The game looks to be typically gangsterish, with a mean-looking man in a car, and an even meaner dog in the passenger seat. It also looks like water will play a bigger part than in previous games, seeing as one of the shots shows a mini submarine. And what’s that lurking below the surface in another? Why it’s a massive shark of course, eyeing up a particularly tasty-looking diver. So don’t expect the action to let up just because you’re underwater.
