  1. Justice is Served is, by far, the best in this illustrious series. It's excellently written, bigger in scope, longer, better looking. It gets my highest recommendation as a must-buy for any fan of the show and really any adventure gamer looking for an involving and entertaining mystery to be solved.
  2. Fans of the show should not be without this game. It's like being in one of the episodes.
  3. While it hasn’t converted me into an adventure game lover, it has made me want to play the other Law & Order games before it. To me that says the developers have done something right.

    This review was originally written before Jerry Orbach passed away. As a longtime fan of the series, I would like to add that he made the show truly great. He will be sorely missed.

    The puzzles all have a reason for being there that is directly related to the story, which is definitely a major plus.
  6. A fun, yet brief detective adventure that will occupy several evenings of play, but like a watched episode of the show, will probably never be picked up again after completion.
  7. Fundamentally this game just probably wasn’t a plausible idea, and I don’t think that anyone beyond a Law & Order watching point-and-click enthusiast who happens to be entranced by the mystery of a good storyline will become that excited about this game.
