Parents say (6):
Kids say (4):

The first few hours are a profane, bloody blast. The game world of Scarface is huge and beautiful. But as the game progresses, players will find themselves doing little else besides driving through ever-longer delivery missions and blasting through larger crowds of enemies. The environments don't provide a lot of incentive to explore.

In some ways, Scarface rises above many videogames based on movies: It looks great, has hours and hours of playtime, and the action is fast and thrilling. But unlike the GTA games, Scarface fails to create a sense of freedom or sly satire. It is a decent third-person action game with some intense shooting and fun driving challenges. However, repetitive play undermines the entertainment value.
