    Great game, a hell of alot better then socum. if you like grand theft auto gangster type games. and socum controls well this is the game for you. It has poor offline just like socum. But is great online. Highly Recommended.

    its online will hopefully get better once they fix the servers, but single player was boring and they should come out with another game like it but bigger maps.

    I think it was good. The single player is addmittedly short so that didn't impress me (play it to get the things for online). Its' online though was really good, and I enjoy going online on it.

    25 to Life is not at all a bad game. However there are some things that hurts it as a potential. the number one problem is the disconection issue with the games servers. It still has some glitches online that can be fixed with a patch.

    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.

    Pandering to every college student and aspiring rap artist's deep-seated Scarface fantasies, 25 to Life is a 3D action-shooter that not only fails to innovate on any level, but rolls back design and technological advancements to the early PSone era.
  3. A lifelessly generic shooter that, at times, feels like "Max Payne" without the fun.
