Upping the controversy

Midway is testing the limits in NARC, the remake of their arcade hit from the 90s. In short, you are a cop on the narc squad, but you can sell the drugs you capture, and even use them yourselves. Partially it sounds clever, partially it sounds like courting controversy for the sake of it, much like the Postal series, or most games by Acclaim.

    Post GTA3/GTA:VC . . . someone at Midway said, ‘We gotta do something like that!!’. Someone else said, ‘Well . . . we have this game from back in the day . . .’

    And ‘NARC:The remake’ was born.
