a new game from eidos and some other people you never heard of

think of it as Max Payne stunting, with a Punk Rock esque main charactor, taking out drug cartels in mexico, with GTAesque drivable and blowupable vehicles

thats total overdose, and over the top game coming fall 05

grab the demo if not just for a few minutes of fun

i enjoyed alot of it, except it falls WAY short in 2 areas

graphics, they look like max payne 1, except for some ok particle effects

and sound, oh man, most repetitive soundtrack/dialog ever

but check it out, if nothing its only a 260mb demo

it looks cool in the beginning but the vehicle controls are bad. the bike cant be used if it goes upside down it stays upside down like it was frozen or something. and its pretty much allways the same, stunt shoot boom, kill death rewind.

the vehicles arent muct to speak about. some different cars and a bike. thats all.

id give this a 6/10. Stick to sa instead.....

yeah, just something to pick up and burn 2 hours during the good-game-drought we're experiencing

It's also a demo. I wouldn't expect EVERYTHING to work.

It's a knock-off of GTA that has slow-mo Matrix moves for no reason. I tried it, it was real buggy, and more than likely that's what the end product is going to be as well.

It's a nice idea and interesting format, but not that well executed.
