Police Quest 1: In Pursuit of the Death Angel review

The Games Machine UK (1998): "As with all Sierra's recent adventures, the parser can deal with most likely inputs, and interaction is very good. The car is tricky to control at first and the sound lets the game down slightly, but Police Quest is a large adventure with more than one solution and should keep even hardened text-only-adventure-players amused and involved for quite some time."

Collector's corner:

Police Quest was released for the IBM PC, Apple II (128K), Amiga, Atari ST, and Apple IIGS. An SCI 1.1 enhanced version in 256-color VGA was released in 1992.
