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.
Summary: Scarface: The World Is Yours was a shoddy Grand Theft Auto-style game that was released on the PlayStation 2, PC, and Xbox last year. Now, for whatever reason, Vivendi has decided to bring the game to the Wii. On the surface that's not a bad idea, because there's nothing else like it currently available on Nintendo's platform.
Pros: There are no other Wii games out there quite like Scarface…
Cons: …but that doesn't excuse its poor control, ridiculous storyline, and uninteresting mission design
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.
Summary: If you never got a chance to play the previous versions of this game, the Wii version is a great way to get back into Tony Montana’s world. The unique interface allows you to take control over Tony like never before. Those looking for a solid M-rated title for the Wii can find one right here with Scarface: The World Is Yours.
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.
