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 the chief of police or a witness, and heads to the scene of the murder with their partner. Alternatively, the player and their partner head to a location, 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 56 cases in Grimsborough, 59 in Pacific Bay (not counting Welcome to Pacific Bay), 56 in the World Edition (not counting The Murder of Amanda Love), 60 in Mysteries of the Past (not counting The Murder of Mrs Stanbury) and 60 in The Conspiracy (not counting The Dead and the Beautiful), 31 in Travel in Time. There are 30 more cases planned for Supernatural Investigations, with twenty of them currently being playable.
