Yes, Tony eventually reaches the top, but only by abandoning nearly all human morality. Finally, after taking a few thousands rounds to the chest and some buckshot to the back, Tony lies dead in the swimming pool at the center of his decadent mansion, with neon lights reading "The World Is Yours" glowing behind him.
As lessons go, it's not exactly subtle.
How the Game Missed the Point
When Scarface: The World Is Yours came out on all of the major game systems in 2006, it seemed like it'd be a lot of fun to live through the rise and fall of a criminal empire -- even if we all knew how it was going to end. Then they said that the game would be a sequel.
Really? Scarface: Mortuary Tycoon sounds like the worst idea.
So, what, the whole game is about a Weekend at Bernie's-style madcap adventure to pretend Tony is alive? Or is he a zombie?
Neither. In the opening cinematic, you see the finale of the movie. Only here, Tony whirls around just in time to kill his attacker and somehow escapes the mansion entirely unscathed.
"Ha, not this time! I ain't learnin' nothin' about no stinkin' morality!"
