Eidos took a detour en route to the German Game Convention in Leipzig and swung code from Total Overdose into the offices of IGN Entertainment. The online gaming portal reviewed the progress to date and noted their opinion in an interesting article on the exploits of Ramiro Cruz, an ex-con who gets let out of jail just to go down south and blow away legions of bad guys.

"In that glorious B-movie spirit, Total Overdose piles it on and on and has plenty of laughs along the way. Take some of the spirit of Serious Sam, mix it up with some Max Payne jump shots and set the whole thing down in Mexico and let the whole thing marinate in some tequila and this is the result."

"Even though Total Overdose isn't looking like the most refined game, it knows what it's going for and that's some ridiculous arcade-style violence. It veers wildly close to being stupid, but the goofiness saves it entirely. It also throws in a large arsenal of weapons and a wide variety of moves to deal with everything. And for that it's worth paying attention to."

Total Overdose is being marketed as a "super-cool, tequila fuelled rampage through Mexico's gun-toting, drug-pushing underworld." The game will release on PC, PS2 and Xbox September 2005.
