It’s here, the game that caused all the controversy over the last year, the game that’s been causing all the hype 25 to life from Eidos. With all the talk about this game I had high expectations, so I was more than excited when I received my copy… So I started right away, now to begin with I was a bit disappointed I couldn’t quite get used to the controls and was getting frustrated, but id say that happens with all games… the graphics were above average but nothing mind blowing although the movie clips and some levels were pretty impressive, of course that would vary between the XBOX and PS2 systems. The game surely has its share of violence, blood and all, earning it a mature ESRB rating, we love it! Although one thing I felt about the story line was the forced feeling to make the game have a "urban" or ghetto if you will vibe to it, not overall just in the dialect this tends not to stand out so much when you get further into the game play. On the games behalf as bad as my initial impression was once I started playing I was pretty into it and couldn’t put it down, which in turn is probably why I beat it within a day. Not that it was a breeze, I played on normal difficulty and found my self doing certain levels repeatedly… the game has a good ability to keep things fresh, none of the levels are a like and you switch characters several times in between Freeze the main character, Detective Lester Williams who’s working to track you down and Shaun Calderon leader of the 22nd street D-Boys once a good friend who’s now turned on you… if I had to choose id say freeze is my favorite character based on his role in the game… Another good aspect of the game is the sound track, with tracks from Tech N9ne, Blaze ya Dead Homie, Esham, ABK, Lavel, UTP Playas, 2Pac, Shyne… and that’s just to name a few the tracks are all hot and defiantly keep your adrenaline pumping. I’ve read a few reviews about the game here and there, most of which were negative toward the single player mode if not the whole game, im going to disagree while it wasn’t a new GTA or anything it was still fun and defiantly a good game. I’ve heard although I haven’t been able to test it just yet that the multi player mode is the best feature of the game… so if that’s your thing get your friends together and battle it out in 25 to life. Im going to give this game a over all rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars, make sure you pick it up and see what all the hypes been about…

Birdman Busted on Weapons, Fraudulent License charges

February 2nd, 2006 | By Administrator

Cash Money Records founder and rapper Brian ?Birdman? Williams was arrested Sunday (Jan. 29) on weapons and fraudulent driver?s license charges.

The 36-year-old music mogul was charged with carrying a concealed firearm; possession of a firearm by a convicted felon; unlawful use of a license by presenting another person?s driver’s license; possession of a fraudulent license; and failure to have vehicle registration.

The alleged incident occurred at 3:28 a.m., when Miami Beach police officer Kevin Millan said he spotted a maroon Maserati ”parked in the right lane of traffic” on South Pointe Drive. Millan?s police report further stated that the vehicle had no tag and a covered vehicle identification number.

Williams told Millan he owned the Maserati and that his license and paperwork were inside the car, according to the report.

?After opening the glove compartment, [the] defendant reached across to driver’s side,? Millan stated. ?While doing so, he removed a .40 cal. glock semi-auto pistol from his waist band with his right hand and dropped it to driver’s floor board?.[The] gun [was] loaded with eight rounds.?

Police said Williams had three ID cards and two driver?s licenses from Louisiana under the names Brian Williams, with a birthdate of Feb. 15, 1975, and Thomas Corey, with a birthdate of Feb. 15, 1969.

In addition, Williams told officers his real name was Brian Christile Williams, born in 1969.

The report also stated that Williams told police he recently purchased the Maserati in Los Angeles, but ”it has no tag and has not been registered.” H e also said he had a prior felony conviction.

Williams? attorney, Andr? Crenshaw, stated that the allegations against his client are untrue. ?There are some conflicting stories as to his possession of a handgun,? said Crenshaw. “[Williams] denies saying that he has a felony conviction. He never made that statement.?

Williams, who is out on $18,000 bond, could not be reached for comment Tuesday (Jan. 31).
