Trivia

Credits

At the end of the credits is this text:
All characters in this game are real live people who I met once during a really weird party. I did change their names or something.

Development

The game started out as Future Strike, the sequel to the Strike series, advertised in the end of Electronic Arts' game Nuclear Strike. During the development phase, a decision was made to drop the series and change Future Strike into an unrelated, law enforcement-themed shooter, with a human protagonist instead of a chopper.

Police

At the bottom of the game's splash screen, one can read the following disclaimer:
This product is not endorsed by or associated in any way with the Los Angeles Police Department.
