Informazioni sul gioco

Kingpin è una storia di vendetta. Mettiti alla guida di una banda di strada e gestisci i tuoi uomini per attaccare, difendere o persino per scassinare qualche cassaforte e prelevare contanti. Potrai usare i contanti per comprare armi ancora più micidiali e per annientare i tuoi nemici in questo intenso shooter in prima persona. Kingpin è azione, prima di tutto, ma anche la maniera in cui ti poni conterà.

Forma la tua banda e recluta i membri direttamente dalle strade. Se un nuovo membro si rivela un traditore, fallo saltare in aria e fa' spazio per i nuovi acquisti. Muoviti all'interno del mondo criminale, ma tieni d'occhio Kingpin; alla fine, spetterà a te prenderne il controllo.

Kingpin si trova in un passato remoto che non avrà mai futuro. Il paesaggio è fatto da resti di edifici che hanno subito incendi e da decadenza generale. Bande locali si aggirano per le strade, per proteggere il loro territorio e alla caccia di opportunità.

Fairly fun and solid if a little bit silly heavily modified Quake 2 engine late 90's early 2000's in between Half Lifes era instance of a brutal and quite dark - but human enemies only - instance of a classic iteration of the FPS genre. Doesn't deviate from norms too much but has the nice additions of weapons shops and NPC cooperation, this achieved early on in the development of suchlike in gaming. Gets quite tough, still haven't finished it, also it doesn't work on Windows 10. Really good flamethrower effects.

Good lord no. I'd been waiting more than fifteen years to finally get a chance to check this game out, and it is completely not worth it. Even forgiving the fact that the Quake 2 engine is showing its age, hard, the graphics in this game are terrible. It's virtually impossible to tell friend from foe apart, aprticularly from a difference, the game paints with all the colors of the sewer, and all the modly have this odd wobbling to them that's supposed to make them look good, I guess, but just makes the people and weapons look like they're made out of Jell-o. The story is non-existant, you start the game having been beaten down by unnamed thugs working for.... another guy without a name, for no reason that the game ever tells you. From then on it's just your basic revenge plot. Go find the guy who ordered your failed hit, and kill him. There's boss fights, but that only constitutes enemies that have even MORE hit points than the general thugs. Which already are bullet sponges on their own. On top of that, most of the enemies in this game have hitscan weapons that have perfect acuracy from across the map, no need to reload, and sometimes won't stagger. There's almost no point in exploring as most dead ends have nothing in them anyway. There's weapons, ammo, and medical rooms here and there, which becomes a fight from one of those stashes to the next. And that's when the stashes aren't right on top of each other for no good reason. The Steam version also ships without music. You have to be a really hard core fan of 90's shooters to even WANT to play this one - like I am - and even then be prepared for disappointment.

Kingpin - Life of Crime was a classic FPS game that pushed the gaming boundaries when it was released back in 1999 that used the Quake 2 engine. The game is mature, violent, and filled with tons of bad words! If you're a fan of FPS games then this is a must have, which has great gunplay, awesome atmosphere with fully voiced NPCs, superb AI (your gang members know how to jump, climb ladders, flank enemies, etc.) and a cool revenge story.

Kingpin: Life of Crime è il gioco senza tempo. il capolavoro. IL gioco sottovalutato, sotto il radar, causa eventi storici concomitanti la sua uscita. E' un capolavoro, tutto il mondo si deve inchinare a Kingpin.
Inizia come uno sparatutto lento, con elementi di combattimento all'arma bianca, dove rapidamente si capirà, con la velocità di uno sparo, che voi siete un mister nessuno che deve scalare a diventare il "Kingpin".
Rapidamente, vi troverete ad affrontare uno degli sparatutto più intensi, difficili, crudi, disonesti, che potrete mai toccare con le vostre mani.
E' richiesta fortuna, strategia, bravura, per attraversare un mondo Davvero Aperto e Non lineare.
Gameplay non lineare, non standardizzato. Non modernamente scriptato: potete fare il massacratore, potete corrompere e ingaggiare tutti. la scelta è vostra.

Diciamo le cose come stanno - Questo non è Quake. Volutamente difficile sin dall'inizio, Kingpin è un profondo, oscuro, atmosferico sparatutto con elementi tipici da RPG che riesce a reggere [e anche a sfondare!!] il tempo che passa. Le voci sono fantastiche, la sceneggiatura ricca di bestemmie ed insulti totalmente gratuiti, e il gioco ti farà sudare durante Ogni combattimento che vi troverete a fare.


Questo Videogioco è una Meraviglia per gli occhi, le orecchie, le mani, il cuore, la ragione.
Ogni parola è superflua.
Ogni.

Potrei continuare a parlarvi delle musiche, di chi ha creato questo gioco, di chi era il publisher, delle zone, dei suoni ambientali, dei richiami cinematografici. ma sarebbe inutile. ogni mia parola non riuscirebbe a parlare di un centesimo della maestosità Imponente di questo gioco.

Kingpin 2 non esisterà MAI.
Ed è bene così. la Perfezione non può avere un seguito.


Voto 10/10.

Kingpin: Life of Crime is really interesting, what starts off as a tough as nails, slow paced, atmospheric first person experience which hates you quickly turns into an all out guns blazing fast paced action game that hates you even more. This is far tougher than the average 90's FPS game and will require luck, strategy and a skillfull approach to progress through it's big, open, levels.

The gameplay is varied, you can approach combat situations in different ways, going slowly and picking off enemies one by one or go in guns blazing like a typical FPS game from the 90's but don't expect to live for too long that way, the best approach is to use a mixture of the two.

The level design is somewhat reminscent of Quake 2's with non-linear layouts and multi-levelled structures that overlook area's of the map you're soon to visit or have already, mixed with some Half-Life's design choices. The levels are extremely well thought out and designed with not only looks but gameplay in mind and similar to that of Quake and Doom require you to look around for keys or items needed to progress and does not hold your hand and pull you through the map. The combat situations are often tough and leave you to overcome disadvantages which adds to the difficulty in a good way.

The AI is insane, the enemy will shoot you with almost instant, deadly accuracy as soon as you poke your nose around a corner which will frustrate a lot of people but I was able to overcome this by outsmarting the enemy in many ways such as luring them around corners and into your commandable gang members line of sight who will then mow the enemies down with the same ferocity the enemy AI shows towards to you which is really fun to watch. The AI is far from perfect, but in my opinion is WAY better and more interesting than what we see in modern shooters today, instead of artificially/dumbly taking cover behind barrels,walls and other forms of cover which makes them sitting ducks and actually easier to pick off, will run around, retreat then hide somewhere on the map, jump down from higher levels, climb ladders and attempt to out maneuver you which sometimes works to their success.

The visuals are amazing and take full advantange of the Quake 2 engine, with great lighting effects and detailed environments, there is literally nothing wrong with them but 50$ says this gets the bland, soulless HD remake along the line. The sound effects and voice acting are good, the weapons sound deadly and the AI has tons of classic lines, many including the 'f' word multiple times.

Overall this game really impressed me through-out, took around 8-9 hours of tough gameplay to complete, I wasn't able to finish this as a child due to it's crushing learning curve but if you stick around you'll experience a time when gaming was at it's peak but BE WARNED, a lot of patience is required!

Let us get one thing straight - this ain't Quake. Punishingly difficult to begin with, Kingpin is a deep, dark, and atmospheric shooter with RPG elements that stands the test of time. The voice acting is great, the script is full of unnecessary swears, and the game makes you fight for every kill you make.

Most underrated old school game. Best of its kind. This is one of the black sheeps of the 1990 known for its extreme violent content and abusive language

One of my Favorite games of all times. It brings back so many memories of being a teenager and playing the game your parents would go crazy if they saw you on it.
It is your typical action game, story is great and action is nonstop.

Kingpin is a very 90's game. It's a game very in-line with the "screw the censors let's have violence and swearing" mindset from around the same time that gave us games like Doom and Postal. Unfortunately this backfired for the game since it released around the same time as the Columbine shootings. Which gained it a great deal of controversy and seemingly didn't improve the sales of the game.

The premise of the game is you are a criminal who is beaten by several thugs in an alley. You pick up a lead pipe and decide to get revenge on the criminal organization that runs the city. The storyline is extremely minimalistic and there isn't much to get attatched to. The main protagonist isn't particularly well fleshed out and the motivations of the characters are never elaborated upon.

This gets into the brunt of my complaints with the game. The game feels like it lacks focus. The game starts out as a semi-stealth game before you get any good weapons or upgrades. Once you get access to a few decent weapons it turns into a straight up run and gun shooter. There's a mechanic where you can talk to NPCs in the world and even enemies if you put your weapon away. But it feels a little half baked since you typically trigger their aggro by accident and have to quickload. The writing of the characters was also pretty terrible. With enemies yelling "♥♥♥♥ER" frequently as soon as you're spotted.

However, I can see why Kingpin got a cult-like following after release. The game takes place in a 1930's styled dystopian city. All of the characters resemble 1940's mobster charicatures and you eventually gain access to a tommy gun. However, all of the dialogue is very 90s, and you see more modern inventions like monorails and helicopters. It has this strangely surreal vibe to it that reminds me of similar games like Manhunt although I don't know if it was intentional or not. It also has wonderfully good AI for the time that actually follows you through vents and up ladders. The game also does have this unique sense of progression. Where you start out the game waking up in the gutter and progressively become more powerful and influential. Lastly there are a lot of clear influences from films like the Big Lebowski and Pulp Fiction. With the antagonist of the game being a clear parody of Marcellus Wallace from the latter.

I wouldn't say Kingpin is a bad game but you have to go into it being aware it's a very mediocre one. I only recommend this game to people who are overly curious about old first person shooters who are willing to accept the game for it's very rough edges.

Please note, I played this game primarily with the "Rags 2 Riches" mod as it fixes how much of a slog the game becomes in the second half.

The game's bread and butter is shooting criminals in the face. The formula for the game is you go in an area, visit the bar, talk to some people who can get you access to a part of the map, maybe recruit someone. You go to the newly available area, murder basically everyone and loot bodies, then after doing whatever you need to do after, you go to the second part of the map, murder everyone, fight a guy with incredibly high health, then you move to the next level. Repeat. Each level has its variation on how this actually plays out but when you play you can easily see the formula. There are 7 levels, amounting to around 9 hours of gameplay, more if you play the base game. In the base game, your weapons are pathetic and are quite ineffective as the enemies have absurd amounts of health. You rely on the 1 or 2 goons you can typically get in all but 1 level of the game, and place them on corners, then you bait the enemies to the ambush point and they get smoked. Charging in all willy nilly is going to get you murdered, because the enemies have perfect accuracy and incredibly high health. In the Rags 2 Riches mod, you can still do this and on some parts its very helpful, but its much easier to just charge in gung ho with your crew and try to take on the bad guys.

Besides slowly increasing your body count with your crew, you'll be doing a few other things in the gameplay. You can Visit a shop called the "Pawn-O-Matic", despite not being automatic, is a store where you can buy armor, health, weapons, ammo, and mods that wear out over time without Rags 2 Riches. You can also talk to random people on the street, a select few will tell you stuff that can be incredibly helpful, others may do stuff for you for money, most will just tell you "Another freekin' night and no ♥♥♥♥♥." You can also visit the bar, found in all chapters but 1, where most of the helpful npc's reside, and where the recruitable goons usually are. You can also go exploring which can net you even more surplus cash to spend at the Pawn-O-Matic, ammo, armor, and health. Theres not a whole lot to be done outside of the main shooting bits of the game.

The plot sucks but its all you need. Some guy named Nikki had his shmucks beat the snot out of you in a back alley for unknown reasons, and you vow to get revenge and go around either a city or multiple cities, its not very clear, ravaging gang after gang. The Kingpin is like "yo kill this guy". Excuse me, he's more like "you ♥♥♥♥in ♥♥♥♥s better ♥♥♥♥in kill this ♥♥♥♥in ♥♥♥♥ or ill ♥♥♥♥in ♥♥♥♥ your ♥♥♥♥in ♥♥♥♥ up you ♥♥♥♥in ♥♥♥♥s." Seriously, this game has a lot of swearing, and violence. The dialogue is great, almost every line in the game has a cuss in it, and the main voice actor did a great job of making the lines memorable. Seriously, the line "♥♥♥♥ YOU ♥♥♥♥" that enemies sometimes yell when you alert them has been burned into my mind for 3 years now.

Easily the best part of the game is the atmosphere. The graphics, music, voice acting, and design of the world all are great. Forget I said music, the CD Music setting didn't work for me on the steam version, not surprised, and theres like 3 songs that loop on the radios you find in the game, albiet I do actually like one of the songs that loops. The lack of music helps create this forboding and tense and sorta creepy atmosphere. You could just be walking in this silent apartment building or run down area, and you have no idea where the enemies are hiding, while the ambient noises of cars in the background and a tin can dropping let you know that you're not alone, but you're not welcome either. The graphics don't help, which is a great thing. Almost every enemy you face is either some tattoo'd up thug looking for a fight, or some guy with a messed up face and demented smile, usually with some strange uniform to go along with it. The more regular looking people in the game are broad shoulder'd and taller than you, and the other model for the male characters is a short fat guy, it adds to the surreal feeling the game gives you.

The short version, the gameplay is a frustrating grind and eventually is hard just for the sake of being hard about 6 hours in, with Rags 2 Riches this is more or less remedied, still challenging though. Don't expect a gangster Deus Ex or anything, just a unique shooter with a nice setting. The plot is nothing special, but the atmosphere is incredible.

I say give this game definiately give this game a go with the Rags 2 Riches mod, I wouldn't say theres too much replayability in doing the whole game over again, but I would definately play the first level or 2 over and over.
