Hey everyone! I got an old but in great condition copy of SCARFACE: THE WORLD IS YOURS from eBay.

Here's a synopsis on the game:

(I iz layzee! :P )

How did I feel about this game?

IT WAS AWFUL!

The play control is shot to hell. I get a damn headache after 10 minutes just swiveling the dam camera around (You have to swivel it around to look at EVERYTHING). The auto target system for shooting sucks, because it only targets what you are facing, not turning around automatically when you lock on in targeting someone. You can't shoot civilians, running from the cops and escaping them successfully is damn near impossible, the driving controls....

Driving in this game is worse than Dick Tracy, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and Grand Theft Auto 4 put together, and I can say that without hyperbole. Impossible to steer, powerslide, or anything else.

The controls are stupidly set up, and good luck configuring them to something better.

The cop and Gang heat is constantly on you, and you can't reclaim your turf from gangs without 1,000 cops converging on the scene and ruining you.

This whole "Alternate reality" where Tony Montana survives the Bolivian hit squad attack on his home, loses and rebuilds his empire was a great concept. But the shoddy play controls, the stupid "Negotiation/intimidation/fast talk the cops meter" are a joke! You can almost never win with them.

The voices sound ridiculous...

So many things you have to jump through hoops to unlock, and the "Contact Missions" are impossible to beat. Ridiculous, too.

I'm gonna resell this thing on eBay. Let it become some other gamer's problem.
