CSI: Deadly Intent is a computer game based on the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation television series. It's the seventh CSI game released, including CSI: Miami and CSI: NY. It was released for Microsoft Windows on October 20, 2009,[1] and for Xbox 360, Nintendo DS and Wii on October 27, 2009.[2][3][4]

The game corresponds with the 9th season of the television series and includes the characters of Raymond Langston and Riley Adams.[5]

The Nintendo DS version of this game is called CSI: Deadly Intent - The Hidden Cases and was developed by Other Ocean.[3] It includes four original cases created exclusively for that platform.[6]

The Cases[edit]

Case 1: Broken Hearted[edit]

In case 1, a bride named Lynn Bowder has been murdered in a hotel room. You work with Nick Stokes. The evidence leads to a Vegas visitor named Airam Dominguez, the night manager of the hotel, Charles Steer, and the victim's old friend, Kathy Burd.

Case 2: Coulda Been A Contender[edit]

A referee named Rick Shimada was found dead in the fighting ring. You work with Greg Sanders in this case. The evidence points to an angry fighter named Hank Hackett, a mysterious ring girl named Tina Allens, and the league owner, Horace Willingham. Suspect Hank Hackett is murdered halfway through the case, making this a double homicide.

Case 3: Last Gasp[edit]

A female TV host named Clarinda Jackson was found drowned to death in a rehab center spa. You work with Dr. Raymond Langston in this case. The evidence leads to the victim's lover, Steven Thompson, her husband, Ernest Goldwasser and a TV rival named Jack Shell.

Case 4: Extinguished[edit]

A famous fire-breather named Andrew Levesque was found dead. You work with Riley Adams. In the autopsy the victim was already dying of cancer and it seems the victim was abusive and violent. The evidence leads to the victim's landlord and doctor, Vincente Manoto, his wife, Ardell Levesque and his 18-year-old stepson, Lyle Fitzer.

Case 5: Crime Scene Impersonator[edit]

A female impersonator named Wallance Bieganowski under alias of Miss A was found dead in a nightclub. You work with Catherine Willows in this last case. The victim was identified as a superstar but other identification turns to out to be the victim's friend and manager. This murder was staged like a serial killer from 1975. This killer was known as the Barbor Street Boozer. He got this name because he tied his victims down and poured whiskey down their throats until they died of alcohol poisoning. The evidence leads to the superstar known as Marcelle (real name: Floyd Collister), a homeless man named Gary Beaumont, and the detective that worked the case back in 1975, Lieutenant Juarice Briggs. At the end of a case you solve a celebrity murder and a cold case.
