Torn is a (very) old-school kind of RPG, drawing its inspiration from the text-based adventures of old, wrapped up in a modern crime saga in the titular Torn City. As an aspiring criminal mastermind, you’ll claw your way to the top, accumulating plenty of scars along the way from your scrapes with other enterprising crime lords-to-be.
Torn is a beautiful title to look and showcases a premium level of detail and quality that’s only ever found in a few VR titles. The puzzles themselves may be on the simple side and the ending is somewhat underwhelming yet that doesn’t detract from the wonderful adventure as a whole, with Torn evoking a charming strangeness that carries you through.
Torn offers remarkable freedom in developing your character, who starts out as the lowliest of thugs but has a limitless opportunity to advance. You can own cars and guns, invest in legal and not-so-legal enterprises, set bounties on other players, gamble your earnings away, rob, race, and murder to your heart’s content. Whether you spend just a little time in the game each day or play for hours, you’ll find something to do… if you can survive.
Attacking another player costs 25 Energy (or 10 Energy with Love Juice), and you may find yourself wanting to attack someone for a variety of reasons.
Initiating an attack will bring you face to face with an opponent, and from this point, you will have 25 'turns' to defeat them. You may make only one action per turn (e.g. using your weapon, using a temporary item, reloading a weapon, or attempting to escape). If after 25 turns you have not won or lost your fight, it will count as a stalemate (don't worry, there's an award for this!)
