Rock 'Em, Sock 'Em, Ultra-Violent Video Game Action!
11 December 2001 | by fandangonoirSee all my reviews

Kingpin qualifies as a flawed masterpiece in the world of video games. The load times are a nightmare and there are a number of places where it makes no sense. But all in all it is a satisfying first person shooter.

The unreal level of blood, brutality, gore, and out and out foul mouthed profanity is at times beyond belief. There's a nice touch where you can question game characters in the game and sometimes even intimidate them with threats of badass vi-o-lence! The game's also darkly funny at times. A cut scene where the main character is given a lift and how he pays the driver had me laughing my arse off! It was sick but funny as hell!

The makers of this film have seen the flick Pulp Fiction many times. And you can see whole scenes and lines lifted from the flick in Kingpin.

The Cypress Hill soundtrack is good for what little music they provided that is. They do some character voice work here and there too.

Be sure to download yourself a patch to fix the games many bugs and let everyone pray that a Kingpin sequel is in the works! C'mon Drew Markham! Show us one more Kingpin, brother! Kingpin: Reloaded. How's that for a sequel title? It sounds like The Matrix sequel title on purpose. I figure if Pulp Fiction influenced the first Kingpin, The Matrix seems like a good choice to influence the sequel! Kingpin: Life of Crime meets Matrix style action.
