Conclusion: THE VERDICT: If you're a newcomer to the series, run, don't walk, to pick this one up. There's a ton of gameplay on offer, and while it feels different to past instalments, you have the benefit of ignorance. For the rest of us, THUG injects little life into Tony's atrophying corpse. You'll be amused for a while, but sooner or later you'll end up asking yourself if this is the best that Neversoft could have come up with. I don't think so either.
