A Gritty and Intense Experience: Call of Juarez The Cartel Xbox 360 Review

Title: A Gritty and Intense Experience: Call of Juarez The Cartel Xbox 360 Review


Call of Juarez The Cartel for Xbox 360 takes players on a thrilling journey through the dark underbelly of the drug trade in modern-day Los Angeles and Mexico. Developed by Techland and published by Ubisoft, this first-person shooter offers a unique twist on the Call of Juarez series, shifting the setting from the Wild West to the present day. With its intense storyline, engaging gameplay, and impressive visuals, The Cartel aims to deliver an immersive experience. In this review, we will delve into the various aspects of the game to determine its overall quality.

Graphics and Sound:

Visually, Call of Juarez The Cartel is a mixed bag. While the character models and environments are generally well-designed, some textures and animations can appear dated. However, the game compensates for this with its attention to detail in recreating the gritty atmosphere of the drug trade. The sound design is commendable, with realistic weapon sounds and voice acting that adds depth to the characters. The soundtrack effectively enhances the tension and action, immersing players further into the game's world.


The Cartel offers a solid first-person shooting experience, with a variety of weapons and intense gunfights. Players can choose from three playable characters, each with their own unique abilities and playstyles. The cooperative multiplayer mode allows for seamless drop-in/drop-out gameplay, making it enjoyable to team up with friends. The game also incorporates a cover system, which adds a tactical element to combat. However, the AI of both enemies and allies can be inconsistent, occasionally leading to frustrating moments.


The narrative of Call of Juarez The Cartel is one of its strongest aspects. The game explores the complex dynamics between three law enforcement officers from different backgrounds, tasked with taking down a powerful drug cartel. The story is filled with twists, betrayals, and moral dilemmas, keeping players engaged throughout. The writing is well-crafted, delving into the dark and gritty world of drug trafficking, and successfully immersing players in the characters' struggles.

Replay Value:

While the main campaign offers a satisfying experience, the replay value of The Cartel is somewhat limited. The linear nature of the missions and lack of branching paths restricts the game's overall replayability. However, the cooperative multiplayer mode and the option to choose different characters for subsequent playthroughs provide some variation. Additionally, the game features collectibles and achievements to encourage exploration and completionist playstyles.


Call of Juarez The Cartel for Xbox 360 delivers an intense and gritty experience, immersing players in the dark world of drug trafficking. Despite some graphical shortcomings and occasional AI issues, the game excels in its engaging storyline, solid gameplay mechanics, and cooperative multiplayer mode. While its replay value may not be as high as desired, the overall experience is well worth the investment for fans of the first-person shooter genre.
