Right off the bat, Scarface does something smart by establishing that it isn't going to be a simple adaptation or an attempt to retell the film in game form. No, Scarface: The World is Yours is more of a concept piece, one that dares to ask the question "What if Tony Montana, rather than being a mercurial borderline sociopath on a seriocomic journey to self-destruction, were a videogame character?"
