    Fascinating stories, great twists, good graphics, superior voice acting, decent gameplay and the desire to now become a CSI once again is what we are left with. And that is good enough.
  2. The characters are interesting, the stories are a good mix and ran smoothly, and wound up satisfactorily.
  3. Initially the control scheme seems overly complicated; extended play reveals it’s anything but, with the game often verging on the easy side.

    3DoM might not cross over adequately enough to entertain adventure game fans accustomed to epic story lines, but then again, it just might--it certainly comes closer than any of the previous CSI or even Law and Order games. [Jun 2006, p.104]
  5. All I can say is, every time I see a stain on my clothes or a mysterious splotch of paint on the wall, I have a strong urge to swab it.

    Though it may be powered by DirectX 8.1, this game does not disappoint. Everything is rendered in 3D, and has good reflection effects. The Though it may be powered by DirectX 8.1, this game does not disappoint. Everything is rendered in 3D, and has good reflection effects. The face animations are what take a point off. There are not many facial "muscles" so very little of the face reacts to the lip-synch, which is far-off. Overall, this is sure to give any fan of the show a taste of what it would be like to work the graveyard shift in the Las Vegas Crime Lab. Full Review »

    With only 5 new crimes to investigate, I thought I would breeze through this game. But there is so much to do and the crimes and the With only 5 new crimes to investigate, I thought I would breeze through this game. But there is so much to do and the crimes and the investigating are so involving that I've barely solved 3 so far after many hours of playing. And every hour has been captivating. I highly recommend this game to anyone looking for something a little different. Full Review »

I have loved every tv show and spin off and the games are a terrific addition to the overall series. As a real life police officer with friends on a local CSI team, I can tell you that this game is not that far fetched! The crimes may seem outlandish to the untrained eye, but believe me, this is the real deal! Not or the faint of heart but certainly for the adventurous thinker. Full Review »
