The game is mostly like previous entries in the series. As a defense attorney, the player finds evidence in the investigation scenes to use to discover contradictions in witnesses' testimonies. A few mechanics from earlier entries like the Mood Matrix and the expanded investigations return. The main additions are the seances in Khura'in which have the player examine the victim's last moments to find contradictions.
