though shorter and less hefty, if it had more longevity as maybe it will hearing a considered sequel's on the way, then it will be even more adventurous. But what I witnessed, it just felt natural, like eating organic crap at a health food section. This was an eye opener, beause you know I look at it and i'm like what is this? Then I play, and I'm intrigued, drawn it I'd just like a lil more, that's all. But everyone wants more, so if not, then this is enough to fulfill my need for Grand Theft Auto at the moment

That's a good play. I'm not sure I can add much to what was said above - the graphics aren't superb, but they're not painful either. It's set out in a similar style to GTA - you go somewhere and get given a mission, you complete it and get some cash, then you look for another mission, etc. There are two cities, of which (in my oppinion) the first is better. The first one is much more linear, but at least it has more 'purpose' to it (and less bugs to boot). For instance, the library in the second city is a nice thought: you go there and learn some skill, and the idea is it will help you in the game. However it's not really developed. Similarly it's a nice idea that you can buy facilities in order to fund your illicit operations, but it doesn't really get developed either. There are only two buildings for sale, and you make money by just standing next to them. I appreciate that it probably boils down to the problem of the limit on global flags, but it would have been nice to have a more in depth engine to deal with facilities. Anyway only spotted a few bugs (one of which denied me of 8000 bucks), and I enjoyed the writing so I give it a 4.

I downloaded this game after Commodore mentioned it on the MIG forums. Anyway, this really isn't GTA, considering there are no cars to jack but that doesn't mean the game is shite, no, far from it. It's probably the most decent attempt at making a zzt version of the mighty Rockstar game. OK, it doesn't look pretty graphically but they are bearable and you can figure it out you're walking around in a city. There are buildings you can buy thus money has importance. Points I found to be useless though. Anyway, the gameplay was good for the most part but they do get incredibly repetitve. You know shoot, dodge, shoot gameplay which is SOO zzt. The game isn't exactly long. there are only two cities to explore and each ain't that big. 2-3 boards max. The cool thing about this game is its language. No, I ain't talking about the use of the F word, I mean that each character has its own voice. One may talk in an italian accent while some other character may talk like a rastafarian. You know what I mean. That actually livens up what may have been a boring read. So, I reckon that this game is worth the download. It's a fun game but not exactly bug-free. I reckon 3.5 is a good score. Capiche? Capiche.
