  1. The online portion of 25 To Life isn't bad; it's not deep by any stretch nor does it look particularly wonderful, but you and your pals can run around the city and shoot each other online and I bet some of you will really like it.
  2. It's not completely without merit, especially if you are able to find a few friends online to play with.

    If you have Live, this can be an incredibly enjoyable game once you get used to the profane and immature nature of players that frequent the lobbies.
  4. Boring, boring, boring. It's like a life sentence unto itself...only you can control when it ends by hitting the power button.
  5. You know the drill: extremely linear level designs that stitch together corridors, open areas, and dull objectives with all the refinement and subltlety of a drunken quilting circle. [Mar 2006, p.100]
  6. 25 to Life is a lifelessly generic shooter that, at times, feels like "Max Payne" without the fun.

The one downside of it is it's too short. ratings would be better if it was longer. it's reccomendable to any shooting players who like to play live. Full Review »

    There is really nothing wrong with this game. I don't know why people hate it. The only flaws I see in this game is that the single There is really nothing wrong with this game. I don't know why people hate it. The only flaws I see in this game is that the single player is short, sometimes it takes too long to start a multiplayer match, and there is some lag. Thats all I see wromg with this game. The soundtrack is good,the game has a lot of weapons, I think it is cool that you can play as a cop or a gangster, and its pretty cool that it comes with a bonus disc that is a soundtrack with the music from the game on it. I would recommend this game to anyone who likes shooting games. Full Review »
