Vblank's open world action heads to the tropics, in Shakedown: Hawaii. From the boardroom to the streets, Shakedown parodies big business and the white collar crimes that go alongside. Build your empire, monopolize the markets, and collaterally re-zone the island's destructible sandbox.

Regardless of how “intense” it is (or isn’t) Shakedown: Hawaii is still a fun, beautiful game, and I enjoyed my overall experience with it.
I'm not mad at Shakedown: Hawaii, just disappointed. Vblank demonstrated a deep understanding of mechanics-based story cohesion in its last release, but that seems to be forgotten here. The disconnect between plot and play in Shakedown leave both shallow and underwhelming.
Shakedown Hawaii lives under the shadow of Retro City Rampage, and while it tries to do its own thing, the dozens of references and thematic missions are missed more often than not. The main story leads to some repetitive places, and overall, it's an experience that's fine for short sessions every now and then, but I wouldn't recommend spending more than a few consecutive hours in its world.
