5 games have been released based on the {{Series/CSI}} franchise, four based on the original CSI, and one based on Series/CSIMiami. Each game has 5 cases to solve, with the final case always connecting in some way with earlier ones. There are generally 3 suspects in each case, with one obvious suspect, one suspect with a BigSecret and another, non-suspicious one who turns out to be the killer. Though, the games are not above playing with murder mystery tropes.

5 8 games have been released based on the {{Series/CSI}} franchise, four six based on the original CSI, one based on Series/CSINY and one based on Series/CSIMiami. Each game has 5 cases to solve, with the final case always usually connecting in some way with earlier ones. There are generally 3 suspects in each case, with one obvious suspect, one suspect with a BigSecret and another, non-suspicious one who turns out to be the killer. Though, the games are not above playing with murder mystery tropes.



Recently, the first adaptation based on Series/CSINewYork was released under a new developer, Legacy Interactive, marking the second time the series switched developers, to mixed reception. A new Vegas based game, CSI: Deadly Intent, was released in October 2009 by Telltale, the successors to 369 Interactive in CSI game development. It featured the addition of [[Creator/LaurenceFishburne Dr. Raymond Langston]], bringing the games up to date with recent developments.
