I hate to review my favorite games, that`s why I give them 10.
But this one deserves a review because it`s special...

Kingpin is built with id Tech 2 engine (Quake and Quake II are based upon a same code. Doom is id Tech 1). The game has strong mature content, but that`s not all great about it.
Let`s call this came Strife in Quake II engine! You start the game with a intro sequence, the story is nothing special. It`s typical seeking for vengeance.
You can interact with NPCs with Positive and Negative actions. How you interact with NPCs in that way they will respond.
Some NPCs don`t want you to be armed in their presence and some can sell you stuff like the guy at the beginning in the game with Crowbar for 1 dollar.
Some NPCs are mercenaries, you will have to pay them and they will keep your back safe in combat...
As you battle with enemies you`ll notice that game does not play like Quake II at all. Combat is more tactical, you will find yourself losing health rapidly. Dying is also common, even on lower difficulties.
There is also a store you`ll come across like in Strife. You can buy yourself med-kits, armor, weapons, ammo and add-ons.
Add-ons for weapons are really useful, you can upgrade your pistol with magnum and silencer. Silencer adds the sneaky gameplay because you can also go stealth.
Levels are in non-linear fashion with hub system. You have air vents that can serve for sneaking. Also there is a notebook, it`s like that devise from Strife. All missions/quests you come across will be noted so if you forget you can see what to do.
Graphics are awesome in this game. Xatrix used better dynamic lighting from Quake II and dynamic shadows. Also there are lens flares on lights. Flashlight is added to help you in dark areas!

10/10
Awesome and underrated, buy this game. You won`t regret it!
