  1. With the exception of the bugs that I mentioned, this game is compelling. When you feel the need to play a game in any spare moment (bugs and all) you know that it's a good game.
  2. The game has its fair share of aggravating glitches, but manages to simulate the feel of the show and offer up a substantial crime scene experience at the same time.
  3. This is definitely one for the mystery and adventure gaming crowds, but may quickly become a novelty for gamers of other genres.

    It's still a fine adaptation, offering a surprising amount of gumshoe depth. [Mar 2006, p.102]
  5. The biggest mysteries to be solved in this game, however, are the technical problems. As great as it is to have beautiful graphics and realistic noises and other great miracles of technology, they are taxing on computers, and mine isn’t even three years old.
