Call of Juarez is a hidden gem

OSA: Call of Juarez Bound in Blood had always been on my radar, but upon receiving my copy of RDR I wanted to get into it before RDR ruined all western games as we know them. So I went down to gamestop and plucked it out of the bargain bin

If you've yet to experience Call of Juarez BiB due to the hype and greatness of RDR you should do yourself a favor and run to your nearest game store and pick this up for a some cheap fun

59.99 would have been a bit steep for a more linear western game with a few fun hours of multiplayer mixed in but at 19.99 this game is well worth the price of admission

I loved the Original but I couldn't get into Bound in Blood

Hated Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood. Horrible shooter, horrible cover system, crap story, crap characters, just not fun. I played through the first level, filled with soldiers throwing tons of freaking dynamite all over the place, representing the bazookas of the civil war it seems, in hopes it would get better... but it never did. AI was the worst part, with them tracking you through any and everything, including through tons of foliage you couldn't see through to who was shooting you.

The one thing I did like about the game were the graphics. Hiding behind a tree and seeing, up close, insects crawling over the tree and similar details were very well handled in the game.

I played the original. Very creative and I really liked the old man that carried the Bible, quoting scripture to distract the enemies. Absolute must buy since it is likely very cheap now.

It's a great game by all means and 20 bucks for a new game is a steal.

The game skanked me of 1 trophy lol, i completed it but never got the trophy to say i hav completed it, i replayed the last level a dozen times but never got it

Online was really bad but half of that was because there wasnt many players ever online

I didnt like the girlie endin either but overall it was a good game 1 of my better rental choices

Call of Juarez 1 & 2 are both pretty fun games.

I admire the author for thinking differently than most people out there.

Video Game Music Spotlight #1: The Old West

VGChartz's Taneli Palola: "Each of these articles will be centered around a specific theme, whether that's a style of music, a specific console, or just something completely different. Also, at the end of each of these articles, I will pose a video game music related question on something usually related to the theme of the article, which you can answer in the comments below if you so wish. Each article will highlight between five and ten different tracks from various games, in no particular order.

With that in mind, let's start with a theme that's quite timely and relevant right now thanks to the recent release of Red Dead Redemption 2. The American old west has inspired countless different video games and produced some amazing pieces of music over the years, so let's have a listen to just a few such tracks."
