  1. The deliberate pacing and educational value of simulating forensic investigations makes for a great adventure-style gameplay.
  2. Crime Scene DS does a great job immersing you in the world of forensics. Though the replay value is dubious, it doesn't really matter. The game is long enough and fun enough it could be worth it, even if you only play it once.
  3. Crime Scene is an interesting game undermined by frequent bouts of poor interactivity.
  4. Nintendo Power
    Yes, it sounds like Phoenix Wright in that respect, but Crime Scene has none of the charm, character, or creativity of Capcom's courtroom series. [Apr 2010, p.89]
  5. Between the broken controls, the annoying protagonist and godawful soundtrack, Crime Scene is best left, to use police terms, in the dusty backroom of unsolved cases.
  6. While it's true that this specific genre, namely the mature, police adventure genre is underrepresented on the DS there are plenty of other more worthwhile adventure games that focus on investigating crimes such as the excellent Hotel Dusk: Room 215 or the long standing Phoenix Wright series.

    There is just too little done right throughout its 5-8 hours of play time (or much longer if you don't save regularly or have to replay minigames excessively) to recommend to anyone.
