Scarface: The World Is Yours review

Exacting revenge ain't for the weak - Tony Montana is back (again) and this time, he's really pissed

Pros

  • Inventive weapon controls
  • Scads of things to do
  • Superb voice acting and music

Cons

  • Often brutally difficult
  • Missions can blur together
  • Constant swearing wears thin

Last year, Scarface: The World Is Yours caught just about everyone by surprise. It turned out to be a damn good game, sold like crazy (having moved over two million PS2 and Xbox copies to date), and set a world record for the most profanity and drug trafficking in video game history. Continuing with the didn’t-see-that-coming approach, Vivendi has now released the hyperviolent and decidedly non-family-friendly game on the happiest console on the planet – Nintendo’s Wii.
