Virtua Cop PC Game 1996 Overview:
Players assume the position of cops and use a light-weight gun to attack jailbirds and advance through the game, with penalties for hitting residents.
Virtua Cop was notable for its use of real-time D polygon graphics with texture mapping, with Sega advertising it as “the world’s first texture-mapped, polygon action game”. It was one of the first games to allow the player to shoot through glass.
Despite some initial skepticism over its introduction of D polygons in a genre that previously used realistic digitized sprites (most notably Lethal Enforcers), Virtua Cop went on to become a commercial success and received critical acclaim for enhancing the genre with its D graphics, camera system, realistic animations, and ability to target specific body parts with realistic consequences.
It was influential on later shooter games, with D polygons being adopted by subsequent light gun shooters such as Time Crisis and The House of the Dead instead of the digitized sprites previously used in the genre, as well as inspiring the first-person shooter GoldenEye 007.
