The marketing guru who came up with the name Smash Cops deserves a pat on the back. In just two words, you immediately understand the appeal and concept of the game. You’re a cop, and you have to smash things.

Summary
An open-world battle racer with more crash-bang-wallop than a brass band in a bar-room brawl. It just needs a smidgen more dev to realise its full potential
RATING
8/10
