    SunOB's This is the Police (PC)

    [March 29, 2018 06:43:11 PM]
    GL 3.3
    I played another hour and a half of This is the Police. It seems to be falling into the same issue as Papers Please and Prison Architect where it opened with a lot of interesting events, but the middle part of the game is mostly filler and repetitive. At first there were a lot of interesting events going on and I had to make a lot of important meta decisions. For the entire hour I only got one "cut scene" which was definitely not enough to hold my attention. I still love the way that music is incorporated, but the core gameplay loop is too snowball-y and easy. During my first session I felt like I was in a negative feedback loop where I didn't have enough officers to fix all the problems in the city and please the mayor so he was reducing my budget. Now I have a few veterans which are almost maxed out and I am riding off of the positive feedback loop where I can train any incompetent workers (even the guy who started at 5 reliability) by sending them on as many missions possible with my max reliability veterans. I am not as interested in the grindy gameplay, I want more complicated situations and important meta choices like choosing who I side with or the decision to hire the 5 reliability officer to gain a budget increase. At this point I am able to solve every single issue that pops up and even when I lose a lot of officers (I lost 3 in one mission), I can always just replace and retrain them since I have so many available.

    I played a few more hours of This is the Police. I thought I was doing pretty bad with the city, but it seemed that there were a lot less events this session and I also got a lucky request that gave me 3 extra officers. So far there does not seem to be many issues with helping out the Mafia, besides getting one person to quit I have not experienced any issues from sending all my cops to help their missions and I have gotten less requests to ignore missions. I like the moral decisions that the player has to make to resolve situations, but they should probably be timed as it is too easy to find the correct one. I have only lost two officers so far to failed cases and the rest of my officers are now extremely experienced and most can complete missions with half the required manpower. There also seems to be a slowdown in the number of events I have been getting, the first few days were jam packed but I played a few in game weeks and the only event I got was a short phone call about the characters missing wife. The only thing holding me back right now is my lack of investigators, but the few that I do have are extremely reliable so it is not too much of an issue.
