    The Mobile Analysis Unit is here! This alone makes this a cut above previous CSI games (which were very good themselves). However, there is more to this latest chapter that improves it over the rest of the series. The graphics update looks great, and there are plenty of new forensic tools at your disposal. The cases themselves are longer and require more participation from you. And thatThe Mobile Analysis Unit is here!

    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 Though it may be powered by DirectX 8.1, this game does not disappoint.

    CSI lets you solve the crime yourself, and keeps you guessing the entire time. If you like the show, or like solving mysteries, this is the game for you. Way better than the first two, and those games were great! Although, the game does play fast, and you can't really play it over again for a long time.

    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.

    A solid installment to a much loved series, this is yet another reason to love the whole CSI franchise. 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!

  1. Initially the control scheme seems overly complicated; extended play reveals it’s anything but, with the game often verging on the easy side.
  2. Despite the touted inclusion of full 3D environments and longer cases, 3 Dimensions of Murder mostly covers well-worn territory, and it's still a breeze to play through.
  3. More like a series of interactive episodes of the show, with the point and click bits amounting to a basic means to get to the next part of the story.
