About the Game

The Sherlock Holmes series returns with this updated version of The Awakened, which brings a whole new dimension to the original title developed by Frogwares.

Keeping with the traditional Point & Click gameplay style of the original adventure games, The Awakened has been totally rethought, offering players a new third-person view while keeping the original first-person view available also.

The game puts the player into an investigation of the myth of Cthulhu - as imagined by author H.P. Lovecraft. Sherlock Holmes, assisted by the loyal Doctor Watson, investigates strange disappearances which seem related to the activity of a secret sect. The adventure begins in London, in the renowned Baker Street, taking us to investigate a disturbing psychiatric hospital near Bale, Switzerland, on to Louisiana and finally to Scotland.

Key Features

  • 2 points-of-view available at all times: new gameplay in 3rd person, giving a new dimension to the original game, or classic first- person point-of-view.
  • An original confrontation between the universe of Sherlock Holmes and the myth of Cthulhu - a fight between the rational and the supernatural.
  • Rich graphics, biting dialogue, disturbing characters and an excellent sound track create incredible turn of the century atmospheres.
  • Play as the famous detective Sherlock Holmes and his loyal friend Doctor Watson.
  • A new help system that shows the interactions available (objects and actions).
  • Interact with more than 60 characters in 5 disturbing universes.
  • Use and combine more than 50 objects, and discover hundreds of clues and documents to carry out the investigation to its final outcome.

    • OS: Windows XP, XP64
    • Processor: 1.3 Ghz

This pains me so much to do this but this game is so ♥♥♥♥, it makes Ride to Hell Retrobation(i know i spelt it wrong) look decent. This game gets a 3.5 out of 10. That's cause it's a point and click, but you have a first person perpective option. WHY THE HELL YOU WOULD CHANGE SOMETHING I LOVED ABOUT THIS GAME INTO PURE MOLTEN HATE. Also they added people walking around on the streets now. I DON'T WANT THAT. I LOVED NOT SEEING ANYONE. IT MADE ME ♥♥♥♥ MYSELF MANY O' TIMES. I hate this game now. I liked it before. If you like first person puzzle games that are so hard, go get it I guess. If you like point and click, go ♥♥♥♥ing nuts with this seires.

Game is bugged where at the point it won't let you finish. Making multiple saves before the bug doesn't seem to help at all.

If you are a Sherlock Holmes junky like me, go ahead and buy it for giggles. Otherwise this game was heavy on gore and game mechanics, not so much with story. Watson is mostly stupid in this game, unlike the originals, and follows you around and gets in your way. It is nice to vent your frustrations on him, but they could have done without him entirely. It's not really a whodunit game where you are shocked at the end, like the original stories, it's more like "oh there is a guy who is the perpetrator, lets solve more annoying puzzles and search for rediculously small hints." The puzzles themselves didn't really make you think hard, it just kinda made you feel stupid. XD The difficulty of this game was moderate to hard, but it comes with a hint system that was built in, which is a pro. The voice acting for Sherlock is nice as well, along with his lovely top hat he wears on occation... But overall the game just sucks. Don't waste the money, and more importantly, the time on it.

I've been enjoying the modern reimaginings of Sherlock on CBS (Elementary) and the even better BBC series. So, when the Sherlock collection went on sale on Steam, I decided to give it a try. Of course, this game portrays the original Sherlock Holmes.

This is mostly typical point-and-click adventure fare and puzzles, with a little more than the usual pixel hunting due to the forensic nature of the story. For a game created in 2006 and then "remastered" in 2008, the production values are low, but the voice acting is pretty good. There are a few brain teasers thrown in, which can be difficult, but there is a built-in hint system. The game requires a little bit of deductive reasoning, but it falls short of making you feel like Sherlock. All too often, you gather all the evidence only to have Holmes pull it all together in a cut scene. The story is kinda slow, but it comes together nicely in the end. All in all, not a bad game, but not great either.
