+It works
+I didn't encountre ANY bugs
+few small inovations
+You can play it in co-op...
-...but why would you do that
-graphics are ♥♥♥♥
-shooting is weak
-multiplayer is dead
-story wants you to commit suicide
-mission structure
-driving section
-there to just to much on a bad side tthat there is even no sense for writting it anymore

Overall rating 4/10
Terrible game, ONLY worth a buy for die hard CoJ fans. It's a badly made game with a list of flaws. What even hurts more that it was made by the same dev's that did amazing CoJ Bound in Blood.

tl;dr, a mediocre entry in a fairly solid franchise.

The Call of Juarez is a western based first person shooter; think cowboys, revolvers and such. This entry in the franchise took the franchise to a more modern time, centering on gangs and drugs. This upset many fans who immediately gave it a 0/100. While I personally believe the preceding and following games (Bound in Blood and Gunslinger) are far superior products, for the most part this game is mediocre and not terrible.

Gameplay 7/10
At the heart of the game is fairly solid gameplay that plays like all the other entries in the Call of Juarez series. Weapons are powerful, but manageable, and the game ticks off all the positive points of a first person shooter. What brings the game down is driving sections or really anything that relies on your allies.

Characters/Story 2/10
Without a doubt the weakest part of this game is the characters you will be interacting with and the story you'll be interacting in. Your AI team will complain if you miss, complain if you play well, and factor into the non-sense story with secret agendas (Everyone is bad etc.). My least favorite parts of this game are the parts where you have to rely on your team mates for anything, as they are just terrible. Not only are they absolutely incompetent, but their one dimensional personalities are absolutely grating and their tacky voice acting is just awful.

Sound 8/10
Easily the strongest part of this game is the excellent sound design. Music is well written and fits the period well, with modern western metal mixing with a score. Firearms have a powerful sounding boom, and even the starter AK and pistol sounding like a cannon when it goes off.

Visuals 7/10
While I experienced no major pop-ups/glitches, the game is average for the course. Serviceable with occasional rendering delays.

Overall 24/40 or 60%. I personally would recommend skipping this game, for even with the solid sound engineering and gunplay, it's sequel (and prequel) do that without the irritating characters. If it goes on sale and you're a completion-ist, by all means go for it.

This would be kind of a 50/50 to recommend. As far as being a call of juarez game it doesn't really fit and it comes off as a bit cheesier then the other games. If you're looking for another game in this particular series you might be disappointed. As a standalone game it's pretty entertaining. The graphics are rather impressive as well as the environments. One thing that does get annoying is your partners constant badgering. Every 10 seconds they yell " if we weren't watching your back you'd be mother♥♥♥♥ing dead" or " do you ever practice with that thing." And if they arnt insulting you then there are attacking you for hogging all the action like a couple of bipolar ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s. Despite that, it has a good variety of different locations to keep it interesting throughout. You even get to go back to a location from the first game which is kind of cool. This game was worth playing at least once at a discount but could've been a whole lot better if they didn't decide to cheese it up.

This game is not as horrible as I was led to believe. It's... inoffensively bland I guess? Which is not good if your game follows the excellent Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood.
It was okay to play through and I didn't encounter anything so bad that would make me stop, with the helicopter fights coming close though. Some levels were fun, and it was nice to revisit Juarez's fort from CoJ & CoJ:BiB, now fallen into disrepair.

I had ZERO problems with UPlay, really. It worked fine for me all the way.

Don't let my playtime fool you, that was me trying to go around the many problems in this game.

I really wanted to say this game is good, it has good elements, like the three distinct storylines but that's about it.
Bugged, poorly polished, typos, bad action. This game shouldn't be sold. This is the major regret in games I bought.
You can't even finish the achievements since the "play on hard" cheevo simply won't unlock (That's my playtime, I played through the game 3 times, on hard, and it did not unlock).

Simple: don't buy it, even heavily discounted. Play the other ones, this one is just... Ugh!

You know those games that frustrate you without end but you love them anyways? Weeeelllll, this is not one of them. This game is filled with 2 partners that talk you down endlessly even if you miss just one shot (admittedly they praise you as well when you do a headshot but that doesn't weigh up to the endless nagging), the fact your partners talk you down all the time but them being useless whilst talking you down and often walking in your way makes the game dreary to play, then there's the gloom of death which hangs over the levels like an endless fog making it almost impossible to spot enemies at times, not to forget the terrible cutscenes which are incredibly cliche/unimaginative most of the time. I guess I could go on about little things like shooting being a bit dodgy sometimes but the above should be enough to put you off.

Does this game have any redeeming features you might wonder and surprisingly yes I can actually think of two things, ocassionally shooting can feel nice specifically when you make a vehicle explode killing some enemies around it. The only other positive, and this is really the best thing you can do in the game, was watching a stripper do her thing for a minute just to get the achievement ... oh wait I just needed to watch her for 30 seconds.

4/10 and that's me being generous.

Finished this game around 7 hours and it was pretty good. Same engine as Dead Island so it looked nice and the gun play was fun. Cheesy script annoying partner AI and repeating lines were annoying as hell. They tried and failed at making a connection to the previous two Juarez games. Really bad FOV/Bloom/motion blur but can be fixed although not very easily. I think this game got worse reviews then it deserved though. If you liked the other Juarez game and want a cheap decent shooter give it a try. I only paid $2.99 for it thank you GamersGate. If you haven't played any of the Juarez games you should play 1, 2 and Gunslinger those are all really good.

Does anyone care?

I have finished about 1/3 of the game. So far so good. I would love to give it thumbs up. But unfortunatelly i will have to do the opposite.

I cannot continue.
On first day everything was fine. Uplay and steam worked fine together. Accounts were conected and i have seen no problems.
Day after - Uplay doesn't allow me to log in. "Too many log-in attempts". Rubbish. If 0 is too many then f*** you ubisoft. Click on play offline - to play offline log in to your account... Argh...

UPlay is steaming piece of s***.

AVOID BUYING ANYTHING THAT REQURES DOUBLE DRM (especially if second drm is uplay).
Sadly CoJ:TC is one of those games.

:(

UPDATE!

Uplay kindly allowed me to log in after some time, and I was able to finish the game. Still cannot recommend it. On highest possible difficulty game was easy and I was still dying all the time because of technical issues (for example killed by enemy that fell below the ground xD).
Driving in this game is terrible (and they made too many parts that needs driving). Shooting is nice and story is decent (especially endings). AI is probably worst AI created ever and your companions deal almost no damage. Game was designed for co-op, but you won't find anybody to play with.


SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT for Achievement hunters.
Achievements are broken. Probably because of double DRM.
Haven't received Achievo for beating game on hardest difficulty.
In the middle of the story - game stopped counting towards some achievements (fe. kill 30 people in slow motion), while other were working.
Turning off steam cloud, setting uplay to offline mode, deleting all saves (in steam and uplay) and reinstalling game helped with some achievements. But not with the one for beating game in hardest difficoulty - looks like this one is impossible to get.


SUMMARY:
DON'T BUY THIS
Bloom effect will burn your eyes, technical issues will frustrate you and double DRM will do everything to not let you even launch the game.

The Call of Juarez series is one I'd definitely recommend giving a go. Every game in the series is distinct and has its own identity, which is something I really appreciate. I'll avoid going into too much detail about the rest here, but they're all a good time with individual strengths and weaknesses that form a satisfying whole.

Unfortunately, the defining characteristic of game number three, The Cartel, is that it's an utter shambles. The classic Wild West setting of the previous games was ditched for a staggeringly uninspired modern-day Los Angeles/Mexico counterpart, which is exactly as appealing as it sounds (i.e. not at all). Likewise, the hole left by the entertaining and likeable cast of the first game and Bound in Blood (like legendary gunslinger Ray McCall) is filled with some of the flattest caricatures to ever spout tired one-liners. Once all the character and charm of Call of Juarez has been stripped away, what you're left with is a medicore first-person shooter that is an absolute chore in single-player and probably not much better in the new co-op mode. Solo players be warned: your AI partners are incompetent, and they will make no effort to hide it, though they will continually belittle your performance as you carry them for the game's entire duration.

Lackluster AI, boring gunplay, dull visuals and an uninteresting plot combine for eight hours of unmitigated tedium. The only saving grace is the way the game ends, which could have been a pretty cool conclusion to a much better game, but is of course held back here by being part of The Cartel. In retrospect it's good that the series had one final outing after this, though The Cartel remains a testament to how quickly good games can go bad. It's almost worth playing just for that lesson, though I'd suggest you try any of the others over this rubbish.

Let me start by saying I really do enjoy this game, it really isn't as bad as the reviews say. However, I completely and fully say do not bother with it on Steam. The uPlay is absolutely awful, and the game refuses to play on every computer I have tested it on (and I am FAR above even the recommended settings.) After attempting to start new game, the game crashes and you are taunted with a "Thank you for playing Call of Juarez: The Cartel" window from ubisoft. ♥♥♥♥ those guys, and ♥♥♥♥ this game on steam.

Oh, and ♥♥♥♥ the censorship here, you can eat a ♥♥♥♥, censorship you punk ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥♥

Even though I'm giving it a thumbs up, I have mixed feelings about this game. The Cartel is the worst game in the Call of Juarez series, but it does have a few features that other games in the series (and even many co-op FPS games in general) don't have and make this game unique and somehow enjoyable to play. I would recommend this, but only when it's heavily discounted and you've got one or two friends to play in co-op with.

PROS
+ Good campaign mode with an intriguing (and underrated) storyline and characters, 4 endings and amazing soundtrack. It includes co-op mode, which is required for the full experience.
+ Replayable: 3 playable characters each with their own objectives, roles and dialogues (e.g. talking with different characters on the cellphone). Playing the story once with one character, in fact, may lead to plot-holes.
+ Varied levels with car chases, nightclub shooting, highways and more.
+ Random challenges mid-game (e.g. kill X enemies before the other players). It kinda kills the teamwork sometimes but I find it to be a nice addition, also because the main characters, plot-wise, don't get quite along with each other.

CONS
- Unfinished: the game got released when its development wasn't finished yet. It is technically horrible, with dull graphics, many bugs and audio issues. Expect frustrating moments.
- The main menu and the first levels are dull (luckily the game gets slightly better and more interesting afterwards).
- The gunplay, the driving and grenades.
- No drop-in joining (players can only join your co-op match at the start of a level).
- Multiplayer is dead.

Personal rating: 58/100

The game as-is, is MOSTLY technically horrible, but if you can get past its technical issues and focus on everything else, you might enjoy it in co-op with one or two friends.
If only Techland had more time to develop this it could have probably been a masterpiece; co-op mode is good and unique, the story is decent with memorable moments, but the rest is heavily unpolished. Dead Island, which is made by the same devs, got released in the same year.

Tip before you play: don't tell your friends what you're doing and what your character says in certain moments for the full experience!

An extremely mediocre offering and I write this as a RABID Call of Juarez and all things western fan. I went into this looking for even a schlocky B-movie sort of good time after purchasing it on sale and I had to muster a LOT of courage to make it through to the end. Disappointing gunplay, terrible driving segments, paper thin characters and plotting, only play it if you're desperate for a gritty crime shooter and you've literally played everything else on your backlog. A huge disappointment. The series was thankfully put back on track with Gunslinger and I expect great things from Techland regarding the future of the franchise. But this one?

Keep clear.

Call of Juarez is a western-themed FPS game series released by Ubisoft. The Cartel is the "odd one out" in this series as it is the only one taking place in a modern day setting instead of the good old Wild West. Interestingly, the concept works and it makes for a good - albeit somewhat mediocre - game that fans can feel free to pick up as it becomes, after all, an important part of the franchise.

The game is best played cooperatively. For some reason the developer decided to pick not two (remember Bound In Blood?) but 3 protagonists. When playing alone they are controlled by the A.I but they are not exactly sharpshooters; however, the upside here is that you do not need to revive any of them.

They all work for a different organisation serving their country - Ben is an LAPD cop (he wears a cowboy hat and his surname indicates he is the descendant of Ray McCall from the 1st game), Kim is from the FBI and Eddie represents the DEA. They are all after The Cartel and during gameplay each of them receives a phone call asking them to complete a secondary objective. This is pretty funny as with each player you are to pick up various things and the rest cannot know about it. If noticed, you lose the opportunity. These are all illegal activities (such as stealing money) as to a certain degree all of them are dirty.

There are some driving sequences, too. One player drives while the rest do the shooting. The mechanics are similar to the one experienced in Dead Island (another Techland game series): it is pretty easy to navigate but the camera is positioned behind the dashboard so you do not exactly have the chance to change the view. There's also levelling up that unlocks newer and more powerful weapons throughout the game but it is pretty generic. Multiplayer is also available and while it does not offer anything new it is pretty entertaining.

Like I said this is the odd one out in the series but it does not mean it is a bad game. At the time (2011) the Chrome engine already looked outdated and while there is a handful of cinematics the game's story is not exactly very original. Still, The Cartel is an entertaining game and if you liked Call of Juarez you might get fond of this, too.

Just remember: beside McCall's character and the slow-mo shootouts and the available revolvers nothing really makes you remember its predecessors. Perhaps it's best to wait for a discount so as not to be disappointed very much.

bad boys, bad boys... whatcha ya gonna do? what you gonna do when they come for you?... The game was very entertaining to play, since I love "Bad Boys", old westerns, car chases with gunfire, room entry in slo-mo while you take down a bandit with a precise headshot. It's really fun to play, and it could've been better if it had no bugs.

The Call of Juarez franchise should've stopped with the first one, which was plain bad! But then Bound in Blood changed my mind! But then The Cartel appeared and strenghtened my first feeling! But then Gunslinger appeared and gave me that nice nostalgic feel of the 2nd one! Boy, those are a lot of "But then"s :P
Anyways, The Cartel Is an average FPS that lets you play as 1 of the 3 agents at your choice, each one with it's unique abilities (but those abilities/skills are pretty boring, like faster reload for pistols with one guy, the other reloads faster with SMGs and can Dual-Wield them and the female agent reloads rifles faster, aaaand that is it...)
Going to the graphics, they are below average, bad texture pop-ins here and there and offline lag! YES! The campaign lags when you play (framerate drops and lag, actually), when you run to be specific, same issue that I had previously with Dead Island (same engine BTW).
Character models are just awful and the dialogue is f*cking laughable.
Gameplay wise, the guns all feel pretty much the same, and they all feel bad! Except the pistols, so I just used the pistols the whole game, except during Concentration mode (slows down time and increases accuracy for a short period of time) that you get by killing people, and also used rifles and smg's during the car shootout and car chases, because pistol kind of suck in those situations. There are also pretty ugly bugs here and there and some glitches, but Techland just doesn't give a sh*it and instead of patching it up, they just decided to move on to another sh*tty project called Dead Island: Riptide, and that worked out pretty well, didn't it? Huh...
Multiplayer is your standard rack up kills, get XP, new level, YAY! Here's a new ♥♥♥♥♥♥ weapon, have a blast!
Noone plays it anymore btw, so if you want to get it, buy for the SP Campaign (with a bad story as well, pretty bad and nonsensical and uninteresting and many more bad adjectives) which is decently long (around 7 to 8 hours) and the collectibles are an interesting mechanic as well as they work like side missions and you kind of have to do it discretely so that the other 2 agents don't catch you. It makes things a bit more tense and spices up things, making the campaign interesting enough until the end.
Co-Op is also pretty fun with friends. It's a standard 3 player maximum co-op mode where each plays one of the in-game characters.
There isn't much more to approach to this game but an extra fly in the soup: an extra DRM known as Games for Windows Li...AH! Just joking! It does NOT use GFWL, thankfully, but it does use UPlay, which is Ubisoft's DRM for their games, I haven't had any huge issues with this DRM, it's just annoying but I can live with it...
it doesn't deserve more than a 4.5/10, save you 10 € for something better like Kane & Lynch 2 or Counter Strike: Global Offensive.
I paid 4,99€ at a retail shop for this and honestly, I feel like it was worth it, but don't pay much more than that...

Thanks to Uplay I can't play this game, therefore I cannot recommend it if it comes to my point of view. Shame, because I like Call of Juarez serie a lot. I don't know how the game really is, so bear in mind I wrote thie negative review due to having problems with running it.

Call of Juarez: The Cartel drops the best appeal of the original by dropping the western theme, instead offering a mediocre modern day themed story where you control horribly written "bad cop" characters. If you're looking for a good western game, don't touch The Cartel, instead check out the original or CoJ: Gunlisnger among others.

Judged by its own merits this game still lacks everything to be enjoyable - movement, gunplay and gameplay in general are below average. You might laugh once or twice the things the character says in concentration mode but overall this game offers nothing of interest. It also has a multiplayer mode which no one plays. It's a below average, janky and generic shooter and it's easy to see why it tarnished the Call of Juarez name at the time of its release.

This was a tough yes or no review. Def get the game when its on sale!! I beat the game once and i plan on beating it twice due to you get to play as 1 of the 3 characters. The story wise doesnt change as much just some little things such as the people calling you. Gameplay was okayish. The combat felt terrible at times and the driving is just like playing the enter the matrix game. Three annoying aspect about this game was that jumping off a small stair case can kill you, second one is when your trying to find items to lvl up sometimes you may go off the mission area causing you to fail the mission. and the last one is you have to follow the path the game gives you.

Pros
lvl up system- giving you new weapons
Can choose your weapon loadout
Small little side missions to do
3 playable characters each have a different story (different story but you pretty much play the game all over again)
2 different endings

cons
Bugs- Ai sometimes are in boxes and walls shooting at you
Cant go your on path
Driving is bloody awful.
Combat while fighting against heli's is just clunky

Alright, all of the problems asside, slow frame rate, cheap difficulty, bad voice recording and buggy gameplay...Those things could have been forgiven if there was some substance to the story line that might tip the scales in this games favour...but there isn't even that. For some reason, it had to be made "hip" and set in modern day LA, where the previous games were set mainly in boarder towns between the southern USA and Mexico...The McCall brothers have been replaced by a DEA agent, an FBI agent and a street cop sergeant who looks like he was the attempt to rip off Ray McCall in modern day but fails in every way. I haven't gotten ALL the way through the game yet but even after nine hours of gameplay I've heard no mention of anything linking this to the previous two except for a last minute entry great grand son that the previous games never supported. There's not a mention of the gold of Juarez, or the town, or really anything to do with what the game is labeled about THE CALL OF JUAREZ...there's not any mention of the treasure let alone those who go mad searching for it. I'm not normally one to completely can a game unless there's nothing redeemable about it, and (I might not have played it enough, but) there is nothing redeemable about this title at all, I don't care about the characters, the story isn't engaging and the gameplay is broken and the sound design is well below sub-par...Play Call of Juarez, Call of Juarez - Bound in Blood and/or Call of Juarez - Gunslinger, and call those a trilogy, but avoid this one at all costs.

I don't get all the hate and bad reputation this poor game has earned.

Sure, it isn't a Call of Juarez like the two before, or.. a Call of Juarez at all, as the only things in common are a guy called McCall, a trip to Juarez in a couple of stages, and the bullet-time which isn't as good as in the previous titles.

It wasn't ported perfectly on PC, that's true. You almost can't set up the graphics at all, there's a motion blur and a depth blur that can be annoying, but you'll get used to them pretty soon.
But for the rest? It's a simple action fps like tons of others, with badass characters "maxpayneing" their way against an army of bad dudes, a lot of gunfightings, explosions, car pursuits, a story that's maybe a bit confusing but overall good, great voice acting, the same easy controls as every fps...

It may not be the most original fps of all times, it's very linear and doesn't allow you to explore anything, but.. who cares? It's fast paced, funny and entertaining for all its length, and never bored me.

Give it a chance
