Crimewave (クライムウェーブ) is a car-based shoot-'em-up developed and published by Eidos Interactive for the Sega Saturn in 1996. It is a Saturn exclusive, and not to be confused with the similarly titled "Crime Wave" seen on Amiga, Atari ST and DOS computers in 1990. Likewise it should not be confused with the 1983 Apple II "Crime Wave" game.

The game has the player drive one of eight vehicles around a city destroying criminals. The city is split into sections, which can only be accessed when crime levels have fallen to a certain value.
