A relatively fresh idea in an industry full of sequels, franchises and uninspired spin-off products, Law and Order: Dead on the Money pits players as a detective in a virtual world where they must solve puzzles, uncover clues and undergo courtroom scenes to nail America’s lawbreakers.

When a hotshot New York City investment broker, Jenny Russ, is found strangled in the middle of Central Park, police detective Lennie Briscoe is assigned the task of nailing the murderer, along with the help of the Assistant District Attorney.

This is where you come in. Playing as either Lennie or the Assistant DA, you’ll be caught up in an enthralling mix of action, both in the field and in the courtroom as you try to solve this tragic case. As Lennie, you’ll be responsible for investigating. Gathering clues and evidence will be essential to the upcoming trial so you must leave no stone unturned and be sure to speak anyone you can. Listen very, very carefully to what they have to say.

When the courtroom drama begins, you’ll assume control of the Assistant DA, where you’ll have to make informed decisions. Listening is very much the key in Law and Order. Players should take everything on board before progressing further into the game.

Very much an interactive drama show, Law and Order at least offers some fresh ideas to gaming. It’s a difficult game, but one so engrossing that you’ll be driven to play it until you uncover the hard truth.
