Believe it or not, it seems we may have finally found the first great Western-based shooter. The original Call of Juarez didn't really cut the mustard, but the sequel is already bringing down some solid review scores. It's not capable of competing with the likes of Killzone 2, but hey, it's an entirely different setting. And besides, we've been waiting for a decent shooter based around the central "desperado" or cowboy theme for a long time, and Bound in Blood may be it. Here's another gameplay video that might coerce you into a purchase; if not, at least you should consider a rental. Really, this game just looks like a blast to play, plain and simple.
