Good but violent

This game is really a slightly convoluted version of cops and robbers. Although the gameplay is realistic but kid friendly some of the story isnt. In cutscenes there are videos of armed police raiding places, public disorder and a disturbing story of a police officer severely injured on duty.

This title has:

Easy to play/use
Too much violence
