    This game sucks complete a**. You can't move anywhere without getting hit. They ripped Max Payne and made the controls awkward and crappy.

    Ok good/average grpahics... it stops there. I played it for about 15minutes, felt ok, after an hour I was bored. The game reminded me so of Max Payne II, so I ended up playing that instead, even though I know it in and out. End of story.

    Clearly rushed out before being finished, full of bugs and glitches. Uninspiring and unoriginal gameplay, deeply lacklustre graphics, terrible voice-acting. Avoid.

  1. Sometimes, try as you might, you can’t put your finger on what makes a game fun to play, and this is one of those occasions.
  2. Everything about the game is over-the-top, including the story, and in our book that’s no bad thing. Like diving around and shooting bad guys in slow motion? Buy this.
  3. El Matador may be fine to play for a few hours but it's not worth a long-term or full-price commitment.
