“Playing as straight-arrow hero Sonny Bonds, a traffic officer in the fictional city of Lytton, you will shoot a big-time drug dealer with a gun hidden in the handle of a pimp cane, thwart a terrorist airplane hijacking, single-handedly bust a Satanic murder cult and, queasily, “rescue” a frequently-imperiled sex worker by grooming her to be your housewife.”

I don’t remember clicking “groom sex-worker”. :/

Cool stuff. But it's only shocking if you didn't know the state of gaming at the time. After all, this is the era that gave us Harvester and I Have No Mouth and Must Scream.

Pre-ESRB gaming was fucking awesome.
