Ever wondered what GTA would be like if you played a cop rather than a bad egg of criminal intent? We reckon Pursuit Force could be the answer.[br]Currently in development at Bigbig Studios, a spin-off from WRC developers Evolution, Pursuit Force is a PSP driving game where you play a cocky young cop out to clean up the crime-riddled streets of Capital City.[br][br]There's over 400km of road and off-road to razz across as you chase down the thugs terrorising the city. High speed chases are the order of the day here, with a fat side helping of multi-vehicular madness - apparently you'll be able to leap between moving motors, clinging onto cars like that metallic bloke in Terminator 2.[br][br]No word on wireless multiplay yet, but a two-player pursuit mode could work brilliantly.[br]All in all it sounds a lot like GTA from the rozzer's point of view. It's a pretty big concept to stuff into the PSP, but the Evolution connection gives us confidence that the driving stuff should be spot on. Add in a hefty splattering of World's Wildest Police Chases-style pursuits and we could be looking at a monster.
