great review.

Couple points, the targeting system is more complex than anything in a GTA game, isn't it? Its more like that used in The Godfather, which is a good thing.

It is not at all "unfortunate" that Al Pacino didn't do they voice of Tony Montana, as you say, his "replacement" does a masterful job. Al simply CAN'T "do" Tony Montana anymore his voice is too far gone, chico.

The consumerist, possession-driven reputation mechanic in this game fits like a glove. Tony Montana was, is, and always shall be all about having stuff, man...

There are a couple of occasional glitches, and overall I have the feeling that the game could have benefited from more time to flesh it out (One area it compares unfavorably with GTA is in variety and number of miscellaneous side missions) but this variety was possibly demphasised in favor of polishing the core gameplay, which I can hardly find fault with. It hd a hard deadline to coincide with the release of the new DVD and it kinda shows...

360 owners are crying about the lack of backward compatibility or a native option. I could see an expanded version for the next gen consoles based on the sucess of this one, with more miscellaneous side missions and suchlike...
