Summary

Good private investigator game.

The Good

I first saw this game at sams club I believe in 1995, basically they sold these packages with 30 games for like 30 bucks, real bargain. I tried Blue Force and it looked like an interesting game, reminded me of police quest slightly. I thought the graphics were very good for it's time, the game felt like real people opposed to Sierra and Lucas Arts having more cartoony games. All characters were digitally scanned. I thought the story was interesting as Jake did the job his father had done his whole life busting criminals and getting punks off the street. I liked the environments and thought the music was catchy though some may disagree.

The Bad

I had the CD-Version, it had some better music but I was hoping it would have speech in the game unfortunately for some reason they didn't, possibly to cut costs. I had wished there were more areas to go in the game and that it were a bit longer, maybe allow you to arrest more people as all the criminals in the game are related in one conspiracy which I thought made somewhat of a bad storyline, I think the only guy not involved in the conspiracy is a drunk you bust.

The Bottom Line

The game revolves around you being a police officer. You are following your fathers dreams who was murdered by a criminal because he stumbled across some disk that contained confidential information that could land him in jail for a long time. You become a cop and find out pretty much everyone you busted is involved in some conspiracy to smuggle illegal arms stolen in a heist. It turns out the guy behind it is also the guy who murdered your parents. That pretty much sums up the game.
