Nick Kang was an LAPD homicide detective, up until his indefinite suspension due to his "loose-cannon" style and multiple uses of excessive force and property damage. However, his old Chief has brought him back and offered him a job with the EOD (Elite Operations Division), a recently-founded special unit which has jurisdiction over all of Los Angeles. Now as the EOD's first field agent, Nick can use the same over-the-top methods that got him suspended in the first place to take on the City of Angels' toughest criminals. In a wide, branching storyline, he'll have to stop powerful Russian and Chinese crime syndicates by driving, fighting and shooting his way through the streets of LA. Written by Anonymous

User Reviews

Pretty bad is an understatement
2 September 2006 | by Dr_House_MDSee all my reviews

The good: It ends.

The bad: I have a 1000 word minimum to explain it.

Besides the cliché story and bad acting, the game is very flat and the city is virtually the same everywhere you go. There are many bugs, and although you can finish the story however you like to through a branching storyline, the main character often tells you to kill the 20 guys shooting at you saying "guns are overrated", even though it is very important to kill them.

About the bugs, there are many, many of them. The game itself is awful with awful graphics not even comparable to GTA3, which was released 2 years before hand, and not to mention some others.

If you haven't played or purchased this game yet, please don't because it was not worth paying $80 for a budget game at release, and it is not worth even the low price it may have now.
