GTA meets Oblivion, but the game is Grandly Oblivious
Yep. Great graphics. If I had a cent for every game that...
Well, the game is big though. Similar to Oblivion. Detailed jungle vegetation from Los Yep I'm Lost to Rio de Where the Hell Am I?
Bah, skip the good, go to the bad.
Whoopee, hope you have time to hear me whining, cause I'm on a roll!
What's wrong with my mouse?
Little issues first. Some really minor issues that should be a problem in the first place. Main menu, want to click on a selection. Hey, my mouse doesn't work? Why doesn't it work, because you have to use the keyboard. Egad, the 21st century and they forgot add a mouse feature for the main menu. Doh. If that isn't a bad sign, I don't know what is.
Big World, Big Graphics, Big Booring
Yeah, the bigger is better phase got really boring if you don't follow the minimal standards of Oblivion. Big is better ONLY if there is a reason to make it big.
In this game, it doesn't make any difference if you walk to the next target or if you fly there. Simply because its just useless 3D landscape. More than once I got lost trying to find my way through the bushes and trees and believe me, any form of short cut in this game gets you lost in El Creepo Jungle. Reminds me why I hate the tropics...and there are a lot of trees and rocks hampering your direction. Crashing into a tree every couple of minutes does tend to get irritating after awhile, some geographical detail would really be better off being excluded. All that geographical detail laid to waste…
Voice acting? Homer Simpson has more personality
And yet we all love Homer. So we have what seems to be a so-called Latin hunk who astoundingly looks and sounds like Antonio Banderas. Though unfortunately for Antonio, the bloke here certainly would get him fired from the movie industry. Latin English has never sounded so ugly and boring. Apparently in this game, good looks are enough to get by in the CIA.
GTA copycat? Bite me
Anyone ever played a copy cat that’s better than the original? If it were, no one would be calling it a copy cat. Hell, they followed a lot of details except the cool stuff:
 Stunts. Remember those? When you jump off a ledge or something high, you enter a slow-mo cut-scene style movie. They have it here, except it doesn’t show for the really great jumps. It does show when you fall off a 2 meter ledge. Doh.
 Things that go Boom! Don’t you love blowing things up? Yeah. If it’s a car, we have to blow it up. But that doesn’t happen very often in this game. Sure you can blow the tires off (which is cool) and the windows and everything else off the car in graphical detail. But when you empty 4 magazine clips to the car’s engine and the car doesn’t blow up, that just doesn’t look right. Don’t know about real life, but when you have a machine gun and a police car, something should blow up damn it! Apparently grenades are the only way you can blow up stuff real fun, but grenades are too easy. Even shooting the fuel tank doesn’t do squat.
 Mini quests. Now, GTA had some really cool mini quests. From killing weird dudes to collecting various car types to a strip garage. This game has one of the boring mini games ever. Collect this, collect that, kill this, kill that. Only problem is, the distance between the areas are irritatingly far. Especially if you crash into trees all the time. And why do you crash into trees? See #4
 If you can fly, don’t drive. Reminds of really bad racing simulation days. I really don’t care if in the real life, cars turn and skid like that. In real life, we don’t use buttons, we have instincts. Not in games, when I want to turn, then turn you stupid car. And don’t freakin skid every time I turn the wheel more 10 degrees. If the driving mechanics were adapted in real-life, everyone would have in accident over 30 km per hour.
 Blow up everything. I suddenly remembered you can blow up stuff real easy. That is, when you have your Agency Jeep. Yep you can blow up stuff. In fact, you can blow up the entire freakin country, since your Jeep doesn’t have an ammo limit. WTF? Seriously dude, what makes a shooting game a shooting game is that you have manage your ammo. Any shooting game that doesn’t have ammo limitations need to get in touch with reality a bit here.
 I am immortal? Ok, we have 10 baddies with machine guns and you with a hand gun. Who wins? You of course. You’re a CIA agent!! And not just any CIA agent, a Latino CIA agent that looks and sounds like Antonio Banderas.
 Get that freakin chopper off of me!! Well the good thing, unlike GTA you can shoot the chopper down with a gun. The bad thing is, some choppers seem to be shooting only at you! Sure, you after the chopper goes down, another chopper suddenly shows up in its stead. Either the developers had a fascination for helicopters but dodging helicopter bullets while out running a tank really isn’t fun.
 I maybe invulnerable to bullets, but I am also road kill. One of the easiest way to die in this game, is by getting hit by a car. Which is ridiculously frequent. Which is also quite stupid since it often happens when you are slowly crossing what seems like a deserted road or during a gun fight. Sure in GTA cars always brake at right time, unless your really asking for it. Though maybe unrealistic, but sure hell is a nice gesture!
The Bottom Line2 DVDs of eye-candy. I don't think even hardcore GTA fans would enjoy this game.
