T.V. and movie tie-ins are usually awful - can CSI crack this case?

"And I would have got away with it if it hadn’t have been for the pesky forensic evidence I left everywhere." Such is the lament of many a criminal, not least the ones in the x-rated versions of Scooby-Doo that never made it to TV (mainly because they were never made).
That science is at the heart of CSI: 3, which follows on from the original CSI, CSI: Miami and CSI: Dark Motives. That means you neither prevent the crime, nor do you commit it. You investigate it, along with the CSI team, obviously.
CSI: 3 is organised into six cases, giving you the chance to work with different members of the CSI team in each one. Mercifully, the show’s cast put their dramatic weight behind the voice acting, which prevents failure at the first hurdle.
Each case presents a different crime for you to solve. You do this by collecting and analysing the forensic evidence at the scene of the crime. The evidence is fairly easy to find, which cuts down a lot on pushing your mouse around the screen to find the thing you’re supposed to.
It isn’t just about finding bodily fluids, though. You may want to cross-check things at the crime scene. A bottle, for instance – maybe it has a fingerprint on there that you can run through the lab’s computers...

It’s definitely worth a look, but inevitably it lacks any replay value.
