Overview: Fight the mean streets on both sides of the law.
Game Modes:1-16 players
Game Play: 25 to Life is pretty similar to Grand Theft Auto, but you play as three different characters who have their own story line, objectives, and motives for doing what they have to do to survive the streets. The main character is Freeze. He’s a drug dealer and gang member who wants out in order to keep his family together. He’s pretty annoying, but hang in there. Then there’s Detective Lester Williams who is your typical “good cop. The final character is, Shaun Calderon, who is a gang leader, murderer, and Freeze’s bestfriend. This game is best when played online with multiplayers. Each can customize characters, weapons, and create a custom tag. There are tons of game modes, but Raid, Robbery, and War are the best. Raid is where the Law Enforcement make surprise raids on criminals in hopes of catching the key players. The Robbery mode let’s you stake out a location and pull off an actual robbery and War is a team-based death match. 25 to Life is full of action, but the characters might get on your nerves.
Graphics: Decent … considering all we wanted to see were beat downs, pistol whippings, and bank heists.
Sound: KRS-ONE, Gang Starr, Ghostface Killah, Geto Boys, Public Enemy, Xzibit, Tech N9ne, Grafh
