Way of the Dogg (Video Game Review)
America Jones is the star of Way of the Dogg. America is the best fighter around, but he soon finds his world turned upside down when his girlfriend is killed during one of his tournaments. With nowhere else to turn, America heads to the temple where Snoop Dogg teaches martial arts to seek his guidance and looking for leads to get revenge on the people that took his life away from him. In typical exploitation film style, the whitest man in the whitest suit is behind the attack, and America will have to work his way up the ladder from the bottom if he hopes to get his hands on the man named Don Blank. Though the storyline is by the books, it does offer up some humor at the ridiculous scenarios that unfold, especially during fights. Faulting the game for having a poor storyline would be a bit like hating Rock Band for having a storyline whose most entertaining aspect is hiring your mom as your agent. The storyline isn't important in Way of the Dogg, but what is unforgivable is the entire campaign will take roughly one and a half to two hours to complete.
Way of the Dogg is now available for PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE Arcade, iOS and Android and can be purchased for $9.99 or 800 Microsoft Points. Way of the Dogg is rated T by the ESRB for Violence, Blood, Drug Reference & Mild Language. For more information on the game, check out the official Way of the Dogg website.
