CAN YOU DIG IT!!! Oh Yes I Can.
25 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've been a long time fan of The Warriors. Loved the movie, one of my all-time favorites. From the opening shots I was hooked. The story and concept was executed perfectly on screen. I couldn't take my eyes off the screen.

As for the game, the only word that can describe it is "AWESOME". I've played a lot of games in my life but very few have ever made me feel like i'm really playing that character. And in this game I truly felt like a Warrior.

The game chronicles the exploits of the Warriors as they climb up the ranks of New York gang scene during the late 70's. Rockstar really did a great job of fleshing out the characters. The game takes you through the events leading up to the fateful meeting and shows flash backs of the gang's origins. The extra content seamlessly blends into the original script and really adds a whole new chapter to The Warriors.

The gameplay is very fast-paced and straight forward. The combat is easy to learn and just as easy to master. While at times it can be a little sluggish, and with some unexpected hiccups with the camera, the combat is very visceral. Issuing commands is easy and very intuitive but the A.I. is very smart usually doesn't need any input at all. And just as fun are the side-missions. Mugging, tagging, robbing stores is a terrific diversion from fights. Missions are varied and entertaining but at times became a little tedious especially on the harder difficulties but only on the latter levels. But the good far outweighs the bad.

The graphics, while a little blocky and occasionally rough textured, get the job done as far as feeling gritty and worn. Actually seeing your character get bruised and bled really helps immerse you in the world of The Warriors.

But the one thing the game sells is the atmosphere. As is the trademark of Rockstar Games, the music, design, and gameplay really draw you into the world. And with some of the original talent returning for voice overs, the game becomes that much sweeter. Especially having James Remar come back to play Ajax again(my favorite).

I can't recommend this game highly enough. It's a true gem as far as video games go and if your a fan of The Warriors you simply cannot go without this. 10/10
