This game isnt bad at all! People have just jumped to stupid conclusions!
Fights - After all, this is a fighting game
Using wepons - You can get knifes, bats and more to turn your rival into a mess.
Recruit- You can get people to join your gang!
Prison - You can get sent to prison if you get beat up by a cop, but then you can just break out!
Charactors - The people are pretty aweosome, they look cool!
Gameplay - You can change clothes, talk to people, recruit people and get plastic surgery!
Blood effects - Not the best blood effects, the splatter is pretty ordinary.
Controls - Not bad, but not the best either, your charactor punches way to fast for the fights to be realistic.
This game is not going to be a 10/10 but it is cheap, and quite a bit of fun, as you can play again and again with differant charactors. Look for it in your bargin bin or preowned section.
