It would be a crime not to

Advantagesgreat thinking ability

Disadvantagessometimes easy to miss clues

"I have never watched CSI on TV, but I do like a good mystery game to get my brain cells thinking. I was intrigued by CSI Dark Motives for the ds when I bought a CSI game for my WII. The two games were different with different storylines which was good as I find that if they are the same I never want to buy on more than one console no matter how different the controls might be.==Outline of the game==You play a new Crime scene investigator ..."

CSI strikes on NDS

Advantagesfirst CSI on NDS, menu music, some good cases

DisadvantagesPlayability, no freedom in the lab, difficulty to spot evidences

""Hey, Vic, why don't you buy the DS version of Dark Motives? You will not be forced to install again the PC version and being reminded of the constant frustration.... Well, you know, after playing Hard Evidence, you know that playing an old game is a worst thing... - But it cost 40 euros and I will have only 10 in my wallet for the week! - We're Wednesday, Thursday, you don't have lessons and Friday, you have nothing to buy. And you're in your writing-walkthrough ..." Read review

CSI (Dark Motives) on the DS - challenging?

AdvantagesInteresting only for a while

DisadvantagesVery repetitive, cumbersome controls

"CSI (Crime Scene Investigation) : Dark Motives is a game for the Nintendo DS, based on the television series, and requiring you solve various different cases with logical thought and using various tools to examine the crime scenes. The game controls can be quite fiddly, giving the appearance that the game is more of a port from the PC versions of the game released a few years ago, rather than the game being re-designed to meet the requirements of ..."

CSI an excellent gaming experience

Advantagesvery strategic, good to get you thinking, very intricate

Disadvantagessome parts can be very hard but keep trooping on

"This is an excellent game. It makes you think and use your brain to make the clues fit. Some parts are difficult to get past as the clues are very intircate but keep going and you can do it. And to top it off at the end of each part you get a quiz of 4 questions that detail the scene and evidence you have collected, the questions are very specific so keep a keen eye out!! All in all the game is very strategic and keeps you on your toes, try not to ..." Read review

CSI:Dark Motives Nintendo DS - Good fun but slow pace

AdvantagesGood fun for those wanting to be a CSI

DisadvantagesVery long winded and compliacted in places

"I love CSI and thought that the game for the DS would be my chance to become my own detective. The games graphics are good and the story is well explained however i found it complicated in places especially when it came to analysing the evidence and the instructions on that part of the came did not help much. I thought it was very in keeping with the CSI series and enjoyed being able to search different locations. It is a game that takes time ..." Read review

CSI dark motives is awful

AdvantagesNONE

DisadvantagesEXTREMELY HARD, BORING, ANNOYING, WASTE OF MONEY

"CSI dark motives on Nintendo DS is most possibly the worst game i have ever played on the DS, the graphics are bad enough but its the game play that is the main problem its so repetitive all you have to do is find clues which believe me is hard enough without the very boring and EXTREMELY HARD missions to way to short and SO SO annoying when you can't find the clues. If you can manage to find all of the clues you could complete the game in under ..." Read review
