In this third-person shooter, players assume the role of police officer Davis Russell and his partner as they search for a girl in a war-torn city. Players use machine guns, shotguns, rocket launchers, and grenades to kill human-like soldiers and robot enemies in frenetic combat. A gravity-altering device (i.e., Gravlink) can also be used to throw vehicles and objects at nearby enemies. Battles are highlighted by realistic gunfire, explosions, screams of pain, and large blood-splatter effects that stain the surrounding environment. Some attacks result in dismembered body parts, and finishing moves can be used to dispatch weakened enemies: stomping on their heads; impaling them with an assault rifle. Players can also choose to attack unarmed civilians (there is no penalty or reward), and dead bodies continue to incur damage when hit (e.g., blood spurts, breaking into pieces). During the course of the game, some of the dialogue contains suggestive remarks (e.g., “Would you bang that?”); in one cutscene, a character jokes about Davis's love life while making a thrusting gesture. A city billboard depicts a faded advertisement for a strip club (e.g., Sassy Twins). The words “f**k” and “sh*t” can be heard in dialogue.
