CSI: Hard Evidence is a Wii program that lets investigative types work on forensic evidence and finally follow the clues to the killer or killers. It has some really good cases, clues, and equipment. You just click and it tells you what is there. After seeing this program in one of our stores for about 30 dollars, I decided to check Amazon.com. It was a great price of 19.99. Also, it uses the Las Vegas CSI crew as trainers for the newbies (that's you).

Seriously, if I had been able to go to college when I was younger, I might have enjoyed working in the forensic field. I find that as long as I don't have to deal with smells (thankfully games don't use all of the senses yet), then I have a great time collecting evidence, looking through the scopes, and checking fingerprints. The hardest part of the game for me was matching DNA. There are so many alleles that it can be difficult telling which DNA sample is which.

Also, I have been through this game twice already. Yep, I am a senior investigator.

For those of you who like puzzles, this is the game for you. If you are into action/adventure, this game does not fulfill that expectation. It is for thinking. It is putting the pieces together. It is finding the killer. What a rush.
