But I really do enjoy the non-linear nature of the game, which lets you roam around the prison freely, meeting with guards and other inmates, and picking up things like beachballs, katanas, and hypodermic needles. Granted, there isn’t too much to do in the game other than get into fights and otherwise cause trouble… but the sheer silliness of it all never seems to get old for me. Seeing a dismembered cellmate goofily hop toward you on one leg, threatening to kick your ass, is hilarious enough – but when your character then gets on his knees and inexplicably breaks into tears it’s a down-and-out riot.
There’s so much wrong with this game, from the character customization, to the goofy dialogue, to the courtroom scenes (where your character can stand trial without a shirt on and get only 6 days for aggravated assault), to the rather shifty 3d engine… but it’s still incredibly playable. I’d venture to say that Hard Time would be worse off if these things were polished up – the hallmark of a great B-game. Grab some friends and some beers and this is a perfect game to waste a few hours with.
