Top Critic Average
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.
Rebel Cops is a very brutal and challenging TRPG which may feel intimidating to those new to the genre. Creating a stand-alone game based upon the Tactical aspect of This is the Police 2 was a great idea, the backbone and structure were there to build upon in order to create a new game in very little time. However, for me personally, the difficulty spiked too early into the game, resulting in more frustration than fun at times. Avid players of the developers previous two games will most likely get the most out of this title, as will those who love the Tactical RPG genre, but those who rarely play this type of game may not enjoy it’s unforgiving and realistic combat.
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 makes some fun adjustments to an already tense formula. Its conflicts are fraught and exciting, while its meta-game is excellently woven into both the storyline and moment to moment gameplay. You should definitely kick the door down.
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.
Rebel Cops is a fun, X-Com style strategy game that fans of the genre will appreciate for its tight gameplay and fun battles.

Despite its many shortcomings, the few interesting ideas that the game brings up, as well as the beautiful art direction and surprisingly good soundtrack, save Rebel Cops from mediocrity.
Rebel Cops is a good Tactical Strategy game, but it has flaws that prevent it from being a great game. The core gameplay mechanics are well-implemented but after some hours into the game, they feel boring and lack enough diversity. There is also some wrong game design decisions in terms of some difficulty elements that can make the game less attractive for some players. I can recommend this game to Tactical Strategy fans, but those who are new to this genre will probably have better options to start with.

Rebel Cops is a well-made, difficult game that could benefit from some mechanical restructuring.
This is the police this is not, as the fine narrative and attention to details are lost in the translation to this spin off. Still, a decent choice for the uninitiated of the turn-based strategy genre.
