Police Quest II: The Vengeance (Sierra On-Line, 1989)

This good sequel to Police Quest has most of the annoying elements from the first game eliminated and the extensive police procedure toned down to more reasonable levels. Graphics and sound are used in the best ways possible, and there is some genuine tension in this game, as the story develops in a very logical and flowing way (unusual for a Jim Walls game). The weakest point of the game is the airplane hijacking, which seems to occur for no purpose, but some good action and mystery sequences, in addition to the unusually good plot from Jim Walls (and Sierra On-Line in general) make this a good game worth playing by fans of the original Police Quest and other adventure players alike.
