Overall CSI Deadly Intent doesn't do anything groundbreaking, however, it is a fun title. If you are a big fan of the show(s) you should get a kick out of working alonside the cast to solve all of the cases. It would have been nice if the development team would have paid more attention to the controls. The variety of things that you can do in the lab can be pretty fun to do and if you get stuck on something it doesn't take too long until the game will offer you a hint.
There are some that will probably think this game is too easy while others will get a kick out of some of the puzzles. If you are a fan of the series or you simply enjoy point and click adventures be sure to check this title out.
