    Probably one of the most obscene attempts at a gangster simulation game ever. Eidos tried to recreat a GTA style game in a different genre, and wow it didn't work. Don't buy it.

    You might as well play State of Emergency for the PS1 that was released a few years ago. The graphics are just as poor along with the story. Whilst many call this game the best game online; it's clearly lacking any form of structure that a game online needs to earn the 'best' or even 'good' title.

    The single player is boring, arrestingly conventional and entirely forgettable. The multiplayer is slightly better, though mostly because of its options and not because of its gameplay.
  2. 25 to Life is a lifelessly generic shooter that, at times, feels like "Max Payne" without the fun.
  3. The boring graphics, the (mostly) garbage sound, and the obscenely boring story will leave you in a non-marijuana induced daze.
