I’m still trying to absorb the fact that after making my favourite of the Call of Juarez games, developer Techland decided to shift the entire franchise from the old west to modern times and make it about drug dealing.
But I adjusted. At least it will deal with a very real modern problem in a modern western setting. Well, not quite. Despite the fact that the game is still about the Mexican city of Juarez, it’s US setting is somehow Los Angeles, not El Paso, Texas.
For those of you unfamiliar with the geographic of West Texas and Mexico, if it weren’t for the whole border thing, El Paso and Juarez would essentially be one huge city.
So every time a new video hits, I keep expecting to see some bit of El Paso, or identifiable bits of Juarez, in the videos. But it keeps not happening.
This latest video is a quick run down of the multiplayer modes. After watching through it a couple of times it suddenly clicks; This is 25 to Life: Texas.
