  • Excerpt: Call of Juarez: The Cartel is an interesting attempt, but it doesn’t quite progress the series as much as it could have. Bright ideas fell flat due to polish and execution, but the cooperative play is worth checking out for those of you that love joining up with friends.
  • Pros: Interesting story, with great co-op incentives
  • Cons: Bad graphics, no likable characters

  • Excerpt: Some games just do not warrant a sequel. You would think that after the first two mediocre entries that they might call it quits. Instead they took a moderately underused premise in video games – a FPS based in the Civil War era – and abandoned it for the tired route of drug cartels. What you get is a wildly uneven experience with a surprisingly shallow story, excessive f-bombs and graphics that make some Wii games look good.

  • Excerpt: After successfully elevating the Call of Juarez name with 2009's Bound in Blood, the developers at Techland have taken a hard left turn, swapping stagecoaches for SUVs and a present-day drug war. Does Call of Juarez: The Cartel deliver on its promise of a new wild west or is it more of a creative ghost town? After a cop is killed by a Mexican drug cartel, the government forms a special task force to take the organization down.

  • Conclusion: I was interested in this next step for the Call of Juarez series, and I really think it could have worked; but good ideas can only do so much, solid execution must also prevail, and that just didn't happen with The Cartel.

Call of Juarez: The Cartel review

5 August 2011
  • Conclusion: If you buy CoJ:TC I hope you are a fan of the previous games, as any newcomers to this will get an average story, with average graphics and average gameplay. It can be fun for a while, but an ultimately average multiplayer which uses an idea that has been done and used way better by IO Interactive, means I can only recommend this for a rental.
  • Pros: Decent storyline. Collecting items in secret is fun and tactical in co-op. Great gameplay balance (guns/cars/fighting).
  • Cons: Repeated dialogue is annoying. Falling on the floor from distant explosions can be irritating. Only one multiplayer mode disguised as two.
