I haven't played Blackhand Edition (as I've already played it for the Ps2), but it was a lot of fun. Some of the original voices return for the game, and it's a 'semi' sandbox environment. There are many optional missions, as well as upgrading your character's stats and editing the appearance with facial hair, sunglasses, suits, shoes, hats, etc. Pretty much, the more expensive the clothing/accessory, the more respect you'll get for wearing it. With more respect, it's easier to take over businesses, as you don't have to do that much choking and threatning. I give the game 4 horse heads out of 5.
