Pursuit Force designer promises "the whole cow" for meatier PSP sequel


Designers say the darnest things sometimes. Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice lead designer for Chris Whiteside recently sat down for an interview with IGN and immediately responded to past forum suggestions and direct pleas for more content in the sequel. According to Chris, "many people commented on forums that they wished there was a little more 'meat on the bone', and with Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice you get the whole cow." No kidding.

For the second go-round, the team of developers decided to sit down for a fireside chat with Hollywood script writers to encapsulate that "blockbuster-type feel" and from the sounds of it, it worked. The extra content includes Pursuit Force "recruits" that will have "their own behaviors and characteristics" of which to help the player progress. The game will also feature a new "Boss" feature, in which the boss battles seem more of a stage on their own, taking the player "onto huge vehicles and navigating huge hazards to reach your opponent." Lets see. 24 new weapons (including our all-time favorite in just about any game, the flamethrower), assault rifles, rocket launchers, 54 drivable (and more responsive) vehicles, control sentry guns, hovercrafts, 4-player ad hoc wireless, story mode with purchasable content, three difficulty settings and more ... the whole cow, no kidding. Look for more on Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice as we near its September release.

SGD '07: Pursuit Force Extreme Justice


Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice is officially heading to America this fall. Players will once again play as an acrobatic cop who will do anything to stop the gang violence plaguing the streets. Unlike the prequel, players won't have to do it alone: four new playable characters join the adventure. The game looks to be quite massive, featuring more than 50 levels in seven distinct environments. Sony estimates that the game offers 20 hours of gameplay right off the bat -- and that doesn't even include planned downloadable content packs (a la Wipeout Pure).

There are 12 different vehicle types, including hovercrafts and new "boss vehicles" specifically designed for boss encounters. Extreme Justice will also offer an expanded weapons arsenal: more than 30 in all. The game also includes four-player multiplayer. Unfortunately, it's Ad-Hoc only (we hope that will change).

Check out screenshots from Sony Gamers Day in our gallery below. Then, go past the break to see a video of the game in action.

GameStop reveals listing for new Syphon Filter

Is Syphon Filter returning to PSP? According to an updated GameStop release list, the answer is yes. Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow joins the newly revealed SOCOM: Tactical Strike and a US-release for Pursuit Force 2 in the retailer's latest update to their database. If Gamespot's investigating is to be believed, Logan's Shadow should hit PSP systems first -- September 4th. Afterwards, Pursuit Force 2 and Tactical Strike should release on September 25th and October 2nd, respectively.

Retailers are notorious for revealing unannounced titles accidentally, giving this report a great deal of weight. With Syphon Filter joining the PSP lineup again later this year, it's clear that PSP owners are going to have a lot of games to play this fall.

Apprehend these new Pursuit Force 2 screens


Although flawed in many ways, Pursuit Force was a blast. Playing as an extreme, acrobatic cop, gunning down gangs in high-octane car chases, is always fun. The game didn't garner any headline-grabbing sales, but a sequel's already in the works, this time for both PSP and PS2.

Jeux-France has collected an assortment of pictures from the upcoming sequel, and it looks to provide more of the same. But wait ... is that a tank in the background? It looks like Extreme Justice is going to up the ante quite a bit. Check out some screens, after the break.

Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice heads to PSP & PS2


I thoroughly enjoyed the first Pursuit Force (pictured above), a high-octane racer-shooter that has you jumping and gunning from car to car. It perfectly emulated the experience of being in a Hollywood action movie, and although the game was short (and somewhat shallow), it met moderate success on the PSP.

Now, a sequel is heading to both the PSP and PlayStation 2 platforms. Extreme Justice will have players fighting warring gangs once again. Four new recruits to the Pursuit Force will provide support for the player throughout the game. As with the original, the player will commandeer a number of vehicles, including jet skis, helicopters and more. A nice addition to the sequel is multiple difficulty levels: a great addition for those that found the first too hard for their tastes.

The PSP version will feature 4-player ad-hoc multiplayer, and the PS2 version will feature 2-player split-screen. The game is scheduled for a summer 2007 release.

Real life Pursuit Force video

You've most likely heard about Pursuit Force. The game's been out for a while, but for those of you not in the know: you play a cop that'll use some pretty severe tactics to get your job done. This commercial, and that freaky Twisted Metal commercial from the other day prove how awesome strange European marketers are.
