C.O.P. The Recruit is a video game published by Ubisoft for the Nintendo DS. The game was announced at E3 2009 at the Nintendo conference.[2 ] The game was originally registered under numerous names, one of which being "Driver: The Recruit". [3 ]



The game follows Dan Miles, a former street racer who becomes a new recruit in the Criminal Overturn Program (C.O.P.). Under the terms of the C.O.P., Dan becomes a detective working to protect the citizens of New York against large-scale threats. Working with his mentor, Detective Brad Winter, Dan is investigating a series of terrorist attacks in the city when Brad is falsely arrested, putting the investigation on hold. While trying to uncover the truth behind Brad’s arrest, Dan goes undercover and returns to his life on the streets. Little by little he gets wrapped up in a deadly, widespread conspiracy and must work to prevent a potentially catastrophic attack on the city.[4 ]


The game is a third person shooter and a driving game, in an open-world city ranging at around 6 square miles. The game has around 60 missions with over 20 hours of gameplay. It's also possible, using the DS system's microphone (and the in-game PDA), to call the S.W.A.T. team, create barricades, road blocks, call an ambulance and access the city's camera system.[4 ]


Upon its release, C.O.P The Recruit received mixed but overall positive reviews. One criticized feature was where the player must call the nearest Police Station to arrest a criminal. Another part of the game criticized was the player could not kill, or run over a pedestrian. The game's positive reviews were mostly the games 3D environment and the graphics. The game won two E3 Awards. However, Go Fanboy gave the game a low score of 3.5 out of 10. The review highlighted very few positives and actually condemned the graphics that the publisher had touted as the selling point.[5]
