Bad Boys: Miami Takedown is an action video game originally released in 2004 and is based on the action-comedy film Bad Boys II. If you like Will Smith and Martin Lawrence and enjoyed the Bad Boys For Life film from 2020, then you'll likely appreciate the gameplay and humor of Bad Boys: Miami Takedown. Let’s jump into some more details surrounding the retro game.

A unique plot and experience

The game follows the story of two Miami Police Department detectives – Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence). Although the game is based on Bad Boys II, the storyline is unique, meaning you get to experience a whole new plot centered around the two beloved protagonists.

Not only do you have to fight a gang known as the Baby Demons throughout the story, but you’ll be dealing with the Russian Mafia and Colombian Cartel too. Expect an intricate story and plenty of action in the form of shootouts, rooftop chases, and hostage rescues.

5 act gameplay structure

There are 5 acts in Bad Boys: Miami Takedown, with each one containing multiple levels that take place across all of Miami. There are plenty of cutscenes too, so expect somewhat of a cinematic experience alongside the gameplay. It’s also worth noting that you only get to control one of the two protagonists at a time and the one you play as alternates between levels. It's a shame this game doesn't include a multiplayer mode so that you and a friend can take control of both characters at once, but this compromise still works fine. Retro shooter gameplay

Seeing as the game is a 3rd person shooter, it plays similarly to games like Uncharted. A nice thing about these kinds of games is that you can use the 3rd person perspective to your advantage by spotting where enemies are while you’re hidden behind cover.

No shooter game would be complete without a variety of weapons too, so you can expect to come across a few different ones when you download Bad Boys: Miami Takedown and give it a go for yourself. Pistols, shotguns, grenades, and machine guns all make an appearance at some point, spicing up the gameplay and keeping things interesting.

Though it’s not the best action game around and the graphics don’t live up to those of modern games, Bad Boys: Miami Takedown is still fun and nostalgic to play through. If you played this game as a kid back on PS2 or Xbox, it'll be a nice throwback for you for sure.

Pros:

  • Gameplay mechanics are easy to get the hang of
  • The character dialogue and scenes are quite humorous
  • Retro graphics are nostalgic, especially for anyone that played the game in their youth

Cons:

  • There are only 5 acts to play through, so it's not a particularly long game
  • Graphics are poor compared to modern games
  • The game is quite violent and not appropriate for younger players

Game Reviews

The nerve of some people. I mean, the movie upon which this game is based may make for a passable evening in front of the telly, but do they really expect us to want to play the game afterwards? It's the sort of dumb action flick where you switch your mind off at the door and forget the whole thing immediately afterwards - if we wanted to prolong the experience we'd beat our brains out on a brick wall while listening to some particularly puerile gangster rap.

However, even if it was the best film in the world, Bad Boys II is a miserable game. Being a rather cheap console port, the graphics are muddy and unrefined, especially the cut-scenes, which are frankfy abysmal. Likewise, the sound clearly comes from a stock sample library, save for the voices, which are delivered byeound-a-likes rather than the Hollywood stars themselves.

But by far the worst aspect of the game is the horrendous control system, which flicks confusingly between third- and first-person views, while the camera sweeps all over the shop and does its best to disorient you. Perhaps if the developer had borrowed a few directorial tips from Hollywood, it might have had a better game to show for it. As it is, Bad Boys II is bad, and not in a good way.
