Summary: CSI: Deadly Intent is my third CSI game so far (I've played Dark Motives, which I don't recommend, and Unsolved, which is quite good). The funny thing is that I'm not a fan of the show since I've never seen it (nope, not one episode). I DO like crime investigation themed point-and-click adventure games though, and I really enjoyed CSI: Unsolved, so I decided to go ahead and pick up this one too. So how does it hold up? Well, let's find out!
Summary: The CSI games are fairly easy to walk through and the puzzles are solvable within a few minutes. Having said that I enjoyed this game because it was not a mind bending challenge that I needed a super computer to assist with cheat codes. Sometimes having a puzzle game that has a story line that keeps the clues coming is all the fun needed. I have purchased the other CSI games as well and look forward to new ones.
Summary: I actually loved this game. It had a nice combination of evidence gathering, interrogation and puzzles. The gameplay was nice, easy enough to pick up casually and not get frustrated and hard enough to keep your interest. The graphics were pretty basic, but were crisp and clean so I didn't mind. I enjoyed the background music as well, very atmospheric.
Summary: I'm a big fan of the CSI games (I played them on Nintendo DS and Nintendo Wii). They're usually quite challenging. However if you compare this one to any of the others, it seems much easier and is more like a time waster than a real "thinking game". It's cartoonier as well, which I didn't mind. It is actually easier to spot things, as it isn't as dark as the privious CSI game for Nintendo DS. It only has 4 cases and you don't get a bonus case after solving them all.
Summary: I just finished the game and - I have to say, the reviews of the game posted on the internet so far are spot on. The game is only just "pretty good". The puzzles are fairly easy and some of the crime scene investigation fun. Fairly good characterization too, however the graphics are a mixed bag, somewhat cartoon looking. Overall, if you've played the other CSI games this one will appeal to you although it's not as good as "Dark Motives" in both plot and graphics.
