There are always these trends in TV programming. What used to be the big zombie wave some years ago, was the police procedurals back in the 1970s. Hill Street Blues was a fairly late arrival to this genre (running through most of the 1980s) and its computer game adaption appeared even only in the 1990s. So was it beating an already dead horse? At the time, probably, but seen from 2020 perspective, the difference between 1987 (when the series ended) and 1991 is almost neglibible for sure.

Indeed, one I remembered enjoying much more than I did this time around. It happens quite often that a game's own ambition and conceptual promise imprints itself on my memory more strongly than the actual execution. It's the big risk of nostalgia ;)
