Le résultat est splendide et les missions exigent réflexion. Une réussite totale !

Blazing action, resplendent graphics, and an intelligent story line – G-POLICE has it all. If you rate a game's enjoyment by its “wow” factor, put this one at the top of your list.

The training missions will be essential to your progress. I must have spent a good hour practicing maneuverers and getting to grips with the controls. Once I had stopped ramming my craft into the skyscrapers I felt confident to begin the first mission. The first six levels were fairly easy but then the difficulty steps up a notch. By level ten I could turn my craft on a pin and the game became more enjoyable. Some of the missions were a little short, perhaps a few breaks between tasks would have allowed me to patrol the streets and take in some of the splendid scenery. The short redraw distance is soon forgotten when eight enemy craft are buzzing on your tail.

G-Police ist eine echte Überraschung. Was auf den ersten Blick nach 3D-beschleunigtem Blendwerk riecht, entpuppt sich schon in den ersten Missionen als enorm spannendes und abwechslungsreiches Actionspiel mit einer hervorragenden Hintergrundgeschichte. Der Spieler ist ständig motiviert, seine Aufträge perfekt zu absolvieren, um die zusätzlichen Geheimmissionen zu entdecken und hinter das Geheimnis der beiden Konzerne zu kommen. Steuerung, Missionsdesign und Schwierigkeitsgrad sind vorbildlich und machen G-Police zu einem Highlight im Action-Genre; man fühlt sich an glanzvolle Wing Commander-Tage erinnert. Besitzer einer 3Dfx-Karte erhalten außerdem eines der optisch eindrucksvollsten Spiele mit brillanten Licht- und Grafikeffekten. Die absolute Krönung wäre ein Mehrspieler-Modus gewesen, um sich mit Freunden herzhafte Duelle in den Häuserschluchten zu liefern.

Avec ce shoot them up futuriste, de bonne facture, la prise en main est aisée. Seul problème : son affichage tardif des décors.

Tulevalla millennialla ei yhteiskunnalla ole enää varaa helläkätisyyteen. Luonnonvarojen loppumisesta johtuneiden sotien jälkeen hallitukset romahtivat ja suurkorporaatiot ottivat niiden tehtävät, halliten säälimättömällä kädellä. Uhatkin ovat vakavampaa luokkaa. G-Policessa pelaaja on yksi futuristiseilla taisteluhelikoptereilla järjestystä pitävistä poliiseista, jotka alkavat selvittää raskaasti aseistautuneen, anarkiaa lietsovan rikollisjärjestön tekemisiä.

In G Police, players take the role of Jeff Slater, who joins the G Police to pilot a heavily armed DASA- Kamov gunship, with an ulterior motive of discovering the truth behind the death of his sister. The stage is set for one of the biggest and best PlayStation action/strategy titles yet, with smooth FMV and a variety of missions that cover two CDs. Unfortunately, one serious problem pulls G Police down from what could have been a possible "Grade A" title. The horrendous draw-in throughout the game hinders much of the experience. Despite this problem, G Police remains an outstanding title that many will enjoy, but not at the same level of excellence that gamers were hoping for.

Der einzigartige Mix aus 3D-Militarismus à la "Wing Commander" und düsterer "Blade Runner"-Kulisse treibt die Playstation an ihre Grenze: Im Laser- und Plasma-Feuer verlieren selbst konzentrierte G-Cops den Durchblick, denn der Sichtbereich ist arg begrenzt. Das Pop- Up-Festival wirkt auf Technik-Pedanten abschreckend, die vortreffliche (akustisch durch Breakbeats und Funkfeuer unterstützte) Atmosphäre beschneiden plötzlich auftauchende Wolkenkratzer und Texturen-Überschneidungen aber nicht. Trotzdem ist "G-Police" ein audiovisueller Blender, denn trotz vielfältiger Aufgabenstellung bleibt Euch kaum Zeit für strategische Überlegung: Ihr startet, ballert alles ab und klickt die Hintergrund-Story ungeduldig weg, um schnell in die nächste Mission einzutauchen. 35 Levels warten - ein erfreulich umfangreiches Vergnügen!

G-Police mag kein absolutes Meisterwerk sein, gehört wegen der packenden Atmosphäre und der perfekten Spielbarkeit aber zu den Top-Titeln im Genre.

Overall, G-Police is in the upper tier of Playstation games. It offers exciting, realistic, challenging missions that will keep you glued to the control pad. All of the elements of the game, from FMV, to sound, to graphics, to story, come together nicely to create a realistic gaming experience. There certainly are rough spots, but the majority of the game is a pleasurable experience. This is definitely a game for helicopter-simulator fans or other-related-simulator fans. Every one else should still give it a test drive just for kicks.

Om du har en tillräckligt bra PC finns det nog inte något spel som visar upp maskinens fantastiska kunnande på ett bättre sätt. Du kommer att få spela i, delta i och iaktta en otäck, futuristisk värld. Vi är dock ganska tveksamma till om folk kommer att göra websiter om och tilläggsnivåer till det här spelet.

This is a tough game for me render an overall judgment. On the one hand, it is exactly the kind of action shooter I love to play, and its graphics and music are wonderful; on the other hand, controlling the helicopter was too difficult and seeing far ahead was nearly impossible. Also, I never felt the kind of absorbing addiction to the game I had been so eagerly anticipating. Perhaps its roots as a video/console game before being ported to the PC have something to do with these issues. In any case, if you really want a true challenge to your hand-eye coordination, this one's for you.

Schicker Sound ist obligatorisch, was auch für die tolle, atmosphärische Optik gilt, zumal diese (in Grenzen) an den Rechner angepaßt ist – ein Pentium II bietet also deutlich mehr. Wer „Wing Commander“ mag, wird von „G-Police“ nicht lassen wollen...

If you are a fan of air combat type games, you will probably enjoy this game. The explosions and graphics are awesome, although I found that I struggled with the aiming. I think this game could have been a little bit better if it was not constantly surrounded by a sea of darkness but I guess you have to give a little to get a little. This is a decent game that should keep you entertained for some time.

(Budget re-release) G-Police lebt in erster Linie von der stimmungsvollen Großstadt-Grafik. Die kann sich gut ein Jahr nach Erstveröffentlichung immer noch sehen lassen und läuft auf den jetzigen Highend-Systemen erst recht zu ganzer, weil flüssiger Pracht auf. Dazu gesellen sich viele spannende Aufträge und eine überdurchschnittliche Hintergrundstory. Einziger echter Minuspunkt ist die überempfindliche Steuerung.

Overall, G-Police feels quite a bit like Colony Wars, which is certainly a compliment. Missions are varied and engaging, the flight model is easy to handle, and crowd-pleasing light effects and bright explosions are on full display. It is, however, perhaps a bit too ambitious for the PS1 hardware. I never found a moment where the graphics limitations made the game unplayable, but you won’t see any breathtaking vistas (or really, much of anything) here. Also, be prepared for some serious jumps in difficulty, which might mean you won’t be seeing Jack’s story through to its conclusion.

With a flair for the dramatic, and an attention to detail that should impress even the toughest of critics, G-Police is a rock-solid example of great gameplay. Add this one to Psygnosis' list of winners.

When you get right down to it, though, the buildings and environments in G-Police are quite stunning; they look like they jumped right out of Blade Runner. However, from a technical standpoint, G-Police 2 is more like a mission disc than a true sequel, though it does deliver on what the series does best: provide a solid challenge with an involved storyline. Fans of the original will adore it, and it's recommend for newbies who crave a challenge.

If you can see past the poor visibility, G Police offers a ton of action and an engaging story line. Still, chopper jockeys looking for a pleasantly complex firefight should test-fly before they buy.

If your penchant for playing "good cop / bad cop" exists outside the bedroom doors, G Police deserves to be your next purchase. Its action-filled missions wrapped inside an unfolding story are sure to keep you under house arrest for quite some time.

Grafisch und technisch ist G-Police sicherlich eines der spektakulärsten Actionspiele des Jahres '97. Zu meinem Leidwesen versuchen die Hardwareanforderungen jedoch angestrengt, mit beidem in puncto Spektakularität zu konkurrieren.

A solid and original new title. G-Police offers the opporunity to buzz around in a futuristic city, taking on dangerous high-priority combat missions. It also provides an intriguing plotline to carry along the action. And in all, the game is visually stunning. The best, no contest. With superb polygon rendering and ludicrously exotic weaponry a la Turok, as well as the AGP possibility, this title is hot. Anyone with a 3D accelerator, a penchant for cyberpunk, or a helicopter fetish should give this one a spin. It's definitely worth the money. Fire up that force-feedback joystick, and feel the cannons rumble!

Globaal zou ik stellen dat G-Police geen hoogvlieger is. Daarvoor mist het de kwaliteiten. Maar G-Police is zeker geen komplete misser. Meeslepende actie, zeer knappe graphics en afwisselende missies zijn ingrediënten die zich zeker op het schijfje 'G-Police' bevinden. Deze eigenschappen zorgen er ook voor dat het spel vrij verslavend is. Het voornaamste minpunt echter is de moeilijkheidsgraad. Zelfs zonder de trainingsmissies te doorlopen breng je je eerste missies tot een goed einde.

It's true that G Police provides two full discs worth of gameplay, but the missions quickly seem like variations on a few basic themes, and the excitement never really builds, let alone climaxes. Fans of missions-based action games are probably better served looking up Sony's MechWarrior 2/Virtual On! hybrid, Armored Core, or Psygnosis' own space shooter, Colony Wars, both of which are much faster moving and a lot more fun.

All things considered, G Police puts too much emphasis on the graphics. The gameplay is there, but you can't get to it. If you're sportin' an ultrafast PC with a 3D accelerator card, G Police is a worthy buy, if only for the visuals. If you have anything less, save yourself the frustration.
