Quandary Review by Gordon Alpin

"The first CSI: Crime Scene Investigation game was quite entertaining and ideally suited to new or casual gamers... CSI: Dark Motives has raised the bar a notch or two adding more depth and complexity to the five new cases that are available for you to investigate, whilst still being perfectly accessible to new players. It is a worthy successor to the first game and I found it to be more challenging and engrossing."

"The cases are interesting and varied and encompass a motor cycle stunt that goes wrong; a body found on an ancient site; a body dumped in an abandoned asylum; an actress who literally dies on stage, but not of fright; and a missing Komodo dragon. One thing links all the cases and that is the minute evidence that you must uncover and interpret correctly. Careful exploration is called for and this is one game where diligent searching is in context as perpetrators don't leave flashing signs that say 'click here for tell-tale bloodstains', but they do leave traces. On a number of occasions I was convinced I had discovered everything that a location had to offer only to find that I had indeed overlooked vital clues on my initial 'sweep' of the scene. I'll give one general hint here ... don't just look on the floor for clues. And there is another reason to be generally observant ... at the end of each case there is a small quiz where you have to answer five multiple choice questions about things you learned or saw during the investigation. This can help you to improve your rank."

"CSI: Dark Motives features improved graphics over the original game. The characters are certainly more finely detailed though their range of movement is still fairly restricted. The voice acting once again is by the original cast and lends an atmosphere of authenticity to the game."
