I'm mostly an RPG, Strategy gamer, but I do like First person shooter games and when I found this Total Overdose for only $4.90 at Frys, I fell in love with it. I don't know about the comparisons that I have read from other reviewers, nor do I want to or care why they have to bad mouth this game, and call it a Ripoff. But if you want a fun, funny and rather stylish romp with guns in Mexico, this game is for you. If you don't care what people say about how it's a rip off of GTA, you'll find out, that GTA only inspired this game's open ended game play and it's day of the dead mini game. It did not copy GTA's content. The graphic of Total Overdose are awesome and make GTA's look almost comical, (don't get me wrong I like GTA too) The easy with which you can control the games main character is cool and it makes this game fun and easy to learn for those gamers who never wanted to play a game it this genre. The Shoot-dodge system makes it fun to setup head shots to take the bad guys down fast, while the simplicity of the jumps makes driving the cars or trucks over them fun to watch.
