  1. The gameplay, the story, the graphics, the music, the voice acting ... it's all imbued with such a central sense of style that the game just pops.

    Excellent. It is frantic, funny and violent, but in a good way. If you like "GTA" and "Max Payne," you will love Total Overdose. [Oct 2005]

    The game's exploration elements are a little underwhelming, partly do to the fact that the vehicles aren't really all that fun to drive. It's also quite linear, though that hasn't really hurt many other titles in the past. On the flip side though, it's overall style makes up for some of these lackluster elements.
  4. The game's audio, variety of weapons and moves keeps you interested for a while, but the game isn't that long and is very repetitive, which certainly kills any buzz you originally had.

    Total Overdose doesn't take itself too seriously; and you shouldn't either. It's a fairly solid action game that puts the emphasis on style.
  6. 65
    While substandard scripts and voice acting can be forgiven, when someone pays upwards of £30 for a game lasting ten hours maximum they do not expect to be faced with fiddly controls or to be confused by poorly thought out level structures.
  7. Cheap AI, lame graphics, dull gameplay. It's all there for the suffering.
