    "Don't buy it - the company Geek Phase no longer exists"

    May 22, 2010   |   By robcik2000

    Version: Drug Wars - Underworld 1.31

    Pros

    Good game. Addictive.

    Cons

    You get the feeling that the game is only half finished, like there should be more cities and more options, like there's an update just around the corner. Problem is that the company no longer there - Geek Phase, so don't pay for reg version!!!

    Summary

    Here's the problem - I installed the game, got hooked and ended up going to the Geek Phase site and paid for the reg version. Got the reg number and it all worked fine for the hours that I played it. I turned the computer off overnight and when I turned it on and tried to play it again, it had reverted to the free version. I checked my emails and saw that I never received a confirmation email, like one usually does, so I had no record of my registration/activation code. I went to the website and tried to send an email to the support section, but that bounced back, saying the address does not exist. I don't know what the glitch is, but . I am writing this review to warn others before they spend the money on this and have the same problem. If not for this little issue, I would be writing a very favourable review - it's a great gam.... just that I can't play it and there's no help to fix it.

    "Fun, addictive, simple game."

    February 22, 2010   |   By snrooster

    Version: Drug Wars - Underworld 1.31

    Pros

    It's hard to find "simple games" that can keep the attention for more than a couple minutes. It's a fun little game, worth downloading.

    Cons

    Demo is 2 short!

    "65% addictive 35% annoying"

    August 09, 2006   |   By PCfool

    Version: Drug Wars - Underworld 1.31

    Pros

    A fun game that allows you to be a "day-trader" of recreational intoxicants. Travelling between neighborhoods in a city,ie New York or Austin you build your funds until you can purchase cool add-ons from the store like clothes for more storage space, armor for protection weapons for fighting and vehicles for moving around faster. I like that each neighborhood visit uses one day,then the purchase of transportation divides days into combinations of morning, afternoon, evening and night depending on speed of vehicle. You can hire thugs to help you fight and snitches to give you tips. The interface is really clean and easy to manipulate and you can use your own pictures. It is addictive and very cool to see how rich you can become and how much money you can make on smart timely transactions. The demo is a good sample and it lasts forever instead of giving you 7 days like ya don't have a life. Its worth a try and a buy.

    Cons

    The biggest pain is the encounters with the police are WAY TOO numerous. Since it is text based I find myself constantly clicking on 'run' and 'fight'. On top of that each encounter requires multiple clicks to advance the action and encounters occur approx. 3 out of 5 visits. Thats too much darn clicking! Worse still there is no way to get the cops off of you. You should have the option of paying them off once a week so they will bug off and you can actually enjoy playing the game. Encounters with mafia and gangs aren't much better its just that with a good weapon ya get lots of cash from them. But once you kill somebody they oughta leave you alone for awhile. Another drag is can't change the names of the snitches (at least I haven't found a way) The names are stupid and I can't recall who belongs to which neighborhood. Either allow custom names or include the neighborhood with their name when they call so you know where they are from. It's true though...if the power goes off while I'm playing this game I don't really care, I'm not attached. After awhile its just buy low, sell high and click click click click click..

    "Shocking Riviting Shocking Real Life Existance"

    July 15, 2005   |   By Master P

    Version: Drug Wars - Underworld 1.31

    Pros

    The Product Is Very Real Realer Than The Drugs In The Street & Cheaper & More Expensive But, Real Enough To Feel The Balance Of Your Cash Grossing At Levels That Supremly Grow & Fall Back To The Real Life Street Hustle So In Other Words It's Very Realistic.

    Cons

    The Locations Need More Locations & More Adaptable Protacol.
