As I say, easy and boring. Collecting and processing evidence is made so easy you don't need to pay too much attention to what is happening, just click, click, click. In fact the whole game is like that. The graphics are atrocious - I particularly loved zooming in to a piece of evidence only to be confronted with a mass of giant pixels I had to wave my cursor across in order to find a fingerprint or a hair. The lag on my mouse almost made me scream with frustration like other reviewers, as did knowing who had 'done it' fairly early on in each case and having to slowly click my way through to each boring conclusion. Unless I have rose-tinted specs, I'm sure the CSI games used to be better than this? They were at least more challenging in the respect that you had to choose your own collecting equipment - and you got a more varied selection of equipment for collection and processing too. In this game you're just comparing DNA and fingerprints all the time and that's very dull. When you do use other equipment you're doing a five-piece jigsaw or using sliders to read a document better, and you only do that once. Also, in my copy the microscope didn't bring things into focus so I had to move the slider by increments until it told me there was a match or not.

Buy it only if it comes down to about £3.

More of the same, which is pretty much what I expected from CSI! It's pretty much the exact same as the last game in terms of Graphics, voice artists, design, forensic work, so don't expect it to evolve much. It is as good as any previous CSI Vegas game, so if you enjoyed them, you'll enjoy this too, especially for the minor price!

Also in reply to someone who said that this is little more than 'pointing and clicking' you should really take notice of the kind of game this is: Point and click.

Arrived on the date given and, as expected, the packaging was excellent. I had ordered 3 other PC games and the 4 arrived in the same package. For the price I paid the games really exceeded my expectations. Obviously I had to try out the games and no faults have come to light yet. Once again my shopping with Amazon has been painless. Slowly but surely I am being attracted away from another large buying site, however it means I get more choice each time I shop

I have played the previous CSI PC Games, and I have enjoyed playing them all.
This game retains the standards of the previous games and gives you a feel of
what it is to be an excellent CSI.
The controls and interface are easy to use and with the voices of the original
actors playing their TV characters (with the exception of Catherine Willows) it
was an excellent experience to play this game.
Each individual case is interesting and you have to use your wits, skill and
intelligence to solve them. You'll enjoy the final case ending.
Hope there will be another game soon.

I've just finished the first case and I'm bored already. The hardest part is controlling the cursor, which seems to lag behind my mouse movement so much it makes it difficult to pin point anything. When you find evidence you are more or less told which tool to use to retrieve it. Processing the evidence isn't hard either. It's a few years since I last played a CSI game on the pc and I am very disappointed with it. There is no real brain power needed and I find myself turning it off after 30 minutes.

If you've really enjoyed CSI in the past then I wouldn't bother with this one, you will be disappointed.

Whilst this product arrived on time and was packaged well, the content would not run in either a Windows 7 or a Windows XP environment - both reporting a missing file 'd3dx9_41.dll'. The game is no good if it doesn't run. Very disappointed. I have other CSI games that run in these environments.

Game manufacturers seem to think that fans of the point and click adventure always want bigger and better graphics. 'Gimme 3D' they think. No, what we want is better gameplay, even 2D, as long as the puzzles are good and the story interesting. I have enjoyed several of the CSI series but this is just boring - so little to do - even to the extent that the correct forensic equipment used to gather evidence is highlighted. (learning these skills is usually part of the enjoyment of the game). Very limited apart from following orders, two large laboratories, but some equipment hardly touched,very simplistic and formulaec analysis and no game satisfaction at the end for catching 'the Baddy'. Come on CSI you can do so much better!

I am a fan of the CSI games generally but, despite the fact that I have all the necessary equipment for the game to run smoothly, it doesn't! In particular I get a blank screen when it should be displaying the dramatic reconstructions and it will not let me move on to the next case after finishing the first one.

Ubisoft have not sorted this out and has left me wondering whether this game has been poorly produced as a budget title. C'mon Ubisoft, this is grim!
