  • Firos Jebin says:

    I really like the commercial feel to this game, it is a very commercial game. (commercial as in the literary sense)...the city, cars, people, cops, cigar smokin and beer drinkin, the inside of the house in the beginning with the crucifix and the pictures. It's a pretty good detailed temporary "escape from reality" just like if you were really into a good book or watching a really good movie.
