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.

Scarface: The World Is Yours Gameplay Movie 2

    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. A worthy sequel. You get what is advertised - more of Tony Montana. If you want open ended crime gaming, get another game. This is Tony Montana you're dealing with here.
  4. Given the cliché of terrible movie tie ins, I was most impressed with Scarface on that basis alone, but it does become easier to recommend the game when you consider that Scarface: The World Is Yours would be worth a play through even without Tony Montana.

    It may not be perfect, but the combination of movie authenticity, solid action, and exploratory gameplay adds up to one hell of a good time.

    This is a big game, a good 40 to 50 hours long, and those hours are almost all good. But like the over-the-top voice actor gamely imitating Al Pacino, Scarface falls just a little short. [Nov. 2006, p.116]

    Brian De Palma’s film was an indictment of violence and capitalist greed; here they are your primary goal – the developer is relishing in the brutality and profanity and severely missing the point in the process. [Dec 2006, p.123]

    Scarface: The World is Yours picks right up from where the movie ended. Like The Godfather: The Game, Scarface let's you control the Scarface: The World is Yours picks right up from where the movie ended. Like The Godfather: The Game, Scarface let's you control the actions of the man you are playing (In this case, Scarface). The buildings and even Tony's mansion are exactly portrayed as they were in the movie. I recommend this game to anyone who played The Godfather!! Expand

    Great game that doesn't just put you in an open world for the sake of having one. You actually have to think while playing to balanceGreat game that doesn't just put you in an open world for the sake of having one. You actually have to think while playing to balance your cop, gang heat as well as many other things on your way to being #1 again and taking out Sosa.

    Too many cool things to say about this game. Yes it's actually a game not a crappy roam around the world game for no reason. Also it looks awesome.
