    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. For those who dare to tug on the tiger's tail, prepare for an experience that will satiate your lust for money, power and women while simultaneously entertaining you almost every step of the way.

    The game manages to almost perfectly capture the feeling of Scarface, and manages to improve on almost every aspect of GTA in the process.
  4. It's over the top, pumped full of action, and Tony isn't shy about dropping a few F*** bombs.
  5. I am truly amazed at the range of scores Scarface: The World is Yours has been getting. I'm guessing the low scores are coming from people who are either rushing through the game or have no prior knowledge of Tony Montana and the movie that inspired the game.
  6. 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.
  7. 87
    It does a whole lot to fix many of the problems with other games in the genre, and it does an absolutely fantastic job of bring the world of Scarface to gamers.

    A true Masterpiece! Usually Video Games based on Movies aren't great, but Scarface The Wold is Yours is an exception. Luckily this game is Backwards Compatible, I say: GET IT! It's a bit rare to find in Europe, but it's definitely worth 20-30€.

    The game starts slowly and the missions get a bit repetitive, but the size and beauty of the World is amazing! You feel as if you're in the 80's. I got the game when it released back in 2006, but I don't know why I didn't finish it. Just picked it up again 3 days ago and I'm SOOO hooked! Played 15h in the last 3 days and have completed the game with 97% completion. I'm going to do the last 3% today. I used cheats near the end of the game because, it gets really really hard during the last couple of missions.

    There are huge frame rate drops and the game would have profited a lot if it had anti-aliasing. I really LOVE the graphical style of the game and the sunsets... wow :)

    Overall an amazing game with sooo much stuff to do 9/10
