Total Overdose is an over-the-top, adrenalin-fuelled, free-style action, 3rd person cinematic adventure with a strong whiff of tequila. Eidos announced today that Total Overdose has gone gold and will be available in North America starting September 28th, 2005 on PS2, Xbox, and PC.

As sons of an undercover DEA cop who mysteriously dies of an "overdose" in Mexico, Ram and Tommy Cruz are taking it upon themselves to uncover and unravel the grand cover-up surrounding their father's murder. Playing as these witty trash-talking brothers in this hilarious adventure of revenge through Mexico, you'll infiltrate the drug trafficking underworld of Mexico battling thugs by the hundreds, making enemies with top drug lords, catching the eyes of Latin ladies, and reeking havoc like the youthful renegade that you are!

To add personal style to your pillaging, unlock your unique Loco Moves such as the infamous "Mariachi Move" with guitar cases ablazing, as well as the "Sombrero Move" summoning a spirit of the Day of the Dead to help you wipe out your surrounding enemies. In fact, you haven't lived until you have unleashed the "Lucido Wrestler Move"! And, in addition to your combat capabilities, you are surrounded by fast cars to steal, trucks to crash, and burrito carts to- well, you'll see! Your adventure unravels through Mexico's city streets, across tumbleweed plains, into the deep jungles, past ancient ruins, and beyond.
