Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood Review

VideoGamer.com
19 March 2010
  • Excerpt: A really good wild west shooter seems like a pretty easy game to make. Considering you can wander into any video game store and buy a number of excellent war games or titles that pit you against invading aliens, a guy shooting a few enemies in run-down desert towns doesn't sound like a game design nightmare. Yet, it more or less has been.

  • Excerpt: Towards the end of the first Call of Juarez , the tormented Reverend Ray McCall breaks down and shares the details of his dark past in a touching load screen monologue. If you played the game and thought to yourselves: "Wow, they could have made a game based on that story," I'm happy to report that developer Techland has been on the same wavelength all along.

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood (PC) Review

  • Excerpt: of Western movies. The genre is slowly trickling away in film, but the amount of classic westerns is just staggering. It’s a different story for games, as I can’t even name more than two western games. We have GUN, an oft-forgotten free-roaming western, and Custer’s Revenge which is…well I’ll just let you look that one up. Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood fills this void with a different take on the genre, now seen through the popular first-person perspective.

  • Conclusion: If you are willing to cope with all of the game’s aggravations, the unlockable content may give you some perseverance to trudge on. You can unlock history to each character’s past as well as additional playable team members. Young players may feel some sense of achievement unlocking their favorite hero and the content is simple, yet cleverly acknowledges the Marvel legacy.

Review: Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood (PC)

Diehard GameFAN
30 November 2009
  • Summary: Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood suffers from some mishandled controls (they’re really not sloppy) and is lacking only in originality if you’ve inundated yourself with westerns most of your life. It is a solid, if short FPS, and even the multiplayer is a blast once you get registered. I found the story itself to be a bit lacking, but only because I know what happens to my favorite character in the first game.

  • Excerpt: Westerns are somewhat of a rarity in the gaming community; ironic, considering their status as one of the most over-saturated genres in film history. While there are a few options, gamers have a surprisingly slim library to select from if they’re in the mood to pull the wagon train into a circle, so to speak.

  • Excerpt: While it lacks the "Bible-as-a-weapon" innovation found in the previous game, this prequel tale merges adequate gameplay with a plot good enough to keep you focused.

  • Excerpt: I’ve always felt that the Western was one of the most underappreciated genres in the gaming industry. With such legendary characters like Billy the Kid, and Wild Bill Hickock -- The infamous Wild, Wild West seems to be an untapped goldmine for gritty outlaws, tense storylines and awesome gun battles. And hey, as long as we’re licensing old movies; why not give us The Searchers? What about El Dorado?
