Ships Ahoy - Call of Juarez: the Cartel

Though not noted on the official website, Call of Juarez: The Cartel is now available in North America, offering the modern-day follow-up to Techland's wild western first-person shooter. In addition to being available in stores, the game is also available online from Direct2Drive, Impulse, and Steam. Here's a blurb on the game: "Welcome to the new Wild West. This first-person shooter brings the lawlessness of the Old West into present day. You’ll embark on a bloody road trip from Los Angeles to Juarez, Mexico immersing yourself in a gritty plot with interesting characters and a wide variety of game play options."

I wonder why the devs doing the developmental or the testers cant see that what they are making/testing is nothing but pile a shit.

It doesn't really matter at that point. The publisher has already paid for the game and the devs have to finish it by a certain deadline. They don't have time to restart from scratch and the publishers aren't going to let them just cancel the project. In the end, it's all about the money.

I could care less about this game but im just wondering which world they are living in, obvious they are not willing to produce a descent product .
Its shit products like this that make people pirate games I would fucking feel robed if I bought this game.

Seems like they wanted to cash in on the modern military shooter fad but tried to stand out by replacing soldiers with cops and terrorists with gangbangers and cartel thugs.

Really a shame to see this series driven into the ground like this. The original was a very good game with the "US patch" which toned down the stealth and limited arrows. The second one was great as a sort of CoD game in the wild west, and looked gorgeous.

Why they tanked the whole thing with this is beyond me.

You would think that this game is the shovelware based off a movie franchise.

To bad really, if you overlooked some of the bad design choices made in the first two, they were actually quite fun.

I was okay with the shift to modern day, but I'm a little less okay with the shift to a crap game (judging by the review scores).

48/100 for this game's PC version on Metacritic, and a few points lower for the consoles, for what it's worth.

Wow...
