Call of Juarez: The Cartel review

GamesRadar

  • Pros: Heroes' hidden agendas are a nice touch, Competitive elements make co-op more fun, Gets a little better in its final chapters
  • Cons: Looks unpolished to the point of hideousness, Mediocre voice acting and terrible combat banter, Wastes great ideas on a mediocre-at-best shooter

  • Summary: Call of Juarez: The Cartel is a hodgepodge of bad ideas and performance issues. Even if you can get past the technical problems, this heavy-handed action game never quite lives up to its potential.

  • Excerpt: In a moment of pure glee, a grenade bounced on an enemy’s head, killing him – unexpectedly awarding the “ kills with grenade” trophy – before falling under a car, taking out three more enemies. This, by far, was 200,000 times better than anything else that Call of Juarez: The Cartel has to offer.

Violent first-person shooter deals in sex, drugs, profanity.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Call of Juarez: The Cartel is an adult-oriented first-person shooter with a broad range of mature themes. Players can expect to encounter intense violence, several prolonged scenes of frank sexuality, frequent and extreme profanity, and references to drugs.

  • Conclusion: The story gets a little interesting, particularly the way each character is shady and has a different viewpoint with no-one getting the full picture, but there’s not enough to make me want to play it again to find out the rest.

  • Summary: I have a soft spot of " Call of Juarez: The Cartel ". It has a good story to tell, and manages to incorporate a lot of this in to its pacing, game play and co-op multiplayer. However, if I were to remove the story and assess it on purely technical grounds it is something of a mess.

  • Excerpt: Save for a few novel ideas, Call of Juarez: The Cartel is, by far, the fledgling franchise's worst installment in nearly every possible way. The visuals are no exception. The first thing you'll notice is the amazingly ugly pixelated grey font the developers have chosen for the user interface.

  • Excerpt: With Call of Juarez: The Cartel, developer Techland has taken its now three-strong series into the modern era, but in doing so has produced what feels like the most dated game of the bunch.

  • Excerpt: I really enjoyed the last Call of Juarez game, Bound in Blood. It was a great western game with an interesting cast of characters and some fantastic gunplay. When I heard they were mixing things up with The Cartel by bringing the series into present day Mexico, my immediate thought was why fix what...

  • Conclusion: Just be warned, if you get the friend to buy the game on your recommendation they may not appear in your friends list again. The only saving grace I give this game is that it only takes around 4 hours to complete the campaign.
