Technocop is a game which could have been quite superb, but in my opinion some pretty poor programming and overall bad design have ruined a nice idea which could have been turned into something special. Avoid.

Un jeu très, très, très moyen !
Game Informer Magazine
All in all, Technocop is an interesting footnote in video game history, but nothing more.
Power Play
Das "Erst-fahren-dann-ballern"-Spektakel "Technocop" machte in der Amiga-Version hauptsächlich wegen der blutrünstigen Handlung und Grafik von sich reden. Auch auf dem Mega Drive bietet es zwar viel Blut und einige Gags, jedoch enttäuschend wenig Tiefgang und Spielwitz.

Das Scrolling ächzt todmüde vor sich hin, die maximal 16 Farben lassen allerhöchstens die Lachmuskeln des Users spielen. Die leistungsstarke Hardware wird nicht die Bohne ausgenutzt. Technocop ist der absolute Technoflop!!! Forget it!
I sincerely can't recommend TechnoCop to anyone looking for a serious, side-scrolling action shooter. Those people should instead spend their money on the two excellent Rolling Thunder games for the Genesis. However, if sating one's curiosity about a particular piece of Genesis history is all that's involved, than this may be worth looking into for a few dollars. TechnoCop may say that he plays to win, but gamers are better off just playing something else entirely.
Techno Cop wasn't fun in 1990 (1988 on other platforms like the Commodore 64) and it's certainly no fun now. There's not even any amusement in the game as an artifact of an era when developers were feeling cheeky about the ability to skirt around the edges of good taste. The driving is boring. The suspect hunting is lame. Keep it out of your collection.
It’s as if the programmers realized the sum of their efforts was barely playable and that no one would ever persevere to the end; feeble developers, I salute your painful honesty.

Je vous laisserai donc sur cette dernière citation de mon héros Jean Claude qui résume bien Technocop et ceux qui l'ont crée: "La drogue, faut pas toucher, c'est sérieux... Moi j'ai touché, j'ai perdu le touch, j'avais plus le feeling de la vie... Ma brain était à l'envers dans ma tête. La drogue, c'est comme quand tu close your eyes et que tu traverses la rue" Jean Claude, on t'aime....
