Call of Juarez: The Cartel

Enjoyed the first COJ game but the 2nd was :rolleyes:. This trailer has me interested. Sure its not the old west anymore, but if the areas are as open as the trailer suggests, it could be just what I've been waiting for since a none pc release of RDR.

Nice. Think I'd go through solo on first play, then ramp up the difficulty and play with a couple of mates. Just hope the maps are as open as they look there, and the vehicle handling similar to GTA4 or Mafia 2 :smashin:.

Saw the trailer for this yesterday, it has me interested.

It does remind me a lot of GTA though, the characters are also a little clichéd but they were in the previous ones too so that's ok.

Do you know the release date?

Looks quite interesting - I think the co-op could be really good.

Gives me a couple of months to get 2 friends :rolleyes:

:D

yes but if you compare western styled games to the american street or thug-life style games, the latter has been overdone imo.
i really enjoyed the first games, im just a little sad theyve gone in this direction. another 70's styled game like vice city would have been an improvement :laugh:

True, I would have preferred an old west style game, but I still think this might be a good mix - really depends how much is in each backdrop (hopefully as much in the desert). Btw, just for accuracy, Vice city was a hommage to the 80's/miami vice era :). If you want something truly set in the 70's (at least half of it), it would be Driver - Parallel Lines.

Hi, hope its ok if i hijack this thread temporarily.

I just started playing through the first game and there is a bit where you get a cannon and a bunch 'blue-bellies' are trying to cross the river on rafts. im trying to pop them as they are crossing the river, but seem to be unable to hit them.

Am i doing this wrong, or am i just a crap shot?

That's the second game, and yes you are a crap shot. :laugh:

Try to anticipate where they are going rather than aiming straight at them.

oops :blush:

didnt realise it was the second. must admit ive never given this series a look, and only have this because it was in the ubisoft pack.

Ok will give that approach a punt :)
