This Is the Police 2 Trailer

A new trailer offers the first look at gameplay from This Is the Police 2 in a clip titled "A Tooth for a Tooth." The clip shows off the game's new turn-based combat system, which they describe like so:

Back in the big city, Police Chief Jack Boyd, the protagonist of This Is the Police, was too deeply mired in bureaucracy to pay much attention to field tactics. But in Sharpwood, a cold frontier town where a young woman named Lilly Reed has recently become sheriff, you'll need to take a new approach: you'll have to take your cops under direct control during particularly difficult and dangerous missions.

In such situations, the game will switch to a new turn-based combat mode system. Gather a team of your finest police officers (or use your drunk and stupid bums - you don't always have the luxury of being choosy!). Take up advantageous positions and don't forget: the police are supposed to arrest suspects, not kill them. You'll have to carefully study the terrain, constantly adapt your plans, stealthily approach your suspects and use non-lethal weapons and equipment. Unless, of course, you bartered them for a dozen cans of tuna. Sometimes gunfights are almost impossible to avoid, but be careful: This Is the Police 2 doesn't have hit points. A single bullet can cost a cop their life.

Your 'fuck da police' attitude is hilarious. If they announced they were pulling out of your neighborhood you would be shitting your pants and rightly so. These people are all that stands between us and the wolves.

Really? How strange. Plenty of people all over the world live without having police around and they get on just fine. In fact, in most places, police forces are the worst corrupt criminal gangs there are. People are much more afraid of cops than criminals. All cops do is show up after the fact to take notes. The crime clearance rate for cops in NA is less than 30%. That means 8 out of 10 people get away with their crimes. So what the fuck good are they? Give people weapons and the authority to use them and what do you need cops for? And ultimately it says a lot about what a typically paranoid right-wing loon you are if you actually believe for one second that civilization would descend into some lawless dystopia without cops around. You clearly need psychological help more than you need the police.

I think you’ve been playing too many fantasy games. What world do YOU live in? lol

Well yeah but this is not a fantasy game. If they try to make a realisitc police simulator then everyone who's not on the side of the police is fuuuucked, son.

It's not fantasy but it is fictional.... and I'd guess a studio from Belarus won't know anything about the intricate level of fucked-up-ness that is the US police and sherif system.

"Plenty of people all over the world live without having police around and they get on just fine."

Need stats to back that claim up. Please provide links.

"in most places, police forces are the worst corrupt criminal gangs there are."

Need stats to back that up. Please provide links (this one should be easy, do not include Mexico, I know of several examples, too, just want you to prove your claim).

"All cops do is show up after the fact to take notes."

TIL there is no such thing as a stakeout.

"Give people weapons and the authority to use them and what do you need cops for?"

I would love this to happen but guns are bad according to all the left-wing loons. Old West had it right, some innocents might hang, but over all, the right people will swing if it is up to a town's citizens to police one another.

"if you actually believe for one second that civilization would descend into some lawless dystopia without cops around."

Need multiple examples of a country with no police force that is a utopia.

Let's keep the conversation to the facts, too.

Except too often they act like the wolves.
I love the police, but it takes a special kind of dunce to not acknowledge that they have very serious protocol issues right now. Every week we hear about a shooting that should not have happened.

We've stopped holding them to a higher standard than others, and that's incredibly bad.

Ahh, so this is a fantasy game.

Partly, apparently you still have to deal with alcoholism in the ranks of the police. Racism will be introduced as a DLC

When I read that I figured the game design was assuming protocol attitudes that are now several decades out of date.

Including the game title. The police don't say, "This is the police" anymore. Haven't for decades.
