The Game is ok but

The game is ok, but I actually liked the 1st Call Of Juarez better. Seems like the same old thing just rushed.

Rent it, don't buy it, unless you personally like it. If you rented it and are thinking of keeping it and haven't played the 1st one, then play that one before purchasing this one.

Short review: Graphics were good, characters were OK. Game play disappoints. No real consistent flow to the game, and I didn't really care for COJ's version of bullet time. Would have been cool if the game allowed the user to switch between the characters during the level instead of having to choose between the two. Overall the game is just OK, I was expecting for from the second iteration of this series. Oh well, now that Red Dead has been pushed back, maybe this Rockstar will have enough time to polish there series.

I'll keep it simple:
+ Nice looking graphics(textures, lighting draw distance and characters)
+ Good variety of missions
+ Good voice acting
+ OK story
+ Cool gun play mechanics (like the duel and slow-motion aiming)

- Sometimes enemies blend into the background
- Mediocre AI
- Little variety in setting (obviously)

All in all an entertaining but not great. Worth a rent if you are a fan of shooters or Western movies. Just don't expect too much.
