Storyline

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

Don't listen to the negative reviews!!
2 March 2006 | by Mission31See all my reviews

people who don't like this game are total idiots!! This game is amazing! The graphics are a million times better than grand theft autos. You can extort clerks, you can plant evidence, you can frisk suspects,12+ bonus missions,you can shoot,you can drive , you can paddle, you can interrogate,you can go in nearly every building,search the trunk of a car,you can solve street crime,50+ story missions,buy guns, buy moves,2 5 part bonus missions(fight club and street racing),Buy cars or steal cars,buy clothes, change you hair style and much more!! People talk about glitches as if they happen all the time during play-its not true!!!!! I've had it happen to me 8/50 times of play. This game is the best police game, or for that matter, crime game you'll find on the market!!!!!!!!!!Also has a gripping story with a twist at the end.
