Jeff Cork (Game Informer) found himself bored of it halfway through. Caitlin Cooke said that after the first 20 in-game days, she “felt dragged along with little direction or thought”. Brent Ables (Kill Screen) mentioned that by day 100, he started to lose sight of the game's goal. Kate Gray said the game became dull and boring after the first couple of hours of playing. Juan Garcia disliked how the game was too focused on the narrative and how that impacted the rest of the experience. Edward Smith of the International Business Times said that “This Is The Police is simultaneously a rich video game and a poor depiction of its subject matter”. He noted how due to the various controversies surrounding police in the United States that happened around the release date, he believed the game was bound to be criticized.
