Police Quest 2: The Vengeance review

Computer Gaming World - Issue 5 (1989): "It is obvious that in this game as in its predecessor, Jim Walls' "on the job" experiences add to the element of realism and danger that are evident throughout the game. In fact, Walls confirmed in an interview with this reviewer that all of the situations in this game actually did happen to him or a friend. For example, the sequence with the diver actually occurred and the real Jessie Bains (his name was changed) did escape (and is still on the loose).
Police Quest II is basically linear in nature. In order to win, players have to accomplish one task after another. However, the designer has given us many more puzzles and pitfalls than in his earlier outing. In any case, this reviewer is convinced that Police Quest II: The Vengeance is going to be hard to beat! The advanced graphics, intriguing story, and flowing animation make this story come alive. The whole package leads us toward a new apex in interactive game fiction!."
