As with the previous CSI games, there are five cases to work on. However, the game has taken a drastic graphical change, opting for a stylised 2D cartoon look, instead of the rendered 3D graphics of previous games. The game will allow you to control a CSI and solve cases, collect evidence and solve puzzles.
CSI: NY requires at least a Radeon 9200 Series or GeForce FX 5200 to meet recommended requirements running on high graphics setting, with 1080p resolution. This hardware should achieve 60FPS. Also your PC needs 1 GB RAM to meet the rec specs and run at 60 frames. You will require a DirectX 9 GPU.
