basically you choose to be a cop or gangsta. If you're a gangsta, your mission is to kill as many cops as possible and using everything and anything in your way to achieve that. if you're a cop, its stopping all criminal activity via robocop style


trailer can be found here:


its already been requested to be banned in the US

Senator Calls for 25 to Life Ban
Eidos' gang-themed title has at least one big-wig riled.
by David Adams

June 20, 2005 - Senator Charles Schumer of New York is seeking to ban 25 to Life, the upcoming crime-themed title from Eidos, according to various reports today. Schumer says that the game "lowers common decency" by having players kill police officers and use innocents as human shields.

Schumer is trying to prevent stores from stocking the game, and is asking console manufacturers Sony and Microsoft to pull Eidos' license to publish the title.

25 to Life lets players fight as either cops or gangsters. In the latter scenario, you'll lead a life of crime to climb the ranks of your fellow thugs.

The game is clearly inspired by crime-ridden titles such as Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto series, but Schumer sees Eidos' offering as much worse: "25 To Life makes Grand Theft Auto look like Romper Room," he said.

Of course, games with violent or mature content are appropriately labeled by the ESRB's rating code. 25 to Life has been given a rating of "M" for Mature, meaning the game is only intended for players age 17 and older.

So far, no other politicians or community leaders have publicly joined Schumer in his campaign against the game.

saints row looked pretty good as well, but it's for next gen consoles. been waiting for 25tolife to come out, going online and slaughtering someone with an ak is gonna be great, imagine 2 cops coming in the front door, you unload the 12guage, back door kicks in, you throw a frag, bodies all over the floor, you escape out the window drugs in hand and jack a car for a quick exit.

F.E.A.R will be the next game to blow GTA away i think, trailer looks alright but like IKE said, none of it is in game, for all we know they could be selling Pong but just giving it a nice name, preview and CGI made trailer.
