When the last choccie biscuit mysteriously disappeared out of
the tin, Anna Sky Hulton followed the trail of crumbs and decided
to become a member of the CSI team
Crime Scene Investigation (PC) is a great addition to any CSI
fan's game collection.
Allan Collins, writer of the hit series, has written the plot
for the game which makes the cases that you cover so believable
you could almost be an episode of the programme. All the main
characters from the series make an appearance and are voiced by
the actors themselves which is another credit to the game.
game consists of five cases to be solved by you, the rookie CSI
and it is straight into the first case accompanying CSI veteran
is quite a simple game to pick up, it uses a simple 'point and
click' interface allowing gamers to 'process' crime scenes. You'll
get to dust for fingerprints, take samples of blood for later
analysis and pick up pieces of evidence that you think might be
cases that you cover throughout the game all differ and the type
of evidence you can collect ranges from pieces of glass to knee
prints. Throughout the game locations will be unlocked allowing
you to question more people and have a look around for clues.
addition there are three CSI locations included in the game, the
morgue, Capt Brass's office and the lab. At the lab, with the
help of Greg, you can search the fingerprint database, 'chat online'
and compare fibres under the microscope.
the main CSI team are in the game and on each case you will accompany
one of the team. There are only five cases in the game and therefore
the game can be a little short, of course it all depends how good
your detective skills are! Some will find it takes ages to find
the missing link to bring someone in for questioning or to open
up a new location.
you get really stuck you can always ask your fellow CSI agent
for a hint. However, hints will count against you and when Grissom
gives you your appraisal at the end of each case any hints that
you have asked for will be deducted from your overall score.
