Call of Juarez: The Cartel has three player co-op, but according to this trailer there is also plenty of competition to go around if you want there to be.
As a Western movie buff, I'm still not over the fact that they took one of the few decent Western game franchises into the modern era. X-COM? Loved it. XCOM? I'm close to being over that game having that name. It's a game about shooting aliens, harvesting and researching alien tech to use against them, and managing a team. So far, at least some of those elements seem to be in XCOM. So fine, whatever, let's see what they make of it. It might be a good game even though it's not X-COM.
The Cartel though? I don't see any traces of the Western setting that made the Call of Juarez games stand out in the crowd. Those who played the past two games might see some familiar FPS gameplay going on, and some of the "enemies running between trees in a tree-infested hilltop area" stuff that wasn't quite the highlight of Bound in Blood.
It's weird, but I just feel almost nothing for The Cartel. No rage, no disappointment, no giddy anticipation. It just seems to be "there," and if anything, I feel more confused about why it is called Call of Juarez and what it's supposed to be. Maybe time will tell when it's released on July 19th, 2011.

KyWii Why is it that Sundays always feel so lazy? I always tell myself I'm going to get things done and then...well....SeymourDuncan17 So, I plan on using my GameStop Power-Up Rewards points (yes) to buy all the eventual P4DAN DLC. Even though the practices are very suspect. I am so not made of stone.

A whispered voice spoke from the obelisk. Do you pay too much for your Internet? Comcast.

This theme perfectly captures the essence of Valak Mountain. It feel serene and calm, as well as mountain-esque (lol).Lawman What does one do when MGS V has lost its luster and Persona 4: DAN is growing stale? Listen to Queens of the Stone Age, of course. And wonder; is Steins;Gate worth the asking price? I want it, but not sure if I $30 - $40 want it...Terry 309 Been trying to get Tales Of Phantasia finished before Zestiria comes out... How i'm going to get through that game I have no clue... especially when Exist Archive comes out in December and I have to play that too... also i've still yet to finish Grandia 2TheLimoMaker Been in a bit of a rut this week and as such haven't really been satisfied with any of my games. Therefore, I'm going to start Destiny again on my new PS+ account. Any tips given the amount of updates it's had?
