If you're a fan of all things spaghetti western then Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood might just be the perfect game for you.
The Hut's price of £9.93 was already the cheapest by about a fiver, with the next best price coming in at £14.75 at Shop To, but if you take advantage of today's XBox deal then you can knock another pound off the price.
Don't forget today only you can add voucher code X10 to take the price down to an even tastier £8.94.
Bound in Blood is a prequel to the original Call of Juarez and tells of brothers and enemies, Ray and Thomas McCall, and their fall from grace as they left behind their lives as loyal confederate soldiers to become amoral bounty hunters. Those who have played the first title will remember Ray as a fire and brimstone preacher and anti-hero; Bound in Blood uncovers his journey to that point.
The game tells a deep and involving story against the ravaged backdrop of Civil War era America. The tone is pitched just right and Bound in Blood creates a great, authentic Western feel, rendered beautifully by excellent visuals and with the perfect soundtrack to match the mood. It's the ideal setting for exciting duels and shoot outs although the controls can occasionally feel a little awkward.
Bound in Blood is a very good but not quite great game. It's let down by dodgy AI and gameplay that eventually becomes tedious despite its short length. Nonetheless it is definitely worth a look as the fascinating story presented so beautifully provides a unique and exciting experience.Thanks to Rhys135 at Hotukdeals!
