Once you get over the initial plot details however, it will be a fairly familiar setup to anyone who has ever picked up GTA, with a few differences. Your dealings with the cops are pleasingly more realistic (avoid them, or you will nearly always end up dead), the mechanics of acquiring and moving on dirty money and drugs is actually quite fun, and most importantly- dish out enough well timed obscenities about your latest victim's mother and you will enter 'blind rage' mode. This is every bit as fun as it sounds and can make a real difference when employed at right moment in a gun fight.
There are some great set-pieces (such as Tony's return to freedomtown) which can be frustrating when you first encounter them, but oh-so-satisfying when mastered. The soundtrack's great but I do wish you could add your own tunes to the player as this could have been easily achieved. Tony is usually on hand to chip in a wide variety of naughty words when doing what he does, but if you do get bored try striking up some conversations with the fair (and not so fair) citizens of Miami.
There are some nice muzzle flash effects but not much else in the way of graphical eye candy, nor should you really expect it from what is a port of a 'last-gen' game. But, as stated, the gameplay is excellent and the control system is a breeze. Better, in my humble opinion, than GTA: Vice City, you should certainly give this one a look if you can.
No? Neither did I. Scarface is an overblown De Palma monstrosity of a movie, with Pacino at his most hilarious. But combine that flick with the sandbox gameplay of a GTA clone - and you have a game with enormous scope, gratuitous swearing and hilarious violence throughout. It's the perfect blast of escapism and obnoxious nastiness to make you forget that the UK is under Tory rule for a while.
I'm amazed that there wasn't a Daily Mail campaign to get it banned.
Sure, there are better games, better graphics, etc, out there - but none have a jaw droppingly stellar A list cast than than the voice talents here. Michael York, Elliot Gould, Richard "Shaft" Roundtree, James Woods, Ice T, Michael Rooker, jason mewes, Cheech & Chong, Robert Davi, Ricky Gervais, and more.
That's before getting into the soundtrack with over 100 licensed tracks from a plethora of genres. Judas Priest, Ministry, Fun Lovin criminals, etc
Its the kind of game you can bung on for an hour to progress a bit, or lose a whole evening to if you aren't careful. There's so many missions to do, people to shoot, women to chat up, fast cars to race, pelicans to buy, speedboats to machine gun, drug runs to make, policemen to avoid, that it could literally take months to complete.Read more ›
The general game is good as there is lots to do, sell drugs, build your empire, root out street gangs etc. My only concearn is that the controls are a bit ropey at times(Wii remote tends to wonder off the screen at times) which can be a pain when trying to shoot people.
The fun side is class, tell me how much fun can you have taking a chain saw to someone and cutting them in half????
All in all, if you like the GTA series, you'll like this as is very similar, but in a different way.
The game itself is remarkably solid; voice acting (although not Al Pacino) is of a very high standard. Likewise for the plot, the opening section provides an alternate ending to the film, with the remainder spent rebuilding Tonys Empire.
The map itself isnt huge, but very easy to become familiar with. Theres lots to do; coke to sell, turf to reclaim, property to buy. Although it sometimes feels like all work and no play.
Combat is brutal. Tony can shoot enemies in specific parts of the body. Seeing 'right nut' flash on screen as your target drops in agony is always hilarious.
On PS2 this was a great game, but the Wii control scheme has lost much of Scarfaces appeal. There are adjustment options in the menu screen, but using the Wii Remote to control the camera feels like a bad move. Firefights are clumsy, and I found Tony often faced the wrong way to where/who I was aiming at.
A great game, I just couldnt get past the awkward control scheme.
