    You may think the Quake 2 engine is getting a little out dated.. but Xatrix brings it up to all new heights with their gang-related FPS, Kingpin. Kingpin takes a turn from the normal type of FPS game, where instead of fighting aliens on far off planets or mutated monsters in underground laboratories, you now turn to realistic settings--run down neighborhoods filled with crime and violence. And with the realistic settings, come real-life weapons, including a pistol, crow bar, pipe, tommy gun, AK-47, flame thrower, shot gun, grenade launcher, and rocket launcher, all of which are fun to frag all those fat gang members.

    Stealin' a bike Told those guys not to **** with me!

    Parents, keep this game away from the kiddies. Almost everything the thugs say in it involves some bad word or another. Those violence activists are gonna have a party over this game, due to it's realism. But hey, it's really fun, so who cares? Now, click below to head over the the In Depth section.
