Playing C.O.P. The Recruit one can't help wondering what could have been. The strong graphics remain unsupported by the rest of the game, making it feel as if they are the shell of a powerful engine with nothing inside. It was like driving a car with the body of a Lamborghini but the engine of a John Deere tractor. Thus, what could have been a competitor for Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is left gasping for air in the dust and smoke of its own flaws.
