Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Call of Juarez: Bound In Blood rolls out as a prequel to the moderately successful Call of Juarez, the first western themed title from Techland. The original was a mixture of fast paced gun fighting and stealth maneuvers. While the story was fantastic, the gameplay of the original title was terribly uneven. Switching between the two main characters, Billy Candle and Ray McCall, was entertaining, but felt far too forced.

Answer the call, but only if it's not using your peak daytime minutes

  • Conclusion: Why are the one-on-one showdowns so sloppy, random and loose?
  • Pros: The story and characters ring truly Western.
  • Cons: The action never heats up past a mild simmer.

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood

The Gamers Temple
11 September 2009
  • Excerpt: By Brad Russell Bound in Blood by Polish developer Techland is the prequel to the first Call of Juarez released in 2006. Very few first person shooters succeed in offering more than standard FPS fare. Bound in Blood goes the extra mile to deliver a real sense of atmosphere to go with solid shooting mechanics. Unfortunately, too often the game reminds you that it is a game with many wrinkles.

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood

True achievements
6 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Its certainly no Red Dead Redemption but its better than Gun or a lot of other shooters on the market and single player cheevos are easy enough to get! Multiplayer part of the game is very average and it seem a long time is required to get the $1000000 cheevo. Its a very wooden experience and suffers from averageness in every way! Overall its a decent game from a single player point of view but the multiplayer is very run of the mill!

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood (Xbox 360) Review

5 September 2009
  • Summary: Frankly the western has always been under represented in the current generation of video games. I mean World War II has sixty five thousand titles per year released and maybe one a year we get a video game from the Old West. Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is a fantastic addition to any library and a must own (or at least must play) for anyone with a soft spot in their heart for the old Clint Eastwood/John Wayne westerns like mine.

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood Review

VideoGamer.com
31 August 2009
  • 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: When Call of Juarez arrived on the Xbox 360 in 2007 many praised the game for its storyline and slick visuals; however, many also criticized the game for its performance issues and some lacklustre character modelling. Just over two years later a prequel arrives, aptly titled Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood, with little to no fanfare or hoopla.

A violent and profane Western game with sexual allusions.

Common Sense Media
28 August 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this Western-themed shooter is meant to be played only by mature players. It is laden with very strong profanity and crude sexual references, and the gunslinging violence, while perhaps not as graphic as that of some other shooters (there is blood, but no gore), is nearly non-stop. What’s more, the two playable characters are shady at best.

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood

Game Vortex
22 August 2009
  • Excerpt: When I first popped in Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood , I was immediately intrigued. It looked like Call of Duty , but in a Civil War setting, which then changes to a Western setting. Things look pretty good here, with dust blowing and enemies blending into the rocky background with their dusty clothes. Once you get to Mexico, things look even better whether you are fighting in a lovely old church or running from building to building.
