    It might be a worthwhile purchase to someone who needs an object lesson in how not to take advantage of the platform, but for anyone else this is just a more expensive version of a game that's been cluttering bargain bins for a while now.
  2. At its worst, Scarface is a clumsy, angst ridden and self indulgent idea with a game tacked on as an afterthought. At it’s best, it is tired, clichéd and derivative.

    Half of me wants to love the game. The opportunity to be Tony Montana, cruising Miami in a Lamborghini, cussing away at "hasas" or whatever Half of me wants to love the game. The opportunity to be Tony Montana, cruising Miami in a Lamborghini, cussing away at "hasas" or whatever he calls them before going into a blind rage with a chainsaw, all while listening to a mix tape of great music. Than somone sneaks up behind me and shoots me in the back of the head. It is not the dying part, it is the inability to just redo a side mission. I find this game hard to manuever and bloated. After a few tries, I was addicted to the Godfather, after playing Scarface a while, I wanted to join rehab. Sorry Manolo, I have to let choo go. Full Review »

    I bought that one at the same time as RE4. Tried both at the same time and after being uncertain about Resident Evil 4's control (now, I I bought that one at the same time as RE4. Tried both at the same time and after being uncertain about Resident Evil 4's control (now, I largely prefered the RE4 controls over Scarface's), I really liked Scarface's controls and decided to go through that one first. I played a bit with it. The mansion part is awesome; a lot of action where Tony as to survive in a linear scripted path. For me that was the best part of the game and that was only the introduction of the story. Once intro was done, the game switches a hard core sandbox game ala GTA. I don't enjoy GTA at all. Having to move around in an open environment to achieve sub-missions isn't story driven enough for me. But knowing that I don't like sandbox games, I can't blame Scafarce for being one. I can see the positive in that game. The controls for a third person perspective a well nailed. The balls system and rage mode are good features. Actually, in rage mode you play in a first person perspective and I thought it was better that way. The graphics are OK, PS2-Like! The audio shines, voice-overs by Pacino and Pacino impersonator add a layer of interest that no other GTA-like games have. Not to forget the huge soundtrack list. It's incredible the amount and variation of songs this game has and the fact that it's fully customizable. If you like GTA and own a Wii, you know that it's not going to happen. Scarface is a great alternative (I heard Godfather on the Wii is another good one). Full Review »
