Based on the popular FOX TV series, World's Scariest Police Chases will be turned into a videogame scheduled to arrive this Fall or Winter. Teeny Weeny Games will be developing WSPC while FOX themselves will be publishing it. If you've been living under a rock for the past two-three years then let me explain what WSPC is all about. Basically this is where recorded footage from a dashboard of a cop car or news station is sent to Fox and they air the best footage of cop and car chases in a one-hour show, I have always known that a videogame would be done out of this sooner or later and it looks like one for our aging PS is coming along soon.
While we saw very brief footage of the game in general, the graphics resemble Driver. Actually I thought that Reflections may have been behind the development of WSPC but Teeny Weeny Games is. At the moment we don't have any shots to prove the two games' resemblances but I will say that even the damage on the cars looks like Driver's. There are right now some pop-up issues but that's common in a game like WSPC. The car detail is pretty good, the police cars look detailed and just by looking at the footage that I saw, I easily identified all the cars in the game. When screenshots are released to the press we will certainly update this preview.
The gameplay is a reverse of Driver, instead of running away from the cops you are the cop chasing a criminal. There are many modes to play, first we have the story mode which stuffed with 50 missions. Then we have the Bad-Boy mode which is a mode where you are the bad guy and there are 15 missions there. The rest are Exploration, Race and DeathMatch (two players). All of this sounds great, and not only that but there are weapons involved too. 9mm pistols, shotguns, grenades, M16 Assault Rifle, and the killer LAW (Light Antitank Weapon). Gamers also have a choice of cooperative style gameplay as well a cops and robbers mode called Chase. If WSPC plays as well as it sounds on paper then this should be one title to look for.
