Scarface: The World is Yours Wii Review
29 May 2010
Excerpt: I loved Scarface: The World is Yours when it was released on PS2 and Xbox, so much so that I decided on the lofty score of 9/10. As tradition goes, if a publisher released a popular game earlier, it finds its way to the Wii later on, complete with for better or for worse motion control. I’m not going to go too in-depth here, lets just say it’s still a great game, although that’s all I’m saying for now. Sorry about that.
Excerpt: A staple of rooms on MTV Cribs, the Scarface poster has been on PS2 and Xbox consoles for a while, but Sierra decided that it's surprisingly entertaining expanded world of Tony Montana would be a good fit for the Wii console. For those who haven't had a chance to play this intriguing little title on one of its other platforms, and are looking for a fix to an open ended world with some great story driven gameplay should take a gander at Scarface.
Excerpt: Gin and Tonic. Chilli, cheese and nachos. Male and female. Films and games. Some things naturally go together. Others can only be be found through experience, and the latter combination is one of them. It’s difficult to say with certainty the last time a game of a film has ever had much of an affect on the gaming scene, and those that do (in a positive way) are usually a blip in an otherwise rather stagnant genre. Scarface is blip.
Excerpt: Tony Montana, one of film’s loudest and most obnoxious icons, had never been recreated into a video game form until last year. Sierra and Radical Entertainment’s Scarface: The World Is Yours was a solid open-world action game whose focus on building a massive empire and being incredibly violent appealed to a lot of gamers. The success of the last-generation original spurred Sierra to move their game to another success–Nintendo’s Wii.
Conclusion: Moving on, Scarface also comes with quality sound production. The voice work is well-done and the game's diverse soundtrack, complete with the movie's song line-up, livens the world's atmosphere quite nicely. However, if there's any one aspect that should keep Scarface out of the hands of minors, it's the voiced dialogue. If you think that the characters of South Park are potty mouths, Tony Montana may very well make those fourth graders look like saints.
Summary: Scarface is a third person action shooter now coming for the first time to the Wii. In a complex world filled with excess and greed, players can take the role of Tony Montana, one of the most ruthless gangsters ever depicted on film. You’re back with a vengeance, ready to reclaim your turf and rebuild your empire.
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. That's what Vivendi and Radical Entertainment thought when they released Scarface: The World is Yours back in October 2006. Despite some less than positive reviews, the game went on to sell in excess of 2 million copies worldwide, and is now available on the Wii.
