Similar to the Amiga version in most respects, although the sound is a touch weaker, and the intermission stills are missing - but that doesn't stop this from being just as enjoyable. If blasting things to blazes is your bag, take a peek.
[Budget re-release] Narco Police is surprisingly playable for such a hoary old chunk of code. It can be a touch slow and flickery, but the gun battles really bring out all those nasty, trigger-happy instincts. Having said that, though, it's not all pumping bullets into scum - there are some puzzley aspects, too. This is an above-average game with plenty of varied features to suit everyone.
Granted, the plot is likely to give the indomitable(?) Mrs Whitehouse a heart attack - praise indeed - but the action doesn't keep up with what the game's trying to do. Make a move left or right and you need to endure a ridiculously frustrating delay before the action responds to your movements. This makes a game almost unbearable to play and I vote it should be made a capital offence for game programmers, punishable by guillotine. The probs in the graphics department don't aid this situation much, making the game look very jerky and drawing still more attention to the poor response. If you just can't resist human torture on a genocide scale then Narco Police satisfies. If you like some playability in your games then there's plenty of other titles to choose from.
