path all the time is horrible. as for the gameplay, here is what 99% of the levels boil down to: A. follow someone through a set course, WHILE BEING TIMED. the timers switch off from 2nd grade easy to impossibly short. B. you need to get to a certain point, and, (very original) the only way to get there is through hundreds of enemies. they try to incorporate stealth, but even that failed horribly every time i tried it just because in all of the night missions it is impossible to see twenty feet infant of you. now, if all you look for in a game are cool characters and a good story, i would definitely recommend this for you. they did a great job of bringing the characters to life, with their own personalities, ect.. and the story is awesome and well told. but that being said, overall it was a waste of money on my part, so definitely rent first if not completely avoid.
Rated 0 out of 10 by elk00 SWEET!
Wow, finally the newer gunz comes out, as you could say. This game looks very good, for the graphics and all the effects in the game are really lookin good. Story looks very interesting, for ive heard it goes that there's gold and what not, yet its cursed and this man wants it for himself, but all who look for it or desire it go mad etc.. but many other things happen along the way (for you may think that, ooo thats a dumb story line but there is far more to it) and also all these neat features and effects plus loads of ol wild west shoot outs and tons of fun, make this a sweet action packed shooter for all xbox 360 and PC fans! Im also going out to buy it the very first day it comes out on June 5th.
Rated 10 out of 10 by mr.byron Suprising
I got this game for christmas. I didnt expect it to be good but i started playing and it was preety cool. It is a very long story line so if you dont have live this can occupy time. I would recommend buying it because of the price drop.If you have live there are people who play this game on live. The graphics are very good for a western themed game and the duels are amazing. In one level you have to climb a mountain and retreive a feather. This game was good but it wont be able to beat something like COD 4 or Halo 3. If you liked the game GUN you should like this.
Rated 0 out of 10 by mike I give it 7/10
I've been playing FPS since Duke Nukem, Doom and Heretic came out. I played the demo and it's a lotta fun. I do think it's slightly "plain", but then again it is a western FPS, it has to be that way otherwise it wouldn't be a western. I'm not really sure why other people said the game wasn't that good, I think you'll notice most these people haven't even played the demo or they "think" they played the demo but they're not really sure and they rated it anyway... so yeah... I give it a 7/10 in all categories, should be a lotta fun when it comes out.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Trolly mctroll Try it for yourself
Don't pay attention to the bad mouthers giving bad previews of this game. Give it a try for yourself. The PC demo of this game has been out for a while now and is available all over the net. The gameplay is in first person and is really NOTHING LIKE THE GAME GUN. It has nice graphics and very original environments. I thoroughly enjoyed the demo and am eagerly awaiting the arrival of my 360 version that I pre-ordered some time ago. Just give it a chance... If you don't, you might be missing out on a pretty darn good game.

I don't git with da times yo, but who needs dis game son. It is nottin but a gun rip off, I mean you got guns and can slow mo kill people which is just like gun. I havent seen any of the screens from this game or read any of the previews but frim this discription it sounds just like Gun and Red Dead Revolver. So in conclusion I for one will be buying this game, it looks very cool, and I really like western action games.
Rated 0 out of 10 by A7X AdDicT!! Buyer Beware
I recently saw the review for this game on oxm and they gave this game a 6/10. Sure the game is pretty but the AI is completely dumb,(remeber the good ol retarded ai from the moh series). There is way too much slo-mo in this game and of course the story doesn't help it out either. Maybe fans of gun will like this game, but everyone else should steer away from this game.
Rated 0 out of 10 by ihatecallofjuarez Uhhh no
if there is a difference between this game and the one already released in europe someplaces then this may not apply, but otherwise: This game is a pice of crap. Graphicswise, not impressed gameplaywise, also, not impressed storywise, extremely unimpressed And playing as 2 characters? Now I cant bond with just one! POS GAME!!!
