  • Michael Madsen is Travis Baker, the main character in the game who wants to become the next criminal kingpin of Rockay City.

Crime Boss: Rockay City receives negative reviews

On paper, Rockay City is an ambitious game that promised to be a direct competitor to GTA. However, the game failed to deliver on its promise, and the result is an underwhelming game, according to many critics.

Some of the issues had to do with the writing of the game. It relies on the cast to evoke some 90s nostalgia, but the dialogue is repetitive and sometimes even offensive.

According to the reviews, the gameplay gets repetitive after some missions. The parts that are supposed to be challenging can be completed easily, and to make the experience worse, it has multiple game-breaking bugs.
