  • Summary: A routine stop for a traffic violation turns into a bloodbath as a drug dealer kills eight police officers. The DEA sends Detectives Jack Forzenski and Marcus Hill to help investigate a new mystery drug and to untangle a web of lies, betrayals, secrets, and temptations. As Jack and Marcus, your decisions determine whether you're a good cop or a bad cop--turn the drugs into evidence and become the hero, or sell them on the street to earn some cash. No matter what path you choose, NARC gives you the chance to bust criminals, wield an arsenal of hi-tech police weaponry, and engage in rough street fighting. Expand

    The controls are quite responsive, offering a wide assortment of combat moves, but the weak camera hinders them.

    The narrative is a bit thin-there's a new drug on the street called "Liquid Soul" and your task is to figure out where it's coming from-but once the fists and lead start flying, you won't really give a damn why you're doing what you're doing.
  3. The key phrase with NARC would seem to be "wasted potential."
  4. It wants so badly to be liked and allows you to break the rules like a good, over-the-top game really should. But it has flaws within its presentation, and it doesn't really keep your attention for long as you bust dealer after dealer.
  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 looks ugly, the controls are poorly done, and the storyline gets dull in a hurry. There is some decent action here and there, but quite frankly the game is so bad it smells worse then bad weed.
  7. When a modern day Xbox game can't humble a 17 year-old arcade game, you know something has gone horribly wrong.
