Game Description: Start out as a hitman, enforcer or getaway Driver -- you'll have to complete missions to earn the respect of other mobsters, plus Don Salieri himself. Deal with rival Morello family while controlling your rackets -- see if you can run all the gambling, extortion, smuggling and prostitution in the city. You'll need patience, skill and accuracy with a Tommy Gun as you fight your way through 20 dangerous missions. High-speed car chases, bootlegging, assassinations, bank robberies and more -- you'll have to do it all and avoid getting caught by John Law. Just remember, your actions have consequences -- don't hit any innocent people unless you want heat from the cops, and don't cross Don Salieri unless you want to wear cement shoes!
Before I get started, let's get one thing out of the way—Thom has said pretty much everything there is to say about this game. Still, there are a few things I'd like to comment on when it comes to the adventures of Nick Kang.
Game Description:The first video game of its kind, Lowrider simulates the American phenomenon of low riding - sprucing up cars, lowering the floor to the legal limit, and outfitting them with major hydraulics, booming sound systems, and detailed artistry to compete against other vehicles in hops, dances and cruise shows. Lowrider enables single and multi-players to compete in tournament and street events in five U.S. cities. Lowrider offers an authentic experience with 18 different vehicles, 18 categories of car upgrades, and a custom paint tool for personalized hood ornamentation.
The PlayStation 2 may be last in terms of this console generations' raw power, but nobody can touch its software diversity. For gamers like me who crave the offbeat and unique, the choices available on Sony machines have spanned an incredible range; everything from the most standard genre offerings to games that are so deeply niche that you can hardly believe someone invested enough time and money to create them. They may not all be good, but I'm glad that they're there. Variety is indeed the spice of gaming, and going strictly by that criteria, nothing's spicier than Lowrider.
Game Description:The Simpsons: Hit & Run propels you on a journey through the myriad streets of Springfield in a racing game with the ability to continue objectives on foot. After Homer notices a mysterious satellite equipped van parked outside his home, he takes it upon himself to discover the truth behind mysterious events happening in his town of late.
Can one game plagiarize another? How similar can one game be to another before that similarity becomes a legal matter? It's a sticky issue, since plagiarism is a literary term, and video games tend to be very short on obviously protectable material such as character, plot, and dialogue. So just how much of a video game's content is intellectual property?
Game Description: In True Crime: Streets of LA, you play as Nick Kang and comb the streets from inside a variety of vehicles as you embark on a series of 20 missions working for the law.
