Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood - ZTGD Review

Jens writes: With sweeping, barren landscapes, the absence of law, and the struggles of powerful personalities, Westerns offer unique opportunities for storytelling, boiling down to essentials of right and wrong and self-determination in a void of civilization. They also serve as handy metaphors for the story of America – how a frontier of gun nuts with an inflated sense of self-entitlement became a nation of gun-nuts with an inflated sense of self-entitlement, but also with Big Gulps and Twitter.

(Just kidding, America. Happy 223rd!)

And so our anti-heroes, the brothers McCall push westward on a tide of blood in quest for gold and glory and sex with a spicy mamacita. After deserting from the Confederate army during Sherman's infamous march across Georgia, Thomas and Ray flee into the west, becoming outlaws and hired guns to earn a living. They fall in with the bandit Juarez, the villain from the first game, and clash with Apache, Comanche, banditos, sheriffs, and a Confederate officer who refuses to believe the war is over, all while searching for the titular Aztec treasure.

I didn't play the first and I don't plan to, but this game looks pretty entertaining.

Just for the record I've tried both the ps3 and 360 versions. My first impressions were that it is a great game both in terms of immersion and longevity. With that said the graphics and voice acting are superb. The online was quite enjoyable, with a few hickups now and then.. I'd recommend it to anyone suffering from the summer draught of gaming and is looking for a different kind of fps(different in terms of being set in an non-futuristic, modern or WW2 environment).

Did many people play online in the ps3 version????? If there is a decent amount i will get this game this weekend.

PC version of this game

I think this is one of the most satisfying western shooters to come out in a long time.

The game would be perfect if completely open world where the game lets you take jobs and etc...

I'm waiting for Red Dead Redemption to get some Old West action!

Agreed. I really want to buy Call of Juarez, but with Red Dead Redemption coming I'll definitely wait.
