Back in 1995, the first of the 3D cards for the PC had appeared (remember the original Voodoo?) and PlayStation had just been launched. And one of the first ever games for the PS was G-Police from Psygnosis. The game was a fairly lack-lustre affair, but the graphics were gob smacking at the time.
Six years on and things have changed. Everything that is, except for a handful of programmers atTechland, the developers of Crime Cities, who have created what amounts to a doppelganger of G-Police. Flying about in your anti-gravity car around a Blade Runner environment, you get missions via email in a Matrix-style green-tint-lens shot that has been so overused in both games and Hollywood that it's a sign of serious imagination drought.
And sadly that's what this game is all about, zero imagination. Uninspiring story line, uninspiring graphics and uninspiring gameplay gives you an incredibly dull game, and one which you're not likely to return to any time soon. Even picking fleas off your pet hamster would be more exciting.
