TOTAL OVERDOSE HIGHLY COMPRESSED (also known as Total Overdose: A Gunslinger’s Tale in Mexico; abbreviated as TOD) is an open world action/adventure third-person shooter video game that was developed by Deadline Games and Square Enix, published by Sci Entertainment in Europe and by Eidos Interactive in North America. It contains a demo for Tomb Raider: Legend on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions. Chili Con Carnage, a PlayStation Portable game using some of the original characters but following a different plotline than Total Overdose, was released on February 13, 2007. A sequel was originally planned named Total Overdose 2: Tequila Gunrise. It would have featured the entire map of Mexico, but it was cancelled after Deadline Games closed down.
TOTAL OVERDOSE HIGHLY COMPRESSED PC SCREENSHOTS
As mentioned, Total Overdose’s strongest aspect is its gunplay and combat elements as combined with its varied move set. As in the Max Payne series, players are able to pull off some Matrix-esque moves that slow down time and allow you to easily — and quite bloodily — pop a couple hundred caps into some fools asses. The game’s entire success lies in the strength of this design, and fortunately it’s great fun. The game outfits you with a number of various slow-motion lunge and wall-hop moves, like cartwheels, back flips and the like. On top of this, you’re given both always-active special shots, like timed headshots, and a set of short-time special moves that you need to earn tokens to use, like El Mariachi, where you’re given two guitar cases that burn through shells like a Hummer burns through gas.
