Disappointing

  • Summary: CALL OF JUAREZ BOUND IN BLOOD (BiB) was great fun, had a logical story and flow of events, was difficult at times but never to the point that you wanted to punch out your monitor. This game is a clunker in comparison. As in BiB you play as 2 characters: Ray (the gunman) and Billy (the indian kid). After slaughtering a few dozen bad guys (as Ray), you switch to the Billy character.

A Good Buy

  • Summary: Good, not great little game. I say "little" because it's short and sparse. No real side missions or tasks to speak of. Best parts: The guns, the feel of them is powerful and the sound of them is as close to an old Western movie that you're going to find. They're pretty cool. The graphics are pretty good. The showdowns are fun, if not really that challenging. The character Reverend Ray is pretty cool, in a grim creepy way.

  • Summary: I made the mistake of going into this game with high hopes after having a blast with a previous western game called Gun, which I was promised this game was very similar to. It isn't by miles, but that's not to say it isn't good. The gunplay is fast and responsive, and best of all fun. You play as either of two brothers who each have a seperate style of play. While not that different, it's still enough to consider them individuals.

Some good, some bad, some ugly

Ryan Agadoni, Amazon

  • Summary: This review is very late in the game, but with the sequel coming out soon, I figured I'd weigh in. Call of Juarez is a Western-themed first-person shooter that was actually released back in 2006 in Europe. (For some reason it took the publisher an extra year to release it in the US.) I had been excited about the game since early 2005 when I first heard about it.

Wanted dead or alive

NeoJ, MobyGames

  • Conclusion: If you like spaghetti western this is your game, if you just want to play a FPS, there are many other games of this genre which are really much better than this. Anyway, it's not the worst of them all.
  • Pros: Call of Juarez has many nice things. The western ambient is really good, especially at the beginning. The physics are perfect, you'll see your enemies falling from buildings, roofs and many other places breaking wooden things like in the movies. You can also take many objects of the stage like boxes to access other areas or just to find some hidden secrets.
  • Cons: When you start there's a really good sensation of western movie, but it breaks up when the game really starts (when the action starts). It's a pity because that was a good sensation. At the beginning there are lots of details, many objects and stages are full of things but when you continue the game, stages become more simple, with less objects and details.

Short, Repetitive, but Relatively Fun

Lisa Shea "be the change you wish to see in t..., Amazon
1 November 2007
  • Summary: Call of Juarez joins other Western themed games in immersing you in shoot-outs, cacti, wood fences and tumbleweeds. You switch between the characters of Billy - the young half-Mexican lad, and Ray, his uncle, a gunslinger who is out to kill him. The conflict is that Billy, coming home after several years of roaming, finds his mother and abusive stepfather are dead. Ray thinks Billy has done the deed.

Shoot 'em Up!

Jeff, rakuten
14 July 2007
  • Summary: I was slightly disappointed in the graphics on this game but the overall play is ok. I look forward to the strategy guide coming out as I am not the greatest at sneaking through the streets of Juarez as Billy gets shot/killed quite alot. If you enjoyed Gun...you might like this game as well.

Good, but a miss.

C. Kincaid "Slimer", Amazon
8 July 2007
  • Summary: This game is definitely the best western game out there... but thats not saying much. The game is very linear, and the gameplay is a little bland. The character models are beautiful, but some of the environments leave a little to the imagination. The best part of the game is easily the concentration draw, but you have very little control over where the cursors move. A lot could have been done to make this game better, but all in all its still pretty good.
