3.0 out of 5 stars And still we miss Outlaws July 11, 2007
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
It's been how long now? And I still think Lucas Arts Outlaws was the best Western first Person Shooter. Since that time the Western genre has been oft ignored and only recently had an upswing, with games such as Gun, Dead Man's Hand, and Desperadoes I and II. Still, nothing has been truly memorable and the "Call of Juarez" is no different.

Story
The story line is nothing unusual. An out of luck kid (Billy Candle) gets blamed for something he didn't do, while a rentless Bible thumping Reverend Ray chases him. Meanwhile a sinister (not really) plot (not really) draws the two together time and again.

During the game players take control of Billy, who is on the run armed only with his abilities to hide, to use silent weapons, like the bow and arrow, climb things, and use a whip in the same style as Indiana Jones. Sorry, no hat included.

In a genuinely unique twist, players also take control of Reverend Ray and chase Billy down. The two perspectives to the same storyline is interesting, but sometimes I felt cheated as I had to go through the same map twice with each character. Ray is fun. No doubt he alone almost makes the game worth buying at full price. He is mean. He is old. He is quick on the draw and during the game you can have a Bible in one hand a sawed off shotgun in the other. Supposedly the use of the Bible stuns enemies, but I found it more useful just to shoot them, then read from the Bible for kicks. Ray however cannot climb things, and I suppose we'll just blame this on his advanced age.

Gameplay
Gameplay is fairly standard. Characters can lean to the side (a major plus), run and jump. Shooting is easy enough, though even the rifle is fired from the hip it seems. You never use iron sights, though with some weapons you can zoom in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun western game June 10, 2008
By Craig

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I agree with the reviewer who said this game is highly underrated. I almost didn't buy it but am so glad I did. The graphics are great, sound and music fit right in. The character development is terrific for a fps. Without spoiling any of the plot, the two main characters are very different and this keeps things interesting since the episodes interchange between them. Great story also. After a few episodes you begin to care about what happens to them and want to play to the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Underrated September 15, 2007
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The most underrated game this year. Excellent graphics. Fun gameplay. Very good story (as far as stories in video games are concerned). The writing and voice acting didn't suck, which is more than I can say for 95% of the games I've played.

5.0 out of 5 stars Call of Juarez October 17, 2011
By burnie
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I have to say that I have enjoyed playing this game. When I first purchased the game I was running it on a HP DC5700 SFF desktop with an added Zotac Ion graphics card and 3.5 GB of ram. The game actually ran alright on lower settings. When I tried to increase the video setting in the game, the game play seemed to lag more that I liked, but was still playable with some annoyance. I was impressed because my graphics card is not great for gaming and performed better than I expected. So if you don't have a gaming PC, you may still be able to enjoy this game.

I have recently built a gaming PC and I can say that this game performs flawlessly on my new system. I have the game on max settings and the game runs smooth with no issues.

I am only half way through the game and so far I enjoy the old west feel of the game. I also like how you change roles or characters through out the game. The story line is enjoyable and keeps you interested. The game is challenging enough for me and it is not so hard that I get frustrated and give up.

So overall I enjoy playing this game and would recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still waiting for that western masterpiece January 7, 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
A lot of games in the western genre have flirted with greatness without quite getting there. This is one of them. Call of Juarez is a fun FPS that throws a few twists into the mix but it is just shy of being great. You take the role of two characters, the Reverend Ray and Billy Candle. The reverend is chasing down Billy for a murder he thinks he committed. You get to play the cat and the mouse which is a fun twist. The cat, Reverend Ray, is a classic western gunslinger. He turns his enemies to swiss cheese with his trusty six shooters and sends them to the afterlife with quotes from his bible. Ray can enter 'concentration mode' that slows time and allows you make numerous head shots before the enemy knows what hit them. This does make things a little easy but it's a very cinematic experience and a lot of fun. The mouse, Billy Candle, is a sneaky kid who's good with a whip and a bow and arrow. His levels become rather tedious. They are mostly stealth missions that get old fast. Start at point A, sneak past an army of enemies, end at point B. If you are spotted you can't fight or run for it, you just fail the level. In order to stay hidden you must crouch by pressing and holding the Ctrl button with your pinky finger for long periods of time which becomes uncomfortable after a while. Adding stealth kills or stuns would have made those levels a lot more entertaining. He does have some interesting platforming levels that are kind of fun though. Playing both characters requires you to play through the same map more than once which may put some people off. The routes available and enemy placement are different for each so I didn't mind.
The story, music, and voice acting are top notch (except for Billy, his actor doesn't even try).

This game is completely lame. To compare it to Outlaws is a shame. Don't be fooled by the reviews that put this game in the same league. It ain't.
