Ubisoft has signed up to produce another game based on CBS's popular modern-day version of Quincy.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Deadly Intent will see you solving murders alongside the characters from season nine of the TV show. So that means Ray Langston and Riley Adams, but probably not Warwick (RIP we miss you you were the fittest one XXX). There are five cases to investigate, all devised with the help of the TV programme's writers.

For the first time you'll be able to help other detectives out and gain their respect. You'll get to perform all the tasks of a CSI, just like on the TV show - collecting evidence at the crime scene, unveiling hidden clues, moving torches very slowly around the inside of cars for hours on end and looking at more blood and semen than you could ever dream of.

You'll also get to interview witnesses and suspects and there's an improved interrogation system, though if you've seen more than two episodes of the TV show you'll know it's always the second person you talk to. Plus you'll analyse evidence using the latest technology, i.e. putting little test tubes in the spinny machine and dipping cotton buds in blood and semen.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Deadly Intent: Too Many Colons will be released for PC, Wii, DS and Xbox 360 this autumn. Nope, there's no mention of a PS3 version. The Nintendo DS game will feature "additional bizarre cases" and "an enhanced questioning system", plus a unique storyline that links all the cases together. It'll make you "feel like a real CSI character", so like you're an ex-stripper who's obsessed with moths and addicted to gambling and gets buried alive with a load of red ants.
