Or, try Virtual Crime Scene Investigation where your team is an elite CSI unit tasked with sorting through the evidence to figure out who committed the crime, how they did it, and why. Interrogate suspects, compare fingerprints, read through forensic reports, and enter our state-of-the-art virtual crime scene to look for clues. Spooky right?
