Game Revolution writes: "From the moment I picked this game up, the voices of people criticizing it popped into my head... "This is horrible!" "This is wrong because it's so violent!" And after having played it, I realize what they're talking about, and yet I know that I haven't played a game that is so finely tuned in ages. The overwhelming love for this franchise by the dev team is obvious. Too many people are offended by this series' content to find out just how great it is. I was originally hoping to find a game I could beat up like a rival gang member, but I can see instead that we're all on the same side here".
