Summary

Nice Game... Too Short!

The Good

The plot is nice. Voice acting is very good; done by the actors from the tv-series. The learning curve starts out very well. The first case is a real adventure as well as a tutorial.

The Bad

Too short. If they had released a demo, it would have covered the entire game. I played through it in about 8 hours. They try to ad some replay value by giving percentage scores to how well you've done. The higher the score, the more additional material is uncovered. Unfortunately the cases (though very entertaining the first time) aren’t interesting enough to play again and the bones material is just the ordinary sketch-art any normal game would give you for free or had already published on their website.

The Bottom Line

A perfect game for beginning Adventure gamers and for CSI fans. Don’t spent too much money on it for you wont get more than two or three night of fun out of it.
