What do these ratings mean?

So I picked this game up with a comparative mentality. Games like Just Cause, GTA, and Mafia 1 itself has been put into reference in order to analyze the quality of this game, and I must say whatever it lacks, it makes up for it.

Like agree with Chris Hudak who reviewed this game. It is very very linear. I was so excited at first, seeing pubs, car modifying shops, gun shops etc. I thought there would be more to do freely as the game progresses. But a few missions in, I realized that you don't really do a lot of things freely. Sure, you can walk and drive around the city to your hearts desire, but all there really is to it are the missions itself. That is all.

But like I said, what it lacks, it makes up for it. Even with a linear plot, you can't help but feel engrossed in the story line. Very good and witty voice acting. You would really feel for the characters, and the graphics are very gorgeous. The game is also action packed with tons of guns each and everyone is really fun to use. The cars are fun to drive as well. Too bad they don't have motorcycles.

But compared to GTA and other free roaming RPG games, this one falls short in terms if content. The game is very short. You can finish it in about 10 hours if you really try. But you can replay and look for some really nice Play Boy posters if you like. But other than what I've said that's it. Don't expect a game with a lot of things to offer. Cops are ineffective, people in the city are just boring, and the options that try to introduce free roam isn't really about free roam.

But its all about quality over quantity. What it lacks in lettuce, cabbages, mayo and ketyup sauce, it makes up for one really nice big juicy hot dog. Of course it would be nice if it had some sauce, but hey, the hot dog still tastes great.

I would have given this a B. But compared to the better free roaming RPG games I've played, Its no challenge. And lastly, I really really like Sauce in my Hot Dog. 87)
