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.
Excerpt: I bought this game when I first got my Nintendo DS a few years ago, I like watching CSI programmes on TV and a thought a investigative game for adults would be something I'd like. I was wrong. I should've known it wasn't going to be great when I paid only £3 or £4 for a used copy not long after its release in 2009. The game is for those aged 16 or over as it has murder scenes in it but there isn't anything too graphic.
Excerpt: After being a big CSI fan and DS game player, when I saw the two had combined to make CSI:Deadly Intent - The Hidden Cases, I knew I had to buy it. I expected to be more impressed with this game, but after playing it for about 3 weeks, I have been quite dissapointed with it. This game is rated for 12 and up, and that is a pretty fair rating for the game.
Pros: Minigames are great, like trying to work out who commited the murders
Summary: I find this game on of most difficult to play. Some of the tools are very difficult to handle, such as getting blood evidence. I have tried it on and off, with a light hand, and a heavy hand and I find it impossible. Unfortunately, I believe I bought this game for nothing. Even my 26 year old can't do it!
Excerpt: I am a fan of the CSI shows you get to see on television and I love anything to do with mystery and involves a person getting really stuck in. However this game is not even worth buying let alone playing. The Game Your mission on this game is to solve a crime and continue on to the next crime until you complete the game which sounds a good game to some people. You are a new detective and you play this role throughout the game.
Excerpt: I have previously played the CSI: Dark Motives game on the DS and thoroughly enjoyed it, however I was very disappointed in this one. The graphics were worse and the gameplay was very very short, not worth the money being paid for it. In the game, you play as yourself, a new recruit to the CSI team, ready to solve just a tiny 4 crimes. You go to the scene of the crime, collect evidence (which are obvious) and go back to the lab.
Pros: Its CSI !
Cons: Gameplay is short, Graphics got worse, Better games available
