Lift on the streets ain't easy or pretty. The world of Kingpin is filled with dilapidated buildings, trash-can fires, rumbling city trains, hallways filled with garbage, and streets drenched in blood. It's a world where business meetings arc held in mens rooms instead of board rooms and you're only as strong as the weapon you carry. And don't expect honor among thieves; riicy'll shoot you in die back for a dollar, so don't be afraid to sneak tip behind an enemy and knock them out then search the body for loose change.
As you travel the streets on a quest for gangland revenge, the tattooed punks of Kingpin will converse with you, fiftht amongst diem selves, seek cover behind nearby debris, attack immediately if you coinc at them with a raised weapon, and, if hired, work as your personal bodyguards. Injured characters leave a trail of blood behind as they walk, and the less-than-polite folks you meet pick wedgies out of their butts in the middle of a conversation.
If the game's gore doesn't shock you, the profanity sure will. The street thugs are fluent in four-letter words and will utter them at every possible occasion. If Palfj Fiction singed your ears, you won't last five minutes with these raunchy ruffians. Its murder most foul-mouthed.
The demo featured a few infectious beat loops by Cypress Hill and the tight, customizable controls that gamers have come to expect from the Quake II engine.
Like Half-Life, Kingpin offers a complete, palpable atmosphere in which to get lost. The game's unique look and controversial content are sure to make it one of the year's most talked-about games.
