Summary: Alright now i played CSI games before on the wii and PS3 and those were fun to play, now i recently just got Dark Motives and lets just say that the directions on how to play this game on the DS is hard and u have to find out how to play it on your own or watch a walkthrough clip on youtube to figure how things work, Like on the wii and ps3 if you go to the lab and try to scan your prints its already on the computer, the Dark motives tells you nothing about you have to...
From the Perspective of Someone Who's Never Seen the TV Show...

Summary: Okay, this is going to seem strange, but I've never seen a single episode of CSI (any version of it) but I bought this game anyway. Most of the other reviewers are clearly fans of the show, but I'm obviously not. However, I am a big fan of point and click adventure games on DS, especially the "crime scene investigation/detective" kind of stories. I've just now noticed that these CSI games exist and I figured, "why not give it a try?".
Summary: I was very excited to get this game, but not too happy with the overall product. The clues are difficult to find and I was constantly consulting the walkthrough. Also, with only 5 levels, I gave the game away after finishing it. It is pointless to keep it as the mysteries stay the same.
Summary: Maybe it was the fact that I had never seen the show, or maybe its the fact that its really boring and confusing, but either way don't buy it. I thought it was too, too complex. Most of the time I didn't know what they were asking me to do. And it gets really frustrating. But, if you are a masochist then you'll like it, I guess.
