  1. With both feet planted firmly in the "So it's not perfect, but it sure is fun" box, Chicago Enforcer manages to be a well done bit of FPS goodness for a nice, cheap price. As long as you set your expectations to a reasonable level, you'll have a good time with this one.
  2. The game is fun to play for a bit, but the flaws of the gameplay and the repetition creep up faster than Capone's top enforcer in a dark alley, delivering the most lethal blow to the game's bottom line.

    The game is riddled with more holes than poor Loose Lips Larry. [Feb 2005, p.89]

    Fails on so many levels. It looks bad, the control system suffers from lag and ineffective weapon designs, the AI is incredibly unbalanced and the missions are a repetitive mix of elements.
  5. It truly manages to re-create what it must be like to be on the wrong end of a mob shakedown, because by the end of the experience, you'll pretty much feel like you've had your head caved in with a lead pipe.
  6. A terrible game. If for some reason you actually decide to go and pay $20 for this very poor excuse of a first person shooter, then expect to find: a weak and very uninteresting story, the absolute worst gameplay ever on the Xbox, repetitive textures and bland colors, and a very poor sound scheme.

    It's like the game was born with cement shoes - destined to sink. [Feb 2005, p.80]

    This game sounds like it will be fun. I will buy because I like FPS.

    This game was utterly horrible, and is the worst Xbox game I've ever played. And this is a review coming from a person who played Drake This game was utterly horrible, and is the worst Xbox game I've ever played. And this is a review coming from a person who played Drake to completion! I also played this game to completion as well, only it was much worse and it makes Drake look like Max Payne in comparison. The graphics look God-awful, there is no music to speak of, the controls are half-way decent but that doesn't make up for the horrible hit detection, switching between weapons is a pain in the ass, horrific 45-90 second load times, a craptastic storyline, and more ruin what could have been an awesome mafia FPS.
