Reviewed on Xbox Series X via backwards compatibility, a code was very kindly supplied for the purpose of this review.
I was lucky enough to review the main game on it’s original release so this is a quick look at the updated game with the “Sicario’s Toolkit” update, if you want to check out the original review you can see that here
People sometimes ask me who Tony and Clyde are. And I tell them: They’re not simple thugs from the streets. But they’re not highly trained criminals or professional robbers, either. NO WAY! There’s more to them than just that. You see. Some like a bit of the good life: the big piles of money, the glamour of being reverenced in the streets.
Others are addicted to the adrenaline rush of an ongoing heist, combined with the smell of recently burned gunpowder, followed by the sound of empty shells falling on the ground. While some simply enjoy watching the world burn, especially when they’re the ones with the empty can of gas in hand. But Tony and Clyde are different. Why? Well, because Tony and Clyde want the whole package!
Sicario’s Toolkit Edition comes with some new updates to the gameplay:
No more One Hit Kill (Only if you wish for)
Weapons Attributes Exposed: for a better Loadout build
Fully Optimized: Smooth!
I personally quite enjoyed playing Tony & Clyde the first time round, but the only main issue I had was the one shot kill made it super difficult (and at times annoying) so when I heard that a new version of the game is released with the one shot removed (optional-although is removed as default) I was hyped to try it again.
The game runs pretty much the same, full on macho bravado with big guns and big explosions with an almost retro feel to it, however now if you keep the one shot kill off the game seems to run smooth and is definitely far more enjoyable but still had a level of challenge that doesn’t ruin the game.
There are bad guys around every corner some with bigger guns than others bringing more fun to the game than you could possibly need.
The overall feeling of the gameplay is far better with the new update and really has improved the game, it still has the “beer and pizza” movie game feel but now it’s an open bar with unlimited pizza so buckle up as this is going to get messy.
Graphics and Sound
The graphics of the game haven’t changed really from the original, I mean if it isn’t broke why fix it? The fun over the top action cartoon style really fits the game and gives it that fun feeling, blood splats and explosions a plenty this game just works and does it well.
Same as the graphics the soundtrack is the same with punchy, rocky music getting you in the mood for a fight, the in game voice acting is great although maybe not for the younger gamers out there as the language is a bit colourful but it works well bringing the ultimate bro-flick game.
To summarise my thoughts on Tony & Clyde: Sicario’s Toolkit Edition, the original was a great game but the improvements made in this edition have elevated it to a fantastic game and one that I’ll definitely be going back to time and again, still think the addition of co-op would finish the game off.
Verdict-Out of 5🌟
I give Tony & Clyde: Sicario’s Toolkit Edition a good score of 4🌟, I liked the original game but the new improvements have made this game a great game and one I’ll continue to enjoy.
