GORMLEY, Ontario, Canada - July 2, 2002 - Digital Leisure today announced its release of a remastered version of the American Laser Games' smash arcade hit Crime Patrol 2: Drug Wars. Digital Leisure, the leading publisher of interactive DVD adventures, has re-mastered Drug Wars into a fully interactive adventure for DVD movie players that is also compatible with PlayStation 2 and X-Box platforms. The remastered version is highlighted by spectacular video quality and all the shooting action of the original laserdisc adventure. Players use their DVD remote controls to aim and fire, as the notorious Lopez and his South American Drug Cartel strive to ship their white powder across the border and into major metropolises.
Players begin the game by joining the police force in Sierra County to help the sheriff rid the town of drugs. There'll be car chases, drug busts and plenty of action so get your trigger finger ready and help put the drug dealers where they belong - behind bars! If you prove yourself, you'll move up through the ranks to fight the drug trade in the big city, infiltrate the border drug smuggling ring and ultimately confront the Cartel on their own turf - South America!
Originally produced by American Laser Games as a laserdisc arcade shooting game, Crime Patrol 2: Drugs Wars is available from Digital Leisure remastered for DVD and will be available this fall for CD-ROM. The DVD version, as well as the PlayStation 2 and Xbox compatible versions, utilize their respective remote controls to position the gun sight and fire. The CD-ROM version supports light guns from Act-Labs as well as mouse control.
"Fighting the war on drugs has been a popular cultural theme for decades, with such exciting dramas as Miami Vice and the movie Scarface just to mention two among many," said David Foster, general manager of Digital Leisure. "The live action of Drug Wars enables players to put themselves in the shoes of fictional and real-life heroes who put their lives on the line every day, working hard to keep dangerous drugs off the streets and out of the hands of our children. I think the game also sends a strong message to the youth of America in that eventually all the characters in the game realize that old adage: 'Crime Does Not Pay'."
Other American Laser Games titles from Digital Leisure include the recently released Mad Dog McCree and Who Shot Johnny Rock?
