Pursuit Force is a game that focuses on skill and reaction time, but isn't recommendable for everyone.

THE BAD: Some imprecise controls, frequent load times, and the later missions are extremely difficult.
Pursuit Force is a fun game that has some flaws.
GAMEPLAY is fun, but challenging. For the most part the protagonist jumps from car to car shooting the bad guys and hijacking their car. There are a few other diversions like the first person shooter from the helicopter, and a good amount of boat and on foot missions. There's also a Speed (Keanu Reeves) bus mission, however, the game definitely becomes repetitive. What's more, the difficulty increases as the game progresses, but the hero stays the same in terms of stats. Furthermore, while controlling cars and motorcycles is very responsive, the handling of motor boats is not and leads to a lot of frustration.
GRAPHICS are good. The game looks a lot like a Gran Theft Auto game except less detailed. The environments surprisingly look much better than the character models and vehicles. The menus are decent looking and the comic book style fits the game well.
SOUND is great. It is full of voice acting that adds to overall enjoyment of the game. The music is fast paced and exciting and the sound effects do a good job of differentiating from the many guns and vehicles.
VALUE is fair. Since Pursuit Force is split into many missions all with various difficulties. It takes approximately 8-15 hours to complete the career mode and you will be seeing the loading screen a lot. Moreover, other than the career mode, there aren't any other worthwhile extras.
OVERALL Pursuit Force is a game that focuses on skill and reaction time. The player has to be able to adapt to the game's steep difficulty. As a result, many people will be put off by how hard the game can be, so it is only recommendable to the most action/adventure enthusiasts.
