Cases (sometimes also referred to as "Episodes") are the mission structures of Criminal Case.
In Criminal Case, every time a murder occurs, a murder case must be filed in the police force database.
A case, or an episode, always begins with a short cutscene. In this cutscene, the player finds out about a murder from a member of a law enforcement agency or a witness, and heads to the scene of the murder with their partner. Alternatively, the player and their partner head to a location based on a lead or occurrence, only to find out that a murder has happened there. Either way, the detectives find clues in the murder location, leading to them searching other crime scenes, finding more clues, interrogating different suspects, and carefully analyzing evidence to finally incriminate the killer. In rare cases, the first crime scene searched does not contain the victim's body but the investigation eventually leads to them discovering the murder and/or the body.
Criminal Case features three hundred and sixty nine cases throughout the entire game, with 362 of them currently playable. There are 56 cases in Grimsborough, 59 in Pacific Bay, 56 in the World Edition, 60 in Mysteries of the Past, 60 in The Conspiracy, 31 in Travel in Time, 30 in Supernatural Investigations, and 17 more cases in City of Romance, with ten of them currently being playable.
