|Reader: I've heard you have multiple ways of uncovering secrets in the game.
Will more skilled detectives be rewarded for their ability to uncover
Jeronimo Barrera: The goal of the game is to be the best
detective you can possibly be, so each case eventually ends with you
solving the case correctly and rising through the ranks of the LAPD. How
you get there is determined by the choices you make through the case,
leading you down separate paths on your way to each break in the case.
Your effectiveness at solving cases will be determined by how quickly
you can use what you find to solve a case. Scouring a crime scene for
clues is just one part of solving a case quickly.
Discovering different clues may open up different leads to new locations
or suspects, which in turn open up new options for a player to decide
how to go about solving a case. But that's only part of the challenge:
during interrogations, players must correctly analyze a suspect in order
to get the most information from them, and know which evidence to
present and when to present it to get the answers they need.
