    Outstanding western-shooter, whose love for details, brilliant graphics and great variety make it an instant hit.
  2. Call of Juarez: Bound In Blood has quickly become my favorite game of 2009, and with future DLC on its way, it’s not going back on the shelf anytime soon.
  3. It's a great shooter, with a fantastic rendition of the old west that really adds a lot of character to the game overall.
  4. From start to finish, the single player campaign of Bound in Blood definitely provides one of the most memorable FPS gaming experiences of the year.
  5. 90
    It was 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.

    Bound in Blood has a lot to offer. Great, fun gameplay mixed with likeable characters, an unpredictable plot-twisting storyline and jaw dropping visuals makes up for a high-quality title.
  7. Call of Juarez Bound in Blood has one of the best Western FPS games period with one of the grittiest story lines this side of a Clint Eastwood movie. With its solid graphics and audio mixed with the outstanding gameplay this is one of the best action games for the hot summer nights.
  8. The game may not be long but what it lacks here it makes up for in quality. A soild and enjoyable shooter which everyone should experience.
  9. If you are after just the single player experience then you could easily complete this game in a matter of hours; but those hours are thoroughly enjoyable ones.
  10. If you’ve been waiting for a great Western-themed shooter, then look no further than Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood. The gameplay is fun and varied, the story is entertaining, the visuals are well done, the voice acting is terrific, and the game even sports a respectable online offering.
  11. 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.
  12. The McCall brothers are back in action in this Call of Juarez prequel. The game is an absolutely good looking representation of the American Civil War period and gameplay is pretty solid and fresh. Tons of weapons and good multiplayer action bring you into the wild wild west!

    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 inGame 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.
