Summary

Police Quest, A View of What Police Departments could be like.

The Good

Ah when Adventure games where actually the norm, and before there was FPS games, Sierra made all the great games. This is one of them, designed to show us what a Police Quest would be like. The interface is easy to use, and the puzzles are fun to solve. Trying to get the maximum points is a challege, unless you have a walk throught, but this is a game that brings back memories of a 386 or slower. Oh, and PC speaker sound rules.

The Bad

A Police Quest, why police I dunno, this is coming from a company that has games about a guy that is trying to have sex so do figure. Lets face it, you have to like adventure games, slow adventure games with alot of puzzles to like this game. If thats not for you, you will hate this game.

The Bottom Line

A true Classic that should be played by everyone to see what gaming used to be like.
