American Fugitive Review
American Fugitive is a great game in the style of old school GTA. You play as Will, a petty crook wrongly convicted for his father's murder. You escape from jail, and with the help of your brother-in-law Dwayne (and some new friends) you start searching for the real killer. As a huge fan of the original top-down GTA titles and later, Chinatown Wars, this game ticks all the right boxes. Played for a couple of hours and it is a total blast, in particular the freewheeling carnage that spirals out of its sandbox mechanics. The gameplay is fluid and super fun, especially the driving part just feels right you can actually feel the road. They story is a classic revenge story nothing special but you don't need special with this awesome immersive gameplay. If you really like the role-playing feel of the GTA games with a mellow mechanics this is your game. The mechanics and interactions on NPC and environment are spot on. I do love it, and would like to thank the Devs for bringing this sort of gameplay back.
