The Game – 1992 Review

This album is a great reflection of 1992 as a year from Game’s perspective but it lacks luster for a high level of replay ability. While very open about his life and experiences, it does mean there are more emotional and deep tracks without the aggressive edge he excels at.

The production is great for the tracks they are used for. While not a lot of high energy street grit that he is known for, the beats allow for the deeper cuts to really land with the listener and let the message sink in. Some of the aggression he has put into other projects may be what his fans are looking for, but it is great to see Game showing more of his emotional side.

The lyricism is the usual greatness with his delivery helping to boost his performance. Each of the songs has a good level of wordplay and other lyrical devices that help with the imagery of the bars. There are no issues with his performance as he changes tempo and flow masterfully.

Overall, this is an enjoyable project but it won’t have the longevity that his previous efforts will. While some of the tracks will continue to be played, most will not stand the test of time, although it is good to see he can make entertaining songs without features to fall back on.
