Another digitized shooter? If you're wondering whether that means more first-person gun fire, corny dialogue, and imprecise controls, wonder no more. It does.

Crime Doesn't Play

This time you're a rookie cop who's just as ambitious as your 12 shot pistol will allow. Starting as a loudmouth patrolwoman, you advance to the sleazy Sergeant (complete with a shootout in a strip bar), do some SWAT team work, and finally move on to a Delta Special Forces assignment. The object: Shoot bad guys, wait for the CD to load, and shoot again.

The aim using the con trailer is inaccurate. When life and death hang on a split-second decision, the gun (sold separately) is a must. Even when calibrated, though, its aim is also not always true.

Digital Detective

The graphics serve up clean, sharp, digitized images of characters ranging from Mafioso bosses to gun wielding strippers.

The backgrounds are amusing, especially in the strip joint, where no one seems to duck when the bullets fly. Those strippers must be good.

The sound is your basic gun shot, accompanied by full dialogue thatls so corny you'll wince. When you come across the few unintelligible phrases, you'll count it as a blessing.

If you like Lethal Enforcers or Mad Dog McCree, you'll be on the lookout for Crime Patrol. It's just a crime that nothing different was put into this game.

ProTips:

  • Watch out for the driver of the semi trailer. He gets up after you hit him once.
  • Use at least ten shots before you reload. Some enemies leap out immediately after you down a bad guy.
  • If you die, memorize the shooter's location. When you return, take a stray shot to line up your gun sight, then peg 'em.

Game Reviews

It's never been an easy job, but the police must do what they have to do. You are an officer trying to progress through the police ranks, while battling an assortment of nasty criminal elements. For every mission you complete you'll get promoted to bigger and more dangerous duties.

When you start off as a simple rookie, you'll take on gang members, armed robbers, and some street criminals. Nothing too difficult. When you attain the rank of Detective, it's up to you to stop a drug cartel and car-thief rings. Then it's time to really get down and dirty as a member of a SWAT team taking on terrorists.

Crime Patrol uses the powers of the Sega CD and its video capabilities to put you right in the game.
