Overall, CSI is an okay crime game, but I can't recommend it for several reasons. Namely, there are only five cases. Solving them takes less than an hour each, and you get so many hints along the way, even without asking the CSI agent for help, that it takes no skill to find out who committed the crime. You can't make a mistake because if you try to use the wrong tool you're told either that you can't use it or to use a similar tool. I found it amusing that several times I tried dusting for prints only to be told that there were no prints there. I would have preferred to be allowed to try rather than be told that it wouldn't have turned up anything. The only challenge is to get 100% in each of the cases, and doing that relies more on completing the steps in the order CSI wants you to rather than using any investigative ability.
