Description

COPS 2170 is a tactical strategy game of squad combat with RPG elements set in a futuristic cyberpunk world. It is a prequel to Paradise Cracked, an earlier game by the same company.

In the game you control Katy, a new officer fresh from the academy that aims to make a solid career in the police force. You will control her as your main character and recruit additional partners to undertake several missions, which usually involve combat across the urban sprawls of the future against several factions and gangs in the city. As the game progresses a plot starts to surface involving a deranged criminal who aims to bring the city to its knees.

You can control up to 6 characters and additional backup NPCs, each with their own stats and equipment and issue orders to them on squad-based turns. Since you are part of the police force there's no resource management and instead the equipment availability is decided by your rank, which depends on the conditions in which you complete each mission. The game uses a fully polygonal engine and features branching mission objectives and different outcomes based on your in-game actions.

Trivia

Cancelled sequel

A sequel was planned at some point, titled 4th Battalion, for which the teaser site is still online (see the related links section).

Title

The series' name has been changed from Paradise Cracked due to a change of publisher - the rights to the title remained with the previous one, while the game world (officially called Reality 4.13) and several major characters are the same.
