I loved the original, just the right lenth, not to long, not to short...
This game however, really does drag out each mission, and each different mission set.
It gives the character the illusion of freedom, when i first saw it i thought OMG, Miami, New York, AND CUBA!!! 3 amazing locations ready to explore...
I have never been so crushingly dissapointed, when i see new york Manhattan should be there as red. and the rest of the areas around NYC.
each area is boring, and repetitive. grey, or in areas they go in the polar opposite in making it ultra modern, like the set of a Stanley Kubrick film.
The gameplay, driving is twitchy, at times annoying when your in a car chase and NPCs swerve in and around you.
Shooting is very generic, WOW! bang, bang. your dead. they really should find a hook, in the original it was great, aiming for joints, head shots, and getting bonus points for it.
The idea that you can recruit and assign your gang to go places, bomb places, guard places, really hasnt been executed well at all.
Voice acting is boring, as is the presantation, every car handles pretty much the same. and they look the same
And there are so many glitches, on about 20 different occasions FOR A SIDEMISSION! was asked to blow up my own business...and you cannot remove your armour, or bandlodier.
The story, pretty close to the original...dont need to say anymore.
Buy this if you were absoloutly loved the original, or love the film enough to shovel out £20 for it.
