    Chicago Enforcer

    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 opposite, it really... Read Full Review
