Back of IBM PC Box (US Release):
    You're smoking down the asphalt at the wheel of the incredibly high-powered V-Max. There's a picture flashing on your on-board computer screen. It might be the ugly mug of a world-feared drug overlord - or one of ten other slime balls from the dreaded crime empire known as Death On Arrival (D.O.A.). Your job is to get them. Part detective, part road warrior, part tough guy...and all cunning. Watch out for crazed punks and hit men as you speed down the city's freeways. Then prowl through decaying buildings to find your man. You've got a Magnum .88, snare gun, and a radar criminal locator. And you'll need them all as you brave hurled axes, vicious rats, whips, bombs, brute force - and the kind of people who don't go around saying "Have a nice day." Expect attacks as you make tracks in your V-Max. Good thing it's not the world's fastest, turbocharged sports car, but an arsenal of machine guns and bombs as well. Get ready for more unpleasant surprises as your manhunt takes you through seedy buildings in all the wrong parts of town. A great combination of the thrills of car racing and the chills of crime-busting: with 11 levels of detective skill to master. Another intensely fun game from U.S. Gold.

Back of case - C64:
    Step into the future... technology has overtaken society - the rich are richer, the poor are poorer - chaos, unrest, destruction...lawlessness reigns, terror rules. But this is your territory, your assignment with death. These are your streets and you have volunteered to clean out the scum, destroy the streetgangs and eliminate the deviants that pollute your city. Yes you have your beloved sleek racer, but armed with only a stun gun and keep net, what skills do you possess to neutralize the many hundreds who lie in wait for you? Being a cop is always dangerous, being a cop of the future is a step into the unknown.
