This game is based on the show with the same name. The game plays fairly similar to the CSI games if you have ever played them. This time, you actually point and click where your person walks. This allows different viewing angles. You hardly have to move much. To answer your main question: Yes, this game is extremely easy. It's probably one of the easiest games on the Xbox 360. Every single achievement is basically story related. There is no real way to fail. If you do somehow fail on anything, you get unlimited retries. If you keep doing bad on certain things, you will get hints/clues sometimes. You can complete the entire game in one sitting. This game is much easier than the CSI games, because you don't really need to follow any guides.

Step 1: Play The 4 Cases

There are a total of 4 cases to play. As you progress, you will unlock the achievments. There is nothing you can miss. The game is well beyond holding your hand. It lets you try everything over and over again. Most of the mini games take under a minute to do and there aren't even that many. It's just playing through the game and getting the achievements. Point A to point B. You do not have to stress about anything. This is the only step, as once you are done with your playthrough, you will have completed everything.


I cannot stress how easy this game is, even without following a walkthrough. One is provided for you just in case you do find yourself stuck (some clues can be overlooked). Also a walkthrough could provide you a quicker playthrough since you know exactly what to do and not play any guessing games.
