Midway Games Inc. (NYSE: MWY), a leading interactive entertainment publisher and developer, announced that NARC® has shipped to retail outlets nationwide for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and the Xbox® videogame system from Microsoft. A mission-based 3rd-person action game, NARC is set against a stylized, modern-day backdrop of the War on Drugs. NARC, the game that Maxim gave 4 out of 5 stars stating, "Play dirty and you may lose your badge, proving the long arm of the law isn't above reaching into anybody's trousers and squeezing hard," pits players as two elite NARC squad members Marcus Hill, a DEA Agent with a squeaky clean image and Jack Forzenski, a cop on probation and fresh out of rehab.
"With the maturation of the video game market, the need for games that appeal to an older audience is quickly growing and the content of those games have to reflect this trend," said Steve Allison, chief marketing officer, Midway. "Our goal with NARC is to give players the chance to play through an interactive crime saga where the player will face the temptations and choices of an undercover police officer without holding anything back."
NARC is an in-depth, third person action/shooter video game set against a stylized modern-day backdrop of the War on Drugs.
