25 To Life is a third-person shooter video game for Windows, PlayStation 2 and Xbox released in 2006. The game was developed by Avalanche Software and Ritual Entertainment, and was published by Eidos Interactive.
Set in a modern environment, the game allows the player to play as both a police officer and a gangster, at different times, in a "cops and robbers" style game. The game can be played online with up to 16 players using the network adaptor for the PS2 and through Xbox Live for Microsoft's Xbox, and there is online play for the PC version as well. In addition, the game features a variety of hip hop songs played during the game.
The name of the game comes from a typical "indeterminate life sentence" that is often given in the United States upon a defendant's conviction for a violent felony. See the article on parole for more information.

 Tijuana Defeating heavily armed enemies
On the Tijuana mission where you get the sniper rifle and the man says, "Now the Federales are after me!", you are confronted by a group of men with rifles. They will be on the rooftop directly across the courtyard from where you are standing. The following is an easy way to dispatch them. Step to back into the corner and look just above the shack with the red roof. You can just barely see the head of each sniper, but they cannot see you. Take them out one by one until there are none remaining. You will save a lot of ammo by doing this. Then, go through the courtyard and around the corner. You are now rushed by several enemies. Duck behind the rear of the police car and snipe the men in the head as they come around the corner. You will save even more ammunition by doing this. Around the next corner there are several more lambs to the slaughter. Duck behind cover before you go any further. Make some noise so that they will come around the corner exposing themselves. Snipe their heads. Note: One of them has a rocket launcher; take him out first if you get rushed.
