The second part of the game was released in 2018 and overall replicates the first game both in terms of gameplay and visuals. Of course, there are more possibilities now, and a completely new turn-based tactical combat mode in 3D has been introduced, which is used in special cases. Non-lethal means of influence are available when detaining suspects, while your subordinates can die from a single gunshot wound, which adds a sense of seriousness and responsibility to the leadership role. The goal of the game remains the same – to solve narrative tasks within interactive dialogues, where the choice of response affects the continuation of the story.
In both parts of This Is the Police, players are free to recruit and dismiss personnel, participate in detective investigations and city politics, and develop the storyline according to their own worldview.
