I had a chance to dig into CSI: New York, developed by legacy interactive today... Bottom line, it sucks.
It's full of low-res crappily drawn visuals, with no life to them. Random gameplay elements that would be more at home inside a "where's waldo" or "I spy" game... Complete removal of all the "processing" mini-games you guys had, replaced with various "complete the pattern" or "find 10 differences" games... It makes no sense.
Not to mention how friggin linear the game is... your hand is held the whole way through, and you are forced to operate in the order the game tells you to. No freedom is given to the player, at all.
Not to mention that they did not even finish the game... Apparently we have to check back in "early 2009" to download the fifth and final case. I'm all for online downloadable games, But there is a difference between doing it on purpose, and just not having the damn game finished.
Bottom line, I take back every complaint about the 2 CSI: games that you guys did... Legacy has no idea how to make a game for a franchise like this, they really did bite off more than they could chew, and they failed. Also, you guys gotta fight with Ubisoft for permission to make the next one... I can't go through another crappily made CSI: game like that again or my head will 'splode.
