You begin the game as Ramiro Cruz, El Gringo Loco to his friends and enemies. He is one seriously bad-assed ex-con who attempts to take down the criminal organizations that smoked his brother and father. He claims for revenge!
Playing as Ramiro Cruz you will have to kill everything moving on the screen, and it will bring back to your mind Robert Rodriguez movies.
It’s got serious game chops, slapstick humor, better-than-decent graphics, and a whole lot of crazy fun buried deep in its core.
Ever found the lifestyle of the drug cartels interesting? Like the Grand Theft Auto games, Total Overdose takes us through a story of vengeance. When the cartels murder a father, sons come seeking answers and violent drug lords fight back. If you like furious gunfights and heavy bloodshed, Total Overdose delivers the goods.
The Gunslinger’s Tale of Mexico
Fast and dynamic gunfights set in open-city environments, and don’t forget loco—muy loco! The formula of the game concocts a recipe filled with run-and-gun action in an exploration-style environment. The fast-paced gun battles sit in the same section as the Max Payne series, and you always have the option to explore the elements of your environment.
Biggest Reason to Check It Out
Total Overdose packs every corner of the room with fast bullets and furious gunfights. In fact, those two elements make up the core of the gameplay, and it combines itself with a varied move set. You can pull off some Matrix-like moves, such as slowing down time. All of this happens with blood everywhere as you pop some caps into the Mexican cartels. The entire success of this game has hinged upon the strength of these elements because outside the constant battles with drug lords, the game isn’t as appealing.
Special Body Moves in Your Gun Battles
As you cruise through this violent Mexican tale, the game gives you several special movements like wall-hopping, slow motion lunges, back flips and cartwheels. Along with that, you can activate special shots to leave your enemies bullet-riddled and wishing they’d made better life choices.
Special Gun Fighting Moves
You also have short-time special moves, and you spend tokens to unlock them. For example, you might buy the move, “El Mariachi.” This is where you receive two guitar cases full of bullets to burn through shells like a raging fire. Some of the other gun fighting tricks include the Tornado where you jump into the air and rain down bullets on the enemy like a violent twister. If you want another cool move, the Raging Bull is another one where you charge full speed at the drug smugglers and kill them. While it sounds far-fetched and unrealistic, this game lets you live the fantasy of movie-style gun battles.
Special Moves: To Use or Not to Use
The special moves of the game bring a new element to it, but gamers will either abuse it or not use it at all because it makes the levels too easy. It depends on how you like to play games, but the standard gun fights of this game are usually enough for you to take down anyone you might face, and special moves like the Tornado work best when enemies have surrounded you.
- Interesting and unique game
- Fun story line
- Cool special moves
- Dynamic and lively gun battles
- Nothing extraordinarily groundbreaking
- Cool but impractical special moves
A third-person action shooter employing the deployment of thousands of bullets every few minutes, Total Overdose uses shooting as the mechanic to set everything off. The more guys you kill, things you break, and the greater the diversity of moves earns you points, increasing your kill chain.
Fire your guns and finish all enemies doing completely insane special moves, and all this surrounded with a delightfully rough and tumble soundtrack.
