  • Summary: CSI: Miami follows the format of Ubisoft's successful "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" game series. Players will solve a number of complex cases working with the stars of the show. Investigation includes using high-tech forensic tools to find the evidence, as well as interrogation and puzzle solving. "CSI: Miami" is a fast-paced drama inspired by the top-rated series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation that follows a South Florida team of forensic investigators who use both cutting-edge scientific methods and old-fashioned police work to solve crimes.

  1. I found the suspect/witness interviewing a bit tiresome at times and on occasion found myself wondering who I should talk to next, but then reminded myself that this is a crime investigation adventure where suspect/witness interviewing is a vital element.
  2. Very linear. You will not be able to progress until something is collected or someone is questioned.
  3. As an episode, this would be quite entertaining to watch once or twice. As a game, however, it doesn’t manage to get the job done, falling way too short on actual substance and gameplay.
  4. It's a copy of a previously released game that wasn't that great to begin with, but with the less-engaging characters of the Miami cast and a series of mysteries that also aren't as interesting.
  5. It doesn't require much thinking but since CSI has been doing the thinking for viewers for so many years maybe the majority of the game players will require this level of babysitting.

    Point-and-click adventures can be great, but more often than not they end up being tedious and mundane. CSI: Miami falls squarely into the latter category, despite the high production values and being so faithful to the source material.
  7. The game's dialogue system almost resembles a tree, except you basically just click on any of the questions until they're all gone. Interrogation at its, um, finest. [June 2005, p.58]

    The game is great and the series itself is far more greater. Good game, advanced technology, outstanding graphics, great storyline. Just wonder, when will Max Collins next book on CSI Miami, coming out on sale? Expand

    Although this game is basically identical to its two predecessors, I think the balance has finally been found between challanging and impossible. A good set of stories that kept me interested right to the end of the 5th. Expand

    The game itself was alright, However, it only has five cases in the whole game! It took me a day and I completed the game!

    Another piece of junk from Ubi Soft. Terrible waste of time and money.
