Latin America, has in fact a lot of cities that could be perfect for adveture games or more. In fact, many of them, due the so diverse american enviroments, have been constucted over mountains (Quito), or other very different conditions. Most of them are not as symmetrical as other first world countries'cities, and are full of shortcuts, ups and downs, lost neighborhoods, very high avenues, etc.
