    "In the midst of all the new release dates, a totally new Hudson DS game almost eluded our attention. We had no idea what Miami Law was when it showed up on Nintendo's press release. Hudson just sent the first screens and info about the DS action-adventure game, which distinguishes itself from Atlus's Tokyo Beat Down through multiple styles of play.

    Miami Law, according to the press release, is 'packed with all of the ingredients of a prime-time TV show,' following FBI agent Sara Starling and Miami cop Law Martin (LAW MARTIN: MIAMI LAW has a pretty nice ring to it) on two separate adventures. Sara's game is a mostly investigation-based adventure game, as she searches crime scenes and solves puzzles; Law's half of the game is all car chasing and shooting segments. Miami Law also includes unlockable Texas hold 'em and sudoku games for 'when the tension gets thick.'

    We don't believe we've seen this game before -- while it looks like a rebranded Japanese game, we don't recognize it from anything we've come across, from Hudson or anyone else. Miami Law hits the streets in June."

    Yeah, caught sight of this, too, yesterday, and it looks pretty cool. At first I thought it was going to be another point-and-click adventure, but then read the description. I doubt it will end up being anything that sells too well or makes much splash among reviews, but I'm always up for a bit more B-movie-type action.

    great news [​IMG] found more info Source

    "As hot-headed detective Law Martin and analytical partner Sara Starling, you'll keep the peace in Miami with gunplay and some detective work, both represented with really disparate mini-games

    The shooting is clearly the focus and it works pretty well. As enemies pop up on the screen you tap them to shoot, pressing down on the d-pad reloads and the "L" button takes cover. If there's a problem, it's that our meaty hands often blocked our view of the enemies.

    When the action switches to Starling, things are a bit more cerebral. In one game, we had to match two different molecular structures by shape and color. In another, we had to manipulate a crate to find a clue hidden somewhere within. It's hard to create puzzle gameplay that doesn't feel like something we've played something 100 times before, but Miami Law manages it.

    The game's real strength seems to be in its variety. Don't like the gunplay? Go do a puzzle. Not digging the puzzle? Go play sudoku. Or poker. It's all in there"

    it seems like theres going to be a lot of variety with this title, could be one to keep a closer eye on in the coming months
