Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood Review

VideoGamer.com
2 January 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...

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood

Playstation Illustrated
23 December 2009
  • Excerpt: Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is a game of small details, both visually and gameplay-wise. There are a few noticeable problems, but the details make a big difference in the end. One of my biggest gripes with first-person shooters is characters rarely seem like part of the environment.

  • Conclusion: All in all, Bound in Blood is another solid title. Whilst there may not be anything spectacular about it, the game is an improvement over its predecessor in some respects with increased replayability, and an enhanced multiplayer system.

  • Summary: Brothers Ray and Thomas McCall solve most of their problems with six-shooters. Techland employs a similar tactic with Bound in Blood, wisely ditching the cumbersome stealth levels from the original in favor of more intense shootouts in the picturesque Western prairies, mountains, and ghost towns.

  • Excerpt: After the disappointing showing that Damnation made with me, I was a little put off on Western themed games. Thankfully I got over that long enough to review Call of Juarez, which puts the action back into the gunslinger genre.

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
19 July 2009
  • Excerpt: In the current generation there is probably no genre more crowded than the FPS. It takes a lot to stand out amongst such a heavily populated group of games, and while one way to stand out is to make a game of extreme quality, a rarely used setting can work as well.

  • Excerpt: In a game about war, blood, guns and obsession, it’s the few quiet moments that really stick. I recall the downtime in a small outpost outside the remains of a wild shootout, where I took a stroll down a dusty path suffocating in the dry heat of the setting sun.
