CU Amiga
Once 'realistic 3D graphics' now look very jaded, with psychedelic colour schemes providing tell-tale signs that this game's been converted from the EGA PC version. Still they were good for the time and don't detract from the action. Police Quest is a full-blown classic which will keep you playing right to the very end.

Your Amiga
The depth of detail in Police Quest is extraordinary and anybody looking for a realistic police adventure should look no further.

Amiga Computing
Although rather dated, Police Quest is a really playable game and makes a nice change to your usual adventure.

Police Quest 1 är mycket välgjort, realistiskt och charmigt, och det är roligt att åka runt och klara de olika uppdragen, men spelet innehåller helt enkelt för lite av äkta äventyrskänsla och utmaning för att falla mig i smaken. De som gillade Kings Quest tycker däremot säkert också om Police Quest. Klart slut, och om ni skaffar er Police Quest 1, så var försiktiga där ute...

Great idea but too self-limiting. If you have the patience, though, you'll definitely enjoy it.

Joker Verlag präsentiert: Sonderheft
Wie bei den anderen Sierra-Frühwerken lacht uns 3D-Klötzchengrafik an, und der Parser wartet auf englische Befehlseingaben. Im übrigen wird auf dem PC per Joystick oder Tastatur gesteuert, was wesentlich besser klappt als die eher zähe Mausabfrage bei den ST- und Amigaversionen, die ansonsten 1:1 umgesetzt wurden. Eine aufpepeppte VGA-Version mit der neuen Iconleiste steht kurz vor der Vollendung, hier wird dann hoffentlich auch der miserable Sound etwas ohrenfreundlicher.

Graphically it's, shall we say. basic? It's also not wildly exciting so you'll soon be watching Shoestring again.

Zzap!
maybe if you like Sierra games and can ignore all the sudden death situations they bung in as a matter of course and don't mind some pretty basic graphics, you might get a fair bit of fun out of this. As for me, I can do without loads of really annoying death scenes, uninteresting gameplay and not-very-exciting interactive graphics - especially for 25 quid. Think I'll buy myself a policeman's hat and start looking important down Ludlow Bridge instead - it's cheaper and there's a lot more scope for violence. Huaaargh!
