Waiting for Call of Juarez Reviews!

Posted by linkforever1 (41 posts) -

I'm most likely only getting one game this summer and Call of Juarez is looking to be it.   I'm a little worried about the multiplayer and length of the single player campaign so I'm going to wait for a few reviews to roll in.  I was one of the few who really enjoyed the first and the second looks much better based on the gameplay videos.  I expect a ton of reviews to come out tomorrow but it would be nice if a few came up today.  The multiplayer modes look fun but I am worried about weapon/map variety as well.  I'm hoping it turns out!

Well the original was nothing to applaud, I enjoyed it but it was pretty bad in places, so I don't see why people are looking forward to this once, i'd say if you can only but one game this summer, i'd look elsewhere.

The first game was horrible.

@natetodamax:

It wasn't as bad as people seemed to make out, but it was pretty dire in places. The 360 version if I remember rightly was almost unplayable though.

@The_A_Drain: I have the 360 version and I never beat it.

@natetodamax:

Yeah I bought it after the PC version when it was super cheap, hoping to get some achieves, and I remember getting like 4 levels in and putting down the controller in disgust.

Sure the gameplay was nothing special, but I really enjoyed the story book style feel the game had to it.  The gameplay itself was pretty average and some didn't like the level design but for some reason the story/atmosphere of the game really pulled me in all the way until the end.

I enjoyed the gameplay/ story but my friend and i were playing it and we just kept getting lost or couldnt figure out where to go. Especally that part where you get a sniper and theres like a train. What the hell am i supposed to do! it didnt tell me anything. I also hated the dude with the whip, i hope they get rid of him.

@MistaSparkle: Billy Candle isn't in the sequel.

I loved the first game, I already have Bound in Blood preordered, I'm going to go into it blind.

I can see some parts of the first game not appealing to everyone though.

Have to say, the voice acting is just terribly lame and bad......and lame. Really shoddy and lacks any type of character. Very disappointed, one thing any Western game has to get right is the "feel" of it being, you know, a Western. And it fails on that front.

Maybe because it IS possible that a sequel could improve upon the original. It's been known to happen.

@PercyChuggs:

Sure it has, but you shouldn't expect it to happen like that, it doesn't happen that often.

@The_Dude_Abides: Based on the trailers it didn't seem that bad although it was a bit over the top. The first game had great voice acting as I recall so I doubt this one will stoop as low as you mentioned.

It's better then the first one in every way, and the first one isn't as bad as people make it out to be.

Good enjoyable game, I have yet to finish it yet, but what I've played so far is good fun.
