I agreed, part of an ongoing effort to get in good with him, so that he'd make some of his minions available to me when I needed backup.
In the car, he told me about his state of mind, about the horrible things that he'd witnessed in prison, about how he'd lost the will to live. (In general, the character design is good and slightly stylized.
I'm not even close to finishing, but based on my play experience so far, and in talking with reviewers who have finished the game, I get the sense that freewheeling killing sprees will no longer be the main draw. Or if you do get your just deserts, you can simply restart from your last save point and try again.) Our anti-hero is Niko Bellic, an immigrant from Eastern Europe who has done terrible things that he'd like to forget.
This is partly because the central missions and story are so well-conceived and well-written compared with previous iterations of the game and partly because the violence is far more disturbing. Follow the game's missions—he'll do work for the Russian mob, Irish gangsters, the Mafia, biker gangs, Latino drug kingpins, Rastafarian arms dealers, and corrupt congressmen—and you'll commit innumerable murders and thefts to get ahead.
Shoot an innocent bystander, and you see his face contort in agony.
He'll clutch at the wound and begin to stagger away, desperately seeking safety.
Killzone 2 is the cheapest game on the list, coming in at $45 million.
As you'd probably expect from the reputation of the series, Grand Theft Auto IV includes—let's quickly consult the label—blood, intense violence, partial nudity, strong language, strong sexual content, and use of drugs and alcohol.After about 10 or so hours of play, though, I would always start to lose interest in the core story.But while the plotlines have been relatively predictable (if unrepentantly violent and profane), the games' worlds are so large, and the range of activities you can engage in so limitless, that Grand Theft Auto is known less for its game play than for free-form mayhem.Bellic works in crime because it's what he knows how to do, not because he has to satisfy his blood lust.The game's supporting characters are also impressively fleshed out and nuanced.Then I try to rack up a body count that would make Attila the Hun jealous.
