Written and directed by renowned filmmaker John Singleton (Boyz N the Hood, Baby Boy and 2 Fast 2 Furious) Fear & Respect is a cutting-edge, third-person action/adventure videogame realistically depicting life on the intense urban streets of South Central LA. Players step into the streets fresh from prison as a "retired" OG named Goldie, played by a 22 year old Snoop Dogg. Players must shoot, brawl and explore their way through recognizable landmarks such as the Nickerson Gardens housing project and the LA Twin Towers prison. The entire story is set against the backdrop of a sweltering South Central summer. On these streets, it's all about reputation, where players decide if they want enemies to look at them with fear – or with respect.
