    Anyone know about this?

    "Gangsters can use broken bottles and Molotov cocktails when they're battling the police, while the cops can use tear gas and Tasers to subdue the outlaws. Both sides will have access to a number of guns including pistols, machine guns and shot guns. Players can choose to take enemies down in a number of ways, with both deadly force and non-fatal restraining tactics available."

    It says you can take down people with restraining tactics. Does this mean cops can like take down gangsters with some hand to hand combat if they get close?

    It reminds me of the "knife" option in socom when you get very close to an enemy.

    I thought this was cool. I didn't always want to have to shoot someone. Even better than the surrender idea I had.

    So anyone hear about this extra feature?

    The article is here: http://www.gamerankings.com/itemrank...eviewid=595143

    Thanks for your help!

    I'm not talking about kicking or just like fighting it out. But like maybe if you get close enough you can "Take Down" someone. As an option that would appear. And you'd do some sort of move that would take down or immobilize your enemy.

    Yeah. I think thats where the casinos came from.

    But I hope you can do takedown. Anyway you can would be cool, if you could do it without a weapon.

    I don't think its going to be quite like this. I don't know much about the melee attacks but this seems like this could be possible.

    I dont think we will be able to do that. Thatd def make it a melee/shooter.

    i think the non-lethal restraining tactics are like the tazer and whatnot, and i also believe that you can perform arrests when they are stunned (handcuffing them and whatnot)

    I don't think they are talking about the taser because in the paragraph above it thats the one where they mention the taser.

    So I don't really know what they mean.

    It makes me think... You've all seen the picture where a cop is tasering a gangster right? Well the cop is like right on him and an "action word" appeard when he got close I assume. So MAYBE if you get close without a gangster being stunned then another "action word" will come up put it will say like take down. Yeah I know what you mean about it being a melee shooter. But think of it. Socom could always "melee" players with the gun on single player. Well online was differen't. I thought it sucked that you couldn't knife someone online because it's supposed to be a stealthy game. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad if you could do something like this in 25 To Life.


    25 to Life's storyline is interesting, but the solid gameplay mixes elements of traditional shooters with the more immersive non-linear 'sandbox' style of play. The characters will have a large and impressive arsenal of weapons and guns, with more than 40 different types included in the game. Which weapons you can use will depend on what side of the law they're on. Gangsters can use broken bottles and Molotov cocktails when they're battling the police, while the cops can use tear gas and Tasers to subdue the outlaws.

    maybe cops will have like fancy ass disarms and gangsters will have a more thug type one i thought it was cool in dead to right 2 how there was a big mix of them like shooting a guy in the foot with a shotgun and then watching him spin around hopping on one footand then shoot him in the ass making him do a backflip

    anyway takedowns are a really good idea

    Yeah and the game is sort of melee anyway.. You can use bats and batons. So I wouldn't imagine this would be a problem
