Okay, for starters, I need to clarify that the Warriors is one of my absolute favorite movies. I can't explain why, and I feel I don't have to, which further proves my conviction for this film. Cheesy, campy, but awesome.

Which brings me to the greatest video game ever made. The entire cast was brought back to portray the voice acting (and since it was little more than a B movie, it probably wasn't very hard). The graphics are incredible, and every step of the way is a true to form video game version of a very cool movie.

That wasn't very descriptive, I know. Envision everything Rockstar has ever done good. It's Manhunt on steroids, an artistic and stylish San Andreas (the gang factor, no go anywhere do anything). Stealing car stereos, mugging, tagging with spray paint, and breaking and entering are all portrayed by simple "mini-games". The fighting system is akin to Spider-Man; pounding X can work, but mastering all the grapples will be much more beneficial. Every aspect of a great and beautifully done game is great and beautiful.

Gotta give it a 10, only because I'm a huge fan of the movie. Even if you've never heard of the movie, check this game out. It will not disappoint, unless you're expecting San Andreas.

Is there a soundtrack to the game on any vehicle radios?

I saw the movie for the first time last week and loved it. Thanks for the review.

Nah, no vehicles, at least so far. It really is a juiced up Manhunt with San Andreas elements. There is a soundtrack listing in the manual credits, though.

Take a look at the registration card. It's got all the normal stuff and then at the bottom it says "Please tell us, in ten words or less, what is wrong with the world: ____________________"

I'm looking forward to it. I've got it on order but bundled it with Soul Calibur III to save on shipping.

I don't think they brought back the whole cast -- I'm pretty sure that the guy who played Rembrandt died some time ago. Do they give a voice credit for him?

I've heard that there's a 2-player fight-each-other mode. Have you tried that? Is it awesome?

I can't wait to beat up those damn High Hats. I've been waiting for years to do that!

"Jack Thompson" fits in that blank.
