is Served is the third installment of Law & Order,
a point and click investigative adventure game based
on the popular TV series. Fans of the show should
not be without this game. It's like being in one of
the episodes. Do you have what it takes to match wits
with the criminal mind?
the theme music (which Cole and Von both hate) to
the voiceovers (many of which are supplied by the
real actors), Justice is Served manages to convey
a realistic Law & Order vibe. With Lenny Brisco
as your partner you will help solve a murder and bring
the perpetrator(s) to justice. Through the use of
forensics, interviews, clues and your own personal
intuition you will try to narrow the list of suspects.
Then all of this information must be processed to
build a case for the prosecution when the accused
is brought to trial. You don't have to be a detective
or a lawyer to play this game, you will get help on
virtually every aspect of the investigation and the
trial, if you want it.
Justice is Served only presents one case, it's well
detailed and well written. As a bonus, you will also
receive a copy of the first Law & Order game,
Dead on the Money. We reviewed that one and it also
gets high marks, making this a package that you shouldn't
miss. Even if you're not a fan of the point and click
adventure genre, Law & Order might just make a
believer out of you. I can't think of a better way
to present this game. If you're looking for an intelligent
game steeped in realism then look no further.

are some really interesting elements to this game.
There are clues that come in the form of puzzles that
warrant the use of your imagination. If you aren't
familiar with the show or you have no real knowledge
of crime solving or law enforcement techniques the
game will be a great education for you. It's not difficult
but it won't hold your hand unless you really want
will instantly recognize the characters in this game
from the show. While some of the animation makes them
look like jerky marionettes, the graphics for the
most part are realistic. The interface is easy to
use; it's logical and intuitive. It's short but it's
great. The bonus game gives this package some replay
value, as long as you haven't played it before because
nothing has been updated.
& Order: Justice is Served is one of the best
TV-adapted games available and shouldn't be overlooked.
Sometimes there is more to life than giant alien robots
