Excerpt: I hate no-win situations in point-and-click adventure games. Be they of the Game Over screen variety like those seen in Miami Law or the kinds of puzzles seen in the King's Quest games, I'm not a fan of there not being a solution to a title.
Summary: Miami Law could have been an edge-of-your-seat adventure game, a mash-up of 24 and Hotel Dusk. Unfortunately it takes too long getting to the point and is rarely fun along the way.

Excerpt: Adapted by Victor Ireland's Gaijinworks, Hudson's Miami Law provides a solid game mashup experience that is part Phoenix Wright -styled adventuring and part modern American drama-action TV show.
Conclusion: Miami Law is an action-adventure game packed with all of the ingredients of a prime-time TV show: an intricate storyline with a shadowy terrorist conspiracy, furious shoot-outs in abandoned warehouses, challenging crime-scene detective work and more.
