In summary, CSI: Deadly Intent is an entirely lacklustre game. The return to traditional form will please those put off by the casual surprise of last year, but even that enthusiasm won’t last for long. It’s becoming clear that the publisher, Ubisoft, just isn't willing to invest enough in this series to move beyond the status quo, and this latest installment can’t even trade blows with the highlights of earlier games. Both the originality of the cases and the production values have actively declined from previous entries, none of which have exactly been classics, even at their best. If you are a real CSI obsessive, particularly enjoy the game series, or are looking for some very slight detective work, you might eke some enjoyment from this title. Anyone wanting meatier stories and challenges will find this game less Deadly Intent, more deadly boring.
