Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is the best Wild West game...

I gave the game the most accurate score that I can think of, but in my opinion you should not even bother reading it. Depending on your personality and the reason of why you actually want to buy this game, the final score will probably look either...

Western style shooters are a genre that is not touched upon very much in a sea of WWII and fictional shooters. For that reason alone, 2007’s Call of Juarez was instantly one of the greatest shooters I had ever played. Sure there was GUN and Red...

By Game Observer on 80

Like Gun and Red Dead Revolver, Call of Juarez is an average shooter that gets by almost entirely on the strengths of its historical setting. But at the least, Call of Juarez does a better job of playing to those strengths, and does so with more...

Its what the pack shot suggests - an honest paint-by-numbers shooter set in the Old West. The story might be over too soon, but the multiplayer will hold your attention for much longer. A definite improvement over the original Call of...

8 While the game itself is better than the original by far, the western aesthetic isnt as fresh as it once was. If youre not interested in the multiplayer then this game will probably feel short and...

The original Call of Juarez had to be played to be believed. An alternately awful and incredible mixture of poorly designed levels with an incredible attention to pacing, narrative, and character (for 50% of the game, you could literally recite...

In between certain levels you’ll be granted a bit of free roaming, which actually comes as a breath of fresh air from all the on-rails shooting. During this time you can earn money by apprehending outlaws or by umm... herding cattle. Money earned...

This game is definitely a nice change of pace from the standard World War II/sci-fi settings and until someone does it better, Bound in Blood is, in my opinion, the best Western-themed shooter around....

Having played and quite enjoyed the first Call of Juarez game, I was very excited for this upcoming title. Usually I’m not a huge fan of prequels. A game’s story has to be very intriguing or mysterious for a prequel to be warranted in my...

Games in the Wild West genre are few and far between, so Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is a breath of fresh air. When we were younger we dreamt of being outlaws so suffice to say weve enjoyed shooting cowboys in saloons and galloping on horseback...

Prequels are by definition concerned with looking at what has come beforehand, but Bound in Blood is anything but a backwards step. This game--a prequel to 2007s Call of Juarez--is a tense, riveting, and superb-looking first-person shooter that...

It's pretty fascinating how the Western, a truly American idea and mythos, can be so handily crafted by non-Americans. Besides hometown creators like John Ford and Cormac McCarthy, you also have great Westerns from foreigners like Italy's Sergio...

After apocalyptic future worlds, there can be few settings less original than the Old West. Chuck in a desert, some dueling and a few authentic guns and you have yourselves a game, right? Well Techland don’t subscribe to that – Bound in...

Verdict: This western-themed shooter has a surprising variety of action, but is a little let down by poor enemy AI. Set in the Wild West, Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is a straightforward first-person shooter. This prequel to the original Call of...

Bound in Blood on alkuperäisen Call of Juarezin esiosa. Siinä missä ensimmäinen peli käsitteli pastori-Rayn edesottamuksia, uusin taustoittaa Rayn seikkailuja ennen pastoriksi ryhtymistä. Luvassa on sekoilua,...
