    A title designed and developed in order to gather the attention of many fans of the television series. The introduction of a common story line between the five cases is a good idea, but perhaps not enough to compensate the lack of innovation that, after the years and the episodes, is a real shame.

    With Fatal Conspiracy, it is as if Telltale forgot what made Sam & Max, Monkey Island, and Wallace and Gromit so successful in the console world, and it comes off as a sorry port of a lackluster PC game.

    For someone who actually enjoyed playing CSI: Deadly Intent, the minor gameplay improvements here only led to an inadvertent feeling of repetitiveness, minus the joy of those amusing cases from the last game.

    Remember that attractive, animated style that made Wallace and Gromit so easy on the eyes? Let's just say things haven't been quite so pretty for the CSI folks.
  5. Not the best, but Fatal Conspiracy is better than its individual parts would have you believe. [Jan 2011, p.82]

    One day someone will nail this series and make a game that does its mystery characteristics justice, but we're stuck waiting until then. [Issue#66, p.91]

    We often see subpar games based on know franchises, but this one clearly wastes a lot of possibilities.
