ST Format
Doubtless, Hill Street Blues isn't everyone's cup of tea. There are no high-drama action scenes or jazzy sound-effects to amaze you, but there is a solid game which gradually unveils its many secrets as you play it through. Worth a look if you found Sim City even remotely interesting.
ST Format
Hill Street Blues certainly has a plenty of potential to keep you going for months on end - there are so many different ways you can approach the solving of a crime, not to mention mistakes that you can make, that you're bound to find something new every time you load it up. If you haven't got much patience however, and you prefer your relationship with the games to play to be based on instant attraction you might find this a tad complicated to master.

Leider ist die ST-Fassung von Hill Street Blues qualitativ erheblich schlechter als die Amiga-Version, was sie auch den Hitstern kostet. War das Scrolling schon beim Amiga kein Höhepunkt. ist es hier einfach N%$argh!%$. Beim horizontalen Scrollen ruckelt das Bild nicht mehr, es springt sozusagen. Auch der Sound ist peinlich. Die Titelmelodie klingt unmöglich und die Soundeffekte (Schüsse, Autohupen, Schreie) ähneln nur noch einem Gekrächtze. Das alles bringt natürlich die Motivation in den Keller. Schade um so ein interessantes Game!
Power Play
Das Management eines ganzen New Yorker Polizeidistrikts ist auch auf dem ST kein leichtes Unterfangen. Wie im richtigen Leben wechseln sich Zeiten größter Hektik mit Phasen gähnender Langeweile ab.
