Ubisoft and CBS Consumer Products are developing an all-new video game based on the top-rated drama series, NCIS. The game will be available worldwide for PS3, Xbox 360, Wii and PC this fall. For the first time ever, the world of the NCIS TV drama series comes to life on home gaming consoles and Windows PC. Fans can play as their favorite characters from NCIS and travel around the world in search of clues to solve complex murder, espionage and terrorist cases. The game features four original cases written and developed with the writers of the hit TV show. So on the surface I’m excited because the last game like this that Ubisoft did which was CSI: Fatal Conspiracy was very good from a depth of story standpoint and thoroughness that it took to solve cases. Unfortunately, from a graphical presentation standpoint the game looked like something off of the original PlayStation. As I said the since the story is written by the actual writers of the shows there isn’t a concern as to whether the story will be good but in the past giving games like this awesome graphics has been the last thing on their list so I wouldn’t expect much there. From the trailer they appear to be better than Fatal Conspiracy but will be decent at best.
