Scarface: The Game

When will this game be released? The dates on most sites say the 8th of October but that is a Sunday and I highly doubt that is going to happen. Also, did anyone see in last weeks Sears ad the game is going to be 35 bucks? It also said the game was due on 10/8 and would be 35 bucks upon release. A nice deal if it turns out to be true.

I have a feeling this game will bomb. I am hoping I am wrong but I see a rating of a high 5 or low 6. I even heard Al Pacino isn't doing Tony's voice anymore. I thought that was the reason why he didn't do Michael's voice in the Godfather, because he was committed to doing Scarface.

As for the release date, I heard the 8th or 16th. Why would it be $35? $40 or $50 is the common price point.

Ouch, that hurts. Looks like it's out next week, $49.99 for Xbox and PS2, $39.99 for PSP and PC versions.

I read somewhere that Pacino no longer has the ability to do the Tony Montana voice.

Have you heard Pachino's voice lately? There is no way in hell he can ever sound like Michael ever again.

I thought it was about likeness rights with Pacino, not the voice. He agreed to have his likeness portrayed in the Scarface game, and not the Godfather game.

I got the collector's edition of the game today at FYE (they're good at breaking street date). The game itself is fun to play and I am in no wa y disappointed. The intro kicks ass and the game starts off with a bang. I think the graphics are better than GTA graphics and Miami in represented much better in this than Vice City. You can't just kill civilians but you can conversate with almost anyone in the game with a huge variety of dialogue. It is going to take some time to get used to driving the vehicles as they are a bit jerky to me. Also, you can listen to your music (tape deck) in and out of vehicles. When you want music on or off you hit select. There are no radio stations just the option to either have music on or off. The map seems to be much bigger than I expected. I would say as of right now I would give it a 9 out of 10.

Actually all of the major retailers have this game in their ads as coming out the week of October 8-15. I even went to Best Buy yesterday to look for the game before heading over to FYE and it is not out yet there or elsewhere. Besides, FYE is becoming notorious for dropping games and dvds earlier than their street date. The game itself is nice and I'm glad that I picked it up.

Does anyone know why this wasn't released for 360? Does the Xbox version work on the 360?

It was probably too far along in development for them to start a 360 version and have it out in any reasonable frame of time. The Godfather at least had a PC version they could work off of.

As for the game, I've only heard bad things, except for the one post in this thread.

IGN gave it an 8.7 and said the guy that does Tony's voice is excellent. I'll pick it up when there's a sale.

Doesn't Scarface have a PC version as well?

Yeah but I think he means the Godfather PC, Xbox, and PS2 came out months before the 360 version did.

I'm gonna wait for a price drop on this puppy, or maybe for a Xbox 360 port. In any case, I'll be renting this at my job first, before buying.
