Drug Wars (Crime Patrol 2) -- American Laser Games

Drug Wars the exciting follow-up to Crime Patrol, takes you from small town to big city in your battle against the drug trafficker cartels. Working with the border patrol your ultimate goal is the kingpin himself. Featuring play with light-gun, standard controller or mouse, either one or two-players simultaniously can take on the action.

Shoot, shoot, shoot! Missions, missions, missions! Sure, killing is cool, but ALG shooters usually suck and this one didn't do much to change my opinion. I wish you didn't get docked everytime you kill an innocent... GEEEEZ, talk about picky.

Not as exciting as the first Crime Patrol title, Drug Wars seems to take forever to get back into play once you shoot an innocent or die. Accuracy was problematic at best, and there were more times than not where I was positive I had hit my target, yet I still got shot! Cinemas and overall FMV are pretty standard ALG fare and nothing to get to excited about. The story isn't all that fantastic either...
