Gang Wars boots up and the first thing it
shows is the "Winners Don't Use Drugs," logo. Man, back in the day the
video game industry cared about kids and keeping them off drugs. So it's
awesome to see it in a game on the Playstation 3, Playstation Portable,
and Playstation Vita. Then we find out what we are doing in Gang Wars.
We play as Mike, and fight through several parts of New York City against The Jaguar, an evil gang which terrorizes the town and have kidnapped a young woman named Cynthia. Why must we gamers fight off these evil, vile and wicked self centered gang members? They stand between us and our goal of rescuing Cynthia.
Gang Wars plays like an early Streets of Rage, or Final Fight. It is lame that we have to be so close to the edge of the screen to move it. Which translates into some cheap hits from the computer. We punch and kick the enemies until they can no longer get back up. You know the old get them before they get you. And then just keep getting them. Blood goes flying in the last hit before the enemy dies. That way we know we killed them. Gang Wars also contains weapons that can be picked up and used.
Gang Wars is an arcade translation. So we can add coins to the game any time we want. In other words there is unlimited continues if you want them. Gang Wars is pretty easy at the beginning and then starts to turn the heat on. The sound bytes in Gang Wars are horrible. The voices show the lack of technology when Gang Wars was created.
We start Gang Wars with a certain game play style and three stats. We can upgrade them with points after each level. Players can decide which skills are more important to them, and which ones fit with their game play style. Enemies laugh after they hit the player as well. This is extremely annoying! This reviewer turned the volume down because of this annoying laughter.
