Gameplay

The game challenges the player to make strategic decisions to rise to power and to direct an army of gunmen while fighting. In single-player story mode the player will direct strategic city-wide commands to dominate street-level real time combat. The game challenges the player to handle large territory, adversaries and profit-making opportunities through drug trafficking. In multiplayer mode it pits four players as criminal cartels in a race to gain money and turf. Through turn based showdowns and real time combat each player will manage production and distribution of drugs, build up enough cartel strength to overpower adversaries, conquer turf and rule the Miami drug scene.

Cartels

The game is made up of eighteen turfs and eight different cartels. The cartels are:

  • Lopez - The least aggressive cartel when it comes to expansion, they will try to avoid combat whenever possible. They prefer to weaken their enemy's defense and go in for an easy takeover. Their drug of choice is cocaine.
  • Gomez - The most evil cartel in the game, they will often attack others early and without being provoked. They tend to make brazen attacks on turfs with drug labs as they attempt to quickly expand their turf. Their drugs of choice are heroin and cocaine.
  • Contreras - Nacho's cartel is fueled by his greed. They make aggressive moves in drug dealing and expansion, often employing more pushers than they can protect and controlling more turfs than they can defend. They have no drug of choice, as they prefer to invest in all drugs equally.
  • Diaz Bros. - Led by Alfonso and Edgar Diaz, this cartel likes to maintain a smaller number of turfs with more pushers, so they will not try to expand as aggressivley as other cartels. They rarely attack another cartel's turf unless they have a huge advantage. Their drugs of choice are heroin and pot.
  • Echivierra Bros. - Ronnie and Miguel Echivierra run a very organized cartel, which is fairly aggressive in taking over turfs if they have even a slight advantage. They tend to become more reckless and aggressive later in the game and invest in all drugs equally.
  • Ribera - The Ribera cartel represents one of the best opportunities for building an alliance. They will remain loyal if another cartel helps them out, though will often act in haste when crossed, meaning they will potentially attack even when outnumbered. Their drugs of choice are cocaine and pot.
  • Sosa - Sosa's cartel could be described as the classiest cartel in the game, but is also one of the most dangerous. They are not very aggressive in expanding their turf, but they will not hesitate to attack a turf that is not well defended and will always retaliate after being attacked. Cocaine and heroin are their drugs of choice.
  • Montana - Only players who have proven themselves by finishing Scenario Mode can play as Tony in multiplayer mode. In Cartel Challenge, Tony is unlocked when the player completes the three challenges for each of the other cartels. The Montana moral code is evident; they will seek revenge at all costs if another cartel crosses or attacks them without provocation. Cocaine is their focus.
