Optisch bleibt der Titel weit unter den heutigen Möglichkeiten. Das ist schade, denn mit einer detaillierteren Grafik würde sicher eine noch dichtere Atmospähre entstehen. So bleibt es bei einer zweckmäßigen Darstellung, die Sie alles erkennen lässt, aber nicht zu Begeisterungsstürmen hinreißt. Bedauerlich ist, dass sämtliche Dialoge englisch gesprochen werden und Sie die deutsche Übersetzung lediglich als Untertitel eingeblendet vorfinden. Das zehrt enorm an dem Gefühl, als tragende Figur Teil der beliebten TV-Serie zu sein. Dank der simplen und durchdachten Bedienung und der ausgeklügelten Fälle hat das Spiel aber dennoch eine "gute" Bewertung verdient.

„CSI: Crime Scene Investigation - Eindeutige Beweise“ wagt den Versuch, das auf der Xbox 360 bisher stiefmütterlich behandelte Adventure-Genre zu etablieren und gibt dabei leider eine sehr müßige Figur ab. Das Gameplay ist inspirationslos, die Grafik weit hinter den heutigen Standards und der Spannungsgrad mittelmäßig. Das Hauptproblem ist der viel zu niedrig angesetzte Schwierigkeitsgrad, der dem Spieler den nächsten Schritt zumeist auf einem Silbertablett serviert. Unterstrichen wird dies durch die anspruchslosen Konversationen, bei denen ihr lediglich einen vorgefertigten Fragenkatalog stellt. Dass man zudem auf eine deutsche Sprachausgabe verzichtet hat, ist ebenfalls nicht nachvollziehbar.

Au final, cette mouture console des Experts est fidèle à la version PC : mêmes qualités, mêmes défauts. Seules différences : elle est un peu plus chère et un poil moins maniable. Mais elle bénéficie d'un avantage de taille : sur 360, les point & click d'investigation policière ne sont pas légion...

Les experts : Morts Programmées est un mauvais jeu, indigne de la Xbox 360, et illustration parfaite de l’utilisation bâclée d’une licence. Pourtant, malgré toutes ses faiblesses, le jeu pourra donner satisfaction aux amateurs d’enquêtes policières, tant ce genre n’existe plus en jeux-vidéo. Pour pouvoir apprécier le jeu, il faut juste ne pas être très exigeant et aimer les histoires tordues, les affaires présentées étant de dignes illustrations de ce qu’on peut voir dans la série télé. Probablement qu’il faut également payer le jeu une somme modique sous peine de se sentir un peu arnaqué ! A noter pour les amateurs de succès que ce jeu semble fait pour eux tant il est simple d’obtenir les 1000 points sans efforts. Pour scorer, pas la peine d’être un expert.

The CSI games have become better in recent outings, but ultimately this title feels a lot like treading water, and in some respects, a small regression from the last game. With few new additions, increasingly dated graphics, and gameplay still in dire need of a little more substance, you’ll likely be entertained by the latest CSI, but not enthralled. Making the game easy and simple to play is understandable, as it's designed to appeal to fans of the show, not gamers. But it’s quite possible to have simplicity and depth, and the latter is once again missing in Hard Evidence. There's some effortless enjoyment to be found here, then, but until Ubisoft (or their CBS overlords) is prepared to take a few creative risks with the franchise, players will continue to feel as if they’re watching the CSIs, not being one.

CSI: Hard Evidence is a vast improvement over the previous CSI game, but given how absolutely rubbish that effort was, this shouldn't really be taken as a compliment. Yes, the environments are all 3D now, the case-breaking bugs have been squashed, and the actual mysteries will keep you guessing...but that's only just enough to keep this one off death row. The underlying gameplay mechanics just aren't great, and the linearity of the crime-solving coupled with the abysmal graphics cause grievous bodily harm to the title. The jury's verdict is in, and CSI: Hard Evidence has been found guilty of being boring and bland.

If you've already invested in the previous CSI games, you're not going to find anything new or exciting here in the gameplay department. All you'll get are five brand-new cases that you will solve exactly the same way you did in the previous games. If that's enough for you, then by all means, give Hard Evidence a shot. However, more discerning players looking for something vaguely resembling a challenge would do best to skip this one.

CSI: Eindeutige Beweise von Ubisoft ist sicherlich ein netter Fan-Artikel zur TV-Serie. Wer aber auf der Suche nach Unterhaltung und langanhaltender Spannung zu diesem Spiel greift, hat eventuell einen großen Fehlkauf in der Tasche. Hinter dem Spiel stecken sicherlich nette Ideen, die aber zu langweilig umgesetzt wurden. Im Grunde genommen klickt man sich nur durch die Fälle um am Ende die 200 Gamerscore für jeden Fall zu erhalten.

The game is actually kind of fun, but, unfortunately, for all the reviving of the point-and-click adventure genre TTG did with Sam & Max, CSI just plants the genre’s foot firmly back into its grave with this game’s blatant laziness and reliance not on quality game design, but on the CSI license and lucrative product placement deals to make a quick buck.

Für die Xbox-360-Version gilt Ähnliches wie für die PC-Version des Spiels: langweilig, simpel, kurz und schwach präsentiert. Dazu kommt noch die inkonsistente Steuerung, sodass die Konsolenvariante des Titels in Summe sogar noch schwächer daherkommt. Finger weg, außer ihr seid unverbesserlicher Fan der Serie.

Game Informer Magazine
Most of the cases are laughably predictable and don't harness the intrigue or razor-sharp writing from the CSI show. By no means do i recommend that you play this over any other game (except Two Worlds), but if you can make it through six or seven hours of woefully uninteresting content, you will net an easy 1,000 Achievement Points. It pays out nicely, but it'll kill you a little bit in the process.

Game Couch
The game follows the show’s premise of solving murders through the collection and analysis of evidence: fingerprints, DNA, bits of fabric and the like. CSI theory posits that there is a trinity linking suspects to victims to crime scenes and back. Your goal is to collect all the evidence, following it through to an arrest. Unfortunately, instead of using modern day gaming technology to create an immersive CSI experience, Telltale offers up a boilerplate exercise in pointing and clicking.

Ubisoft chose the right developer, but clearly it's a game which wasn't very high up on the publisher's list of priorities in terms of investing in it, and it shows. If you're a die-hard adventure apologist with a CSI fixation then step right up, but the rest of you can put your curiosity to one side - especially at its current stupidly high price point.

The Review Busters
CSI: Hard Evidence for the Xbox 360 is the best and worst point and click adventure on the console, mainly since I believe it's the only one out. These kind of games can get old real fast, but for some reason CSI doesn't get old right away. With almost ten hours of game play here this game is longer than most Playstation 3 games, even some other games on the Xbox 360 and Wii as well. I'm sorry I had to make this my last review for awhile on Xbox 360 games, but if you have some time to kill between Halo 3 and Bioshock, which I will review soon since I just beat the game late last week, CSI is worth a rental. The $39.99 price tag sounds good but there is no replay value to this game, when you beat the five cases you are done and I doubt Ubisoft will release any downloadable content for this game since they can easily make another one in a few months.

Rent this game for points but only if you are desperate. The storyline and acting are poor, the graphics are sub-par and there is no replay value at all to be had. I can’t honestly tell who this game was meant to appeal to as the basic game mechanic soon becomes repetitive and the presentation is more of a parody of the show rather than an accurate representation. Steer clear.

There is some sort of fun in here somewhere, especially if you are tired of the usual games we expect from consoles, but it's all too short lived and totally uninspiring. I would recommend that you avoid buying this game unless you would like to keep the wife/girlfriend entertained for a few hours in your absence. However I'm pretty sure she could probably find a million and one other things to do with the time that are far more gratifying. CSI: Hard Evidence is a rental at best and will most likely be rented by fans and achievement hunters.

Finding any redeeming qualities in CSI: Hard Evidence is like searching for clues in a crime scene drenched in bleach. Being a huge fan of the series myself, I’m the type of person who, if anyone, should enjoy the game. However, its utter lack of quality in every department is bordering on criminal. Playing CSI: Hard Evidence is a chore and one that’s not even worth doing to collect some of the easiest 1000 achievement points out there. Not even the most hardcore of CSI fans will find anything in Hard Evidence worth their time or money. It’s an embarrassment to the TV show and to Ubisoft, who should frankly know better.
