Trivia

Development

The game engine is a reworking of the Perfect Weapon source code. All backdrops had to be re-rendered when representatives from Acclaim said "we want more red and yellow, like the movie".

German version

In the German version, all blood effects were removed and the intro was cut shortly before the pistol shot.
