Ray's voice is fantastic, fun gun duels, bow hunting
Platforming is broken, unbalanced gameplay
"Despite a vastly successful century of classic western films and then the spaghetti resurrections native to the 1960s, game developers have been visibly resistant in translating John Wayne and Charles Bronson to the digital realm, preferring instead to focus on more modern titles.

Based on a pure western atmosphere, the game draws on the major themes of the American Wild West through the confrontation of two powerful and iconic characters.Epic duels, train robbery, horseback riding across unending terrain, fights from horseback& All the ingredients of the best western movies are blended seamlessly together in Call of Juarez.Choose to play as either one of two stimulating characters: Billy, a young fugitive accused of murder, or the merciless vigilante hunting him down, the Reverend Ray, an ex-outlaw who turned to religion, believing that God Himself has chosen Ray to be the instrument of His wrath.Amidst the twists and turns of this absorbing psychological story aspect, players will also encounter a wide variety of gameplay features, with many differences between the stories of the characters.
