This certficate 16 PC game is based on the original TV series. It was released in 2003. We have all the characters from the series including Gil Grissom. The characters and voices sound very similar to the actors playing them, so it's fair to assume they allowed their likenesses to be used. THE...

ConsToo easy perhaps, crimes are too short.

I had never heard of the TV Show or the PC Game of this before I walked into a music store one day and saw it. I'd always liked detective games and that, so I looked at this and it looked like just the game I liked - so I bought it and sure enough I wasn't surprised. The specs needed to run this...

This PC game is an excellent buy. I bought it secondhand, and was extremely pleased. The likenesses of the characters are excellent, and using the original actors' voices only enhances the effect. The game is addictive, however, I found myself spending many a weekend staying up gone midnight to...

Product Information : CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (PC)

Manufacturer's product description

CSI comes to life on your PC with all the cyber-Sherlock Holmes appeal fans know and love. The high production value of the game and its faithful adherence to the theme, style, and sound of the show prove that its not just a crass attempt to cash in on the CSI craze. As you'd expect, CSI is a mystery adventure game that follows the format of the show. You collect evidence, head to the lab, visit the morgue and so on. You scrutinise the game's screens, looking for evidence or areas that may contain hidden clues. You can use Luminal to find blood traces, you can dust for prints, and you can use the sniffer to get gas samples--all are familiar tools and methods used in the show. CSI fans will likely intuitively know when and where to use each item while adventure game fans will delight in having such new, high tech toys. CSI offers five quality storylines, each of which would feel at home on the show. While you don't get to fill the shoes of one of the show's well-known characters, you do get to work with each of them as you progress along the CSI investigative chain. Show characters join you to provide hints and help you establish the motive, means, and opportunity needed to determine and catch the bad guy.Fans of the show will forgive the short length of the game and merely adequate graphics just because of the quality storylines, use of the real actors, and respect shown the license. Adventure game fans will also appreciate it, even if they'll find it a bit too easy (it's aimed at mainstream fans more than hardcore gamers). CSI brings enough true crime class to be of interest to everyone. --Andrew S Bub In CSI: Crime Scene Investigation you become a CSI agent working alongside Gil Grissom, Catherine Willows and the rest of the CSI Las Vegas team. As a member of the team you question witnesses, examine crime scenes, and analyse evidence using the latest forensic equipment. All eight cast members provided their voices and likenesses for the game--their in-game counterparts look and sound just like the characters in the show. Digital artists used pictures of CSI sets to perfectly recreate the labs and offices of the show. The script was written by Max Allan Collins, author of three CSI novels and the bestselling book Road to Perdition. Ubi Soft Entertainment consulted Las Vegas Senior Crime Scene Analyst Daniel Holstein to validate the accuracy of the CSI forensics referenced in the game. This is as real as it gets.
