Summary: I love this product. Anyone who is interested in mysteries and solving crimes, Unsolved Crimes is for you. I enjoy getting lost in the cases. Because I am paralegal, I use this as a tool to help me to practice looking at discovery, identifying the various rules at it relates to the Federal Rule of Evidence. With that said, you now know that this is an outstanding product.
It's A "Crime" That This Game Isn't More Well Known...

Summary: Do you like my crappy title pun there? Anyway, I've played a ton of point-and-click adventure games on DS, including the Phoenix Wright series, Broken Sword, Again, Jake Hunter, Hotel Dusk, Theresia, Time Hollow, Touch Detective, Trace Memory, etc. So, when I learned about this game (yet another point-and-click adventure game on DS), I just had to pick it up. It looks to be your standard detective themed adventure game, of which there are several on DS.
Summary: This is a game with much realism and practicality. Don't expect to decipher mysterious symbolic clues, play puzzle or maze games or place boiled eggs on fake bird nests to solve your cases. Those actions belong to fantasy detective games. In "Unsolved Crimes" you play a real life rookie detective in the NY Homicide Division. Before hitting the crime scene you are given a training case, "Learning the Ropes".
Summary: I love detective games and this one just bit the dust. I am sorry to say that I have to give a negative reaction to this game. Just trust me there is too much detail to go on into to tell what is wrong with the game. Just don't buy.

Summary: I bought Unsolved Crimes based on the review that said it was similar to Hotel Dusk Room 215 and Trace Memory, both of which are very fun and interesting games. I also thought it would be similar to the Nancy Drew PC game series. Unsolved Crimes is NOT like these at all. The primary complaint I have is that your "partner" leads you through everything, as if you are in a tutorial. You can't look around the crime scene on your own, or do any of your own investigating.
Summary: This is an awfful game! It does not allow for any independent thought and you have to think just the way the the developers think This is an awful game! There is no way to account for independent thought and you have to follow the game step by step their way! I am sorry that I bought this game and would not recommend it to anyone!
