    I've played this game for over a year now and I am completely fixated with it. It is amazing- well worth every penny. And having the added edition of the real actors giving voice overs you feel like you've been put into the game- it is well worth playing!

    Brilliant! I loved the first game but it was a little easy and the cases too short. Dark motives improves on the first in every way: longer, harder cases with more twists and more tools to play with. A great game! Hopefully they'll make many more like it.

    This is a fun game. If your lookin for a game with a bit of hard mystery, this is the game! It's fun to work with Cathrine, Greg, analize evidence yourself on the computer, and pretend to be that rookie investigator. This is deffinatly a fun game, with some challenges(if your not a total brilliant computer game geek)haha

  1. An excellent sequel—with better graphics, twice the length, a greater degree of difficulty. It has a few bugs (get patch 1.01) but should run fine on even minimum-specification systems.
  2. The stories are good, the voice work is strong but the investigating parts in between tend to get a little tedious. Even with all the cool CSI crime fighting tools.
  3. If you’re looking for puzzles, then there are any number of adventures better suited for you. But if you like the idea of hanging out with Gil Grissom and the rest of the “CSI” team, then Dark Motives can provide a weekend’s worth of enjoyment.
