Konami Europe today announced what seems to be a GTA-esque game titled, Crime Life: Gang Wars. The game, inspired by such movies as Boyz n' the Hood, Menace to Society, and personal fave, New Jack City (gotta love your Ice T), places you in the middle of a sprawling metropolis, Grand Central City, amongst gang wars, violence, and treachery. You must protect your own and dish out some pain on adversaries. Does any of this sound like San Andreas? The game will be for the Xbox, PS2, and PC and will be released sometime in 2005.
