Solid but the first two parts were better.


For the first time in the series, we can see the wild west in modern times. The Los Angeles is now dominated by gangs is making a sensational atmosphere. The graphics for a change had survived the test of time fairly well, the game is very pleasant to the eye even to this day. The game is also very playable just mind that the original Call of Juarez are better games. I recommend finishing them first and after that play this one.

Unexpected Sequel


This third Call of Juarez game is nothing like the previous 2, but it isn't as horrible as others would have you believe either. It's a competent cover based shooter with a couple of AI controlled characters that fight alongside you. The locations are varied, but linear. While the first 2 games were set in the wild west, this one is set in a modern city and eventually goes to Juarez for the endgame. You will fight in forests, cities, houses, courtyards, and car chases where you don't drive, but shoot instead. The story is pretty horrible, as is the voice acting. There's a lot of cursing, which doesn't usually bother me, but since the characters and story aren't any good, it gets annoying in this game. There's a few turret sections, a helicopter fight, and storming a mansion, so there's nothing original in this game at all. Instead of cowboys and indians, this game is cops and drug dealers. The shooting aspects are very fun and make the game worth playing, but only if you can get this game dirt cheap, because it really isn't worth it otherwise. There's 3 playable characters, but you will only play this game once. It's fun, but shouldn't bear the Call of Juarez name as it more or less killed the franchise due to its attempt at doing something new. They should have just made another western.

Decent shooter


As the title states. You get a good first person shooter, pretty decent graphics, nice music and believable characters. The game also has some measure of replayability, as you can chose three different characters to impersonate. Each time you get a bit different story, as every person has his/her own life and problems to deal with. All things considered - good shooter to waste some time with on a boring day.

Fun if you have friends to play with


Call of Juarez: The Cartel is a change of pace on the Call of Juarez series. If you expect a wild west cowboy game like the previous games then this game is not for you because the game setting is on the modern era. Graphics are good considering it's from 2011, expect some weird physics because that's what you're gonna encounter when you face a ton of enemies around. The AI is broken, don't pick the easiest difficulty because you'll end it in no time, your AI friends most of the times they do nothing that's why I suggest you to play this game co-op with 2 more friends to play with Multiplayer is broken or nonexistence, you'll encounter 2-3 cheaters per match or... nothing at all because no one plays this game anymore Overall it's a fun experience if you only wanna try out the single-player mode which takes around only 4 hours of gameplay (more if you three want to do all collectibles without "getting caught")

Wild west...nooooo!


Dust, hats, revolvers, wild west...Call of Juarez...yea.... no... what is this. This game was very good Western shooter, and now we get... nothing. Game is too monotonic it' not worth playing it more that one day. Game is working on their new engine Chrome Engine 5, but it seems that engine have a slight problem with textures. Sound... a lot of curses.
