The gameplay involves lots of management and decision making which will impact the course of the story in the game. as a player, you will be managing other personnel, respond to emergencies, and investigate crimes in the city.
But being a good cop does not pay so you would have to become a bad cop sometimes you can make your staff do your dirty underground work, negotiate with the mafia to earn sweet money by ignoring crimes and letting their gang member run free. but as mentioned your decision will make or break Boyd’s future.
As you progress into the game police officers in the department will be taking political sides you will not be able to know their political view unless you send a spy among them. a team of officers with different political views can cause failure of investigation and in some severe case can even cause death.
The ultimate goal of the game is to earn the goal money but if you want to reach the goal you have to maintain balance on being a good cop and a bad cop.
This Is The Police will be coming to Nintendo Switch on 24 October 2017 digitally but if you want to get the physical copy of the game you would have to wait till 5 December 2017. for more information, you can visit the official website or the steam store.
