NARC is an all-new remake of the 1988 cult arcade classic of the same name, which was the first action/shooter videogame to put players in the middle of the war on drugs. Assuming the role of Hitman and Max Force, ex-partners reluctantly reunited as members of the elite NARC squad, gamers must rid the world of the powerful international drug cartel, K.R.A.K., which is run by the evil drug lord, Mr. Big. To stop the spread of the new ultra-powerful designer street drug, Liquid Soul, gamers must use street-style, hand-to-hand combat and a large array of weapons against enemies.
