GameZone writes: "Of the variety of genres that have been seeing huge support on home consoles, the open-world genre has been one that hasn't really been explored very much on the Nintendo DS. While recent titles like Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars have stepped up to the plate by offering huge worlds that capitalize on the strengths of Nintendo's handheld, compelling open action games haven't quite gotten a fair amount of developer support.
Ubisoft is looking to change all of that with their upcoming cop-action game, C.O.P.: The Recruit. The Recruit is geared towards changing the perception of what the DS is capable of, crafting a compelling and fun storyline and open gameplay that is set to dazzle gamers looking for a full open-world experience on their handheld."
