Sometimes, gamers are very difficult to get a good game that’s licensed especially games based on the film. In general, it’s also very rare to find a good game based on the movie because there are more bad games out there. A few years later, Scarface: The World Is Yours comes out with a lot of expectations that gamers imagine. Even more than good to be called the best game of the year because it’s very rarely the first game that issued a game with the theme of an open world like Grand Theft Auto. However, Scarface: The Wolrd Is Yours can be played with a system that’s fulfilled in it like Grand Theft Auto, and this game’s also an adaptation of a movie titled the same. The result brings the gamers into a deeply felt experience with a few original ideas that offer players more sense in it.

“Scarface: The World Is Yours,” is an adaptation game titled same as the movie. Only, the background story was taken at the climax of the film where Tony is surrounded by a subordinate of the king of drugs called Sosa by breaking into his mansion. If in the movie Tony didn’t survive, then in this game Tony managed to escape from the siege of the enemy. After that there was nothing left, his family had gone, and also his best friend. He had to travel all over Miami, the Bahamas, and others in order to take revenge on Sosa by rebuilding his ruined kingdom.

Scarface Tony Running On

The background of the story taken this game is actually much different from the one in the film. Only, it seems this game tells a different route in the movie. If at the end of the movie Tony Montana died in the enemy siege inside his mansion, then this game takes the background of Tony Montana managed to escape in the siege of his enemy. Scarface presents us a game that’s not much different from Grand Theft Auto although the characters that exist in this game just appear in it. We play as Tony Montana who’s also the protagonist in the movie. It seems that Scarface’s improving inside for open world like this. We go around the city to take a city expert and make our men receive the drug in it. Although the story presented in this game looks simple, Scarface: The World Is Yours is a gameplay experience that we can feel and features that are really interesting inside. The purpose of this game’s to rebuild the mansion that has been destroyed by the first story. When playing this game, little by little the ability of Tony will be rebuilt and can revive his mansion again. Our disappointment arose when knowing that this game isn’t filled voice by Al Pacino as the main actor in the movie as well. However, André Sogliuzzo has tried so much to accent, the dirty words he often pronounces, so his voice that can be spelled a bit like it all is pretty good even though there’s little lack therein. Animation presented in this game’s already perfect featuring Tony Montana is almost similar in the movie as well.

Scarface Mansion

One of the features presented in this game is also fairly interesting and experienced an increase in it is a skill called Balls meter or rage meter in general. This Balls meter is a skill rage that Tony did by killing some enemies or creating some chaos while playing this game. By shooting some parts of the enemy’s body like head, hands, feet, etc., we will get Balls as well as useful taunting to increase the Balls meter. When the Balls meter is full, the player will see from first-person with unlimited bullets to invincibility. You can use this skill by causing chaos to full blood will make us become crazy about Balls meter. Balls meter also uses a lock-on system where the target will lock itself from the player so you can shoot in any direction. This game uses a free control system like the game Max Payne or other third-person games, allowing players to see freely around and can see easily where the enemy will appear.

Scarface Gang Heat

Scarface is a game where you can perform an action that raises a lot of blood in it. You can buy a property that’s useful for doing drug transactions in it, take a warehouse that is useful for doing more drug transactions from one island to another island and hire useful goons to protect the players. All of that’s also controlled by the phone menu feature, where this system you can buy a car, increase your empire to know the area that hasn’t been taken by the player. The other system available in this game is the Heat and it also goes with the gang and the police. The higher the Heat meter, the higher the fugitives of the players so you will often find enemies who are looking for the player. You can pay them by using the phone. One feature that succeeds in getting its players annoyed or someone likes it’s a system where you are being chased by police but not just a police chase. If you are temporarily pursued by the pursuit of police, two meters will be seen on the screen. The first meter is the meter where you should be able to escape as quickly as possible. The player must be able to get out of the radius on the radar in order to escape in a police chase. Another meter is a meter where the entire map is surrounded by many police officers. This meter’s red so you should be able to escape as soon as possible in the pursuit of the police because if the meter is full, you should surrender it.

Overall, Scarface: The Wolrd Is Yours is a very fun and addictive game to play. This game can actually be quite good for open world game like this although there are only a lot of flaws, especially on PC. Scarface has brought a wonderful experience to the world of Scarface even though some people also consider that this game’s not completely perfect. A game that will never be forgotten for those who have played it as a child until now still want to play this game.


Movie – Scarface [REVIEW] – The World Is Yours

IMDB Rating: 8,3/10
Genre: Crime, Drama
Director: Brian De Palma
Writer: Oliver Stone
Stars: Al Pacino, Michelle Pfeiffer, Steven Bauer

I played the game before on PlayStation 2’s, Scarface: The World Is Yours. The game model is exactly same as Grand Theft Auto. However, this is more exciting than Grand Theft Auto. Although I was finished, I still play it even on my PC. The movie also I watched when childhood. However, when compared with the game is very different. Scarface: The World Is Yours is a sequel to the film.


“Scarface,” tells about the year 1980 in May. Fidel Castro has just opened a port of Mariel in Cuba. His goal is to gather his members with his relatives in America. Recorded 125,000 Cuban refugees arrived in Florida and among them 25,000 criminals. Antonio ‘Tony’ Montana (Al Pacino) and his friend Manny Ribera (Steven Bauer) get permission to stay in Miami after successfully killing Rebenga (Roberto Contreras) for Omar Suarez (F. Murray Abraham).

Omar then asks Tony to trade cocaine with a Columbia merchant and Tony manages to do so. Tony brings the money and cocaine at once. Tony and Manny then had the opportunity to meet Frank Lopez (Robert Loggia), a drug dealer and Omar’s boss. Tony also fell in love with Elvira Hancock (Michelle Pfeiffer), a Frank woman. Frank eventually recruited Tony and Manny to become his members.

Movies mafia indeed no longer underestimated its existence. Especially the actor is Al Pacino. Al Pacino acting in this movie is very cool. Describes a very arrogant, cunning, evil, and criminal nature. Al Pacino is the main actor in this movie. So do the supporting actors like Steven Bauer and others. However, Al Pacino is the main star. Al Pacino was interviewed in another talk show. He was asked, “Who is the character of the film you have ever played and which one of you favorite the most?” Al Pacino replied, “I prefer to play Tony from Scarface.”

Although this is a classic movie, this film portrays a real human is. Tony is described as a greedy person and always wants something more. Scarface shows that no matter what human behavior, humans are still blessed to love those around them. However, Tony here just assumes that all can be solved with money.

Machine Gun

This film is purely a lot of the ‘F’ word in it. Probably countless, similar to the Goodfellas movie that many say ‘F’. However, this film teaches us that money never solves the problem. In fact, the happiness and togetherness can’t be bought with money. The happiness is only in the hearts of every human being, however our circumstances and wherever happiness is always there and never replaced with money.

Overall, this film in all aspects is very good indeed. Starting from the theme of lifting drug dealers and a little mafia theme until the lessons we can take from watching this movie. Al Pacino is the star of this movie.

Movie – Pulp Fiction [REVIEW] – I Don’t Smile For Pictures

IMDB Rating: 8,9/10
Genre: Crime, Drama
Director: Quentin Tarantino
Writer: Roger Avary
Stars: John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Samuel L. Jackson

During this time, only a few Quentin Tarantino movies I watched like Inglourious Basterds, Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill Vol. 01, and this movie is also included. But, this is a masterpiece made by an intelligent director. How?

Travolta & Jackson

“Pulp Fiction,” tells about of two hitmen (Samuel L. Jackson & John Travolta), Mafia boss (Ving Rhames) and his wife (Uma Thurman), a boxer (Bruce Willis), and two novice robbers (Tim Roth & Amanda Plummer).

Actually, it’s very short to explain what’s going on in this movie. In fact, the description is too short to write. But, what makes this film so masterpiece? For some reason, this movie won a lot of awards like Academy Awards USA in category “Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen,” Golden Globes USA in category “Best Screenplay – Motion Picture,” BAFTA Awards in category “Best Actor in a Supporting Role,” and “Best Screenplay – Original.” This film also beat the best film, Forrest Gump and many people are mad at that fact. I feel sorry after for 23 years just found out if there is a movie like this in that year. Same goes with Forrest Gump, The Shawshank Redemption, and other classic movies.


One of the uniqueness of this film is the plot of the film that runs in nonlinear. Just like Memento, Pulp Fiction is divided into several parts and runs in a row. However, the film isn’t so confusing to watch. In general, Pulp Fiction is only divided into three parts. This movie seemed to cause the prejudice to be a sense of shock but amazing.

The characters in this movie look very common in general like hitmen, a mafia boss, the mafia wife, robbers, and boxers. However, the script created by Roger Avary and Quentin Tarantino incorporates elements of dark-comedy in each character. Like a boxer rushed by a mob boss but that mob boss was kidnapped by gay, a careless assassin, a mercenary who often quotes some gospel, mafia wife who has a hobby-dancing, so much more. Who knows how many dark-comedy’s in this movie. Quentin Tarantino also didn’t hesitate to feature many famous actors such as John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, and Tim Roth.

Uma Thurman

This movie isn’t like other gangster movies. When compared to the famous gangster movies like The Godfather, Goodfellas, Scarface, or others, you’re wrong. Pulp Fiction isn’t like a gangster movie that many scenes shoot each other. Precisely, Pulp Fiction brings a lot of cool dialogue and some kick-ass. This film is very difficult to explain. Maybe, you better watch it so maybe you can understand.

Overall, if you want to see a scene where the main character performs a full adrenaline or visual effect or something like that, Pulp Fiction doesn’t show something like that. Pulp Fiction is a masterpiece that shows the ins and outs of gangsters with very different perspective. This film is also included in the film that affects the world of cinema.
