Scarface The Blue

Scarface: The World Is Yours

Scarface: The World Is Yours is a video game developed by Radical Entertainment and published by Vivendi Universal Games. The game is based on and is a quasi-sequel to the 1983 motion picture Scarface with André Sogliuzzo hand picked by Al Pacino to provide Tony Montana's voice. It was released on the PC, PlayStation 2, and Xbox on October 8, 2006, and on the Wii on June 12, 2007. The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game were officially cancelled.

The game

Scarface: The World Is Yours begins in the last scene of the film, where Tony Montana is being attacked by Sosa's assassins. After the famed final shot is fired, the player takes control of Tony, who then kills all the assassins. His last surviving men inform him that the Police have arrived and raided the mansion, causing Tony to escape through an underground passage. He arrives in an undisclosed location, and begins making his recovery from the assassins' attack.

While recovering, he reminisces about the mistakes that he made while admitting he has a cocaine addiction. From that moment on, Tony goes cold turkey and vows to get revenge on Sosa. With his drug empire in shambles and his assets seized by the authorities, he must start from the bottom once again and rebuild his empire to get his vengeance. The game then starts on Tony's new path to glory - kill many of Tony's competitors, and finally raid the mansion of Sosa and kill him. The player makes contacts, friends, and sets up accounts with banks to launder your money, though this in itself takes a percentage of it depending on how far the player is in the game and how good his negotiation skills are.

The game has customization abilities and this can be done in various ways: changing outfits, buying cars, customizing the mansion through themes and also replacing the mansion with exotics, furniture, girls and other rare items (which, through a glitch in the game, always eventually disappear and have to be re bought, except for the Unique Collectibles items that can only be bought once).

Early on Montana buys his mansion back from the authorities and the game allows a great deal of customization. The player buys and deals his own cocaine using a mini game with which you try to get more cocaine for less money, and sell a gram of cocaine for more money. Novice players will end up losing money by buying expensive and selling cheap. The banks are used as the way to save and launder money, while also acting as save points.

Plot

The game takes place during the ending of Scarface, albeit on the alternate premise where Tony was able to avoid being killed by the assassin and instead kills the assassin. Forced to fight his way out of the mansion, he fights off Sosa's assassins and proceeds to fight his way out of the mansion. Sosa was contacted his men on how Tony's empire is no more and now the empire was split to pieces. Tony swears off cocaine and makes a vow to make up for his mistakes. This is where the game begins.

Tony decides to contact one of his former lawyers George Sheffield, the Vice decides to cut Tony a discounted deal to give his mansion back to him (albeit at its ruined state). After a reunion with one of his dealers Felix, Tony began rebuilding his empire. The first task is to make a new bank account which will be monitored closely by Vice if he steps out of line with the cops as well as stealing a satellite phone from Gomez's personal thug to make calls back to his thugs to deliver his car or to call his henchmen or just to make delivery calls.

To reclaim Miami as his, Tony reclaimed Little Havana as his first step and runs a few errands in exchange for rights to buy fronts for his drug distribution. After reclaiming all but the Havana Storehouse, he decides to have a drink at the Babylon club where he was attacked by Diaz assassins again. To make things worse, the Diaz brothers sent hitman to kill the final connection of his family: His mother. In a blind rage, he killed the Diaz Brothers and took their storehouse and their cocaine shipment.

Tony was able to get back his prestige by then, even buying Manny and Gina's cremated remains to remind him of his past mistakes as well as renovated the mansion. At that point Sheffield sent a delegation as he flees to Bolivia as he betrays Tony and tries to get him killed using the possibly of finding Elvira. He was able to survive the assassination and began retaking Downtown. Turning mainland Miami to his own piece of land, he now needed a loyal distributor to provide him with larger keys of Cocaine. He receives a deal with the Sandman who wanted to see Sosa fall as well. The Sandman also directs him to Venus who gives him a lead to Nacho's Casino Tanker. He then kills Nacho and claim his tanker of Cocaine for future distribution as well as some immigrants who wanted to head to America and their leader.

After taking North and South Beach from Gomez, The Sandman was attacked by Ortega Cartel's thugs and Tony help mount a counterattack to drive them out and receives a stable shipment of Cocaine in exchange for his effort. With his empire in firm control. He decides to hunt down Sosa in Bolivia.

The final battle Bolivia was an all or nothing assault as he kill his way through Sosa's thugs as well as Sheffield and Gaspar Gomez who both died facing Tony. With only Sosa in his way, Tony guns him down and returns to Miami as a lone surviving thug begs for mercy, Tony decides to hire him as a butler instead and in the end the world was now truly his.

Development

The game was originally developed exclusively for the PlayStation 2, but ended up being ported for the Xbox, PC, and later the Wii. Cast members of the original movie lent their voices to the game, including Robert Loggia, Steven Bauer, and Al Israel.

The commercial for the game featured the Mötley Crüe song "Kickstart My Heart", although the song was not in the game. However, the band's drummer, Tommy Lee, played the role of the manager of Fidel's Records and Tapes

Reception

The game has received mixed reviews. Metacritic reported 78% of critics, out of 48 reviews, for the Xbox version of the game. IGN gave it a review of 8.7/10, making it an Editor's Choice game, and Game Informer awarded it 85%. However, a small number of reviews have been less favorable, with GameSpot only giving it 6.6 out of 10 and the G4 TV show X-Play giving it a 3 out of 5, and OXM giving it only 4.5/10. The PS2 reviews have been very similar to those of the Xbox, with the 80-90% range dominating but several notable sources voicing dissent. The PC version had been released with several bugs, especially in controls and map loading systems, thus giving the game mixed reviews, but with a similarly respectable average score of around 72-75% in Metacritic and GameRankings. Gamespot gave the Wii version 5.8 for what they thought was a poor control method, while IGN gave it an 8.7, praising the new controls and saying that it was the best version of the game available, scored slightly lower only due to its late release and nature as a last-gen port.

According to Game Informer and Vivendi Universal, Scarface: The World Is Yours sold over a million copies in North America, Europe, and Australia. The game has sold over 2.5 million copies since launch.
