Pure concentrated fun (and laughs)

This game really is like Grand Theft Auto crossed with every 80s game, and pulls it off amazingly. The funfactor, mission variety, writing, and overall flow (no Fake Longevity here) are just plain excellent. Then you get past the main quest, the honeymoon's over, and you realize there isn't so much to do after 4-6 hours. Doesn't matter though, because the main quest is just that good, and something I'll be playing over again. Also, getting medals in the rampages and high scores in the arcade games is still some good fun.

I guessed this was going to be another one of those "good in some ways, kind of lacking in other ways, people like it for the gimmick" kind of indie games and was way off. Going by a $10 price point, 4 out of 4 stars.
