A really fun cluedo type escape room!

Story - there's been a shooting in a mafia club by 2 shooters (1 escaped and 1 dead) everyone in the club was dead. There was 11 possible suspect you have 60 mins to find out who is the 2 killers.

Theming - I quite like the theming as you're in a mafia club but it was a little bit empty to make it look like a proper club. It was every clean and I love the music.

Puzzle - to find out information about each victim/suspect are lock in evidence box with a padlock which will help you to find out what happen to that individual. They were some creative puzzles that I really enjoy.

Clue system - via walkie talkie 

Positive - I really enjoy the puzzle (they weren't that easy) some of most creative detective puzzle I've seen. The music/theming was great and the GM was in character which make our experiences alot better.

Negative - the information about each suspect was lacking, quite empty room and the audio was a little bit too quiet.

Overall experience - I really enjoyed this room, for some reason  we struggle during the first 20 mins once we knew what we was doing then we was finish puzzle faster. I highly recommend to give this room a go bring at least 4 players.

On starting the second play at home CSI game from The Panic Room, I assumed it would be very similar to the first - but no, or at least not exactly. The platform used to deliver the game is the same, of course - the same system of solve a puzzle, enter a code to progress to the next step of information and the next puzzle. It also has in common that much of the clue information you're presented with is only used later on, for the final resolution of the murder mystery. However, although in both ...
With lots of evidence to work through, decent puzzles, and a solid ending; if you want a game that will make you feel like a detective, then this game is a good shout.
A bit run down in places and we think it used to do more than it currently does, CSI will keep you busy and isn’t a bad way to spend your hour, but one puzzle needs ‘fixing’
When all is said and done, its safe to say we loved this game. Its a very well rounded, well produced online game, with stacks of strong puzzles and a great story line. A great game for enthusiasts and new comers alike, this online experience certainly put the bullet in our gun!
