Most fun I've had for a while. Even though the story isn't amazing, it still manages to keep you engaged and the way it's told is quite awesome xD. Loving the arcade style also.

Bound in blood is a great game actually, was honestly surprised at quality of first Call of Juarez and the second (Bound is blood) really took me by surprise how good it is, getting it with a 15$ copy of this game seems like a great deal

May be a fun game, I just don't want to play as Kid Rock.

Bound in Blood was a sleeper hit for me. I was so surprised how engaged I was with the story. Getting that for free along with this is simply a bonus. I had no interest in Cartel what so ever because of the change to the generic modern day bullshit that we get over an over again (recently anyway). I really want this to be at least good. I don't mind paying 15$ for a game that's good. From what I've seen so far I'm impressed. Now to just wait for release.

People always call a game awesome until it comes out and no one likes it.

These games tend to be pretty racist..

And I'm not too sure how I feel about the style change. Hmm..

This actually looks pretty cool, I only played bound in blood breifly but the controls were really tight, and the visuals were nice. Plus I actually quite like the direction this has taken with the stylised look. Cheap as hell and a free game to boot? Why would you say no...

Why can't they leave things well enough alone? Keep making these awful games that people don't buy into, can't they try to come up with something new or interesting?!

I think it's cool to see two games with big-budget AAA sensibilities like FC3 Blood Dragon and Call of Juarez willfully scale down and release digitally on the cheap. Most high-profile downloadable titles in the past few years have been defined by experimental gameplay and narrative, so it's nice to see a couple more traditional titles share that same space.

I remember the first Call of Juarez. When it was released on Pc it got a pretty bad score but I thought it was EPIC! 

"Billieeeeeeee!!!"


edit:  the cartoony style doesnt really attract me though  I like how the first CoJ looked

New trailer came out today on Techland's site.  A lot of fun.  And IGN showed the first 18 minutes of gameplay...  and I'm sold.   Now I officially want this game.  Long month until release.

I hope it's got those american civil war missions they were fucking mint. Only reason I played it online, just love being a confederate.

Whoever paid to play these games is an idiot. Literally no one likes these games yet they keep shitting them out like COD.

That's a bit of a kick in the teeth to console gamers. I'll still probably get this though (been a CoJ fan from the start) if the demo's any good, this and blood dragon. It's a good year for downloadable games

Wild west, than wild west and after this modern times in Cartel, now wild west. I think that techland should think about new IP or expand their horizons little bit.

I like the art style, looks like Borderlands in the wild west which got me thinking. Borderlands in the wild west would be awesome.

@annalex85 BIB MP is a mixed bag.  It's fast and looks great, but hit detection is kinda wonky.  Still, it can be quite fun.  I really hope Techland will release an MP COJ game in the GUNSLINGER style.

I saw Django Unchained a couple of days ago. It won't be as bad as that.

@lucfonzy It's cheap because it's a smaller downloadable game. It probably won't be as large as any of the other Call of Juarez titles.

@WTA2k5 I agree.  Actually, I think we're seeing the very beginnings of small serial games.  What do I mean?  Soon many AAA developers (and smaller devs) will release smaller games -- at a cheaper price -- with a continuing story -- like issues of a comic book series.  With downloadable games now looking as good as many physical releases, I'm sure this is coming...

@CriticalCritic get your facts right lot of people like playing this game was only three games made so far the first two was very good so get it  right don't run down a games just because you don't like it.

@CriticalCritic What are you on? There's only been 3 games since 2006. And while The Cartel was horrible, the previous two were great

@Karmazyn they went back to the wild west because modern didn't work. I'm happy for this. These games have always been about the awesome wild west style shootouts

@xhawk27 @BradBurns Well, there is nothing wrong with a little bit of making fun of each other as long as people don't base their sole opinions based on that prejudice. 

I don't mind people making fun of me or my ethnicity if done in jest. As a grown man, I can take a few jokes about these things without getting offended.

@Morphine_OD @Karmazyn yes but not Dead Island Riptide, more like Dead Island 2 or re-invented Dead Island 1, something re-fined new and fresh not necesserly the same dish served on a different plate.
