  1. If this game was released in 2011 why do the graphics look like it was developed 10 years ago?
    Seriously I know other video games from 2011 and their graphics look life-like.

  2. I really like the characters, except for Kim. But Ben and Eddie were badass. I liked the secret agendas thing and it's cool that this game has melee combat like the original Call of Juarez. Bound in Blood and Gunslinger have no melee combat at all.

  3. graphics story graphics story… is this what you called "gamers" care about anymore, If you care so much about a story and graphics watch a damn movie

  4. I have played all the CoJ Games on every Plattform. I loved it, it wasnt that bad as here said – cant understand, why people completely denied it…

  5. Who is this tosser reviewing this game? Who plays video games to "feel" or "care" about the characters? If I wanted real dialogue, I'd talk to my mum sitting next to me. I guess this guy would also complain about a washing machine simulator not doing enough revolutions per minute to be able to compare it to his own. – 10 year old nerd reading from daddy's knee before 'goodnight'. He should also learn how to pronounce 'Juarez' – It's not 'Horrez' – LOL

  6. dammit! I just bought this from the bargain bin and was really hoping this was going to be good but so far NO-ONE has given this game any positive reviews.

  7. i dont know who at techland thought it was a good idea to throw away the unique wild west time setting in favor of the most generic time setting of them all.

  8. This game is the worst game I've ever played. Luckily, it came in a cardboard wrap thing instead of plastic wrap, so after a few days of playing I could just slide it back in and take it back, pretending I bought the wrong game (Y)

  9. lol this sounds like what a call of duty review should be. bad multiplayer, boring story, repetative. check, check, and fucking check!

  10. I see what you mean. Since most modern military shooters are very similar to each other and usually have the same problems, it doesn't make much sense for a game that is pretty much of the same quality of another game in it's genre (which could go both ways) to get a drastically different score than the other.

  11. I find that it was much harder to play, because everything was different. The guns were different, the recoil, the hit multipliers, the leveling system was much different. So what you unlocked an iron sight? Most of the Tier One Special forces groups don't use an Iron sight. Also, you couldn't hipfire your way out of everything (I learned that the hard way) Also, people complain about how there's no cover. So what? Yeah the game had some cons, but in the end it was just forced by EA.

  12. I just finished this game. I actually really enjoyed it! It's certainly not the best game I have played, and it's nowhere near perfect. But I thought the gameplay was fun and I really enjoyed the story. There was just something about it that made me want to keep playing.
