Really Bad

what waste of time

This game was loaded with glitches. I got frustrated and gave up long before I finished. It seemed every time I would get half way through a mission, a vital part would end up in the ocean.

The game starts off with a DEA agent getting injured while on a mission. So somebody decides to send in his fugitive twin brother in. The game is fun in the action aspect. You can pull off crazy moves and wall jumps and you have a lot of weapons to choose from. But then you'll find that you run out of ammo way too fast. the graphics could be better and the driving is horrible. every car handles the same. the levels are long and pretty fun but bonus missions are lame and there's just no fun in cruising or rampaging. the game also has some tedious voice acting and the gameplay gets repetitive. the story is semi-decent and it throws in a twist at the end. overall the game is a great rent but that's about it. I give it a 6, out of 10.

This game is a pretty decent amalgamation of GTA and Max Payne with some serious Robert Rodriguez style gun battles. A really great soundtrack accompanies this game and lends to the feel of the Hollywood style gritty action shooter. Voice acting is very well done and the story, while predictable, doesn't totally suck like so many other games. Finally the graphics are decent enough but not as sharp as they could be. I suspect this was done on purpose and the engine looks very similar to Red Dead Revolver.
Overall it is totally a game worth playing and with all the challenges in the city it might be worth owning if you are into this sort of game. Some may call it a GTA/Max Payne rip off...I call it a tribute.
