Sooo not worth it... what crap, Sluggish controls and its nothing more then an errand running game... go to hotel, go get a snake, go buy spice, go do this...

Graphics don't even look that good, some good textures here and there but then BAM big ugly lowres texture out of nowhere...The game also uses sterotypical hindu voices... and they all sound the same...
