"Activision may have left for dead one of the sleeper hits of 2012.
Ever since Grand Theft Auto made it’s sandbox splash upon the gaming world a whole console generation ago, many games have tried to emulate its style, hoping to achieve it’s success. Sandbox style has been seen in everything from Simpson’s games to the latest Batman, to a whole slew of series, some of which even predated GTA. All of these games contain variants, making then different from Grand Theft Auto, all while containing the core “open world” element that franchise brought on."
