Call of Juarez: The Cartel

Defunct Games
16 September 2011
  • 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: Wow. Not sure what happened here. I enjoyed the last Call of Juarez game, Bound in Blood. It wasn’t a Red Dead Redemption, but it was a fun romp that made you feel like you were in a Spaghetti Western.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Excerpt: At one point there were not enough Western shooter games. You had efforts like GUN from Neversoft (the guys who made the Tony Hawk skateboarding games), and you had mods for Quake 3 that simply lacked anything from the good old days.

Call of Juarez: The Cartel

Total Xbox
4 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Ditching a traditional prologue, this modern-day reinvention of the Western-themed shooter series immediately tosses you into a raucous highway chase where, from the passenger window of your fast-moving SUV, you pump rival vehicles full of lead and watch them detonate.
  • Pros: + Decent co-op experience with varied campaign locales.
  • Cons: - Loaded with recurring visual glitches and gameplay bugs., - Grating character quips from inattentive, lazy A.I. partners., ? Any chance for a return to the Old West aesthetic?

3 August 2011
  • Conclusion: Call of Juarez: The Cartel surprised us, and not in a good way, as it took everything that was good about the last game and pretty much ruined it. The technical flaws are numerous, and The Cartel just isn’t fun in any way, shape or form.

27 July 2011
  • Excerpt: I was a fan of the series until this game came along and after playing The Cartel I think the main problem is in the transition from past to present, the game lost much of its charm. It decided to get serious on us, and that really doesn't work in a game like this.
