    Chicago Enforcer

    Rated on December 17, 2009 by garey017

    A complete waste of time. Thankfully it's short.

    I like how the case for Chicago Enforcer has "only on XBox" stamped on it, as if that's impressive, or it somehow elevates the XBox above other consoles that "missed out" on this game. It's quite the...
