  • Summary: Pursuit Force is a driving/combat game that gives you the unique ability to jump between and fight on vehicles. The game follows the adventures of a rookie Police Officer working for Pursuit Force - an elite, vehicle-based crime fighting force chasing down criminal gangs across an entire fictional US state. Engage in deadly gun battles whilst chasing the criminals at top speed. Powerslide round corners, drive the wrong way thorugh traffic and push your vehicle to the max as you ride the enemies' customised cars with bullets. [BigBig] Expand

  1. Nearly perfect with its graphics that often look close to cinematic scenes and a whole host of strategies for nailing the bad guys.
  2. The game looks fantastic, controls like a dream and is brilliantly paced, elements that add up to a "must buy" in my book.
  3. If you like arcade action that obviously isn't overly complex but is a lot of fun to play, then give Pursuit Force a try. I think it is a game that will really surprise people.
  4. Pursuit Force isn’t an incredibly unique experience, but it is a lot of fun.
  5. Despite some thrills in the early going and the novelty of encountering new gangs, Pursuit Force depends too heavily on the clock to maintain excitement, eventually becoming a casualty of its own simplicity.
  6. A unique release in the sense that it could be a stepping-stone to bigger and better things. There is no reason Bigbig couldn’t flesh out what they have created already and release a console version.

    You should buy this game only if you like stabbing your hands with bits of glass like Batman does in Arkham Asylum. Either that, or you’re fairly confident the PSP’s build quality will ensure it surviving forehead-screen interface.

    Actually pretty fun at times. If you're expecting a realistic police simulator (I don't know why you would)
    DON'T BUY THIS And I'll tell you
    why eventually. If you want a police game where you are part badass, maybe. In this game you play as a police that murders EVERYTHING DAMN thing HE COMES IN CONTACT WITH (not civilians and other good people). I know the idea of killing every damn thing that is BAD around you is strange mixed with the concept that this game is about REMOVING CRIME. But this game is this game, and it is pretty damn strange.

    Not a game for me at all. I really liked the initial idea and the over-the-top approach, but the game itself is very old fashioned, like it came straight from early 90s arcade - tough, unforgiving, simplistic. The graphics are nice, but can become choppy if too much happens on screen. Sounds are forgettable (apart from the police boss - nice voice acting there), missions are very similar to each other (pursuit on road, pursuit on boat, pursuit on chopper etc.) and totally unrealistic driving mechanics along with strange shooting makes me feel I was playing an on-rails game. Much more of a Spy Hunter than Grand Theft Auto. For folks looking for some challenge and for arcade fans only. Expand
