Gdyby Call of Juarez: Więzy Krwi był filmem, dostałby co najmniej cztery Oscar’y – za wspaniały scenariusz, muzykę, boskie scenografie oraz doskonałe zdjęcia!

Selten hat mich ein Action-Spiel so überrascht. Gerade erst fl immerte der Abspann von Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood über meinen Monitor und trotzdem möchte ich es sofort erneut durchspielen. Warum? Weil die Hintergrundgeschichte spannend inszeniert ist, obwohl Ego-Shooter normalerweise nur aus Laufen und Ballern bestehen. Weil Grafik, Physik und Sound praktisch zu jeder Zeit voll überzeugen. Weil sich die Schauplätze abwechslungsreich und detailliert präsentieren, egal ob Gebirgszüge, Seen, Wüsten, Goldgräber- oder Geisterstädte. Und weil mir die beiden ewig grimmigen Protagonisten, die individuelle Fertigkeiten besitzen, überaus sympathisch sind. Wer war noch mal dieser John Wayne? Meine neuen Wildwest-Helden heißen Thomas und Ray McCall.

But those are the only real problems that I had with the game, which says a lot about the overall quality of the title. It took me about seven hours to beat the game and I'd have to say I was thoroughly engaged about 90% of the time. 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.

We have no doubt that Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is set to be the hit of the summer, it offers a great single player experience and this will also be backed up by a fantastic multiplayer mode. If you love your shooters then you better get ready for one hell of a showdown.

Frankly the western has always been under represented in the current generation of video games. I mean World War II has sixty five thousand titles per year released and maybe one a year we get a video game from the Old West. Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is a fantastic addition to any library and a must own (or at least must play) for anyone with a soft spot in their heart for the old Clint Eastwood/John Wayne westerns like mine. At the end of the day this is a slightly repetitive game that provides some serious fun and a very good story right out of western lore.

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. Fans of the original Call of Juarez should also be quite pleased, since Bound in Blood’s story provides insight into Reverend Ray’s past while improving upon almost every aspect of the previous title. So, if you’re a fan of the previous game, the Western theme, or are just looking for an alternative to killing aliens with space marines, be sure to give Bound in Blood a try.

Ich bin gleichzeitig von den Socken und zu Tränen gerührt! Dieses Trio! Ray, Thomas und William sind einfach zum Niederknien großartig eingefangen. Eine derartig gute Geschichte hat nicht mal der exzellente Vorgänger Call of Juarez erzählt. Dadurch werden die Schießereien, die Verfolgungsjagden, die lässigen Duelle fast zum Beiwerk. Allerdings zum sehr guten Beiwerk, denn Bound in Blood präsentiert das alles in schönen Variationen, Langweile kommt da nicht auf.Wer eine grandiose Story und einen abwechslungsreichen (wenn auch linearen) Shooter in Einem sucht, ist hier richtig.

Being in the fairly unexploited western genre, Juarez sticks out from the stale pack of run of the mill games taking place in a generic fantasy setting or some global conflict. Combining a compelling tale of revenge with well executed stop-n-pop gunplay makes Bound in Blood a game that I can safely recommend to most gamers. At $60, it is a rather competent package, but don't expect to be playing this game for months to come.

I love this setting so much Jung and you really warm to the game over time. Multiplayer is class based, and just awesomeeeee. Assuming the game can actually be played past our crash point, I’m giving it 8.5/10. I really want to finish this Jung, it’s a good story and it feels like there’s going to be a big redemtion ending but I dunno...

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood on vihdoin onnistunut länkkäripeli ja pikkuvioistaan huolimatta raikas tuulahdus ainaisille scifi- ja WW2-räiskinnöille. Aivan täydellinen kultakimpale peli ei kuitenkaan vieläkään ole, mutta kyseessä on silti yksi vuoden positiivisimmista yllättäjistä.

The soundtrack adroitly combines modern notes with the signature sounds of Old West soundtracks; Morricone flutes and trumpets loft above chugging electric guitars, and you think, "Certainly the barrenness of the Western landscape is a fitting metaphor of the human condition." Then you kill an entire town, and it feels great.

Call of Juarez - Bound in Blood ist eigentlich viel mehr als ein Western-Shooter. Es ist wie ein gutes Buch, das man unbedingt zu Ende lesen will. Die miserable Synchronisation wird seinen scharf gezeichneten Charakteren allerdings nicht gerecht. Hier hätte Ubisoft „eine handvoll Dollar“ für gute Sprecher investieren sollen. Und "gutes Buch" heißt nicht "perfekt Logik": William, der kleine Bruder der McCalls springt schon einmal dazwischen, wenn wir einen Oberboss killen: "Oh nein", ereifert er sich, seine Bibel aufschlagend, "ihr missachtet das 5. Gebot.“ Wohlgemerkt, dass wir direkt vorher ein gutes Dutzend Soldaten erschossen haben, hat ihn nicht gestört. Auch die KI überzeugt nicht immer.

Bound in Blood is a much more enjoyable experience than the first Juarez. It lacks some of the whimsy (such as Ray massacring whole towns while quoting scripture) in favour of focusing on the shooting, but it's a good trade. As for other games, it's far more satisfying than previous westerns like Gun and Red Dead Revolver, even if its set-pieces never quite make it to the Modern Warfare high benchmark.

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is op alle vlakken beter dan zijn voorganger. Het is een uitstekende game binnen haar genre en setting, en het is daarom ook een aanrader voor iedere gamer die ook maar een beetje variatie zoekt in het first person shooter genre.

The Western spirit has never been an easy one to get right, but Call Of Juarez: Bound In Blood manages to capture it in spades, and with superior story and fun combat. Elevated by the sheer quality of its presentation, we were hooked to the tragic end.

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is an unexpected gem that gives players a unique, exciting and thorough experience. By improving on the original’s faults, Bound in Blood has become a title that can be experienced by all. Sure, it has its fair share of problems but for a title that wasn’t on most people’s radars, Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood comes highly recommended.

Bound in Blood is an extremely polished version of what the first game should have been in the first place. It does nothing new, but it earns a few brownie points in the hearts of western fans for simply existing. Simply taken as a shooter, however, it’s still a mighty fine one, featuring enough variety to make it worth playing. Unfortunately, the multiplayer is barely worth mentioning - it’s there, but features none of the attention to detail or writing that makes the campaign so enjoyable. Still, with two characters and a fairly lengthy story, Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is a great game for fans of westerns and fans of shooters alike.

And that film comparison is apt, because this game's strong narrative and high production values make it an almost cinematic experience. Add to that its exciting gameplay, and Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood becomes the ideal sequel--one that is an improvement over the original in almost every way. Though the game is marred by its short length and weak enemy AI, those looking for a fun and different shooter experience shouldn't have any hesitation about biting the bullet and taking a ride with the McCalls.

Whilst it doesn’t break any new ground in an industry that is often beset by shooters, it does one thing that I wish more games would. It plays in a rewarding manner and it’s actually worth finishing the story, it will take gamers around 7 hours or so if they blast through it and around 10 or more hours if they want to unlock the secrets hidden away in the game’s various levels. It’s also not a World War 2 shooter and that counts for something in my book, since gaming is packed to the teeth with those and we could do with some more Bound in Blood style games.

The entire package emerges as greater than the sum of its parts, and becomes a game that is just on the brink of greatness, but stumbles. That doesn't mean it isn't worth your time, though. Especially, in the dull summer months, Bound in Blood will more than serve to tide you over until the holiday release onslaught if it's an FPS fix you're craving.

Bound in Blood is one of those rare games that you'll remember more for what it did right than the many ways it fell short of the mark. There's a slight awkwardness to the gameplay experience that's forgivable thanks to engaging characters and an addictive storyline, which build an adventure that's more than worthy of the Wild West genre.

Thematically the game succeeds with aplomb, the story line works well, the co-op and alternative routes through sections with your brother never feel forced and there’s some welcome appearances of both characters and plot twists during the campaign. There’s lots to like here, presentation is great, the game runs smooth enough (there’s some slowdown and tearing, though) and for once it’s a multiformat game where the PS3 version doesn’t seem to suffer particularly badly. If you were looking for a Western FPS to cure an overdose of bald space marines with ridiculous guns, this is the perfect tonic.

Abusa de estereotipos, los lleva al máximo, nos mantiene en un mundo de incorrección política, y nos muestra unos entornos duros donde la vida no vale nada: el Lejano Oeste del cine y de la literatura penetra en Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood, se hace videojuego, y sigue siendo reconocible en todos sus elementos sin rechazar la espectacularidad del medio en el que estamos. Es un juego de acción en primera persona con una fuerte personalidad en su desarrollo y en su planteamiento y eso, en un ámbito cada vez más saturado de juegos de esta clase, todos ellos clónicos, es de agradecer. Con un sabor único, Bound in Blood se presenta fresco e intenso, algo que suple sobradamente las carencias que le hemos encontrado en otros puntos.

Whether you’re playing alone or multiplayer, the game isn’t the most polished action experience, but that’s not the reason to get excited about Bound in Blood. Look to the gorgeous locales, the spot-on tone of your favorite dusty old Western movie, and the chance to sling a six-shooter with the best of them.

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood isn’t the perfect Wild West adventure, but it does embody the spirit of the era with a suitable amount of style. Not only does it look fantastic, but the gameplay is exciting, the controls are smooth, and there are plenty of dramatic moments to experience and frantic shoot-outs to enjoy. Inevitably, it’s a game that will appeal to anyone who is fascinated with the Wild West. If that’s you, grab your Stetson and pick up a six shooter, and we’ll see you down at the OK Coral.

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is a great realisation of the western genre both in single player and online in multiplayer. It truly is an authentic western experience that builds on the foundations of its predecessor and will be lapped up by western fans worldwide. If it wasn't for its lack of single player longevity and its few technical hang ups, some of which hamper the gameplay, the game would easily be shooting in the 80's.

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is absolutely worth a look, especially considering the fact that July and August are looking pretty thin in terms of high-profile releases. It’s not long and it’s not the best shooter you’ll play in 2009, but it uses several unique concepts, presents us with a very enjoyable atmosphere, and remains mostly entertaining throughout. It just needed a bit more polish and refinement with the controls for us to wholeheartedly recommend it.

As a prequel, Bound in Blood does a good job of presenting the characters, their storylines and what eventually leads back into the franchise history. It also packs in a ton of fast action, loads of explosions and a heavy dose of duels against opponents that want to take you to Boot Hill. Unfortunately, the repetitive nature of the missions, coupled with some technical issues, really keeps this title from standing out more.

Though, even with these sloppy glitches, Bound in Blood is still, overall, a solid rollercoaster-disguised-as-FPS ride with Western trappings. Maybe I'm just a sucker for games featuring ornery old men gunning down fools, but he fact that it's a competent game in the Western genre is something to congratulate it for, and I'm hoping that for future games, Techland continues to improve as a developer. Perhaps it will finally hit the "Man With No Name Game" status with Call of Juarez 4 or something.

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood zet een prima westernsfeer neer en biedt genoeg actie om de speler geboeid te houden. De game is misschien niet baanbrekend, het is jammer dat de co-op ontbreekt en hier en daar komen bepaalde scripted events niet helemaal lekker uit de verf. Gelukkig maken de vele verschillende vuurgevechten en actievolle scènes dat meer dan goed. Yee ha!

Despite its few issues - including some pretty severe tearing - Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood manages to be a thoroughly well executed and polished prequel that pushes all the right buttons. A dynamic cover system makes shootouts enjoyably tactical and the action remains quick and consistent throughout. What's more, it's a massive improvement over the comparatively rough first game, especially where the visuals are concerned. Gorgeous, grand yet inaccessible vistas stretching far into the distance may have us pining for the freedom of the forthcoming Red Dead Redemption, but Bound in Blood will more than satisfy your yearnings for a Western-flavoured yarn and as such is a more than deserving candidate for your gold doubloons.

After stumbling through the campaign and enjoying some matches online, it's possible to see where the momentum came from to make this sequel. Though the Wild West may not be filled with flashy gadgets or big-boom weaponry, the setting is a brilliant change of pace for first-person shooters. It may have its hiccups with some technical and mechanical faults, but Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood shows that shooters don't need the above, and can thrive with a well-written script and thoughtfully paced action.

I’m not sure what was in the peace pipe they were smoking when they decided to make this sequel. Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is a story about three brothers, two of which are on a quest for treasure, adventure, and anything else they can do to make sure the story is as “wild west cliche” as possible. Don’t get me wrong, the game had some pretty good ideas wrapped up in there somewhere. Stunning graphics, responsive and tight controls, and decent voice acting all make this game a rent, but certainly not worth your pesos.

Even if you don't cotton to the multiplayer component, Bound in Blood is an entertaining tale of greed, betrayal, and bloodshed in the Wild West. It's rare that a first-person shooter's best quality is its story and while that might be a bit of a backhanded compliment, the fact is that Techland delivered an experience comparable to the Western films that the development team obviously adore.

Опаленная солнцем пустыня и лесистые горные склоны, сонные города и заброшенные шахты — как и три года назад, Call of Juarez поражает масштабами. Не выпуская нас за жесткие рамки сценария и не претендуя на технологичность, игра, тем не менее, поддерживает иллюзию огромного мира. Вблизи видны дурные текстуры, неряшливые модели и возникающие из эфира объекты (цена оптимизации!), однако атмосферу они не гробят. Мчаться на лошади, расстреливая гадов из лука, картинно палить из револьверов с обеих рук, победить на дуэли, одолев и соперника, и корявое управление, — вот в чем радость.

The bottom line is that Bound in Blood wisely sticks to the formula. But for all the good that does it also forces the game to live in the shadow of its predecessor. This is an entertaining shooter with many good points, but nothing's particularly outstanding or original here. Members of the Old West FPS posse should snap it up faster than Doc Holliday could clear leather, but city-slicker varmints oughta just wait till it hits the bargain bin at the local general store.

There are good things and bad things with Call of Juarez, like many games. The graphics are gorgeous and so are the many effects that help suck you into the game, the story whilst a bit cliched holds together well and conveys a coherent and entertaining story. On the other hand as a first person shooter there are some serious problems, movement is too slow the guns are terrible and take ages to reload and one of the two characters feels a bit redundant. Also, for a game which has two main characters who are almost always together throughout the game to not have co-operative play is criminal. The game is fun but has it’s issues, worth playing and worth finishing I would recommend it to people who live westerns and are looking for a really good western game, but I would not really recommend it to people who want a good first person shooter.

Il faut bien avoir en tête que le jeu est loin d’être parfait au niveau de la réalisation. Si la présentation générale est flatteuse on constate tout de suite quelques lacunes lorsqu’on avance dans le jeu. Certains peuvent aussi reprocher une campagne un peu courte (entre 6 et 8h) mais ne boudons pas notre plaisir, les jeux de western sont tellement rares ! Passé cela, on s’amuse malgré tout à évoluer dans ces décors mythiques, au rythme des détonations des colts et des winchester qui nous rappellent toujours des bons moments de cinéma. D’autant plus que l’histoire à tous les ingrédients d’un bon western spaghetti.

Bound in Blood is certainly an improvement on the first Call of Juarez. Its impressive visuals and smooth gameplay are let down by repetitive levels and an uninspiring story, however, and the online multiplayer just isn’t good enough to compensate. The Western twist is the only real reason to buy Bound in Blood over other First Person Shooters out there, and the aspects of the game that are done well, others, unfortunately, do them better.

All told, Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood makes for a good diversion. It doesn't last too long, tells a decent story, and offers enough multiplayer to give you something to mess around with when the single-player's done. It certainly isn't the most ambitious game in the world, but if you're looking for a competent western shooter, Juarez fits the bill just fine.
