    An accomplished homage to GTA games of old with some interesting mechanics. Sometimes less is indeed more. We're going to go the distance with this one.

    A likeable, car chase-riddled sandbox crime spree that updates the original pre-3D Grand Theft Auto games into a more modern play experience.

    American Fugitive is an exceptional open world playground for dumb fun, but it fails to capitalise on that when tailored mission design is brought into the fold. One too many repetitive objectives drag the experience down to a crawl, but for some, the narrative will be just about enough to make it worthwhile.

    A charmingly old-fashioned crime epic, American Fugitive's ambitious intentions are summarily undercut by a raft of poor design decisions and technical issues.

    A new game in the vein of GTA Chinatown Wars is something that should work quite well, but while American Fugitive has some good ideas it fails to deliver on the execution, especially with the Switch version's wonky frame rate. American Fugitive takes the promise it had, prangs it on a lamp post, and gives it a wanted level.

    Crash. Crash. Crash. I can't manage to play for longer then 20 minutes at a time. I've completed only a hand full of mission in several hoursCrash. Crash. Crash. I can't manage to play for longer then 20 minutes at a time. I've completed only a hand full of mission in several hours of attempting to play. It's a base ps4, I don't know if the pro is having similar issues. Fun. The game is a lot of fun, before the crashes. It's on the back burner till an update corrects the problems. And its worth the return. Expand
