  • Summary: In a complex world filled with excess and greed, players can take the role of Tony Montana, one of the most ruthless gangsters ever depicted on film. Highly acclaimed screenwriter, David McKenna, has written an original event-driven storyline for the interactive game that leads the player through a sordid underworld. The Scarface video game creates a gameplay environment that authentically recreates the historical time period of the film, touching on politics, news items and events of the day. Players travel through the steamy, often violent streets of Miami, the irie islands of the Florida Keys, the Bahamas and various other locales and interact with a world full of seedy and dangerous characters to procure information, negotiate business deals, smuggle contraband and avoid rivals and DEA on a mission to rebuild their fallen empire.

    With all that is found through out Scarface: The World is Yours, there is a huge amount of things to do and more action than you can shake a stick at.
  2. Radical Entertainment did a wonderful job not only keeping Scarface close to the source material, but also creating a sequel to a movie that was never going to see a sequel.
  3. A worthy sequel. You get what is advertised - more of Tony Montana. If you want open ended crime gaming, get another game. This is Tony Montana you're dealing with here.
  4. There are flaws with the Heat meter and Balls system (yes, Balls system), and the graphic engine could've used some more polishing, but the game has hours of entertaining chaos to spare, and it nails down the movie's atmosphere and Tony's attitude perfectly.
  5. 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.
  6. This is a big game, a good 40 to 50 hours long, and those hours are almost all good. But like the over-the-top voice actor gamely imitating Al Pacino, Scarface falls just a little short. [Nov. 2006, p.116]
  7. Brian De Palma’s film was an indictment of violence and capitalist greed; here they are your primary goal – the developer is relishing in the brutality and profanity and severely missing the point in the process. [Dec 2006, p.123]

    Good gameplay, atmosphere, graphics, sometimes FPS view, good music, but dumb AI. This accounts for the 2006 games. Playing the game throws a lot of interesting quests, a lot of car, etc.. The atmosphere of good music is good and the film has the feeling. When you have less life, you become a FPS view and shoot him a bunch of people (without, however, TPS view). The AI ​​is a bit stupid, 'cause we can not kill people in the streets crawling with (I remember). The game is worth 9 points I think. In addition to Driver Parallel Lines, the Godfather of one of the best games of 2006. Expand

    I found the game annoying to play. Missions were annoying especially when it tells you to do two different things at one time. "Lose the cops" "protect so and so" flee the cops fail the mission protect the person you risk getting screwed by the cops. Lost a few good lump sums of money and drugs because the game messed up. Driving and targeting is great but I rarely play the game now because the programming sucks. Expand
