Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is a prequel to the original, that follows Ray McCall and his brother Thomas as they cause havoc across the Old West, whilst keeping an eye out for any treasure no matter how great or small that comes across their path.
Comet are currently parting with copies of the game on the 360 and PS3 for £4.99, which'll make you a saving of almost £6 on the next best deal of £10.89 from Sendit on both formats. Unfortunately, you'll have to pay for home delivery but reserving the game in store for collection is free.

The first game irritated me beyond belief faster than any game I've played before or since, and I'm pretty sure I turned it off within 10 minutes or so. Luckily, this instalment isn't anywhere near as frustrating and offers a fairly enjoyable experience.
At the start of the majority of the levels, you'll be given a choice as to which brother you want to play as, and this choice'll be largely dependent on your gaming preferences. As Ray, you'll be able to charge head first into a gunfight, blasting away with your pistols at a distance, or destroying your enemies with your trusty shotgun for close encounters. Thomas, on the other hand, should appeal to your stealth needs, craftily wielding knives and bows for quick, silent takedowns.
Duels can be a tricky thing to get the hang of and you'll get tired of dying for making the smallest mistake. Once they're initiated you have to keep your opponent in the centre of the screen by moving around the dusty circle, and when the bell rings you'll have one precious shot to make your opponent regret challenging you.
The game's nowhere near as good as Red Dead Redemption, in fact they're not even in the same class, however it's definitely worth a punt for under £5.
