About this game

This Is the Police is a strategy/adventure game set in a city spiraling the drain. Taking the role of gritty Police Chief Jack Boyd, you'll dive into a deep story of crime and intrigue. Will Jack reach his retirement with a nice stack of bills, or will he end up broken ... or worse?

- 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.

- Solve Investigations and gather evidence against the criminal gangs of Freeburg.

- Deal with the competing powers of the city. Everyone offers you favors, and each one comes at a price.

- Rich and fully voiced story: Jack Boyd is portrayed by Jon St. John, the voice of Duke Nukem.

The idea of the game is cool but the execution is kind of whack. It's fun to be making constant decisions and it has a good management sim layout. But there's too much randomness where you get shafted really hard and can't really come back from it. Too much repetitiveness. Would rather have better gameplay than so many cut scenes. If you lose early and try to replay then you have to go through the exact same decision trees and then it's just a matter of memorization.

Love the gameplay, the setting, the music and art style. Two VERY big issues I've run into, however, are 1. The game uploads saves extremely infrequently, so I lost 30 days of progress when I had to get a new phone. And 2. The game WILL NOT STAY RUNNING. Do not put your phone to sleep, don't go send a text message, don't do anything else or the game will relaunch when you open it back up, losing any progress you made on your current day. Devs had no idea what they're doing with the mobile port.

Game is really fun and always finds a way for me to keep playing. The story I find interesting and not too overly complicated. What is complicated are the investigations and how you can get stuck at some parts of the game and need to restart the week to get back on track. I really don't like how hard the game is sometimes and how much time it takes to complete the story including the many retries I've had to do.
