Inspired by SWAT 4 and gritty police TV shows, Police Stories is a fresh take on top-down shooters with an emphasis on tactics that forces you to make split second decisions. Neutralize criminals, rescue civilians and defuse bombs in Single Player mode or Online Co-op. And remember - shooting first is not an option! Unforgiving and tense, each mission tells a story of two police operatives - John Rimes and Rick Jones, filled with infiltrating gang hideouts, rescuing hostages, making arrests and other life-threatening situations. The Surrender System allows you to apprehend the suspects without resorting to violence. Fire a warning shot near them or engage them in melee combat - those are just some of the ways you can make them submit. Issue commands to your fellow cop Rick Jones. Make sure to use him wisely - and who knows, he might save your life in return. Randomly placed criminals, hostages and evidence make every level run unique. The placement changes every time you restart, leading to new interesting situations and opportunities. As a law enforcement officer, you will have access to end-of-the-line police equipment, such as under-the-door cameras, door blast charges and many others. Various types of lawbreakers, from small petty criminals to well organised gangs and terrorists. Each type has not only unique weapons, but different behaviour and shooting skill. Complex Tactical Gameplay: Try not to get spotted, don't waste bullets, regularly check your surroundings and make sure to take criminals down quietly. All your actions are scored in real time. Playing aggressively won't get you a high enough result to start the next mission - so keep that in mind! Co-op. Complete mission together for better scores and more fun!

Police Stories is more then a simple Hotline Miami copy-and-paste, and add some very interesting tactics options to the top-down shooter mechanics.

Police Stories is a top-down shooter featuring stealthy missions as you work through a case in the late '90s. There's a fun and addictive game here, if you can get past the difficulty level.

The story is forgettable because of its generic nature and the visuals aren't incredible, but Police Stories is about the tactical gameplay and having to make those split-second decisions as a police officer would. You'll have a newfound respect for your local law enforcement once you realize how life and death their jobs can be.
