Fun but (can be) frustrating! However, you can master this game!

Summary: First off, if you do not have a lot of patience, do not purchase this game. That being said, I am really enjoying this game, despite the bad controls (more on that later). The storyline is great! There are several cases and in the end they all tie together. The graphics are nice and the music isn't too overly annoying. Now, for the tools. Learning how to use the tools is frustrating.
Summary: As mentioned in several reviews the controls on this game are just too difficult. Although I got used to them, the level of accuracy needed to get to the next task drove me crazy. This made the game tedious and that word shouldn't be in the same sentence as "game".
Summary: Those who have played the various CSI games on the Nintendo DS or the Wii will be familiar with the basic operations in Crime Scene, a new game for the DS by South Peak Games. Developed by White Birds Productions, Crime Scene is a mature-themed, point and click adventure that puts you into the shoes of Matt Simmons, a rookie crime scene investigator Your first case opens with an apparent murder suicide.
Summary: I tried to play this on dsi but couldn't find a way to use the swab since the game calls for L and R buttons. I like the idea of the game and the graphics. Just wish I could get all the way through.
Summary: I finally finished Crime Scene, and I must admit that I have very mixed feelings about the experience. Though the plot was ridiculously convoluted, the story was still interesting overall. I also liked that the five chapters were linked, rather than just five independent cases, allowing players to get to know the characters better and allowing the game to build up to a dramatic final conclusion.
Summary: I love this type of a game but, using the tools are a bit frustrating. The booklet does not explain how the tools are suppose to be used if you fail after so many tries the game is over and you must start from the beginning. It took me quite a few tries to handle the use of the swab. This game is a challenge and I guess thats what it's suppose to be. I would give a 5 if they had explained or given a demo on the intro.
Summary: I just received this game today and have enjoyed the story so far, but the forensic tool controls are hard to use and extremely frustrating, with the swab being the worst tool. There is no real instruction on how to use the tools to collect the clues. Your point meter goes down after every failed tool use attempt and will end your game when it drains your point meter just because you don't know how to work the freaking tool right.
