    Few stories in games can successfully make me hate the “protagonist” and at the same time draw me compulsively further into the events and plot twists. Paired up with the simplistic and impressionistic art of the story frames, the atmosphere and the complexity of the intertwining yet opposing factions bandying for influence over hopelessly corrupt Jack Boyd and you have a Noir story set in the 80’s that could rival the classics.

    This is the Police 2 is a big step forward for Weaapy Studio, who delivered a much better experience compared to the previous game.

    An excellent sheriff simulator that should be a little shorter.

    While it’s far to long, This Is the Police 2 is a cool little game, with a interesting scenario and lot of different situations to work on. But most of our reproaches for the first game stand still.

    Interesting and direct, this game offers an intense management experience trying to make the Police Department work and also to discover the main character's past; it's also a little repetitive from the first release... and that is not sexy.

    An overall improvement on the original but the lack of focus encourages too many unwanted features, that dilute an otherwise interesting portrayal of law enforcement.

    The game pulls its punches when depicting the rot at the heart of a northern border city's law enforcement.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Dieses Spiel ist ein Meisterwerk

    Ich kann nicht von vielen Spielen behaupten, dass ich sie komplett durchgespielt habe und nicht irgendwann angefangen habe durchzurushen, weil es einfach zu langweillig wurde. This is the Police 2 hat alles zu bemängelnde vom ersten Teil richtig gemacht. Wo This is the Police 1 nur mit einer sehr interessante Story und mit ein paar echt coolen Momenten überzeugen kann, bietet der zweite Teil so viel Diversität. Man hat sich einfach so viel überlegt bei dem Spiel, ohne dass man die bereits bestehenden Stärken des Spiels runterkrubeln musste. Das Spiel überzeugt mit neuem Design, ein paar 3D cutscenes und den ständigen lustigen Dialogen.

    Ich bin gespannt ob es einen dritten Teil geben wird. Jack Boyd hat das Zeug dazu ein drittes Spiel zu füllen.

Presentaba una historia consistente y sobre todo entretenida, que arrastraba. Me gustó el conjunto diverso de personajes que ayudaron a construir la trama en la campaña, pero a costa de una experiencia generalmente defectuosa, particularmente con las operaciones tácticas. También reconozco que no tuve problemas con fallas gráficas o técnicamente tampoco. Recomiendo ligeramente este juego a aquellos que han jugado el primer juego. Expand

    Hanno aggiunto cose interessanti ma è strapieno di bug
    Anche la traduzione italiana non è il massimo

The game then takes 20 minutes to unload the story on you, with cut-scenes, that despite having a unique and well made art style, are poorly written and unnecessary. This might be on account of me not having played the first one though. The game play itself is a strategic turn-based puzzle that you have to solve, using the tools that each officer brings to the mission. After a few missions, they unfortunately get stale. The policing of the city adds another layer of depth, but again it suffers from a lack of depth and it becomes very apparent how to game the system to never have major problems.

    It is clear that a lot of effort went into the story, but it sadly detracts from the overall experience instead of adding anything. I never got engaged in the characters, mostly due to how poorly the script is written. The game also suffers from poor voice acting, this is often times no problem if the script itself is engaging.

    The game ends up coming just short in most of its elements. Granted i think i got halfway through, so i'm now aware if further elements are added that make it more engaging, but that shouldn't be necessary for a game like this.

    One thing they did really well however was the art style.

    blah blah blah + blah blah blah + 1 min of gaming + blah blah + blah blah blah

    The most boring game ever. Useless graphomania, endless cutscenes, bad characters burns your life, literally. 10% of gameplay time and 90% of that trash ? No thanks. The only one new thing is XCOM-style tactical missions even without saves?
    2/10.
