Nothing like what I expected :(
I am a big criminal minds fan and didnt try the trial version since I really like the tv show I thought it would be interesting. I am happy that I used a credit for this game and didnt spend my money on it. Poor graphics, no speaking from the characters, very poor quality. I played it through the first case, there are only 2 and 1/2 way thorough I really wanted to quit. I don't think that I will even attempt the second case. Out of all the games that are available, a really poor choice to offer, there are so many better ones out there. HOS were way easy and following the game was just plain stupid. Its another TV Show game gone bad, i had this experience when I played House MD, which was even worse. I would not recommend this game at all.

Voices a must for this game!!!!
I bought this game a while ago to fill out my card Love the show so I figured the game would be good. Didn't try the demo, my mistake. Let me give you the pro's of the game first. Hos's are clear and bright, have a few scrambled words in them which you can either figure out or find a question mark for them. The question marks also works on your hint button. They also aren't filled to the brim with junk. The story isn't that bad either. Now for the cons. Where do I begin, what a pain in the butt. This whole game is interaction with NO VOICES. You have to read everything even when you're doing puzzles. I love interaction games and I own alot of them that you have to read but it doesn't make the game. This game is all about the dialogue. Don't get me wrong I love reading books but I don't expect my game to be one. I can't believe they took a great show and made a awful game from it. The only reason I finished the game was because I already bought it and I still had to force myself.

The first Big Fish game I've just hated
This really is the first Big Fish game I have hated. I just finished Case 1 and am so annoyed that I felt it necessary to warn off anyone who likes the show.
Criminal Minds is my favourite TV drama so I was expecting something at least a little challenging. I thought the storyline was tedious and the speech stilted. The switch between characters served no purpose other than to switch between characters. I found the gameplay surprisingly dull; the team had no basic tools to work with and the unsub was obvious. Finding 3 question marks in each hidden object session unscrambled the names of 3 objects - lame is the first word that comes to mind. I should have tried it out first, my bad; I am deleting it without bothering to look at the second case.

I don't watch the show so maybe that was the problem but I just found this game boring. played about 1/2 hour of the free game and couldn't go farther. reading what people say is boring, hidden object were odd, hard to find stuff, there was no logic to what I was doing. Sorry but I don't recommend this game especially if you don't watch the show.

No Challenge/Too short
There was no challenge to the hidden objects and puzzles. Even chosing expert mode. The stories were way too short. I do not recommend if you are looking for a more challenging game

I echo what some others have said already. It's just dated and the fact that there is absolutely no voice work is kind of shocking. It's about a TV show that a lot of us love. I expected some voices. I found the response time lacking as well and I have a brand new computer. I often had to click on an area twice. I had to shut the music off because it was annoying and distracting. In short, I had much higher expectations for this game and came away disappointed. Deleted it after 30 minutes.

A real bummer!
This game is so bad I couldn't stand to even finish the demo. It looks like what it is - hey, let's make a game based on a popular TV show and it will sell even if the game is lousy. The only redeeming feature I saw is the artwork.

Criminal Minds - don't bother
I love the TV show and have lots on DVD, so thought that this game would be exciting. Found it boring -- very slow and the graphics poor.

Just like the song, but I do like the song but this game is sooo boring that you can sleep in between cases and not give a whoo for this game
