Characters[edit | edit source]
Ray "The Trigger Man" Reggie
The main character of the story, who seems to have no actual name. He is Don Coladangelo's personal "clean-up guy". He has no remorse for cold-blooded murder as long as it serves his boss' desires. His reasons for blindly serving the Don are never revealed, only that he has "some ties" to the mob boss.
The man who sends your character on missions, all pertaining to bringing down the Montagano Family. He's credited as being a very honorable man, thus earning the respect of the city's underworld, and possibly the reasone the Trigger Man follows him so faithfully.
Not much is known other than he is Don Coladangelo's most trusted capo.
A man who has all but retired from the mob scene, until his one and only son and successor to the Montagano Family, was murdered. He blames this act on the Coladangelo Family and has come out of his "retirement" to avenge his son's death.
Johnny "No-Neck" Navarro
Don Montagano's underboss, a ruthless killer in his own right.
Harry Di Ciero
He controls Don Montagano's "air force". His helicopter is a threat to the Coladangelo Family
Donna Bella Montagano
The granddaughter of Don Montagano and daughter to the late Don Antonio Montagano Jr. Rumors abound of her involvement in her father's death, but fear of the young woman prevents anyone from stepping forward with any information. She was ready to take over the Montagaon Family until her grandfather came out of "retirement" to exact his revenge on the Coladangelo Family. Her anger towards Don Montagano's return to the mob scene goes unnoticed for the time being, as she plots her own "revenge" on the Coladangelo Family.
The seemingly neutral underboss of the Perfetto family.
Summary[edit | edit source]
The main character of the story, who seems to have no actual name. He is Don Coladangelo's personal "clean-up guy". He has no remorse for cold-blooded murder as long as it serves his boss' desires. His reasons for blindly serving the Don are never revealed, only that he has "some ties" to the mob boss. I just call him " The Trigger Man". The game opens with Don Coladangelo holding a meeting between him, his capo Ralph Borrello, and the game's protagonist, The Trigger Man. He relays the information that the Montagano family is moving against the Coladangelo's due to the murder of Tony Montagano, Don Montagano's only son and successor to the Montagano Family.
The Trigger Man proclaims his readiness to "deal with" the Montagano's any way the Don sees fit. Don Coladangelo then asks his favorite assassin to convince the Montagano's of their innocence in Tony's murder, and to persuade them to call off the vendetta with an apology.
Ralph Borrello then informs Trigger Man of a diamond smuggling operation being used to finance the Montagano's new casino, and that the diamonds are more than likely being moved fast, as their funds have been drastically depleted, and proclaiming war amongst mob families is anything but cheap.The Don seems certain they're keeping the diamonds in a high-tech vault inside the casino, and hires you to steal them, in order to cut out the Montagano's income, and possibly ending the war before it starts.
Reception[edit | edit source]
Trigger Man received a mostly negative reception from critics.
It was noted for having many flaws, including the following:
- The player can stand directly in front of an enemy and the enemy will not shoot (this has been debunked as a glitch)
- Minimal plot
- All guns make the same sound
- Only 8 levels
- Only seven weapons
- All enemies share the same model
- Very few controls, been reported that jump and crouch are the most advanced controls in the game.
- Bland artwork
- Bland missions
- Music stops and starts at specific times
- It takes ten shots to defeat someone with the handgun.
- Textures are only partially solid, opening up several glitched "worlds"
- Rather than voice acting, text boxes have been substituted.
- Gratuitous profanity and sexual content
- "Bodies" by Drowning Pool is not present in the game even though they promised it
- Terrible Graphics
