If you are one of those who really love FBI agents themed tv-shows and games, Criminal Minds is just for you. Why? Because it is about the elite detectives and it is tv-show-based. But there are also other requirements, of course, to be considered. The audio-visual presentation is not a masterpiece really, for example.
The hidden object scenes aren't over done and the items are clear to see.
You are going to join the Behavioral Analysis Unit of the FBI. Doesn't that reminds you of Dr. Lightman a bit? You will be solving a series of shocking crimes. This will inclde a lot of work at the crime scenes, clues and evidence analizing, and suspects interogation. So if you are into these detective stories, you will enjoy the story a lot.
The audio-visual presentation is a different thing here. If you are a fan of beautifully drawn graphis, then you should know that this is not the case. The scenes are quite basic without too much art or details. There is also no voice over, so you will have to read all the dialogues.
The hidden object scenes aren't over done and the items are clear to see, sometimes on the small side. There is a little interaction for you are you search for some of the items. Some of the words are scrambled but finding question marks in the hidden object scenes unscrambles them. There are also coins you pick up, which add hints or time.
There is no map or journal but there is a task list to refer to. Using a hint outside the hidden object scenes will open a pad with the next objective. So you are not going to get lost. The game is not really short either. It will take you quite a while to solve all the cases.
The game is great, but it is deffinitely going to be not enough - fill in the blank - in one of its areas for some. The trial version is a great idea before byuing this one.
