Final Breakdown


The gameplay... running around arresting people is fun, but ultimately the storyline for any particular mission is pretty linear. The fighting systems... bleh.


On PS2, darn good. On Xbox with 720P, Widescreen, it's wonderful. Pay extra attention to all the stuff you can break.

Sound and music:

Lame voice acting on the protagonist, or it could just be the incessant one-liners. The soundtrack, on the other hand, manages to be a rap soundtrack without interfering with the game, which is a feat on its own.

AI and Difficulty:

Enemy AI? Actually it's decent. AI of the people in the surrounding areas? Dumb as rocks -- they jaywalk out to get in the way of car chases when you have lights blaring.

Controls and Interface:

Passable but unhelpful, especially since basic items (flashing badge, cuffing perp) are on a thumbstick click PLUS button.


If you like GTA-style games and want one from a cop's POV, great. But it's no GTA 3 killer.
