    While "GTA" and its imitators keep tongues firmly in cheek, Scarface plays it totally straight throughout - the chuckles come from Tony's increased madness and warped sense of morality, not funny radio stations and fast food joints with joke names. The result is a city full of people that feels genuinely realistic. [Nov 2006, p.76]
