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…

quoteCSI: Crime Scene Investigation (PC) is a great addition to any CSI fan's game collection.

Max 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.

The game consists of five cases to be solved by you, the rookie CSI and it is straight into the first case accompanying CSI veteran Grissom.

CSI 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 useful.

The 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.

In 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.

All 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.

If 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.quote
