Item Description

Dive into a deep story of corruption, crime and intrigue. Take the role of gritty Police Chief Jack Boyd, and come face to face with the ugly underbelly of Freeburg, a city spiraling the drain. Will Jack reach his retirement with a nice stack of bills, or will he end up broken ... or worse?

Manage your staff, respond to emergencies, and investigate crimes in a city on the brink of chaos. The mafia underworld maneuvers behind the scenes, sinking their claws ever deeper into the city, even as the mayor is ready to exploit every situation to his political advantage.

Choose your approach to each situation as it unfolds. Sometimes you’ll be responding to a developing crisis at a crime scene, or negotiating with Freeburg’s crime bosses. Sometimes you’ll find yourself dodging questions in the press room, or even the occasional cross-examination in the witness box. Can you keep this pressure cooker from exploding, at least for long enough to stash away a nice retirement nest egg?

Depressing yet stylish
This is not an easy game as it forces you to make really tough decisions -- you are caught between your own wish to retire with some money laundered away, a corrupt city hall, lazy cops and detectives, the mafia, corrupt business -- and on top of that the daily problem of murders and other crimes in a busy city. You literally cannot please everyone, but that's where the challenge comes in.

Basically all the gameplay is looking at the map as crime reports come in, and deciding where to send cops to, and how many there are. There will be some pop-ups allowing you to choose how to respond to certain crimes, and false reports, and you're constantly fighting to keep things running.

It's not a game for everyone but if you can handle a strategy game that tends to get very depressing, this is a perfect title for you.

No title
Very cool little game at a great price.

Be warned, there is plenty of micro management, so if that's your thing, this is for you.
