Boring GTA knockoff sets new depravity low.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is truly for adults only -- and even then it's not much fun to play. The star rating given this game is based on quality of gameplay within this genre and not an endorsement of the violence in the game.

  • Summary: This game may be aimed at over 18s, but anyone over 18 is going to laugh in NARC’s silly disgusting face.

  • Excerpt: Anyone who was born circa 1980 or bought Midway’s recent Arcade Classics 2 package may remember NARC, a game about a couple of ultra violent DEA enforcers that are out to clean up the streets. It was a game that epitomized the “just say no” attitude of the late 1980s, yet retaining the satisfying over-the-top violence games (especially those from Midway) possessed at the time. Here we are fifteen years later and how times have changed.

NARC

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: NARC is an inherently dark game, and the graphics attempt to convey this feeling by placing the game in a perpetual night time city, complete with dark alleys, tall buildings, and unsavory looking people. The unsavory bit isn’t so much a result of style, but more because of deformities and glitches. There is little variety amongst the models of pedestrians, giving the streets a kind of clone world feeling.

NARC Review

  • Summary: NARC is short, rife with bugs, and basically not a lot of fun to play.
  • Pros: It's cheap, Good drug-themed soundtrack
  • Cons: Drug effects are little more than a novelty, GTA feel belies strictly linear mission structure, Arresting mechanic is ridiculous, Shock value is game's main asset

  • Excerpt: If you ever wondered what living in the ghettos of Detroit or Los Angeles was like, look no further than NARC. With a drug-dealer on nearly every street corner, purse snatchers lurking around every alley, and citizens not afraid to light up in front of the authorities, NARC you would think is a dark-underworld. Unfortunately, it’s much like real-life in some of America’s worst cities.

  • Excerpt: But I’m not a lazy cable news personality, I actually play the games I review (except for NRA Varmint Hunter & YourselfFitness but those reviews pretty much wrote themselves)… so you don’t have to. And there isn’t a game I can tell you not to play more than NARC, the game where dropping pills or smoking reefers for power ups is only the beginning of the suckiness in this game.
