Kingpin: Life of Crime – Review

The so-called mature premise of Kingpin revolves around a fallen gangster who is now out for revenge and domination over the underworld. No heroic macho lead character or buxom heroine here, just a thug out to do no good. While politically incorrect, it's certainly conceptually interesting and has a similar appeal to films like GoodFellas and Pulp Fiction, which also revolve around bad people doing bad things.

Kingpin: Life of Crime – Second Opinion

Make no mistake, this is just another FPS with some great ideas (my personal favorite was being able to assemble my own crew) and stunning visuals that ultimately go to waste.

Midtown Madness – Second Opinion

Midtown Madness is a good racing game and this comes as a surprise because arcade-racing titles like this don't usually translate well on the PC.
