Narcos: Rise of the Cartels Review

To most people, Narcos is the popular Netflix series telling stories of the battle between the drug cartels and the combined law enforcement agencies of Colombia and the USA. It's a series full of raids, shootouts and subterfuge. Lots of actions.

Narcos: Rise of the Cartels is a little bit different. Developer Kuju have blended the TV action and intrigue together with a turn-based strategies like XCOM and chess in a rather entertaining package.

Summary
Narcos: Rise of the Cartels is a decently executed turn-based strategy title. Sure, sometimes it's a bit too easy, but when the enemy moves efficiently it become a dangerous game of cat and mouse. Just be warned that you'll grow attached to your squadmates, and hate if you lose them. This is for you, Ruiz!

Score: 7/10

It seems this game released on Steam today, and the reviewers there say you should forget it. The game seems to include the odd design decision of only allowing you to move one of your people each turn, which seems not to be in keeping with a game ostensibly about tactical combat.

This game looks promising, I was about to buy it, but then I saw the reviews on Steam -- mostly negative…
