Police Quest Collection (1987)


About This Game

Walk the thin blue line in four of the most realistic crime games ever created, packed with complex storylines and real-life mysteries that only a handful of real police officers ever face – or solve. You don’t just watch the action – you’re in the thick of it.

Be warned: make one mistake and the criminals will be back out on the streets.

Police Quest are a series of police simulation video games produced and published by Sierra On-Line between 1987 and 1998. The first five were adventure simulation games, the first three of which were designed by former police officer Jim Walls. The fourth and later titles were designed by former LAPD Chief Daryl F. Gates. Both SWAT and the real-time strategy game SWAT 2 still carried the Police Quest name and were numbered V and VI in the series, respectively, although subsequent titles in the series would drop the Police Quest title altogether.


  • The pack includes Police Quest: In Pursuit of the Death Angel (VGA and EGA, 1991), Police Quest 2: The Vengeance, Police Quest 3: The Kindred, and Police Quest: Open Season.
  • Get familiar with the ins and outs of performing a Police investigation.
  • Risk not only your life, but also that of your partner.

Collections and re-releases

Sierra’s first re-release of the games in a collection was in 1995 as Daryl F. Gates’ Police Quest Collection: The Four Most Wanted. The package was released under the Daryl F. Gates’ Police Quest series title, to cash in on the then newly released Daryl F. Gates’ Police Quest: SWAT. Extras included behind the scenes history with the game creators, an abridged copy of the L.A. department police manual, and a video interview with Daryl F. Gates.

The second re-release collection was released in 1997 as Police Quest Collection Series. It contained Police Quest 1–3, Open Season, and SWAT. It also included the Daryl Gates interview and the documentation from the previous collection.

The two Police Quest: SWAT games were re-released in 1999 in a collection called Police Quest: SWAT Force.
