Choose to destroy or expand the drug trade in Narcos: Rise of the Cartels for Xbox One. Plot elements from the hit TV series make for immersive gameplay, and turn-based combat with your in-game allies shapes the progression of the story. Have fun exploring the expansive and recognizable map of Narcos: Rise of the Cartels.
Authenticity is at the core of the game experience, and recognizable and iconic characters from the TV show are available to control and play, such as El Mexicano, Murphy, Peña, Primo and more
Narcos: Rise of the Cartels takes turn-based strategy combat to a whole new level with units possessing the ability to move individually one after another or multiple times within one turn, meaning the pace always being ramped up
Choose to side with the DEA and fight alongside Steve Murphy to bring down the drug empire, or choose to side with the Narcos in order to help found, grow, and expand the empire under the watchful eye of El Patrón
Gameplay mechanics allow you to take third-person control of your units in order to engage enemies directly, giving you the opportunity to deal critical damage at optimum moments
Glitchy with no day one patches. Gameplay is so-so and fairly straightforward but computer presets your allowed areas to maneuver. Enemies are too accurate and create mega damage. I played for an hour and ditched it.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Narcos is a decent turn-based strategy game similar to XCOM.
