As far as Gangsta lifestyle video games go, most of them hit the jackpot. Def Jam: fight for New york was good, Grand theft auto: san Andreas was way better. 25 to life sounds cool, but it's not. it actually demotes the gangsta lifestyle rather than glamorize it.
You play as 3 different guys...Freeze, a thug and drug dealer who wants out of the game for the sake of his wife and son, and as detective Lester Williams, a Cop with only the intention of keeping the streets safe, and as Shawn Caulderon, a gang leader, and freeze's best friend, despite the fact Caulderon treats freeze like garbage.
the game apparently plays out like Socom. i haven't played socom so I don't know. the back cover says "Solid action for fans of socom" According to Gamespot.com, so thats why i make that assumption. Regardless, it's pretty self explanatory. you go around killing cops. sounds bad-ass right? well, if i wanted to kill cops in several fun different ways rather than just shooting them with a pair of semi-auto pistols, i'll play any Grand theft auto game i have. that way i can run them over, blow them up, do whatever i can. besides, Grand theft auto is fun. this game, not fun.
I haven't played multiplayer (due to the fact you can only do multiplayer by the internet) so i can't comment on that. but knowing how many people don't hook their PS2s up to the internet, that pretty much renders the multiplayer useless.
Overall, it's not a bad idea, but if you wanna try it, go to your local blockbuster and rent it. don't make the mistake of buying it, like i did.
