  1. The only saving grace is the excellent, original voice acting. Instead of taking up the investigative work we are forced to partake in a string of minigames that could well serve as the developmental tools in the kindergarten, were it not for their gruesome matter. The ancient, two dimensional, low resolution graphics is also a grim joke. [Mar 2009]
  2. There’s nothing really intellectually stimulating, the 2D graphic novel-style graphics leave things to be desired, and the concept tires quickly.
  3. 58
    It's just a very monotonous experience.
  4. CSI: NY - The Game unfolds most fun while it`s still packed. Interaction with the gaming world does not exist apart from collecting various items, interviewing suspects and playing boring mini games, so that even fans of CSI: New York will probably not feel motivated to finish all the episodes.
  5. While it’s an entertaining romp for the first hour or so, the game will tire quickly on the player. The show is much more exciting than the video game so it’s best to stick to watching CSI on your television rather than playing it on your PC.
  6. Pull the sheet over it and give it a proper burial.

    There is not much to expect from this except for Detective Mac Taylor and New York. Other then that you're doing the same things, There is not much to expect from this except for Detective Mac Taylor and New York. Other then that you're doing the same things, collecting evidence, analyze and convict a suspect. Stay clear of this P.C. game! However, if you own a Verizon Mobile the Mobile Verizon is available and I think this is one of those where it should have only been made for handheld and mobile devises. I like the Mobile version and when I played the P.C. I was shocked that the graphics where almost IDENTICAL!! Mobile only, not P.C. no exceptions! Full Review »
