Pursuit Force casts players in the role of a rookie police officer looking to apprehend members of five ruthless gangs that lurk in and around the fictitious Capital City. Players will be actively involved in high-speed chases, aerial assaults, and on-foot battles against the likes of the Vixens, the Killer 66, the Convicts, the Warlords, and the Capellis. While the theme immediately draws comparisons to the Grand Theft Auto series, Pursuit Force tosses in some original elements to help set it apart. Instead of carjacking in the "traditional" sense, players must commandeer vehicles while traveling at upwards of 150 miles per hour.
Taking control of rival vehicles involves chasing them down, maintaining a certain range, and pressing a button when an icon appears on the screen. The character will then leap to the vehicle and engage in a battle for the wheel, usually consisting of gunfire and defensive moves. This unusual play mechanic is used throughout the title's 30 missions, and the over 50 vehicles available range from buses and motorcycles to powerboats and helicopters. Capital City itself spans an estimated 250 miles of freeways, rivers, city streets, and back alleys as players travel to all five districts under criminal control. Each gang has a specific agenda and employs different tactics that must be overcome for players to clean up the streets and retire a hero. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
