In NCIS: Hidden Crimes, players take on the role of agents and team up with the cast of the hit TV series to investigate a variety of different cases. This means playing through a range of puzzles including searching crime scenes, tracking targets, analysing evidence and more. Fans of the show will enjoy working alongside their favourite characters to solve these challenges.
A range of crimefighting tools
Puzzle gameplay in NCIS: Hidden Crimes is pleasingly varied. In addition to the traditional hidden-object puzzles, in which you click on objects in a crime scene to find clues, there are also surveillance missions in which you have to follow a moving target with a drone, assembly puzzles in which you piece items back together, microscope puzzles in which you have to identify particular types of evidence and more. The look and feel of the show is also well-executed. The only letdown, as with most games in this genre, is the artificial delay between missions, used to help sell energy boosts from in-app purchases.
Cracking the case
If you're a fan of the show and of puzzle mystery games, you'll enjoy NCIS: Hidden Crimes. Its energy economy makes it more of a game to pick up and play every now and again than one to power straight through, however.
