After a disappointing first appearance on the DS a little over two years ago, CSI has returned to the handheld for an encore and gotten the formula right this time around. The up-to-date cast, new visual style and gameplay engine, and the set of cases written exclusively for this game make Deadly Intent -- The Hidden Cases a game that DS-owning fans of the show should definitely take note of. The only trouble you're likely to run into is its linearity -- the fact that it can feel like you're just tapping along with an pre-determined plot progression instead of really interacting with the investigation. Those that have been purely passive participants in the program for nearly a decade, though (by just watching the show), probably won't mind that one bit.

En lieu et place d'un jeu d'aventure, on se retrouve face à une suite de mini-jeux, de puzzles pas toujours très clairs ni vraiment plaisants et à un passage au peigne fin de l'écran avec le stylet. Au final, on peut quasiment terminer le jeu sans réellement prendre garde à ce qu'il se passe dans l'enquête, y compris lors des interrogatoires. Un comble.
