  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.

    Could be a 9 but kind of short. Finished it in about 10 hours but you can replay in slightly different modes. Graphics/sound are good and storyline is fun. Interface is smooth as glass If you like detective type games pick it up. Expand

    Game features pictures of a real life murdered toddler, James Bulger. It was appalling what them scumbags did to this poor innocent child in 1993, it was even more appalling that they got released in 2001, and it's absolutely unacceptable to think that they are now getting publicity of this in this game. I note the game manufacturer has done a good thing and removed the images now, but really they should never have used them in the first place. Expand
