In this game you play a former gangster who's just moved back to his old neighborhood. The objec tis to complete missions for members high up in the gang world heirarchy or mob bosses. Completing missions as well as maintaining your character's gang status, sex appeal, fat, muscle, and respect are crucial. If you choose not to follow the missions the extremely open gameworld allows you to aimlessly take part in many activities.
Playing this game is very exciting most of the time. Staying in your own gangs territory is imperative because if you dont you often encounter the opposing gangs is very unhappy with this fact and shows up with guns blazing on you and your crew with cars and gang members on foot making sure you know not to come into their territory again.
The characters in this game are very unique I have never played a game that embodies the "gangster" lifestyle and represents it so well. The characters are very realistic looking and as your character's stats show working out, being appealing to women, looking good, and having respect are all very important. The games story is not too important to me I enojy wandering in the gameworld where I can get my hair cut, shop for clothes, go to strip clubs, take taxi's, fight fires and respond to crimes if I car jack a firetruck or a cop car.
This game is very interesting to play because of the options for game play that are available, mini missions, aimless wandering, or completing missions earning money and participating in gang activity.
Social interaction in this game is the highest level I have experienced because there are so many pedestrians, store clerks, cops, firefighters, strippers, hookers, gang members all that are available for interaction. I loved the fact that I could shoot, hit, or talk to any person I saw or wanted to interact with
