CSI: NY is a point-and-click adventure game based on the television series of the same name.

Why It Sucks

  1. Menus and options are extremely barebones.
  2. There are awkward video transitions when changing buildings.
  3. The game's repetitive and monotonous minigames just really hinder the passable story elements.
  4. Each of the game's four episodes will take you between one to two hours. But once you're done with the available missions, there really isn't a big reason to go back.
  5. Simple, 2D, static graphics lower production values.
  6. Over-simplified control scheme lessens the challenge.
  7. Lacks impact and emotion.
  8. Repetitive gameplay formula.
  9. Mini-games feel detached from actual objectives.
  10. Pointless hidden object secrecy to begin each scene
  11. Art style not particularly suited to the subject matter
  12. Very short even with the bonus content.
  13. The publisher forgot to tell anyone this is a casual game.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Welcome foray into the New York setting.
  2. Authentic likenesses and voices from the TV show for the characters.
  3. The game has a decent mix of integrated puzzles and minigames.
  4. There are some interesting case stories.
  5. The game includes behind the scenes footage with the actors.
