Pursuit Force chasing retail

Bigbig Studios' original PSP action racing game makes the jump from factory to stores with guns blazing.

by

SCEA is adding to the PSP's heretofore slim lineup of original intellectual properties with today's announcement that Pursuit Force is now available across the country.

A combination of action, shooting, and racing, Pursuit Force wears its Hollywood action-film clichés proudly. Capital City has been beset by five criminal gangs, and the police department so far has found its attempts to do things by the book to be ineffective. But the city is fed up with the crime, so it's time to turn to a maverick rookie cop who doesn't play by the rules but gets results. Players take control of the loose-cannon copper and hit the streets to take the gangs down, engaging in high-speed car chases and commandeering vehicles on the open road at 150mph. He's liable to kill himself with his renegade tactics--or die trying.

Pursuit Force lets players get behind the wheels of cars, motorcycles, trucks, and buses--more than 50 different rides in all. Beyond mayhem on the roadways, the game also includes speedboat, helicopter, and on-foot sections of gameplay across 30 different cases that need solving.

This is the first game from British developer Bigbig Studios, a development house founded in 2001 by former Codemasters employees. Pursuit Force is rated T for Teen and retails for $39.99. Check back later today for GameSpot's full review.

I enjoyed the demo, though it seemed a little too narrow in scope. I hope it's not just a 1 trick pony.

At wong wast, justwis will be swerved! Eagerly awaiting a US/UK comparison review. If it sucks, it won't be cuz they didn't try hard or wait long enough.

It has its moments. I'm just glad the PSP is getting some love to break the drought of retail offerings.
