Officer Alex Murphy, killed in the line of duty, but perhaps better known as the resurrected cyborg police officer: Robocop. He's back in New Detroit to clean the streets from crime, corruption and the latest OCP scheme. Following his Prime Directives (#1 Serve the Public Trust. #2 Protect the Innocent. #3 Uphold the Law. #4 CLASSIFIED) you'll embark on a first person shooter, taking on a variety of missions to uncover a new drug that's been spreading among the city. To get the evidence you need, you'll need to shoot through bad guys, arrest the criminals that give up and rescue any civilians who are too close to the line of fire. Written by Shawn Watson

The best videogame adaption of a movie
4 January 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was my first videogame as a kid, on the Nintendo Entertainment System. It is alot like the movie, including it's sound. The music sounds like an exact replica of the movie's theme, the gun sounds like Robocop's gun, and the game plays out the same as the movie. The game's only flaw, is that it is a bit short. I'd recommend this game to anyone who enjoys older videogames, and the movie Robocop.
