4.5 Great game ! VULCANGLOCK | 20/11/2012 | See all VULCANGLOCK's reviews (7) This probably isn't for everyone..... however persevere and you will slowly realise what a great game this is . After the first few cases you may think that the game is going to be a bit 'samey' and therefore tedious but these first few cases are just to get you into the swing of things .As the story developes ( and OMG , does it develop ! ) you get caught up in the whole 1940's genere . The background music is great and the incidental dialogue portrays the attitudes of people in those times with regard to race , social standing etc .One of the biggest kicks I got was thinking that the main character looked exactly like one of the main characters in 'Mad Men' .An even bigger realisation when I spotted two or three more characters from this series -and finally towards the end of the game the actor in the tv sci fi drama 'Fringe' (or lord Denethor in Lord of the Rings ! ). The facial expressions, lip synching and script make this a must buy - especially at this price !! The story is superb . The background story related by B/W flashbacks seemed pointless at first but became very relevant as time went on . I agree that it would be nice to have different weapons available - other than ones you pick up from dead characters . The fist fights are good .Driving is quite difficult at times , but putting on the siren or tooting your horn ( in a civilan vehicle ) helps a great deal .The gameplay map is vast and there are many things I didn't bother doing like finding the hidden vehicles, viewing all the newspapers etc ... Rockstar have done it again and produced a superb game . My only real dislike is the unecessary use of the 'C' word in one part of the game - After 30 years as a police officer I'm no prude - but just like 'Read Dead Redemption' ( probably THE best game ever ! ) some of the language is not needed - It doesn't add anything to the gameplay or story.......If your in any doubt as to how much work went into this game then sit through the credits at the end ( about fifteen minutes worth !! ) andyou'll realise what a vast professional undertaking this was .The only thing I can say is PLEASE Rockstar -- make another one !!
