Although there have been a number of games that have attempted to capture the Hulk in an electronic format, none of them have really nailed the pure destructive essence and dual nature of the Hulk's condition until this one. It's funny, even though this particular version was created as a tag-along to the much-maligned Ang Lee film, I think the end result was even better than the more recent, free-roaming Hulk: Ultimate Destruction.
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?"

Can one game plagiarize another? How similar can one game be to another before that similarity becomes a legal matter?

You'd have to search pretty far and wide to find bigger Jackie Chan fans than the two reviewers of Midway's latest. Like Chi, I was waiting with baited breath to play this game as soon as I heard it was in development, however since then my interest has waned severely. This was mainly due to the lack of industry buzz about the game and the fact that early demos of the game made it look like just another Final Fight clone with Jackie Chan's name plastered on it.
