Telltale Games episodic point and click adventure series, Law and Order: Legacies came to a close with last week’s release of episode seven: “Resolution." The game, which features fan-favorite cast members from various eras of both Law and Order and SVU follows the show’s format of splitting the roughly hour’s worth of gameplay in each episode between crime solving and courtroom action, with lots of Dick Wolf-esque cut scenes.
In keeping with the show's based-on-real-events formula the “epic conclusion” opens with a businessman pushed to his death off of a New York bridge during an Occupy Wall Street protest. There’s a suicide note, lots of red herrings, and the finale ties the previous episodes together.
The first instalment was included with the initial purchase price of $2.99 with subsequent chapters available through in-app purchases of $2.99 each. Now to celebrate the conclusion the first episode is available as a free app download and the complete set of six additional chapters is available for a one-time $12.99 IAP.
If one's been playing they won’t want to miss how it all wraps up, and if one is a fan of the TV shows but unfamiliar with the game, this is the best and most affordable time to jump into the crime solving drama. And, we'll all have to wait and see if the franchise is popular enough to warrant a season two.
