Well, I sure enjoyed these 5 cases....however, was anyone else as disappointed as I was in the "bonus's" awarded at the end of each case? What the heck were those

? Bummer! When I earn or win a prize, I would like it to be something of substance, like I would have been delighted with another short case to solve...how about you?
Love, Betty Lou

Betty Lou,

I agree. I was disappointed in the bonus but knew it would be what it was, since every CSI game has the same bonus. frown Who wants to see promos and pictures of a game that you just played? Not me! And why would the developer's think we do? duh I have to say, I enjoyed the previous games more than this one. wave

Hi guys...
I agree with Betty and all of you. It was very bad bonus material... I enjoy too the previous games more than this one.I think that the cases in this game were not so interesting and difficult as the others from the old games.

Cheers wave

Finished this and already into 3 Dimensions of Murder. This is my first foray into the CSI games and I really enjoyed Hard Evidence. My only complaint is that I wish there were more than 5 cases per game! Okay, actually another complaint, I wish it was a little more challenging. The only challenging thing really was being limited in movement and missing a few hotspots (especially in case 5).

I did learn something from Hard Evidence though which I had been wondering for awhile but never bothered to look up.

My DH is an identical twin and I had always assumed that since they share the same DNA, they would share the same fingerprints. Case 5 proved me wrong! smile

I loved this installment of the CSI series, but the 5th case had a crucial mistake in it's storyline which irked me.

Identical twins/triplets, etc. DO NOT have the same DNA. I know this for a fact because I am a Criminal Justice student and we covered DNA in one of our classes.

I don't think that's correct Patricia.
Click to reveal..
As far as I know, identical twins have identical DNA, unless there is the very rare mutation of the egg after the division. The difference between them is that it is expressed differently in the phenotypes (like fingerprints). Fraternal twins would have the same similarity of DNA as any other sibling though, not identical. I haven't looked at that stuff in years though, so if you have a source saying otherwise, I'd be really interested in hearing about it, if you felt like pming me

Patricia and nickie. This is fascinating. I did find this article from 2004.

Identical twins start off with the same dna but mutations can occur later on. Patricia, is this what you're referring to? Patricia, has the technology advanced in the past 3-4 years that it is easier to spot the mutations?

See this article: http://www.usatoday.com/tech/science/genetics/2004-09-01-dna-twins_x.htm

Can't remember which CSI it was, but one had bonuses of jigsaw puzzles which was fun. Agree the bonuses on Hard Evidence weren't worth working for.

Okay... I admit I was wrong.

I just went back through an old text book (yes I keep them) and found the statemet (paraphrasing):

Everyone has unique DNA, EXCEPT IDENTICAL TWINS... however, fraternal twins DO NOT have the same DNA.


Meanwhile, I contacted my professor and he replied with this answer:

With DNA technology changing, recently a question has arisen on this issue. Right now we are getting two different answers on this, but you are right, that is what I told you [twins DO NOT have the same DNA]. Now, I am not so sure. I have questioned a few others on this and the responses vary.


Also, I hated the bonus material! Did anyone get all 5 cases 100% to get the last bonus item on the table? I didn't get that, what was it?
