The latest crime-solving game will lead you down the slippery trails of evidence into the steamy world of Miami's beaches and night-clubs. Join the cast of CSI: Miami and use their high-tech crime lab to find the truth and dissect the criminal mind...

CSI: Miami follows a similar format to that of Ubisoft's CSI: Crime Scene Investigation game series. Players have to solve a number of complex cases working with the characters from the show. Investigation includes using high-tech forensic tools to find the evidence, as well as interrogation and puzzle solving.

This point and click adventure gives you the chance to play super sleuth as you interview witnesses, and generally snoop around poking your nose into other peoples business.

No, it's nothing like the boring world of real forensic evidence - collecting blood from a crime scene and taking it back to the lab for analysis. You get to do all of the investigating as well as running everything through the lab (like in the show).

The plot to the crimes are written by Max Allan Collins, so you know that at least you will be getting a TV episode style investigation rather than some amateur detective story.

There are also mini-games that help to keep this feeling fresh. One example is where you have to piece together a smashed item by finding the right bits and fitting them in the correct place.

The great thing about this game is that you don't even have to have seen the show to play it. Whichever way you look at it, this is an engrossing point and click game which will appeal to the amateur sleuth in all of us.
