Great Game!!!

The Good

Captured the atmosphere of the original film perfectly. The look- captured the dark, dirty vibe of 70's NYC. Character are a bit blocky, but amazing to see 25 guys fighting onscreen on a ps2, with no framerate drop, so its forgiven. The sound- Awesome SFX and great city ambience...made it feel like the levels were bigger than they actually were. Fights sounded as violent as they looked... The dialogue- Very harsh, loads of profanity, but didn't feel forced or contrived, like some games...delivered by most of the original movie's actors. The music- dark 70's synths and some licenced tracks from the movie/time period. Very cool. The gameplay- Varied and open at times...lots of mini-games and unlockables! Another great AAA title from Rockstar.

The Bad

Some levels were pretty hard to complete. Game felt a bit short.

The Bottom Line

An open world brawler with tons of style. Totally unique. Go to or and read the full reviews...most were 90's and mid 80's!!!!

Play this game.
