El Paso, Elsewhere

Critics Consensus (Play It)

A simple, balanced action game with an engrossing story that brushes against the emotional boundaries of games.

Game Info

Fight werewolves and vampires in a reality-shifting motel. Dive through barricades to escape the grasp of evil puppets. Destroy the villain you loved. A new, third-person love letter to classic shooters. Neo-noir never looked so good.

7.5/10

El Paso, Elsewhere is a fun throwback that tells an interesting story, but the shooting and diving gameplay just doesn’t hold its own.

8/10

El Paso, Elsewhere does nothing new as a videogame – the whole point of it, in fact, is to do everything old. Despite revolving around the nucleus of a Max Payne homage and flatly refusing to flesh out the mechanics of a game from 2001, El Paso manages to transcend its skeletal concept thanks to an arresting presentation and brilliant story. Incredibly written with themes that speak to me on a deeply personal level, it compensates for its weaknesses as a game by simply being a brilliant piece of media.

Its pop culture noir stylings might not be for everyone, but for others El Paso, Elswhere is a cosmic third-person shooter from a forgotten age that will make you dwell on your worst break-up while you shoot werewolves.
