A Successful Conviction Is Up To You!

The follow-up to last year's best-selling mystery adventure game Law & Order: Dead on the Money, Law & Order 2: Double or Nothing introduces an all-new story and challenges you to be both Criminal Investigator and District Attorney as you bring a killer to justice! A successful conviction is up to you!

A renowned scientist working on a top-secret project is found shot to death in his car and you need to track down the killer. Who killed Dr. Ramos? His bitter wife or jealous mistress? What about his domineering boss? Or could it have been that ambitious co-worker who uncovered his controversial research? Step into the world of Law & Order to catch and convict the killer.

Partner with Detective Lennie Briscoe as you scour the crime scene for clues, follow leads, and interrogate suspects. Arrest the murderer before time runs out and Lt. Van Buren takes you off the case. Once you've got the killer in custody, you'll team up with Assistant D.A. Serena Southerlyn to present a compelling case that will convince the jury to return a guilty verdict.

When the defense attorney undermines your case, it's up to you to track down last-minute evidence and make deals with reluctant witnesses to reveal the truth.

Reviews:

Four Fat Chicks by Old Rooster

"It's deja vu, all over again. There is no greater fan of the Law & Order series, its two spin-offs, and these wonderful games than this Old Rooster. Indeed, I even wondered if another team member should have done this review, in that my bias is so positive going in. So I'll try my best to be objective and even critical, if called for; but be forewarned, I believe this second effort from Legacy is even better than the first and goes right to my special shelf of favorite games!"

"I warned you there was some change to more adult language. This may bother a few. However, all other changes in the game, although subtle, are very positive. I find nothing to get "pissed off" about. Indeed, the story/plot is even more intriguing and complex; the game seems larger, with more locations to visit; the script is more "mature;" the save/load time is faster; redoing interviews is now an option; the graphics are improved, as evidenced by the required 16 MB 3D card, compared to 8 MB for Dead on the Money; and the dreaded time clock has been removed."

"With music and actors from the show creating a realistic crime solving and prosecuting atmosphere, coupled with a tight and satisfying script, involving and smooth gameplay, and a very effective interface, I am pleased to award Double or Nothing a Gold Star. What nits there are to pick are minor (graphics some may call dated, sometimes difficult searching, the static screen approach, relative linearity) and do not detract from an excellent production. Legacy Interactive is to be praised for listening and responding to the few criticisms of Dead on the Money and creating for us one of the very best police procedural adventure games. Let's hope these productions become an annual event. 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."

Quandary Review by Steve Ramsey

"I confess I am not a watcher of the TV series... All you should really take from this is the fact that what follows is not coloured by a devotion to the show or its characters, nor do I suffer from over-exposure."

"Double or Nothing took about 8-10 hours. I received 95% for my detective skills and 100% for my trial skills. I have no idea where the extra 5% went. It ran without incident, save for a single lock-up and one corrupted save file. There is a lot of blank screen time though as each screen loads - short each time but lots overall. It comes on 2 CDs, but once installed you only need the second."

"I enjoyed Law & Order II: Double or Nothing. It's a bit different, not too taxing, well written and presented; hard to complain really."
