Is it Future Cop: LAPD? The single player was a standard 3/4 view type action game but the multi-player had a competitive mode very similar to a tower defense game. One of I believe 3 ps1 games I still own, the others being Bushido Blade 2 and Colony Wars
Holy shit are you awesome.
I miss colony wars, I wish that had a next gen update.
I played it briefly and I enjoyed it greatly. I'm not fighting game expert so the more deliberate pace is for me and I fucking love the closeups w/ the xray type view, showing the bones breaking and organs getting smashed.
I never have been a fan of MK though, when I was a kid I was street fighter all the way. But I'll probably pick this up.
I wish to hell I could afford the awesome edition w/ the sweet arcade stick
