XBOX PREVIEW: NARC

While the game has been pushed back from the original release date, the classic remake of NARC is now almost complete. I have been able to get more info and a few new screen shots. You will also now see the full list of features. It was rumored that the game was shelved by VIS and Midway. While there was some revamping of the game it has not been canceled.

The game is going to be different from the classic version and there will be several different things added to this one. It is also going to be released at a budget price of $19.95. Lets hope this is a good sign and not a bad one. While the game will feature a 2-player Co-Op mode there will be no online feature. Take a look at the list of features and the latest screen shots. Also read the past previews for more on the game.

Press:

NARC is an in-depth, third-person action/shooter videogame set against a stylized modern-day backdrop of the War on Drugs. Playing as dual characters, Hitman and Max Force, in the elite NARC squad you must rid the world of the powerful international K.R.A.K. drug cartel. Find them, bust them and/or kill them to bring justice to action-packed, crime-ridden, drug-infested streets. In NARC, players have an arsenal of weapons to use as well as down-and-dirty hand-to-hand fighting skills.


Features:

  • · Nonstop, action-packed drug-busting mayhem. As Hitman and Max Force (the storyline drives which one you control in each level), you must rid the world of the K.R.A.K. organization's drug-infested corruption.
  • Busting Criminals. Unique to NARC, busting criminals is a good way to increase your score and is critical to solving mission objectives.
  • Play as a good NARC or bad NARC. You decide how you want to accomplish your missions. Pursue illegal deals with drug dealers or be the law abiding NARC cop. It's up to you.
  • Combat with Firearms. Being a cop in streets riddled with crime, you're appropriately loaded with powerful weapons including revolvers, a 100-shot submachine pistol, assault rifles, shotguns, grenade launchers, rocket launchers and a flamethrower. Fire on the criminals in standard third-person perspective or use a zoomed-in 3rd person view for a perfect "limb" shot! Bats, crowbars, knives, axes and other street weapons are also available.
  • Unarmed Combat. An intuitive and fun combat system will allow you to take out the garbage without weapons. It is a rough, authentic street-fighting style with big wild punches, head-butts, knee-strikes, grappling and throwing.
  • Ambient Crime. The world of NARC is extremely violent and crime-ridden with drug deals, vandalism, bag-snatching and car theft. These crimes are not related to your mission, but can help you earn additional respect if stopped.
  • Worldwide "drug" locals. NARC's plot takes the player on an action adventure around the globe in pursuit of the evil drug baron, Mr. Big. Your hunt begins in the USA and continues through Hong Kong, Eastern Europe and ultimately, Mr. Big's private island.
  • Stylized look. NARC captures the urban grittiness of reality while infusing it with an ultra-cool, hip attitude and style of the drug street culture.
  • Comprehensive, licensed "street" soundtrack. Tunes from the '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s and today reflect the grittiness and toughness of the drug-infested cities of NARC.
