One of the most hated things about Grand Theft Auto 5 is the relentless pursuit of the police. Even with a one star wanted rating, it gets annoying to get those guys off your tail. In Police Simulator: Patrol Duty, you now get to be the relentless police force and track down the bad guys and crooks in a United States police force simulator. Although you will not be chasing down criminals as notorious as your Grand Theft Auto Online character, there will still be some little infamous members of your own neighborhood you will be hunting after in Police Simulator: Patrol Duty.
Individuals on the street have unique features and characteristics, making it so you are not arresting the same person every time and have a diverse profile. For the most part, the graphics of the game are smooth and nothing to scoff at, although a lot of people will not be typically impressed by them, as there is obviously better available, but it serves its purpose in the game.
Each session of gameplay is broken into shifts for the cop the player chooses to play as for the day. At the beginning of their shift, the player/cop character chooses an assignment type and missions to do for the day. The assignments usually are a choice between writing tickets to parked cars, looking for crim suspects based upon descriptions given by the police force, or speed trapping drunk drivers.
Luckily for the cop, but unluckily for the player and their interest in the high intensity cop lifestyle, the crooks in Police Simulator: Patrol Duty give in pretty easily, making it for a light day on the job, but every day. Just by talking to a suspect and telling them they have done something wrong they are practically already arrested. If, for some reason, the criminal gets a little out of hand and you have to ask twice if they did something wrong, the cop does have an arsenal of weapons at their disposal to use against the criminals to aid in their arresting endeavors.
Cops also have an action menu in which they can talk to other officers and possibly request for help in a situation, use their phone, and interact with their map to find new criminals. When on the speed trap assignment, they can even administer a breathalyzer test to their suspect.
I give Police Simulator: Patrol Duty a good 6/10. It would be much better if the interactions were not so easy and the jobs were a little more diverse. When doing the speed trap assignments, players do not even get to use the radar gun and instead must wait on another cop before they can go write a ticket to the speedy driver. A little more freedom to be a bit of a bad cop would be interesting as well, but the game is still not bad for what it is, so I keep it in the positive ratings.
