Miami Law

Defunct Games
22 September 2009
  • 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. Worst of all, once you finally solve the cases you're left having to justify enormous plot holes and lame twists. Even the game's most exciting elements are an utter snooze. Miami Law may appeal to fans of schlocky cop dramas, but I didn't find much here worth investigating.

Miami Law (DS) - Review

VGChartz
20 July 2009
  • Excerpt: As the kind folks over at Hudson have stated “Miami Law is an action-adventure game worthy of its own prime-time TV show.” Just imagine a pulse pounding handheld version of a cross between the 80’s mainstay Miami Vice and 2000’s mainstay 24. It’s got all the action TV staples you can imagine including a storyline with a shadowy terrorist conspiracy, furious shootouts in abandoned warehouses, challenging crime-scene detective work, and car chases; what more can you ask...

  • 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. Still, it makes much more sense in Miami Law: you control a team of a police detective and an FBI agent; the wrong decision can and will get you killed.

Gaming Evolution
6 July 2009
  • Conclusion: Miami Law seems like a great idea on paper, but simply wasn’t followed through all the way. The game has an interesting storyline and some nice action sequences, however due to a lackluster in-game menu construct and a lack of variety of mini-games, the title can feel unfulfilling and not worth an additional playthroughs once the game has been completed.

  • Excerpt: Using part of a review to talk about the state of other reviews probably breaks more than a couple rules in the journalism handbook, but (a) I've always liked to live a bit dangerously, and (b) I've never labelled myself a "journalist" anyhow. So, hey; if I'm totally stepping out of bounds here, then so be it.

Miami Law Review

UGO
16 June 2009
  • 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. The narrative is broken up by branching story paths and offers players the choice of puzzles and action sequences to divert from a potentially monotonous string of dialogue and investigation.
  • Pros: you still listen to Will Smith albumstext
  • Cons: you're expecting some real mysteries
