  • Summary: NARC is an in-depth, 3rd-person action/shooter video game set against a stylized modern-day backdrop of the War on Drugs. Playing as dual characters, Jack Forzenski and Marcus Hill, in the elite NARC squad, players must rid the world of the powerful international K.R.A.K. drug cartel. Using deadly firepower and police authority players will make the choice to play it straight or use and abuse narcotics to get that extra edge and quick cash. Players decide whether to play as a good or bad cop as they face the mean streets and criminal underworld that rules it. [Midway] Expand

    The controls are quite responsive, offering a wide assortment of combat moves, but the weak camera hinders them.
  2. I had fun playing the game, which is all that really matters. Some missions were frustrating, but the generous continue system helped repress some of the anger.
  3. Be aware that its vehicle-less gameplay resembles "State of Emergency" a lot more than it does "GTA: San Andreas." [June 2005, p.79]
  4. We like guns, we like city envirnments, and we like laughable drugs and violence references. AND we like arresting people. But we don't like Narc. No. Sorry. [PSM2]
  5. Quite simply a short and boring third person shooter that tries too hard to be edgy and just comes off as more sick and disgusting than anything else I've played.
  6. The game falls not only short of expectation, but also below what this great team is capable of.
  7. Crap aiming and a crap camera combine with boring, nonsensical missions to translate into horrid gameplay for the main story.
