Summary

Console port to Windows...BAD

The Good

Man, what is there to like? Hmm, well if you like Grand Theft Auto, then you might like this game. It's straightforward killing people and destroying property. It also makes a good beer coaster when you're done playing too!

The Bad

Every single aspect of this game is downright bad, from the clunky controls to the graphics and the storyline and the repetive-ness rounds out the overall tone of the game. It's definitely a console only version, don't know why they port it to the PC, it was not meant to be on the Windows platform. Though the system requirements are pretty high, but the graphics turn out to be jaggies and the game skips alot even on my high end system. The voice acting is horrible, you mix southpark sounds with a terrible soap opera and there you have it...Controls suck too unless you have a gamepad, and replayability is only for people that need to reduce stress levels by mass killing.

The Bottom Line

It's a great bargain gift for the person you don't know or hate, since this is a relatively bad game. It's a console port to Windows and therefore it sucks....if you want a good console port game, just play Grand Theft Auto 3!
