  1. For those who dare to tug on the tiger’s tail, prepare for an experience that will satiate your lust for money, power and women while simultaneously entertaining you almost every step of the way.

    It does a whole lot to fix many of the problems with other games in the genre, and it does an absolutely fantastic job of bring the world of Scarface to gamers.
  3. Although it is formulaic at times and some of the set missions such as protecting a boat with a helicopter gunship while it catches sharks for a restaurant are a bit cheesy, the challenge of making more money, spending it and gaining greater power are as addictive as the white substance that makes its way up Tony's nose.
  4. Much thought has obviously gone into the mechanics of translating the film into an interactive experience. [Jan. 2007, p.64]
  5. Plenty of depth, great sound and visuals, copious amounts of unnecessary swearing, oodles of violence and an awesome central character in Tony Montana - it's not quite GTA IV but if you can't wait until next October then you should definitely say hello to this little friend!
  6. Scarface the game is not a classic befitting of the film, but it’s an edgy, uncompromising, sometimes humorous and overall positive offering, which makes the blatant cadging from a superior game series just a bit more forgivable.
  7. There are some questionable gameplay choices and it can be confusing at times, but the sharp script, solid voice acting, and uncanny atmosphere show an appreciation for the source material like few movie games do.
  8. If you forgive it for its flaws, the game accomplishes its mission. You end up with a taste of what it’s like to be Tony Montana.
  9. About as good as movie-to-game adaptations get.
  10. Scarface's attitude is enjoyable and infectious. [Dec 2006, p.94]
  11. Despite design cleverness and an engaging cityscape, there's just no joy here. [Christmas 2006, p.90]
  12. You control territories: It's like a much more fleshed-out version of the gang warfare in "San Andreas". [Jan. 2007, p.72]
  13. Like the film, Scarface is brutal and often ridiculously over-the-top. It uses the GTA template effectively but may feel too familiar for Vice City veterans.
  14. Simply put, the random missions are repetitive and they soon get very boring.
  15. Not awful, but there's not enough crack in the world to choose it over "GTA." [Christmas 2006, p.101]
  16. Once you get over the whole rewriting-the-end-of-the-movie thing, Scarface: The World Is Yours is a competent but usually uninteresting action game.
  17. 60
    Worth a tour if you really loved the movie, but maybe less so if you've already played the hell out of Vice City. We can't really blame Scarface for the familiarity of the setting, but the fact remains that we've been here before.
  18. If you’re into blood, guts and violence then Scarface is not a bad game other than the pretty lame AI.

    The PC version of this game is so terrible that it's unplayable. I can't even successfully navigate through the tutorials, the controls are so insensitive and broken. The mouse sensitivity is such that, in order to pan 360 degrees, you would need to move your mouse -- literally -- across 20 feet of desk space. It takes my entire mouse pad just to get this guy to turn a few degrees to one side. If you expect the options menu to let you change anything besides the screen resolution or the sound volume, be prepared for disappointment. There aren't even any ini files to tweak to make any of this better. This game is an utter piece of crap which has shamelessly capitalized on the popularity of a movie that people loved. I have lost respect for Pacino just for the fact that his name and face are attached to it, even though he had nothing to do with the game other than that. Full Review »
