  1. All true CSI fans, turn your speakers up, put the kettle on and switch off your phone, as you get comfortable in your favourite chair.
  2. Overall CSI Deadly Intent doesn’t do anything groundbreaking, however, it is a fun title.
  3. Aside from the five new cases and a few technical improvements, this new CSI game doesn’t offer a whole lot of changes but remains an interesting title to check out in between other games. Just don’t expect to be blown away by it. If you can keep your expectations low you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
  4. Same old story: linear, ugly to see, easy to solve.
  5. The slow-to-respond point-and-click gameplay is more pixel-hunting than actual deductive case-solving. [Dec 2009, p.82]
  6. Technically woeful by-the-numbers tot with a few perversely enjoyable bits. [Jan 2010, p.79]
  7. This is not a game, it is just a bunch of barely interactive episodes of the show and as such, is only suitable for die hard fans and people in need of a quick gamerscore boost. Everyone else should steer well clear as there is precious little fun to be had here and the whole thing soon gets mindlessly repetitive.

    A totally unsurprising little adventure. Five murder cases, ten hours of entertainment stripped of any challenge whatsoever, and somehow even easier than the previous CSI game. Not exactly bad or disappointing (when picked up cheap from a bargain bin and knowing what to expect) but it's certainly more of a simple interactive experience than a genuine game. Expand
