Description Edit | History

From publisher blurb:

COPS se propose de vous entraîner dans un proche futur, celui de la Californie des années 2030. Jeune recrue fraîchement émoulue de l'Académie de Police, fils à papa pistonné, ex-fédéral ou vétéran issu de la police ou de l'armée, c'est à vous désormais de combattre le crime sous toutes ses formes au coeur de la Cité des Anges, en intégrant les rangs de l'unité COPS - Central Organisation for Public Security, élite et vitrine d'un LAPD à bout de souffle.

Trois décennies nous séparent à peine de l'univers du jeu, mais la face du monde a diablement évolué - affrontements nucléaires, guerres civiles, famines, certains pays ont même finis "privatisés" par de puissants consortiums. La situation américaine n'est guère plus brillante de son côté, avec une montée en puissance des puritains et des conservateurs, qui n'ont de cesse de stigmatiser la "Babylone" des temps modernes - autrement dit la Californie. Lasse de servir de dépotoir et de défouloir, celle-ci décide de proclamer son indépendance en 2026, rapidement suivie d'Hawaï et du Nevada. Votre mission ? Rien de plus que de veiller à la sécurité de ce nouvel état souverain, déjà rongé par la pollution, la corruption et la surpopulation, tandis que chaque citoyen se prépare anxieusement au Big One, au séisme qui engloutira la région entière... Si l'Homme a marché sur Mars et s'il s'apprête à coloniser les fonds marins, la terre ferme n'est plus qu'une vaste plaie béante aujourd'hui.

Dans la droite lignée de Berlin XVIII, déjà produit par l'écurie Siroz, COPS vous entraînera tout droit dans le quotidien peu réjouissant du commissariat central de Downtown LA, avec son lot d'enquêtes, de vacheries administratives, de guerres des polices, de ripoux et de héros sous-payés, le tout au sein d'une unité qui a (en principe) toute autorité sur le Comté de Los Angeles - et le troisième taux de mortalité de la police. Mais si les personnages sont tous appelés à porter le même uniforme, le jeu n'en demeure pas moins varié en termes de carrières proposées : le COPS rassemble 200 flics de tous les horizons possibles, qui se doivent d'être aussi habiles au Colt Afrikaneer qu'avec un tube à essai, de manière à "Servir et Protéger" au mieux le contribuable californien.

Le système de jeu se veut quant à lui des plus fluides et fidèles à l'univers : lancez autant de d10 que le score de telle caractéristique (entre 1 et 5), le but étant d'obtenir avec chaque dé un score égal ou supérieur à votre compétence (vous l'aurez compris, plus une compétence est élevée, moins le personnage est bon), de façon à réunir entre 1 et 5 réussites selon la difficulté de l'action entreprise. L'initiative ne laisse aucune place au hasard : chaque joueur décide du moment auquel il intervient, mais plus il agit rapidement, plus il obtiendra de malus, et vice versa. Il est à noter que ce système se veut meurtrier : en dépit des protections et armures, les points de vie défilent ainsi à vitesse grand V : la police a besoin de flics prudents et raisonnables, pas de têtes brûlées qui finiront rapidement avec une médaille à titre posthume...


Translation courtesy of Google:

PSC proposes to lead you in the near future, the California of the 2030s. Freshly émoulue rookie of the Police Academy, boosted son dad, former federal or veteran from the police or the army, it's up to you now to fight crime in all its forms the heart of the City Angels, incorporating the ranks of the unit COPS - Central Organization for Public Security, an elite showcase LAPD breathless.

Three decades separate us from the penalty of the game world, but the whole world has changed terribly - nuclear confrontation, civil wars, famines, some countries have even finished "privatized" by powerful consortia. The American situation is much brighter on its side, with a rise of the Puritans and the Conservatives, who are constantly stigmatize the "Babylon" of modern times - ie California. Tired of use dump and stress relief, it decides to declare its independence in 2026, quickly followed by Hawaii and Nevada. Your mission? Nothing more than to ensure the safety of the new sovereign state, already plagued by pollution, overpopulation and corruption, while each citizen anxiously preparing the Big One, the earthquake that will engulf the entire region ... If man walked on Mars and if they are going to colonize the seabed, the land is no longer a large gaping wound today.

In the line of Berlin XVIII , already produced by the team Siroz, COPS will lead you straight into the grim daily Central Police Station in Downtown LA, with a lot of investigations, administrative nasties, wars fonts, ripoux and underpaid heroes, all within a unit which (in principle) any authority of the County of Los Angeles - and the third fatality rate of the police. But if the characters are all called to wear the same uniform, the game remains unchanged in terms of careers available: the PSC comprises 200 cops from all walks possible, which should be as adept at Colt Afrikaneer with a test tube, so as to "Serve and Protect" best California taxpayers.

The game system is intended for his most fluid and faithful to the universe: d10 launch as many as a score of such a characteristic (between 1 and 5), the goal is to get each die with a score equal to or greater your competence (you'll understand more a skill is, the less the character is good), so as to gather between 1 and 5 depending on the difficulty achievements of the action. The initiative does not leave anything to chance: each player decides when it occurs, but it is faster, it will get the penalty, and vice versa. It should be noted that this system is intended murderer despite protections and armor hitpoints parade and at high speed: the police need cops cautious and reasonable, no hotheads who will end quickly with a medal posthumously ...
