Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood wasn't a great videogame by any stretch of the imagination, but it had a certain charm to it, and some terrific ideas. The series seems to be all about these really clever design choices that suffer from a lack of follow-through, be it through lack of time, skill, budget or all three.  Call of Juarez: The Cartel is exactly like that. But worse. Far worse.

A year removed from the PlayStation Move's launch, one should expect that tech demos and minigame compilations would be out of the door to make way for the kind of genuinely rich experiences that were promised.  Carnival Island is a compilation of minigames that demonstrate the technology of the PlayStation Move.  Oh well.
