Summary: Parents need to know that in the action adventure game C.O.P. The Recruit you play as a police officer who fires shotguns, pistols, and machine guns in battles against criminals, terrorist, and rogue cops.
Conclusion: Overall, C.O.P. The Recruit feels like it was released mid production. I think if this game was thoroughly tested and reworked it could have been an amazing title, unfortunately it flops pretty hard. Purchase at your own risk.
Summary: The DS celebrated its fifth birthday recently. Typically five years is a good, respectable run for a game console, but compared to its predecessors in the Gameboy line, the DS is still in diapers. Even then, it’s become obvious to me that the DS line’s tech is looking pretty long in the tooth.
Excerpt: Less entertaining than pepper spray in the eyes. If you take away everything that makes Grand Theft Auto edgy, exciting, and fun, you get COP: The Recruit . It could have made the third-person action genre viable on the Nintendo DS, but sadly it misses the mark.
Pros: Playable to a point, Terrible story, Controls suck, Looks awful
