Review: Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood

It turns out "Juarez" isn't Spanish for "duty."

It really does look like a good game. I'm probably going to rent it.

I have to say that the game looks good... but honestly, making a game called "Call of Duty" by replacing one of the words with something that means the same thing seems like... you might just be going out of your way for nothing. You could have just called it "Juarez: Bound in Blood" ... so that way when people find out Juarez means Duty, no one cares.

I must say the first Call of Juarez feeled a lot better than the second one, still the gameplay and story are good and it has a fine gamplay. If I'd have to choose btveed CoJ or COJ:BiN i would choose Call of Juraez the first one.

How would you compare it to the first Mr Deam? I didn't much care for it but I'm still interested in this, though I haven't seen anything to convince me to buy it yet.

This is one of the beast FPS ever !!!!
it has a great story,the engine is also very god,covering system is genius (better the in any other fps game),......
The duels are brilliant (perfect), I don't know what the f*** you are talking about in this video, I didn't have any problems (played on pc),enjoy every second of the game !!!

Congratulations to techland,they created a mind blowing game (for me the FPS of the year) !!!

if it doesn't works so great on konzole then play on the pc,konzols don't deserve this game !!!

Man I FULLY agree with you on the dueling point! Especially that guy you dueled with at the end of your video. I forgot who that was, a bodyguard or something? Well he was annoying as all hell. Took me 4 tries just to get it. Because when you are first to the draw you have an inherent urge to hammer the trigger because its just instinct but you go from down to top so you can actually draw first and fire first but you can still die >.>

Good review and congrats to Techland for the great game.

This is probably one of the biggest surprises for me this year. As a rule I give almost all Western games a shot, but I wasn't expecting much from this. To my surprise it's everything you said it is - decent to great gunplay, surprisingly likable characters and overall a real authentic Western atmosphere.

It's definitely worth checking out, especially considering Red Dead Redemption won't be out until next year.

That made me laugh so hard.

One question: does the game still have the option to holster one of your revolvers so you can use your free hand to fan the hammer? (outside of Concentration mode, that is). I loved doing that in small rooms against 2 or 3 enemies in the first one. Made you feel like Walker: Texas Ranger, it did.

I hope you're being sarcastic. Juarez doesn't mean duty in Spanish. Duty is "deber". Juarez is just a name. It means "Son of Juan". Essentially, it's Johnson. Call of Juarez refers to some event or time period (can't remember if it's real of fictitious). They mention it during the intro to the first game.

Are you trying to be funny or are you really that stupid?

Anyway, I'm annoyed that in almost every review I've read for this game they continuously neglect to even mention the phenomenal multilayer in it, which may be the best part about the game. The game modes range from old school shoot em' out deathmatch to robbing a bank and attempting to make off with the loot before the sherrifs get you. It's tons of fun and makes the game well worth the $50 (PC version). It doesn't make sense for everyone to ignore the multiplayer but they seem to anyway, oh well.

probably going to get this, but i dont know if itīs woth it, maby wait until it dorps a few bucks in price

It looks pretty good, definitely better than the first, which I hated, but I wouldn't say the concentration mode is original. In fact, it's blatantly ripped-off of another western, Red Dead Revolver.

Deam is what we like to call a city boy! But an interesting review for a the old west. We need more games based on history.

Um, what? A really poorly thought out shill for the developers of CoJ:BiB?

I mean to say, "what the hell did people think the creators would be getting away with?" Obviously if they did this, people would have found out, and they could have just as easily made it something NOT similar. I'm basically saying anyone who would think it meant "Call of Duty" is stupid.

Read previous send to other individual who actually knows how to disagree with something without sounding like a pompous prick.

Oh, if you're referring to the comment Jordan made on the original post, I suppose it was meant to be tongue-in-cheek.

Now if anyone actually thought the developers were trying to rip off the name of another franchise by replacing one word with its Spanish equivalent... well, SHAME ON THEM. No matter what your opinion of the devs is, no gruop of people can be that silly.

I'm personally hoping for an RTS set in the Crusades.

Wouldn't that involve a lot of sieging cities and surrendering stuff?

Now, a third person Crusades game that is better than Knights Templar (was that the name?), THAT's something I'd like to see. I look forward to kicking some Christian ass.

I strong heartedly recommend this game to all FPS fans..
Both story mode and multiplayer are great fun..
I've played tons of FPS's, and this game is a fresh breeze amongst them all..

I'd give it a 5 out of 6..

It got a good feel to it gameplay wise, shitloads better than Killzone 2..

I can see why the duelling can be annoying, but honestly you get the hang of it pretty quickly as the game progresses. I found that your opponent will almost always take 3 steps (sometimes 4) before drawing, and the music will sometimes hint at when they're about to draw (it'll go quiet just before the bell tolls - but not every time).

One of the things that I really liked about the game was that, despite having at least one cpu controlled ally accompanying you for most of the game, I found that they never get in the way, never need babysitting and will kill a few enemies but never so many that it feels like they're taking away your fun. There are too many games where allied cpu's are a major hinderance.

It is most definitly worth every penny, i promise you!

Thank you Stranger, i was afraid nobody was going to point that out. Painting targets, quick draw (time?). To paraphrase Chris Rock in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back; I think Rockstar is gonna sue somebody!

A very fine game, IMO. Its plot and its politics are in the stone age and the duels are rubbish, but other than that it's great. The dual-path structure makes for replay value, the vistas are often beautiful, and the gameplay is simple and compulsive.

Definitely a good game. Good story. Good voice acting. Hope there's a third one.

Strangely enough, no mention of the multiplayer...I haven't played that aspect of it yet, though.

I have to say that I love this game on the PS3, and the online play is great in my opinion.

It seems like a solid game, and I'll most likely get it once it drops in price.

But as mentioned above, the concentration mode and duels don't seem very original when compared to Red Dead Revolver.

having not played the first i was thinking about buying this one. although this has made me second guess my decision...

Played the first one and thought it was pretty good but for some reason I never actually finished it, I think I got distracted by another title released just after.

Might be a good idea to pick this up to break up Fight Night Round 4 and Battlefield 1943 a bit.

after watching this, i rented it and im currently trying it out. the cutscenes are slightly annoying, but the gameplay is pretty good. im reserving my final judgement until im done with it, although ill be avoiding the multiplayer

i think this game is amazing and you didnt even mention how original and fun the online gameplay is
