GodisaGeek: "There are few positives to talk about in regards to the Devil’s Cartel. It manages to be a very perfunctory shooter, with moments of destructive brilliance with Overkill. The average gameplay is let down by the technical issues and lack of ambition in terms of design. Once army of Two was one of the few co-op games on the market, but there is nothing that will grab your attention or make this game stand out above any other co-operative shooter, of which there are now a lot. Rather than developing or evolving the positive points of the past two games, the developers have seemingly taken a step backwards in almost every way imaginable. You could even go as far as saying that they actually removed all of the interesting features from game one and two, which is truly baffling. Take away from morality choices and the two-player skills, and you are left with something very average, and a game suffering from a loss of identity."
