Scarface: The World is Yours PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Scarface The World is Yours is something a little bit out of the ordinary, it’s a sequel to the 1983 movie, and a follow-up that doesn’t actually exist in cinematic form. Those expecting to fill the shoes of a brand new character following Tony Montana’s bloody downfall will be in for a shock, as Montana is actually alive and well.

Scarface: The World is Yours

Playstation Illustrated
5 January 2008
  • Excerpt: Scarface: The World is Yours isn't your typical movie tie-in. Instead of your standard rehash of the film, the development team at Radical Entertainment decided to let the players escape the mansion shoot-out at the end and let the game act as a sequel. Graphically, it is pretty obvious that the team took a lot of care in getting the look of Tony Montana just right.

  • Excerpt: Take the basic gameplay mechanics behind GTA, combine it with a hugely popular movie licence that allows for mature content on the more extreme end of the scale, and you surely have a recipe for success. If the guys working on the game happen to have had some pretty impressive results with free-roaming games in the past, all the better.

  • Excerpt: has its fair share of loyal followers. In fact, as time goes on, it seems as if the movie only gathers more fans from later generations of moviegoers. And when you look at the basic theme of the film, one can only think it would translate beautifully to video games; drugs, power, violence, greed, and a true city of vice in the early ‘80s.

  • Conclusion: I'll be honest; I wasn't expecting much from Scarface. After all it's a movie game, and one based on a cult classic at that. So many things could have gone wrong with this title and even though it mimics GTA it brings enough fresh material to the table to stand on its own two feet. Montana's Balls and the Rage meter really added an arcade spin to the sandbox theme and the atmosphere's undeniable Scarface influence helps things out a lot.

AV Club

  • Conclusion: Like The Godfather: The Game earlier this year, Scarface is about as good as movie-to-game adaptations get, but praise only gets fainter when talking about games-to-movies.
  • Pros: The game's one major advance on
  • Cons: In a nod to the film's most infamous scene, Tony adds a chainsaw to his arsenal, but unless you're within arm's length of an enemy, it's an awkward, unwieldy weapon.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Whilst comparisons with the king of free-form roam-em-ups GTA will invariably be abound this title stands admirably on its own legs. It is rare for a movie tie-in to actually take advantage of its license but thankfully this is one game that does - the Scarface label adds an extra dimension which is not found elsewhere.

10 October 2006
  • Excerpt: Although it's an entertaining and deep game in its own right, a feeling of Grand Theft Auto deja-vu dogs Scarface: The World Is Yours at every turn. It's an ironic twist, considering the obvious influence that the movie had on Rockstar's star franchise, but it's this feeling of "been there, done that" that takes a few bullets out of Tony Montana's fully loaded clip.
