    Starsky & Hutch is an arcade driving shooting game where you play as undercover cops. Drive around the city shooting power-ups and criminals as they try to escape the law. The best technique is smashing them into buildings and other cars.

    Conclusion:
    Starsky & Hutch installed and played perfectly. The only problem I initially had was the launcher wouldn't appear due to not using the Virtual Desktop. The solution? Use the Virtual Desktop... Otherwise, the game performed perfectly.
