I recently found it at a thrift store. Haven't played it, yet.

I'd highly recommend it. If you played PQ1 to 3... and were disappointed in PQ4... Blue Force is essentially PQ4 without the name Sonny.

When you play it - it's easy to see how this could be Sonny (and was probably the intended PQ4...)

Played it and loved it, but I had this game before experiencing the first 3 PQ games (the only one I owned was PQ4 until I got the Collection Series copy with SWAT).

If you enjoy Sierra games - and if you liked Police Quest - I'd HIGHLY recommend Blue Force. It's the most SIERRA like game out there - that wasn't by Sierra (much more so than Kyrandia and Les Manly).

i started playing it but nuked my Windows box and never reinstalled it. For what I did play, i thought it did have that classic PQ feel to it and was well done. I almost wish it was a parser game tho, that shield control for the icons was a little hokey to me. would have been better with the icons at top ala Sierra or the bottom ala Lucasarts.

I need to remember to try this again when I get back into a DOS-day mood.

True. The controls were a bit of a pain in the rump. But that's probably because we were used to Sierra. ;) And it felt so much like a Sierra game you kept thinking that the controls were Sierra-like...

Now, with you saying that that's the most non-Sierra Sierra's like game out there, my desire to play it raises!! :o

I can not emphasize enough how much this game should have been PQ4.

I liked Blue Force a lot, even if it was, more or less, "Police Quest Lite." Probably the funniest scene is if you decide to clean your gun without removing the magazine first.
