Serve. Protect. Survive.

In the 21st Century, gangs have taken over L.A. Mutant crooks packin' thermo nukes, bio-agents, and other bad mojo are laying siege to the City of Angels. Hit the streets in a revolutionary hover-craft, walker, and all purpose justice dispenser. With ceramite armor, the latest plasma technology, and an awesome array of high-tech weapons, it's like playing "good cop/bad cop." Only without the good cop.

Two unique game modes:

  • Crime War: Reclaim 8 sections of crime-ridden L.A., alone or with a friend
  • Precinct Assault: A strategic battle against a friend or the computer controlled "Sky Captain."

Reviews:

Adrenaline Vault by Bob Mandel

"As mentioned earlier, Future Cop: LAPD is truly an arcade shooter experience where quick reflexes are critical. The level of realism in the game is not exceptional, and you never feel as if you are participating an accurate simulation of police activity. It is also interesting to note that if you just go in trying to blast everything to smithereens without some attempt at stealth, you will not last very long. The complex 3D paths you traverse contain many spots for you or your enemy to hide from assaults, and you need to use these in a tactical sense to survive. While nobody would confuse the experience here with the complex planning of a real-time strategy game, you cannot simply be mindless."

"Finally, as I have been pleasantly finding to be the case in several games I have encountered of late, Future Cop: LAPD has a real sense of humor. The sardonic comments of your radio contact at police headquarters are often really funny... What I like best about all this is that the net effect is to communicate that you are supposed to be having lighthearted fun..."

"...I find this offering to be a really pleasant surprise, a diamond in the rough that actually has been quite under-publicized given the game's value. The graphics are excellent, the music and sound are more than competent, and the gameplay is really fun. While Future Cop: LAPD does not set the world on fire with innovative new twists, arcade action fans will have a really hard time finding a better way to eat up their leisure time."
