Despite never having watched the TV show, or displaying any kind of predeliction for poking around with dead bodies, I’ve recently found myself playing CSI: Deadly Intent – The Hidden Cases on the DS.

In the game, you play through four cases as a rookie CSI, joined by famous faces from the show (none of which – with the exception of Larry Fishburne – I recognise, of course). Most of the time, it’s simply a case of, sweeping around the crime scene with your stylus, solving a few mini-games, and then sitting back and enjoying the story.

It’s certainly a pretty passive experience in which it’s pretty hard to get stuck, but all the same, I rather enjoyed it. Any game that allows you to enter your own name so that it crops up in all the dialogue is okay by me – it makes any ‘amusing bollocking’ scenes all the more entertaining.

So now, I want more, but apparently the last CSI game wasn’t much cop on DS.

So what else is there to do? I find myself suddenly wanting to watching the show. But wait! There’s a whole host of CSI games for the PC! To Amazon!
