The game featured Snoop Dogg (who plays Goldie) and other characters.The game was designed to be played in a third person mode. The objective of the game is to fight to gain respect of rival gangs in South Central Los Angeles. If the player gains a gang's respect, then they will treat you differently than if they fear you.

At the time of announcement, there were very few details released about the game. However, one trailer and thirteen screenshots were made available by Midway.

Although the game was intended for a 2006 release, as of March 1, 2006, Fear and Respect has been officially canceled, as reported by GameSpot. It was believed that the game has been canceled because of growing competition within the urban-themed video games market. [1]
