    How does a respectable company make such garbage? The make groundbreaking games like Metal Gear then make this fake gangsta life game. Im just shocked they put there name on this. The graphics and gameplay are equal to nintendo 64 at best!

  1. Don't be fooled with this brawler's budget pricetag, as its attrocious camera angle, repetitive gameplay and dated visuals makes it a complete waste of your money.
  2. The combat is stupidly easy and as badly designed as MC Hammer's trousers - timing kill moves or complex combos together is rendered fun-free, as you're held by the hand all the way through by giant yellow 'Y' icons that flash over an enemy when he's ripe for a kill move. [Official UK Xbox Magazine]
  3. With a simple yet wholly deficient control mechanic that renders fighting anything but entertaining, a supposed free-roaming environment that's somewhat limiting, poorly executed graphics and characters, and laughably bad sound, Crime Life: Gang Wars is barely worthy of the bargain bucket-and with its reduced price tag, it's almost there already.
