Summary: I really wanted to like this game but I rarely play online there are to many hackers that just wait for a game to be played. Graphics are great the game has sound issues it will crash if your sound is not setup properly most of the time its a simple fix you just switch DVD Sound to Stero and your good to go. But again sadly you may come across hackers if you try to play online with GameRanger or start an online server.
Summary: I had never played any of the "call of Juarez" series, and bought them all in one day. I have been gaming since DOS ( yep, I am an OLD gamer ) and frankly did not expect this game, old by today's standards, to have such a fun value, and to have such great graphics. Not to crazy about the dialog, kinda repetitive, but still very exciting to play.
Summary: Ok i loved Bound in Blood so much that even despite the poorer reviews i bought this game. THe worst part are the car chases, there is no doubt about that. They are too hard and boring really. The selection of guns is great though, and some in game features are good. The storyline is blah, Bound in Blood dragged you along and this is like a NCIS episode of the most borning plots. The gun fights are good, tougher than the previous ones.
Nice story, characterization, graphics. Need to learn how to do "shootouts"

Summary: Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is a rare game set in the Wild West. As with the original Call of Juarez, the western settings can be breathtaking. The original had several glitches and frustrating parts - especially with regards to platforming. Luckily the sequel has very little jumping and platforming puzzles. Instead, it has a slightly touchy and frustrating "shootout" mode. The setting of the Wild West is very welcome and rare.
Summary: This game is pretty awesome. I'm glad that there are game designers out there that have focused on making a great western FPS. There must be 30 world war 2 FPS games, it's nice to see something fresh. I feel like this game is an improvement over the first COJ. I felt like the first game was an oddity and didn't quite know what it wanted to be.
Summary: I was a big fan of the original "Call of Juarez" in spite of the fact that it was quite a linear game. Well its sequel is even more linear, much faster-paced, more action-packed, and the stealth missions are gone. These may be good things for most game-players, but I for one miss the more laid-back gameplay of the original. Some missions give you a choice as to which brother you want to play, which will affect your playing style and weapons.
3.5 stars to this highly underrated, very short game

Summary: I'm really not sure why there aren't more western themed video games, because the setting works very well with the medium. Case in point: Call of Juarez, a ridiculously fun (and disappointingly short) thrill ride through a mythical old west. PROS --Excellent story: There are so many games out there that treat stories as optional, and it's nice to see one that's put a lot of effort into creating a compelling narrative.
Summary: Call of Juarez is a very interesting game. Allows you to the play and work with other characters and places. I recommended for ages 16 to 70. I have played many times and always look forward to playing again. I love to play individually or as a group.
