I walk away from that trailer wondering about two things. One, how can a pistol have the zoom level of a sniper rifle? Two, why are Cartel members shooting at you with two pistols akimbo? Unless they are being played by Chow Yun Fat, in which case it goes from stupid to awesome.
The ZAP is exclusively available as a pre-order from Best BuyCall of Juarez: The Cartel
is due for release July 19th in the US and July 22nd in the UK.
