Walkthrough: CSI: NY Episode 2: Just Desserts




notes:

You can skip two mini-games in each scene. There are two lights next to a Skip button on each mini-game that shows the status of skipped games. Skipping games will get you lower ratings at the end.

Click on underlined text in conversations to pursue topics. Completed topics will change colour from pink to white.

Drag items from the inventory to a person to ask questions about them.

Your Credibility depends on which questions and objects (and sometimes which part of a particular object) you choose to ask the suspect about. Your credibility decreases if you ask irrelevant questions.

You can only save in one slot you when exit the game.

This game is lucid and reasonable enough to finish without any hints if you’re an experienced adventure / puzzle / HOG gamer.
