The only thing that would have made this game suck more was if the awful graphics actually broke my television or, for that matter, burned my retinas with its awfulness. The dialogue is amazingly stupid and insipid. Can you say Hispanic stereotype? The story is completely lame and therefore gives you no reason to continue. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a slave to the story. If a game is stylish, has decent graphics, and the gameplay is fluid and fun I don't much mind a slim story. Wet, I'm looking in your direction. The HUD and game interface seem to be the product of a high school programming competition. No, I take that back. If high-schoolers programmed the interface it would likely be better. While the first two Call of Juarez games were no Game of the Year contenders, I played through both and enjoyed them. This one is not worth one SECOND of your life or one PENNY of your money.
