I picked Crime Patrol up along with Twisted. Crime Patrol is a shooter where you are a police officer that shoots bad guys. There many ranks and three levels for each rank. I made it past Rookie rank and to undercover but can't seem to beat that last level. UPDATE: I've beaten the whole game now numerous times. It's very addictive.
GRAPHICS - 7/10
Basically nothin but FMV. Some can be choppy. But most of the bad guys are pretty good and dressed up to look like bad guys. Overall average graphics. Some of the enemies and such are pretty grainy and it's hard to see them. It is still pretty easy to see everything. The only problem comes in the shooting gallery on some of the Delta levels. The guys are so small you can only tell they are moving by a couple of pixels floating around.
CONTROL - 7/10 w/ mouse 5/10 w/cont.
I sure do need a gun for this game! It is very hard to aim if guys are poppin up everywhere and when you shoot the shot is some times inaccurrate. I am rating this with the standard controler so it really sucks but is possible to beat if you know where most of the bad guys are coming out.
Overall control is weak. With the mouse the game is much easier. You can get from one side of the screen to another very quickly. One thing that is pretty annoying though is that when you want to shoot quickly the clicks don't always register.
SOUNDS - 7/10
Shots can be heard pretty well and usually aren't choppy and voices are well done. The sounds of crime patrol are well done. Music is pretty cheesy but that fits right along with the acting ;) Screams are repeated but that's not very noticable since it repeats only every once in awhile. Not the best but it's still pretty good. This is the best of the ALG games in sound. Space pirates the voices don't match very well with the lips. In Crime Patrol it matches much better but no where near perfect.
Very fun game if you got a two player game goin and pretty good if you are playing by yourself. But the controls are pretty hard so you and your friend may need a real gun to shoot the screen because the control can be so frustrating. Stick with it though you have one ace of a game. Just practice practice practice. You'll get better with time. And if you don't buy a mouse for 3DO for only about 10 bucks! If only there was some way to daisy chain the mice together but mine doesn't have one and I don't think any of them do. If you have one with the daisy chain be sure to email me so I can change this. Your heart really gets beatin though when you're playing. And the shooting galleries are frustrating but too fun! The gameplay is really addicting and you won't be able to put the controller down for at least an hour if you enjoy the genre.
OVERALL FINAL SCORE - 7/10
A pretty good game if you like shooters and own a gun for 3DO but Crime Patrol is way to hard! If it wasnt for the control this game would rock! Buy it definitely if you're a fan of the ALG gun games. CP is the best one they've made. I hope to make a strategy guide one day for it soooo all you that are having trouble can learn from the master ;)
