Hints and Tips
Weapons – There are a lot of nasty folk out there, best to always have a weapon to hand just in case, never know when someone might jump out at you!
Walk the grid! - If you want to get all of the achievements such as finding all the birds/metal pieces and using all the weapons then you need to be pretty thorough and explore all areas. Like any forensic investigator you'll want to check everywhere around you including up high and down low. Remember the crime scenes are 3D - Walls, floors and roofs. Note that you can also move some objects.
Use the Taser - The taser is a pretty great way of disarming the bad guys so use it to your advantage to steal their weapons or to get in a few good hits before they recover. For some enemies the taser will be enough to finish them off.
Use the torch - Seems like common sense but for most of the game the torch is going to always be on. Not sure if switching it off will stop enemies from spotting you but either way it is a key piece of kit so use it.
Forensic tools - Most of the forensic tools are easy to use, you are shown how to use each one to begin with so just remember how they work and what each one is designed to identify or capture. At the bottom right a message will appear telling you to press X whenever you need to use your forensic tools.
Block – With all melee weapons you can block attacks from the enemy, it is very useful as it stops them taking away your life and also allows you to quickly counter attack. You need to get your timing right but this shouldn't be too hard to get used to.
Birds & Metal Pieces – If you are looking to collect all of these then your going to have to be quite thorough when searching levels. Most metal pieces are found near walls with eyes on them so that should help a bit. As for the birds listen out for the alive ones – you should be able to hear them. Also some of the others have flies around them which you can also hear when you are close.
Some Skills and Tricks
Start writing novels on your computer. Its best to write novels as they take the least amount of time. When you write, your skill will automatically advance and if your skill is high enough, you will be able to write more novel types/genres. The most money can be made from "Romance Novels". You will get royalties for six weeks once you finish a book. With the "Writing" skill maxed out, you can make approximately 40,000 Simoleons every week, which is more than the 34,800 Simoleons you can get by purchasing all neighborhood businesses, and takes less time to achieve. In three game weeks you should have a very high speed of writing, 9 or 10 best selling novels and 100,000 Simoleons.
No matter how many times you use an object, if you sell it on the same day that you obtained it you can get all your money back. If your Sim is poor and needs body points or something else, buy a body machine and keep selling it back to get a refund of all your money.
EASY COOKING, FISHING AND GARDENING SKILLS:
This trick requires a TV with a Cooking, Fishing, or Gardening channel and a video game system. Have a Sim sit down and watch television. Switch the TV over to one of the previously mentioned channels so that the Sim can start earning his or her skill points. Then, have a second Sim go over and start playing video games. Notice that although the TV is displaying video games, the first Sim still has the skill meter above their head. Allow this Sim to sit there for as long as they please until they decide to do another activity of their own. After that, the skill meter should stay above their head until you start another Cooking, Fishing, or Gardening skill activity. As an added bonus, you can train two skill points at once. For example, work out and both the Athletic and Cooking skills will continue to rise. If you keep repeating the steps until each skill channel has been viewed, the Sim will keep learning the three skills as he or she goes about their daily business, and four when doing skill activities.
