  • Summary: Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood transports players from a ravaged Civil War-era Georgia to the Aztec ruins of Mexico. In the wildest West ever depicted, players can embody both McCall brothers in an intense storyline full of greed, lust and lawlessness that takes place during a legendary period of American history. Become a Gunslinger - Harness a variety of weapons from various revolvers to heavy-caliber cannons and machine guns. Every accurate shot increases concentration, which allows players to unleash deadly shooting modes when outnumbered and even deadlier ones when the brothers work together. Dual Collaborative Gameplay - Players choose to embody Ray or Thomas, each with a distinctive gameplay style (close or long range), specific abilities (lasso, dynamite, etc.) and arsenal of deadly weapons (dual guns, long-range carbine, etc.). Take advantage of each of their strengths and join in the fiercest fights imaginable. Never Before Seen Western Experience - Experience the iconic settings full of outlaws - the West before it was tamed. The McCall brothers face a renegade Apache Chief, a greedy Mexican bandit, a vindictive Colonel, and others, all driven by greed with moral disregard. Enjoy a wide variety of situations, using horses, canoes and wagons to explore the vast natural landscapes of the fabled Wild West and its legendary period. Innovative Online Multiplayer - Developed in unison with the single player mode, multiplayer offers numerous modes and maps, resulting in endless hours of Wild West mayhem. Gunslingers, bandits and marshals struggle online for the bounty. Multiple characters are unlocked for team-based objective modes or the straightforward team death match. With a new Bounty system, players increase the bounty on their head with more kills. Get rid of the deadliest among you to increase your bank roll. [Ubisoft] Expand

    Outstanding western-shooter, whose love for details, brilliant graphics and great variety make it an instant hit.
  2. It's hard to pick out any particular aspect of the game and call it outstanding, but everything in the game just comes together nicely for a fun overall experience. Recommended for most gamers except for bowler-wearing city slickers.
  3. Bound in Blood is gritty, violent and frantic. A must have for western movies fans, and a videogame with amazing gunfights and eye-catching graphics.
  4. All in all, the campaign has plenty of solid action, but the lack of variety in objectives causes the gameplay to wear thin after a while.
  5. An amazing experience. This is a game which I will remember for a long time. Not particularly for the game play, but for the truly immersive atmosphere and enticing story.
  6. Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood represents a big step forward on many issues in comparison to the previous episode. It is not a top-class FPS overall, but it certainly has interesting characters and a nice atmosphere. Yet it could’ve been much better… In fact it suffers a few glitches and rigid gameplay.
  7. Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood isn’t a terrible game. On the contrary, it’s a game with a ton of unrealized potential that executes with the grain.

    Decent game pretty solid. Decent storyline, awesome graphics, very addictive. I quite liked the unique cover system felt totally different to alot of other FPS titles. This game is defiantly worth getting, it was released 09 and still in 11' it still feels like a brand new game. Expand

    its a good western but at some points feels average but some gameplay concepts such as bullettime and horse riding is cool but few free roam sequences far are few and far between. the story pretty good. Expand

    Its third act is quite a letdown and some of its gameplay elements are inherently forgettable, but "Call Of Juarez: Blood In Blodd" still adds up to a mostly enjoyable western game. Expand

    Game is a lot better than it's predecessor and as a western style game is good fun. It runs a better storyline than gun but the game play in that is smoother, I would recommend red dead or call of juarez gunslinger from xbox arcade before this game, but if you are specifically looking for a western genre you may have a bit of fun with this title.
