Dive into a deep story of corruption, crime and intrigue. Take the role of gritty Police Chief Jack Boyd, and come face to face with the ugly underbelly of Freeburg, a city spiraling the drain. Will Jack reach his retirement with a nice stack of bills, or will he end up broken ... or worse?
Manage your staff, respond to emergencies, and investigate crimes in a city on the brink of chaos. The mafia underworld maneuvers behind the scenes, sinking their claws ever deeper into the city, even as the mayor is ready to exploit every situation to his political advantage.
Choose your approach to each situation as it unfolds. Sometimes you'll be responding to a developing crisis at a crime scene, or negotiating with Freeburg's crime bosses. Sometimes you'll find yourself dodging questions in the press room, or even the occasional cross-examination in the witness box. Can you keep this pressure cooker from exploding, at least for long enough to stash away a nice retirement nest egg?
Your mission is clear: make $500,000 in 180 days, before Jack Boyd reaches retirement. How? That's up to you!
Decisions, decisions! This Is the Police is all about a dark story and how you react to it. Whatever you decide, your choices will influence the game - and the fate of Jack Boyd.
The Good, the Bad, and... the Ugly? The Chief of Freeburg's Police Department deals with all kind of people. It is up to you to find the bad guys, and decide how to deal with them.
Carry out your duties. As head of Freeburg PD, Jack deals with all sorts of challenges every day: responding to emergencies, managing his officers, defending the department against City Hall and a corrupt mayor, and much more.
If you had asked me my opinion on my first day or two playing it, I would have hands down said yes, buy this and play this. It?s an atmospheric strategy simulation, its got a decent story, and the cut scenes (although there are a lot) are enjoyable. I got my half million (your characters goal) in about half the time the game gives you. The game doesn't end there, but I wanted to see what other options did. There are some big decisions that change parts of the game. But when I went back and started it up again, I felt uneasy about the racist, homophobic, and misogynistic themes that I feel weren't addressed. This is a game about police, albeit set in a former time. But, because it is this day and age, this political climate, it could have been so much more, but it didn't try to be. That?s not necessarily a bad thing. A lot of gamers won?t notice and/or care. That?s fine. But for me, it brought my opinion of the game a little lower. I still recommend it if you like these kinds of games. It?s still enjoyable, I am stilling playing it through to the end.
Just bottling down my overall feelings for this game So, where do I begin? From the general awesomeness of the darkness created, which lowers the mood, or the pulse-thrilling gameplay, where every second matters, or the mind-bending consequences of every action that you commit? The amazingness started from the moment the game started. It enthralled me from the moment of the starting cutscene. From then, all the way until I had to stop because I forgot to plug in my charger, it completely captured my brain. It starts out kind of boringly, but soon after, if you take it seriously, and if you think about all the times cops were portrayed in other games or movies, well this game changes it all. Each and every single cop is finally a living (well practically) being, and has their own thoughts, own story, own life, and you have to take care of all of them. Slowly, if you let yourself be immersed into the game, you will, I assure you, become enthralled.
