Press Release (15 March 2006):


    15th March 2006

    Mindscape today declared a revealing statement of intent by announcing Law & Order: Criminal Intent, the latest in the long running and celebrated series for PC on 24th March.

    Based on the critically acclaimed television series of the same name, the latest addition to the franchise faithfully recreates the intrigue of the show by giving players the chance to assume the role of Detective Robert Goren. Criminal Intent features four unique homicide investigation stories, penned by the Law & Order writers with actors Vincent D’Onofrio and Jamey Sheridan, who both lend their voices to their respective in-game characters.

    As Goren, players will have to mix traditional forensic techniques, such as examining crime scenes and scrutinising evidence with Goren’s instincts for interviewing witnesses by deciding which psychological approach to use when pressing for clues. With a scared old lady, a little sympathy could go a long way. However, an uncooperative suspect might require some hardball tactics with a more intimidating or deceptive line of questioning.

    Many of the sets from the TV series have been rendered in sharp 3D to provide detailed backdrops and locations. When combined with the character likenesses, recreated with equal attention to detail, fans of the show will instantly recognise the efforts that have gone into producing the most authentic Law & Order title to date.

    Law & Order: Criminal Intent will be published by Mindscape on 24th March 2006 for PC, priced £19.99.
