  • Summary: In a complex world filled with excess and greed, players can take the role of Tony Montana, one of the most ruthless gangsters ever depicted on film. Highly acclaimed screenwriter, David McKenna, has written an original event-driven storyline for the interactive game that leads the player through a sordid underworld. The Scarface video game creates a gameplay environment that authentically recreates the historical time period of the film, touching on politics, news items and events of the day. Players travel through the steamy, often violent streets of Miami, the irie islands of the Florida Keys, the Bahamas and various other locales and interact with a world full of seedy and dangerous characters to procure information, negotiate business deals, smuggle contraband and avoid rivals and DEA on a mission to rebuild their fallen empire.

    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. 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.
  3. The control scheme is solid and the balls system is an innovative way of rewarding risky maneuvers.
  4. Scarface the game is not a classic befitting of the film, but it's an edgy, uncompromising, sometimes humorous and overall positive offering, which makes the blatant cadging from a superior game series just a bit more forgivable.
  5. Fans of the ultimate guy movie that is Scarface should really enjoy this game, but it doesn't add much to the crowded open-world crime game.
  6. It can feel like all work and no play, but it's work that's professionally rendered, adding some solid detail and feedback to the traditional GTA-style framework. [Dec 2006, p.84]
  7. If this is what like as a drug kinpin is like, we'll stick to our day jobs. [Nov. 2006, p.74]

    The game is way better than I thought it would be. I've spent nearly three whole days playing it now. I've been a huge fan of GTA but Scarface has something special that GTA simply doesnt have and that is a REAL character. Tony Montana is done really well, the way he moves, the way he sounds, all great. Without Tony this really would be just another GTA a great one at that, but with Tony it really beats GTA hands down. I Can't recommend this game strongly enough to all fans of the movie and to fans of open world type game. You won't be dissapointed! Expand

    Not the greatest game of all time, but a lot of fun.

    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

    Too little, too late. This game genre has been done before. Hasn't Vivendi/Radical heard of something called "GTA"?
