I love this show and was looking forward to this game but I was hugely dissappointed. I felt like I was playing a game from my older games collection. The graphics were poor. There is no sense of direction on what to do next. At one point you need something to cut a rope holding a ladder. If you use the hint it tells you to use A or B that you got doing a HO scene but I already used A and B was not placed in my inventory when I found it. I only played about 40 minutes of my free hour.

I really like hidden object/adventure games and thought the concept behind the Criminal Minds game was great. There are several different cases for you to choose from. However, I experienced a few glitches that prevented me from completing some aspects of the game. I have a very fast, brand new gaming laptop and have never had any problems before. However, keep in mind that it certainly could have been something going on on my end and no fault of the game itself. That being said, I still felt that Criminal Minds was just a tad lacking. If I had never played this style of game before I would have probably been blown away and very excited. However, if you are familiar with the genre I think you might find that the gameplay seems a bit stilted. The world in which you play is very tightly structured and doesn't leave room for the 3D feel or free exploration. I feel that this game could use some cosmetic polishing. Overall, I thought it was okay. Perhaps my expectations were too high. I can't recommend this game due to the stellar competition available on the market today. I think your money would be better spent elsewhere. Would be a good game to buy on a $2.99 sale.

Disappointed in Criminal Minds
I love the show but this games does no justice to it. too much running around, lame storylines and easy HO scenes.

I don't care for it
I think this game is boring. To much reading (even though I love to read) It was just too much. I wish I had not bought it.
The HOGS were good as they went with the story. Other than that, I haven't even finished it.

A game based on a TV show and no voiceovers?!?
I thought I would enjoy the game since I enjoy the show, but the game felt very flat. Without having the original actor's voice's, this game feels like a very cheap knockoff.

Locked up on me
I couldn't finish the game and had to delete it -- it locked up on me about halfway through and would not let me click through to a vital area. After reinstalling and restarting several times, I just gave up.
But I love the show, and I'm pretty heartbroken that it didn't work!

If you like "clicking" ALOT this is your game
I felt like I was constantly clicking through this game...I played for about 10 minutes and this is why:
1. Tutorial has little directions...I actually stumbled onto what I was supposed to do
2. No voiceover and the characters are what seem to be "cut outs".
3. The hidden objects scenes were REALLY easy and I played on Expert Mode
I'm sorry but this one was not for me...

I bought this game on the reviews I read and the premise it would be like the tv show. Except for the visuals of the players it was to obvious where and how to find clues.
Sorry, I would not recommend this game. I should have played for the trial hour and been through the entire game.

Does not do JUSTICE to the show. Soulless, mindless kids game.
