Generation Zero, developed by Systemic Worlds one of their subsidiaries, went on to be known more for its controversial similarity to the artworks of Simon Stålenhag than for being a quality product. Just Cause 4 sold so poorly it failed to recoup its development cost (page 3). Leaving the once-beloved albeit flawed developer a shell of their former glory.

Scarface The World Is Yours review

There’s no way in the world a game like Scarface: The World Is Yours could be made today. Not re-released as a remaster nor revamped as a remake. The game is antithetical to everything Regressive Leftists have turned current day media entertainment into, and it’s filled to the brim with macho men, hot chicks, and lots of politically incorrect content, which is one of the reasons I loved it so much. However, the 2006 outing doesn’t quite hold up as well as it could have due to some janky design decisions. Continue reading “Scarface: The World Is Yours Retro Review: A Game For Chads”
