This by far is one of the best film to video game adaptations I have ever played!!!
What do ya get when you take a cutting edge, cult-classic film property, and an infamous and very successful game development company with a good track record? You get The Warriors!!! Based on the 1979 Paramount Pictures cult-classic film, The Warriors is a tour-de-force, action-adventure game, which follows and recreates the nature of the film, in terms of the look, the art direction, the music, and most importantly, the Gangs. Twenty-five years after the original film, several of the actors whom were in the film, have left the business, or have passed away.(Notably, the late Lynne Thigpen, who was the mysterious, pouty-lipped DJ in the film)What Rockstar Toronto was able to do was hire most of the original actors from The Warriors to lend their voices to their CGI counterparts, including Michael Beck, James Remar, Dorsey Wright, David Harris, Thomas G. Waites, and of course, Deborah Van Valkenbergh. One staple, in which Rockstar Games titles are well known for is the effective use of licensed music. One of my favorite songs featured in the game is the song, "Shake It" by Ian Matthews. Now for the gameplay! I like the warchief commands feature, in which I can command my set to get down and dirty with bloody results. I also like the use of weapons, particularly smashing a baseball on the rival gang member's face.

In conclusion, I highly recommend The Warriors video game. 5 stars!!!
