CSI: Hard Evidence Examined
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Mac|Life has posted a new review of CSI: Hard Evidence, the fourth game in the series adapted from the television show. In Hard Evidence players must use forensics and interrogation techniques to get to the bottom of five cases. Mac|Life gave the game a score of 3 out of 5.

From the review:

Working your way around the process of evidence gathering is somewhat tortuous and certainly gets repetitive. Mucking about with forensic gadgets is fun, and examining pieces of evidence in order to discover minutely important details is amusing. But having to perform three-directional clicks to simply access a computer, or spending several minutes figuring out how to reach a clue thatís in plain view, is dead tiresome.

Even so, the awkward procedural stuff remains engaging, thanks in no small part to some tight scripting. Physically gathering evidence might be a pain, but the payoff is a fresh insight into the crime or the opportunity to question a suspect who has been slow in coming forward. Fans of the 
TV show will, of course, love solving these five grisly cases. For the rest of you, while we canít really recommend Hard Evidence on the basis of being a well-constructed game, it would be remiss of us not to mention that we kept coming back for more in spite of our reservations. One last warning is in order however: Itís not a game for youngsters. The ESRB gave it a Mature rating for ďblood and gore, sexual themes, and violence.Ē
