I never had any problems with the DVD version of the Complete Edition running on my PC. Essentially you start as a patrol officer and then you change desks (e.g from patrol to homicide to traffic etc) and you need to find clues in each scene. The tricky part is when you interrogate suspects you need to successfully guess whether they are lying, telling the truth or you have a doubt on what they are saying based on their facial expressions, eye contact and so on. If you guess their answers wrong it could mean a suspect released and you failing. Here are a couple of walkthroughs I found, one has videos included as well:

I finished the game a month ago more or less on Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

Thanks for the walkthrough links, Butcher!

I got my game installed and started. All seems good so far, but I haven't played yet. I wanted to come back and report to you guys about some of the options.

First of all, once the download finished, the initial setup was quick. It did want a small update to their "Social Club," which I guess gives perks, achievements, and a chance to share and get hints in game. I signed up.

Here are some of the options that I like:

-Subtitles
-Customizable Keyboard/Mouse controls or Game Controller
-Black and White graphics--Off or On
-Camera Automation and Shake--Off or On
-ACTION SKIP--Off or On: if you fail too many times, the action/shooting type sequences can be skipped.
-CLUE HINTS--Off, On (tinkling sound when a clue is nearby), or Visual (magnifying glass appears when a clue is nearby)
-AIM ASSIST--Off, Low, or High

Those last three could prove very helpful!

Hi everyone, and thanx for the commentary.

I'll try the game at some point, I bought it after all, but after reading of the difficulties many of us here seem to have had, I think I'll go back to trying to coax some of my older games to run on Windows 7.

Another thing that put me off this game is upon a closer reading of the game manual, I found that something like 35 different keys are used to perform various actions in the game. I can deal with the WASD movement, but all the rest is too much.

Eventually I will try it out, but I expect I will be killed in the first action scene while I am searching for the right key to hit to fire my own weapon.

Thanks Lan, I love the Skip Action option. I can often do the action stuff, but it's nice to know you don't have to.

Antoinetta, a list of all the keys can be offputting sometimes, but I've found that often it's not as overwhelming as it seems once you are actually playing. luck
