Licensed games still get a bad rap these days and Narcos: Rise of the Cartels probably won’t convince the naysayers. But buried beneath the murky graphics and presentation is a pretty decent and entertaining turn-by-turn tactical game. It plays well and there’s a reasonable amount of strategizing to be had to win each combat scenario. Within the genre, however, it doesn’t do enough to make it a must-play but for fans of the show, it’s a fun but safe time killer.

Netflix’s Narcos series sucks you in and this game just literally sucks. I honestly expected a lot with how fast-paced and exciting every episode is. The video game just went the opposite direction and if the developers are going for another round at this, I suggest they make major improvements.

As far as media tie-ins go, Narcos: Rise of the Cartels could have been much worse. It’s certainly no Iron Man 2. There’s a handful of good ideas and a genuinely fun gameplay base. Which makes the clearly not playtested design decisions and half-hearted customization options that much more frustrating, because there is a good game here.
