I have played Tokyo 42 for at least an hour every day for two weeks now. This game. I love it. I’m sure many other reviews will cite SMAC Games, the developers, references to their influences being GTA2 and Syndicate. Although I can see why they’d say that in an effort help new players understand, I do feel that Tokyo 42 falls confidently into a realm all of it’s own devising. Tokyo 42’s opening moments hold your hand just enough to show you the basics then back off and let you dig into the sandbox with all toys immediately available to you.
