What ChangedGame Description
DescriptionThis Grand Theft Auto-inspired game of violence and vengeance begins deep in Maya jungle, where a man named Ernesto Cruz was lost in 1989. The official explanation for his disappearance was fatal overdose, but this is not enough for Ernesto's twin sons, Ram and Tommy. They embark on a quest for truth, though the Mexican wilderness and underworld urban environments inhabited by gangs, drug lords, and dangerous women.

Players can explore the large areas on foot, or commandeer any vehicle they choose. Total Overdose features a fighting game-styled combo system, and smart, skilled shooting unlocks new equipment and abilities. A "Rewind" system allows players to repeat a sequence to nail a perfect combo, or even to turn back the clock and avoid a fatal mistake.

Description
You've just been sprung out of jail and are already on your way to meet new troubles. But, with "rich" vocabulary and lots of weapons in your possession, you're off to Mexico to infiltrate the ranks of one of the meanest drug lords in the area. No doubt you'd rather be somewhere on the beach with pretty señoritas, but that just ain't the case, so let's see how it all started...¶

Your father was
a top undercover agent who just couldn't keep his cover for long. Although quick on the trigger, it cost him his life, and the killer is still to be reckoned with... it was a treason alright. He had two sons, and to make things more interesting, they're twins. One was a D.E.A. agent (obviously, not you) and the other was considered the black sheep of the family (yup, that'd be you), but family nonetheless. However, your brother had a tiny accident and in order to keep his cover from being blown, he got you out of the prison and sent you to complete his mission. Little did he know that you're a trigger-happy fellow which will probably cause him more trouble with his superiors then it might be worth.¶

After crossing the Mexican border, you're off to deal with bad guys... and lots of them. With various weapons and areas to explore, this game becomes somewhat a mixture of Max Payne and GTA, meaning there's lots and lots of slow-motion moves that will help you target more accurately, and you don't even have a counter on them, meaning you can use the slow-motion effect as much as you please. The other thing is that you can enter practically any vehicle that you can find, be it a car, a truck, or a motorcycle, and can utilise that vehicle against the bad guys, or set it on course and jump off it before it hits the target. Such explosions, as well as various stunts you can pull, will automatically be displayed in slow-motion.¶

On one side, there's
a drug lord with lots of protection to be dealt with... on the other side, there's the D.E.A. and corrupt police force to face... and in the middle, there's you, an under-educated, under-dressed, but overstocked-with-weapons dude. It's a total overdose, and if that ain't enough, between story chapters, there are usually bonus missions that add further frenzied shootings and reckless driving.
