Violent 'Scarface' is a killer game

In the 1983 movie "Scarface," the F-word is uttered 218 times and 42 people are killed. You can easily top those numbers in the new video-game version, "Scarface: The World Is Yours" -- and that's even before the opening credits roll.

Film-based video games are notoriously lame, but "Scarface" perfectly captures the look, language and violence of Brian De Palma's hugely popular movie, starring Al Pacino as Tony Montana, a Cuban immigrant trying to take over Miami's drug empire. It's no coincidence that the game models itself after the notorious "Grand Theft Auto" titles to do so, although it's a hair-trigger short of the best of that series.

The game begins with an earthshaking shootout at Tony's mansion. Mow down anyone who enters your crib, while pressing a button to issue taunts peppered with the F-word to build up your power. Store up enough, and you can fly into a blind rage to slow down the action and take everyone out with auto-aiming.

Unfortunately, no matter how many people Tony kills, he'll lose his empire. It's up to you to regain his turf by running out rival gangs, rebuilding his reputation, laundering money, doing drug deals and more in his free-roaming world. Get Tony killed, and you'll be told you messed up -- but using a much franker, R-rated phrase.

Needless to say, like the R-rated movie, "Scarface" is not for younger folks; that's why it's rated mature. But if you're of age, Tony's world is yours.
