Bad graphics and bad controls

Summary: Luckily I only paid $5 from the digital download. The controls are horrid and non responsive even with a top of the line gaming mouse. Graphics are choppy and seems to have more of shows than game play.
Summary: I found this shooter to be a bit of a surprise. The graphics are amazing and cinematic.. The story line is captivating although the cut scenes can be a bit lengthy. Overall however this is one of the funnest games I've ever played. I'm real big on FPS and was getting a little tired of the same old "bombout citys" or "war torn battlefields'...
Awesome Western Shoot-outs make an appearance in this great game

Excerpt: "CALL OF JUAREZ: BOUND IN BLOOD is a first-person shooter based in Western America. It is created by TechLand, published by Ubisoft and uses TechLands own ‘Chrome Engine 4’ for its graphical engine. ==Story== Following the military burning down the family house, the two brothers, and their other slightly paranoid brother set out to look for a sacred, supposedly cursed treasure that could help them rebuild their home and settle back down. Until such ...
Pros: Great graphics, brilliant gameplay, good fun to play
Conclusion: The game play offers some new mechanics. First off, before any level you will have the to choose which character to play from the Brother's McCall. Thomas, which is an agile cowboy, with great rifle aim, sniping skills, stealthy and able to use silent knifes and bow and arrows, apart from a funky lasso which will allow you to reach high places and climb.
Conclusion: As a secret western fan I was looking forward to this game with baited breath, but to date not much has been done in the PC gaming world that really brings this era of our culture to the realistic forefront. I can safely say that this game captures the look and feel of the 'old west'.
Conclusion: What a shame! This game could have been great. It looks good, It is one of a very few cowboy games ever made. The story isn't too bad. Whats not to like? Well I'll tell you. The frikkin quicktime auto target mode that pops up every so often and really screws the game up. I'm playing this on a PC not an XBOX or PS3 for gods sake.
Conclusion: Sure the graphics are better but the playability is not as good as the first Call of Juarez game. The level are quite short and there are a lot of long cut scenes. However, by far the most annoying part of this game is the duelling. That the end of each level there is a duel where all you have to do it move the mouse and fire, but you must time it perfectly. Therefore, you spend about 10 boring attempts just to get past this useless feature!
Conclusion: I must say when I spotted this title sometime in June I just had to have it. A FPS that is not futureristic or based on WWII really appealed to me. So I re-ordered through Play.com and it arrived one day after the release date, good job guys.
