Description: CSI VR: Crime Scene Investigation is the first episode and unique game of an upcoming CSI VR game series we are glad to introduce you. A realistic crime-solving experience game for HTC Vive and/or Oculus. The aim is to find the murderer following the solving process. One Mansion, One Detective, Two Victims…
A vicious murder has been committed. This case needs a bold point of view to be solved and you will be the one who is sharp enough to solve it. Two households -husband and wife- were killed and the killer left evidence behind. Follow the traces, find the evidence that will lead you to the murderer, examine all in the laboratory and never forget that the killer is among us. You will be experiencing a whole case solving process of a CSI. It’s your time to be smart, discern what is going on around and leave nothing underinvestigated.
Review: Let’s start with the biggest bombshell…’CSI VR: Crime Scene Investigation’ is not an official CSI (TV shop) VR game. In fact, on your way to the first crime I could have sworn I was sat next to Inspector Gadget from the 80’s cartoon show! Sadly for this game that was the best bit in the game and even that sucked! Well…maybe I am being a bit unfair as on paper it is a good idea for a game, but with its terrible controls and absolutely diabolical graphics, this game just falls apart. While it isn’t worth much more than a single quid of your money there are some good ideas here that could bear fruit in the future.
