Future Cop L.A.P.D. (PSone Classics) Reviewed by Cyril Lachel on . In a lot of ways Future Cop L.A.P.D. is nothing more than a mindless shooter. But I'm fine with that, considering that most of the PSone Classics released have been deep role playing games and niche fighters. The gameplay is solid and the story is long enough to warrant the six dollars. I did run into some frustrating gameplay decisions throughout the game, but it's nothing that most people can't overlook! Rating: 71%

What Is It? Forget knocking on people's doors, interviewing suspects and dealing with a mountain of paperwork, because that's not how they do things in Future Los Angeles! If Future Cop L.A.P.D. is to be believed, law enforcement will be done with giant mech suits and non-stop shooting. On the other hand, at least the traffic has cleared up a little.

In Future Cop L.A.P.D. you take control of a Mechwarrior-style suit and motor around a giant labyrinthine world fighting bad guys and picking up power-ups. There are eight different sections of Los Angeles, each requiring your special kind of justice (aka blowing everything to pieces). Although not one of the PlayStation's biggest games, Future Cop has a lot of charm and character to make this worth considering on the PSN/SEN store.

Does It Still Hold Up? The pictures make it look like an uncontrollable mess, but thankfully that's not the case. The gameplay works well and there's a surprising amount of variety between stages. The real problem is the check point system, which requires players to start all over from the start of a level when they die. This would be fine with shorter levels, but can be a real headache considering how large everything is. The graphics can also be a little hard to see on the PSP's screen, but isn't an issue on the PlayStation 3.

Is It Worth The Money? In a lot of ways Future Cop L.A.P.D. is nothing more than a mindless shooter. But I'm fine with that, considering that most of the PSone Classics released have been deep role playing games and niche fighters. The gameplay is solid and the story is long enough to warrant the six dollars. I did run into some frustrating gameplay decisions throughout the game, but it's nothing that most people can't overlook. Even if this is not one of the best PSone games on Sony's network, it's still worth checking out until something more substantial comes out.
