  1. If you love the T.V. show and/or have any interest in this kind of detective game, Law & Order: Dead on the Money is a must-purchase.
  2. It's about thinking, and analyzing, and actually firing neurons to solve this case. Trust me, it's not going to take you an hour to run through this game. You're going to be at it a while.
  3. A major difference in this game is that there is no time limit. You can take as long as like to wrap up the case. This time the story is more involved and convoluted. It's not as straightforward as it seems at first.
  4. Even though I enjoyed the case more in Double or Nothing, I didn’t enjoy playing the game as much because I felt like I had done it all before.
  5. The sequel has a style and methodology that are similar to the original. However, a far more engaging storyline and a less-intensive reliance on the player's knowledge of legal procedures definitely makes Double or Nothing a better game.
  6. I enjoyed Law & Order II: Double or Nothing. It's a bit different, not too taxing, well written and presented; hard to complain really.

    While Law & Order 2: Double or Nothing captures the mood and feel of the television show almost flawlessly, deep down it comes off as a slow-paced and bland adventure; it lacks excitement, action and animation.
