    "thug-life" is no life, foo!

    This FPS was pretty good, if you look past some of its minor faults. The storyline is nice, you're someone who has been pushed around and you're going to take out the Kingpin and perhaps be one yourself. You can have a m... Read Full Review

    Awsome shooter for the profanity inclined!!!

    I really liked the game. Shooters are always fun. I was amazed at the gameplay. Granted when it came out it was top notch. Now it's kinda cartoony compared to what is out now. But I was happy with the overall outcome. Ye... Read Full Review

    What a great classic game.

    This old classic game is excellent. Not only the main game was good but the online multiplayer mode was extremly great and it is still fun to play from time to time. The graphics were not great at that time but don't let... Read Full Review

    Kingpin: Life of Crime

    If I worked at Interplay, I'd have used that time to write thank-you notes to every single person who helped publicize the game by singling it out for its over-the-top carnage and shockingly realistic depictions of viole... Read Full Review

    MY favourite multiplayer game of all time. I wish they would make a sequel.

    The game is not worth playing now simply because the multiplayer side is no longer an active community and with using the Quake 2 engine it was not too long before hackers started to spoil the game. But, when it was... Read Full Review

    A great classic

    Well what can you say about kingpin? For the time it had unbelievable graphics even if the weapons look a bit funny. Nevertheless I liked the story from the first minute onwards. You start up in a back alley all beat up ... Read Full Review
