Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood's well executed story is probably the single most compelling reason to stick with the game all the way through. The game has plenty of positive things going for it, like varied environments and frantic gun fights. One sequence has you riding an elevator going down a cliff wall while enemies toss explosives down. At the same time, frustrating gameplay systems like the Dueling are a real turn-off. Additionally, riding across the wide empty spaces of the Mexican desert isn't exactly a fulfilling experience and it's hard to keep track of changing mission objectives when waves of enemies are coming at you.
Still, completing the single player game was worth suffering through its shortcomings, and the two characters offer different enough experiences to make replaying it an option worth considering
