Call of Juarez - The Cartel (PS3)
Call of Juarez: The Cartel is the third installment of the Western action shooter video game franchise, Call of Juarez. Call of Juarez: The Cartel includes the same attributes of a great Western shooter, upgraded to reflect modern times. For instance, instead of outlaws and brothels, you'll find cartel kingpins and strip clubs. But make no mistake, the spirit of the Wild West is still very much alive. You'll experience the lawlessness of the old country as you fight to take down a powerful drug cartel in a world where every man is out for himself.
Experience a Gripping, Cinematic Story

As you dig into the mystery of the bombing and fight to dismantle the cartel, you'll embark on a blood-soaked road trip through California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and, ultimately, Juarez, Mexico.

The reviews I had read had veered to the negative but I am not so sure.
Certainly not as polished as the Battlefield or COD franchises and not really as good as its predecessors, COJ - The Cartel is not the worst FPS I have ever played. It is quite fun and fast, the weapons have variety and certainly all handle differently. The one player game is long and the game contains a variety of environments and gameplay styles. Nice ideas include individual character story lines and objectives, and fun driving and shooting sequences.
There are some sloppy graphical issues but these do not get in the way of the game play.
If you are a FPS fan like myself this game is worth a punt if you find it in a bargain bin, just do not expect too much even if you liked the previous games in the series.
The plot revolves around an inter-agency task force that is formed to catch the bombers of a federal building. Kim Evans is a long range specialist who works for the FBI; Eddie Guerra is a smooth talking DEA agent, whereas Ben McCall is a no-nonsense cop. To further tensions between these characters, secret agendas can be found on most levels. Successful completion requires that you are not seen by the other characters, and tasks can range from bugging a phone to stealing something valuable. Additionally, secret items can be picked up on each level. For Kim these are firearms, Eddie steals bags of marijuana, and strangely, Ben collects walkie talkies. Completing these objectives earns XP, which in turn unlocks more guns. Because the plot lumbers from one set piece to another, this mechanic adds some intrigue, and much needed depth to the characters. It also explains their motivations, even if they are extremely heavy handed. For example, Ben's secret agendas benefit a prostitute whose child has contracted Hepatitis C.
As a co-operative experience, The Cartel is actually quite fun. But sadly the online community is non-existent, and getting into a game can be a frustrating affair. In addition to playing the game co-operatively, competitive multiplayer is also included. Despite only 4 maps, they are well designed and varied. Furthermore, The Cartel deserves credit with its lobby designs, which allows players to interact with each other before the level loads; anything that improves upon cold, clinical menu screens is greatly appreciated.
Visuals are functional, but never spectacular, and the majority of gameplay elements are blatantly lifted from other titles (like Team Entry). The Cartel is also riddled with glitches, although they are rarely game breaking. On a few occasions, I couldn't advance to the next objective because a character got stuck on a piece of scenery, or the objective itself wouldn't update. However, these were all solved with a checkpoint reload. There is also a baffling difference between in game dialogue and the corresponding subtitles. At one point a character says "that gives us probable cause", but the text reads "probably cause". It's a minor issue, but a schoolboy error nonetheless.
Despite requiring 3 playthroughs (including one on hard), this is a relatively easy Platinum, and at a budget price it's a FPS worth playing.
I would like to start with the positives of this title but to be honest there are none, even its fairly short game length feels like it is dragged out and much longer than it should be.
The graphics, which are really bad considering the platform and when this game was released are not quite PS2 standard as indicated by some but look terrible when you compare them to some of the other games that came out at the same time as this title.
The gameplay is awful and again this is comparable to PS2 games as there are many FPS which actually play better. You have generic shootout sequences which show that the AI has literally no intelligence, you are treated to quite possibly some of the most annoying driving sections in a game ever thanks to poor vehicle response which can only be likened to driving through treacle and the collision detection in some parts is absolutely terrible.
Even as a budget buy this game is not recommended as you will always feel as if you have spent too much and I am truly amazed that Techland and Ubisoft had the nerve to release this as it was, obviously the feedback from testing got lost in the post.
