Isaiah Reed (Fishburne) hands the keys to his criminal empire down to his son Marcus (Waddell). This was a decision they both came to regret, as his now-former friend attempted to kill father and son. They failed, and Marcus exacted vengeance. His mentor, Lt. Terrence Higgins (Rourke), opts to leave him alone if he joins the NYPD. Five years later, he has become part of the department's Street Crime Unit (SCU). But during a police beat, Higgins dies in an explosion. Now, with the help of his boss (Hargitay) and a mysterious detective (Walken), he needs to find out what happened, whether he walks the straight line of the law or not. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


When Marcus (Avery Waddell) performs the first "Freddie the cabbie" side mission, he says, "Next they'll have me flying remote-control toys." This is a direct reference to Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (where Zero (David Cross) used RC helicopters to do battle with his nemesis Berkley). See more »

Good way to virtually tour NYC
31 May 2006 | by (Earth, Sol system) – See all my reviews

The coolest thing about this game is that it contains all of Manhattan. All the streets, anyway. Unfortunately, most of the buildings are generic with just a smattering of actual buildings and landmarks such as St. Patrick's and the UN building. You cannot enter into most of these buildings, however, with a few exceptions like Grand Central. The only buildings you can enter are generic restaurants, hotels, and laundries. And they are all the same - the interior of every hotel is exactly the same, as is every convenience store and strip club.

It was fun to roam the streets of Manhattan again, and safer than doing it for real. The game-play, however was pretty bad. The main story missions are somewhat amusing, but the regular police work is painfully repetitive. Stolen cars, fights among the homeless, rock bands wrecking hotels... you have to deal with these problems over and over and over.

This game might be appealing to anyone who has never seen, played, or heard of GTA: San Andreas. To everyone else, it's just a cheap, buggy, boring, knockoff. Forget playing the game. Just enjoy touring Manhattan without the normal traffic - sort of a Manhattan ghost town.
