Graphically, it is pretty obvious that the team took a lot of care in getting the look of Tony Montana just right. Everything from his very recognizable face to his swagger comes off very cleanly and is noticeable to anyone who has seen the movie a couple of times. The game's semi-major characters, like Tony's lawyer, his banking friend and Felix, all come off well also, but it's obvious that there wasn't quite as much time put into them as there was Tony. As for the street thugs and all of the other people you meet in the game, they quickly become very generic and cookie cutter.
So what about the game's version of Miami? The development team went down to southern Florida to get a feel for the city and while the game doesn't duplicate the exact layout of the sunny city, it does seem to grab the feel of it (or at least the feel of the city we saw in the movie).
Audiowise, the game brings together probably the largest cast of movie star vocal talent. And while very few of the cast actually worked on the original film (those few being Steven Bauer and Robert Loggia), the sheer volume of recognizable voices in this game is noteworthy. Jay Mohr, Cheech Marin, James Woods, Miguel Sandoval, Robert Davi, Michael Rappaport and Michael York are just a few of the vocal talents you will hear in the game.
The game also hosts a wide selection of music from not only the 70's and 80's, but also a few new tunes tailored for this game.
