Total Anarchy is a GTA inspired top-down open world action game, which allows you to get up to all manner of mischief on the bustling streets of its crime-filled City.
First featured on Alpha Beta Gamer a year ago while it was in Alpha, Total Anarchy harkens back to the early days of GTA, giving players complete freedom to cause mayhem and earn a living in a sprawling crime-filled city. The latest build is much more polished and has fleshed out the city and gameplay in such a way that it surpasses GTA 1 and 2 in most ways.
The success of any open world GTA style game always revolves around how interesting the open world city sandbox is and thankfully Total Anarchy doesn’t disappoint. You can steal cars, commit crime and get chased by the cops as you’d expect, but there’s also lots more to do on the streets of Pavilion City. You can accept missions from phone boxes, buy businesses, mod vehicles, get involved in gang warfare, use over 26 unique weapons, trash hotel rooms or just drive around listening to the exclusive in-game radio station.
It’s an excellent game that plays like a true spiritual successor to GTA 1 and 2, taking the top-down open world mayhem of Rockstar’s classics and updating it for a modern gaming audience. With Rockstar increasingly focusing on realism and gritty storylines, Total Anarchy is perfect for anyone hankering for a bit of good old fashioned top-down citywide crime, carnage and chaos. Highly recommended.
