Critic Reviews for Rebel Cops
Rebel Cops is a solid tactical game with a somewhat cliche storyline. While some of the mechanics are a little half-baked, the progression system and combat are engaging and tense. The game forces you to really think through your actions thanks to the limited save system, I just wish there was more impact to playing it loud.
Rebel Cops offers several interesting ideas, in particular in how to approach the various situations, but the implementation of these is rarely on point. There are too many ups and downs in a game with a rather limited scope, without any degree of replayability and plagued by many problems. The inspired setting, although full of clichés, the excellent art direction and an engaging soundtrack can't counterbalance the many issues of this spin-off of This is the Police.

Rebel Cops sits on a spot for tactical action games that award (or punish...) their players with a grueling difficulty level and incentives to follow different approaches. If this will delight fans of the genre, those less versed on tactical action will be irredeemably cast aside, as the experience of Rebel Cops will not be their friend, and it's not like the game features a rich and plentiful plot to make up for that.

Rebel Cops only takes the tactical part of the last This is the Police. But by the way, it does not erase its defects and removes all the narrative part that could lighten it. We end up with a game that lacks dynamism, with recurring mechanics and a feeling of growing frustration.

Despite the bumpy setting and plot, Rebel Cops is a great game to take on the go for a little bit of tactical action. It stands up with stalwarts of the genre, and offers enough challenge and replayability to make you come back for more. Where the game falters is in its UI and quality of life options, but some instances of small text and slightly finicky menus do not take away from what is a solid turn-based tactics game.
All in all, Rebel Cops is a blast to play, and feels like a great modification to the This Is The Police formula. Everything feels right, the management is fun and challenging, the story is interesting enough, and there are no bugs or glitches that I have run into thus far.
