Excerpt: CSI: 3 Dimensions of Murder (also known as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation - 3 Dimensions of Murder) is a first-person point-and-click adventure game based on the popular CSI: Crime Scene Investigation television series. Unlike previous titles in the CSI series, this title is developed by Telltale Games rather than 369 Interactive.
Pros: A couple of interesting twists and clever inside jokes, Lots of crazy scientific evidentiary processes to mess around with.
Cons: Storylines are exceedingly predictable, Some of the CSI cast is missing, and even the ones that are there aren't all that great, Gameplay is extremely easy, Visuals are overly dark and bland-looking, PS2 controller interface is a bit clumsy
Excerpt: CSI is arguably one of the most watched television shows on the CBS network. Even if you're a big hater, you've gotta give props to a T.V series that has successfully launched two hit branch shows and is still burning up the networks even to this day with 20+ million weekly viewers. Now available on store shelves is the third installment of the series, CSI: 3 Dimensions of Murder.
Excerpt: “As G.K. Chesterson once said, the criminal is the creative artist – the detective only the critic” – Gil Grissom (3 Dimensions of Murder) You’re a rookie crime scene investigator on the first day of your new job with the Las Vegas crime laboratory. There’s no time to sit and fondle the comparison microscope, as there’s a dead body at the art gallery, and this lady met her death by means most foul.
Conclusion: 3 Dimensions of Murder definitely shows improvement over the rest of the CSI library while staying true to the formula established by those games. The small enhancements to graphics and storyline, along with the increased engine capabilities, all add up to make what is clearly the best game in the series, though still leaving plenty of room for further improvement.
Conclusion: Overall, this was a good effort by Telltale and Ubisoft. If you’re a CSI fan and your computer is up for the task; be sure to check this game out. With Telltale on board, a bright future for the CSI series should be expected.

Conclusion: CSI: 3 Dimensions of Murder certainly has its moments, but like every other CSI game to date, those moments are easy to get to, and ultimately unsatisfying because of the light amount of effort it took to get there. The CSI games have never been designed to appeal to the hardcore adventure game fan, but even casual players won't find too much about 3 Dimensions of Murder to get excited about, especially if they've played previous CSI games, as they'll know what to expect...
Pros: Five new cases to play through, A couple of interesting twists and clever inside jokes, Lots of crazy scientific evidentiary processes to mess around with.
Cons: Storylines are exceedingly predictable, Some of the CSI cast is missing, and even the ones that are there aren't all that great, Gameplay is still extremely easy, Character models are ugly.
