Police Quest: SWAT Kicks in GOG's Door

13
After re-releasing Sierra's Police Quest series last month, digital distributor Good Old Games today added the first two games from the series' SWAT sim spin-offs.

Police Quest: SWAT and Police Quest: SWAT 2 are offered in a handy, DRM-free, $9.99 bundle. While the first game took an FMV-heavy, adventure game-ish approach to simulating SWAT missions, the second became more of a top-down tactical game.

Starting with SWAT 3, the series shifted to a conventional first-person shooter perspective while keeping the sim style. Fingers crossed that we'll see those next.

    I think it's time for a complete playthrough of the PQ series. I just wish the first GOG PQ collection had both versions of PQ1.

    I bought SWAT 1 and 2 on eBay a few years ago but never played them. I think I'll rebuy them on GoG for the convenience.

      I never knew there were two versions, what's the difference?

        Sierra made a few remakes of games in the early 90s. So there's versions of Police Quest, Space Quest, King's Quest, Leisure Suit Larry, and Quest for Glory that have better graphics and use a point and click interface.
