| Not the best shoot-em-up, but fun to play
This action-packed game is violent, bloody, vulgar -- and fun. The object is to complete many odd jobs for local crime lords in the United States and become a very popular criminal. Popular criminal? Along the way bump off a few innocent pedestrians, steal cars, and shoot as many cops as you can. If you're really good, you can practically get away with murder. Let's not skip on the weapons. Choose from a machine gun to grenade launcher or a flame thrower. What's really funny about this game is the excessive use of foul language. (That explains the M-rating.) On occasion, a pedestrian will call you a "piece of sh--." The biggest weakness is the graphics: third-rate and out-dated. They could have done better. Other than that, a really fun game if you don't mind redundant gameplay and age-old graphics.

My evaluation: 7 out of 10
