updated, can i get some tony montana hype?
Yes you can.
Scarface: The World is Yours came out on the very late end of the PS2/Xbox's lifecycles (2006). That, and it being a licensed game based on a 1980's gangster flick that ended with its protagonist spitting curses and lead at his enemies before dying in a literal bloodbath set off alarms with a lot of people burned on crappy licensed games, and pissed off cinephiles who thought that the game's premise of Tony managing to survive the gunfight that kills him shat all over the film's point. At a glance its not hard to think of it as a cheap cash-in, especially since Grand Theft Auto itself took more than a few cues from Scarface.
But as far as GTA clones go, Scarface was one of the better ones of its era. When it comes to licensed games, you can't just judge them on being a good game alone (although that in itself is an accomplishment), you also have to judge them based on how they make use of their license. EA did a licensed game based on The Godfather around the same time as Scarface, and while it was a competent GTA clone, you could have changed a few events and character names and had yourself an original property. The World is Yours honestly feels like a Scarface game. The developers make good use of their premise and the events from the film to make it feel like a true sequel rather than tacking on the license.
It has its flaws, but let me put it this way: Scarface ended up with a better video game than The Matrix.
