Über das Spiel

Packender Shooter in Thriller-Manier
El Matador schickt Genreliebhaber in die dunkle, gnadenlose Welt des organisierten Verbrechens. Als Doppelagent Victor Corbet, der seit einiger Zeit für die US-amerikanische Drogenbekämpfungsbehörde tätig ist, müssen sich die Spieler im Dickicht des südamerikanischen Drogensumpfs zurechtfinden und riskante Missionen in den verschiedensten Szenarien absolvieren. So durchstreifen Actionfans, ausgerüstet mit einem riesigen Arsenal unterschiedlicher Waffen, den Dschungel Südamerikas oder erleben beinharte Schießereien in einem prachtvollen kolumbianischen Luxushotel. Dabei ballern sich die Spieler lautstark meist auf eigene Faust, bisweilen aber auch unterstützt von einem KI-Team, durch die abwechslungsreichen Levels.

Knallharte Gefechte im tropischen Ambiente
Der neueste Peter Games-Klassiker El Matador besticht vor allem durch eine authentische Atmosphäre: Detailliert gestaltete Szenarios sowie realistische Physik- und Soundeffekte lassen Actionfans unmittelbar in die hitzige Atmosphäre Südamerikas eintauchen und furiose Scharmützel im Dschungel hautnah miterleben. Des Weiteren sorgt die clevere KI immer wieder für neue und zugleich spannende Herausforderungen, die den Spielern einiges abverlangen. Da braucht es jederzeit einen kühlen Kopf, um den Drogenkartellen endgültig das Handwerk zu legen.

El Matador ist kein schlechtes Spiel an sich, aber man sollte sich den Kauf wirklich lieber zweimal überlegen. Denn das Spiel ist nicht nur ein billiger Max Payne-Klon, sondern hat auch ziemlich grobe Macken und Schnitzer.

- es ist viel zu kurz (3 bis 4 Stunden)
- es hat unfaire Stellen im Spiel bzw. einen stark schwankenden Schwierigkeitsgrad
- es gibt ein paar Bugs (Grafikfehler usw.)
- die deutsche Version ist wirklich erbärmlich geschnitten/zensiert wurden

Ansonsten wie gesagt ein echt billiger Max Payne-Klon.

Absoluter mist aus den 90 er. Jetzt noch zu verkaufen - eine Frechheit.
Wurde von mir als Teil einer Premium Random Box erworben, mit 4 anderen wert- und nutzlosen Spielen wie Golden Swords, Houswife, Shard games und Car mechanic Simulator 2014, vermutlich, weil den Mist keiner freiwillig kaufen würde...
Ich frage mich nur, was sie in eine einfache Random Box reinstecken?

El Matador ist ein 3rd Person Shooter im Stil von Max Payne. Das Spiel ist von durchschnittlicher Qualität und von kurzer Dauer. Was mich trotzdem zu einer Empfehlung drängt ist der günstige Preis und die Story. Klar, große Ansprüche sollte man nicht haben, aber ich wusste was mich erwartet, weil ich das Spiel schon gespielt hatte als es neu erschienen ist. Kein Toptitel aber für eine Empfehlung reicht es.

I played this game back in 2006 and I remember my old PC couldn't run it well and thought I should give it another spin on my high-end PC now.
First of all, you should know that this is a low budget game you can get for $0.60 on sales.
Putting that in mind, El Matador isn't a bad game, but not a great one either.

It's Max Payne in Columbia and it has the exact same gameplay and mechanics.
The problem is that this game didn't innovate anything from there and just kept the same formula.

This game would be more interesting if it has stealth mechanics for example, but it's just mindless action.

- Graphics are great for its time, and the music is good too.

- Story isn't bad, and I can see the devs really wanted to make El Matador with a good narrative.

- El Matador sometimes can be really hard but good thing there's a quick save feature like Max Payne so you don't repeat long sections as you die a lot.

Should you buy it? If you like Max Payne and want something less-AAA then go ahead.

Cool game. Problem is, there's nothing here that helps it stand out. Imagine if someone took Max Payne 2, but made it in 2006 with then modern graphic features and tons (and I mean it) of physics. This would be the result of that. But it's literally only that. The game lacks any sort of charm, charisma, personality.

There are some really fun levels here and there, But the AI is pretty much braindead most of the times, only shooting from cover and exposing themselves to be filled with bullets. The FOV is absolutely trash, and my back hurts from having to keep close to the screen to see where people were shooting from. I didn't find any FOV down solutions, only up the default. Sorry but I'm not here for some Quake frags.

The visuals are really good, would say they still look fairly enjoyable. It has that very mid 2000s PC game feel to it, when developers were having fun with physics, shaders and of course, tons of dynamic shadows.

Bullet time feels like a cheap version of Max Payne 2's. Don't really consider playing this like that most of the times, you'll just die before you can even find cover again. Story is very... confused. There's even one point you end up in some nazi's lair with a museum of WW2 memorabilia and some ''aryan'' dialogue, which felt really out of place in a game about some DEA psycho cop shooting drug lords at every corner. Finale is also really underwhelming, middle of the game fights had more drama and higher stakes than the actual end.

There's a mod on moddb that I used for the last 2/3 levels of the game, that promised better FOV and improved AI. I ended up installing it because the FOV was driving me insane but I thought improved AI would be cool too - FOV was still trash, but the AI actually proved a challenge with it. Unfortunately, this only helped to highlight how bad the bullet time mechanics are.

However, it is quite a fun little thing if you pick it off heavily discounted (as I have) and you want to just shoot some cartels up with tons of physics objects, ragdolls and cool environment sets. Leave the story expectations at your doorstep, and maybe, if you've exhausted other more enjoyable options (such as Max Payne 2, Total Overdose, hell even Hotline Miami and so on...) and you're desperate for anything like these, then this is an option, I guess.

Expected more of the game, but eh, could be a lot worse. TLDR, pick on a sale if you don't have any other games about shooting bad guys up in slow motion. Don't expect an unforgettable game - I'm already starting to forget it.

Oh, and here's that mod I talked about. Try it out if you think the AI is too pathetic.

Graphics are obviously dated, but the gameplay is fun so if you don't mind old graphics and get it on sale, it's gonna be the best 60 cents you ever spent. BTW, I ran this on Windows 10 without any issues, immediately launched without any problems.

If you own a laptop; don't bother. To run the game properly you need TWO third party apps. without them you won't be able to launch the game and if you do it'll run at a buttery smooth 10fps no matter your specs.

BUT if you commit yourself to work a little bit to run it then you'll discover what is in my opinion a hidden gem
It's a Max Payne clone with a cheesy story and characters. The guns feels good and have decent feedback, shooting dudes is satisfying and the gameplay is REALLY FAST PACED (even more so than Max Payne in my opinion) It throws at you a ton of enemies and you can complete whole levels without even stopping running and shooting once.

The gameplay is kinda like Max Payne, except that it doesn't feel good. Like, at all. The shooting is weird and the bullet time doesn't feel satisfying. Enemies will always hit the player, even if he enters the room with a squad. I have no words for the soundtrack, it makes the whole experience incredibly awkward. I expected to at least finish the prologue, but the game crashed during the boss fight and I don't really see it becoming any better.
I paid only 0.59€, but... give it a pass.

I am going to keep this short and simple. El Matador is Max Payne clone during a time where the gaming landscape was littered with them. It does nothing new. The story is cliché. The writing is bad. The voice acting is bad. The main protagonist is a played out stereotype even for 2006. The gunplay is bad. Headshots mean nothing. Bullets are fired from the center of the screen and not the barrel of the gun. This allowed me to cheese the unfair boss fights. Enemies are ghosts that materialize out of thin air. Music is bad. The game is not worth more that the 59 cents that I paid for it.

If this game didn't have such massive performance issues, it might actually have been some mindless good fun.
But the game barely runs at 30FPS and I haven't found a way to fix it.
At some points it runs fine, 60+ FPS, and then in situations that are less demanding on your hardware it barely runs. Perhaps this game just doesn't work well on Windows 10 and modern hardware, because I shouldn't have any trouble playing this game at max and at least a constant 60FPS.

Because of the issues running this game, I can't recommend it. If it ran well, it would've been perhaps at least some mindless fun, but with all these issues. Well it just isn't fun.

Despite this having an interesting premise, El Matador falls pretty flat when compared to other titles in the same genre. It may share some things with Rockstar's fabled Max Payne series but that doesn't help it rise above its own mediocrity.

Gameplay-wise, enemies often seem to have x-ray vision, being able to see where you are even at a distance. Completing a level can be reduced to memorising each person's location, but the feeling you get upon finishing one this way can be oddly satisfying. The guns all sound and look great, and enemy deaths are particularly gory and well-detailed.

The graphics of El Matador have aged pretty badly. Honestly, I always figured despite buying this not long after release that the game looked far older than its actual age. The environment in particular has an overall rather blocky feel to it. The soundtrack is good, but some of the voice acting could use a little work. There's too much emphasis on making certain characters sound South American, and it tends to simply come off as rather cheesy.

Time to complete is roughly 15 hours, with no achievements due to age. El Matador might be worth a peek if found via a bundle, but otherwise I'd skip it. There are far nicer titles around now for this to be anything beyond a curiosity.

Framerate very choppy. Unplayable on Win10, i5-9600K, ASUS ROG Strix Z390-E, GTX1660S, 32GB Corsair 3000MHz DDR4, ASUS Xonar Sound card...even with settings dumbed down to 1440x900. I'll experiment a bit and if the game becomes playable, I will update my review. As of now, I can't recommend it, especially when I can play Max Payne lll with all the bells and whistles on.
