PC version has much better graphics in DX10 mode, and in DX9 mode plays much smoother than 360 version. PC version is better all round HisCok.

I agree this game was good, good script, voice acting, graphics where ok, performance was kinda bad sometime, and some parts where save/die/reload marathons. One of the few games I've played in years that I had fun beginning to end.

LOL

I got all the way to the end of the game and realized I'd never even used the bible once. I was having too much fun doing matrix crap with 2 pistols...

I'll use it on my second play through some time.

Default Re: My (late) review of Call of Juarez.

After beating Call of Juarez I moved on to Jade Empire, the other game I got cheap.

I played it for a few hours last night and I'm not really impressed. The characters and plot are pretty uninteresting. The character graphics and animations are also really bad, especially for a Bioware game. The overall gameplay just make it feel like a weak KOTOR mod. The dialog is long-winded too and nothing anyone says seems very interesting...

I'm hoping that it picks up, because the setting is unique and the world graphics have a nice style... but its just doing nothing for me so far. I found myself just playing it for something to do, I wasn't really enjoying it at all.

I really loved this game too. It's great cowboy fun. And when you're on horseback and you nail someone with an arrow through the neck, it's priceless.

I only wish there were MORE ANGRY BIBLE VERSES. I really loved having my Bible in one hand a gun in the other but because there were only like 3 verses using my Bible got boring

I never finished it. Last stage and I put it on hard and the last battle just kicked my ass

That's good to hear. I'll stick with it then.

I just wish the animations and faces in dialog weren't so painfully bad. They were good in KOTOR, but the ones in this game remind me of early 3D games from the late 90s with no emotions and hands clipping through faces in awkward poses with dialog that doesn't match. The voice actors also don't seem to fit the setting. I wish they would have had some kind of chinese accents.

Lots of small nitpicky complaints...

Lately I like almost every game better on 360 than pc becouse I got 360 and have to say I am very impressed with it, Been pc player like for 10years but console feels like simpley. Just sit and play.

As for CoJ. Passed it on pc and it was really cool. Firs really good western game since Outlaws.
