Over dit spel

De Sherlock Holmes serie komt terug met een nieuwe versie van The Awakened, die een hele nieuwe dimensie toevoegt aan de originele titel van Frogwares.

Het spel blijft trouw aan de traditionele wijs-en-klik spelervaring van de originele avontuur spellen, maar tegelijkertijd is over The Awakened totaal overnieuw nagedacht, zo kun je in de derde persoon spelen maar ook nog in de eerste persoon.

In het spel gaat de speler de mythe van Cthulhu onderzoeken - zoals verzonnen door de schrijver H.P. Lovecraft. Sherlock Holmes, geassisteerd door de trouwe Doctor Watson, onderzoekt de rare verdwijningen die te maken lijken te hebben met de activiteiten van een geheime sekte. Het avontuur begint in London, in de bekende Baker Street, neemt ons mee om een verontrustende psychiatrisch ziekenhuis in de buurt van Bale te onderzoeken, neemt ons mee naar Zwitserland, door naar Louisiana en uiteindelijk naar Schotland.

Belangrijke functies

  • Altijd 2 perspectieven beschikbaar: nieuwe spelervaring in de derde persoon, die een nieuwe dimensie geeft aan het originele spel, of het klassieke perspectief in de eerste persoon.
  • Een originele confrontatie tussen het universum van Sherlock Holmes en de mythe van Cthulhu - een gevecht tussen het rationele en het bovennatuurlijke.
  • Mooie beelden, bijtende dialogen, verontrustende personages en geweldige muziek zorgen voor een ongelofelijke eeuwwisseling atmosfeer.
  • Speel als de beroemde detective Sherlock Holmes en zijn trouwe vriend Doctor Watson.
  • Een nieuw help systeem dat de mogelijke interacties laat zien (voorwerpen en acties).
  • Leg contact met meer dan 60 personages in 5 verontrustende universa.
  • Gebruik en combineer meer dan 50 voorwerpen, en ontdek honderden aanwijzingen en documenten die je leiden tot de uiteindelijke uitkomst van het onderzoek.

If you're a fan of Lovecraft and a fan of Doyle's Holms, than this is the game for you. Just don't expect a masterwork.

Adventure-wise, the game is not that engaging. The puzzles are either obvious and straightforward, or a devil to solve. But on the rare occasions when the balance is struck, the game really flows nicely. In all other cases, there is quite a comprehensive in-game hint system/walkthrough, that only very rarely doesn't provide adequate answer.

But the reason I love this game is the mashup with Cthulhu mythos. While the delivery is a bit ham-handed and does not depict properly the creeping madness and true horror of Lovecraft, visual elements at the least finally bring to life some of the horrific scenes of the Mythos. There are so few games which have actually allowed us to take a walk through this setting, that it is worth playing Sherlock Holms: The Awakened just for this aspect.

The Awakened is a great starting point for players new to the Holmes series. In this installment, the balance between puzzles, dialogue and hunting for clues has been perfected, and the new in-game hint system *usually* has the answers if you're stuck. There's been a pretty good graphical update, and the addition of the first person camera angle has totally removed the previous games' problems of pixel hunting and difficult controls. I personally encountered no technical problems playing on Windows 8.1.

If you're a fan of the classic Sherlock Holmes, Awakened may not be for you. The story has a lot of paranormal elements, which may be a turn off for some players. However, I am typically not a fan of paranormal mysteries and I was still able to enjoy the game. Each location has a totally different atmosphere, so in a way there's something for everyone. The mystery is interesting and intriguing without being convoluted, and at around 8 hours the length feels just right.

This game is awseome. I played it in first person mode which is a great time saving rather than clicking for Holmes to move. Problem is I just finished Far Cry the day before and I was always clicking the left mouse button to shoot people for the first few minutes. Still a great game and a bit messed up (story wise).

This game is a bit of a departure from typical Holmes, as it mixes in a Lovecraftian element that gives the story an unearthly taste. I don't have a problem with that, but if you're not really a fan of sort of "out there" paranormal storie, you might not appreciate this game. However, even if you're not a Lovecraft fan, you might be engaged enough with the story to enjoy this too.

Gameplay is pretty standard pointy-clicky fare. As in most of these styles of game, the puzzles range from very basic to ridiculously difficult, but thankfully there is an in-game hint system that does help a lot to keep frustration to a minimum. The only truly difficult part I found was a point when you're in a dark area with a lantern and must find all the clues to progress; the last "piece" was very difficult to locate in the dark.

For mystery/detective fans who also are fans of Agatha Christie, there is a delightful "easter egg" partway through the game. As a Christie and Doyle fan, I squealed like a wee happy baby. I won't ruin it here, just keep your eyes and ears open for it. :D

My single real complaint (and it's just a nitpick really) is with the sound; there's a point where there are a lot of people using alert/warning whistles and they were piercingly loud (and over and over and over again, ouch my head). I didn't even have the sound up that loud but I thought my eardrums were going to rupture. Just a minor thing to keep in mind; you may want to keep the volume lower or even off when you hit that section.

So go grab the Sherlock Holmes Collection where you can get all six of the games at once and save a good bit of money. They're definitely worth it for fans of Doyle's Holmes.

Just finished this game in about 11 hours. It is not that bad actually. The puzzles can be though but there is a very good hint system that will help you for sure if you get stuck. So no need to go online and search for a walktrough. The graphics are not that bad either but do not expect superb graphics. For the rest it is a real Sherlock Holmes story. I did not really like the story a lot but thats because I did not understand everything and their connection with eachother. But that's probably because I am Belgian and speak Dutch. Other then that it is really fun to play. I had a problem with mouse controls sometimes: if I sometimes tried to turn around the movement would be really slow even impossible to turn around. I do not think that my game rig is to slow to play this game. I have GTX680, 8 gb ram and intel i5 3.3 ghz processor. That was really not good cause it got stuck in that mode from time to time which made it necessary to reboot the game. You can play it in first person orpoint and click view. I prefered the FP view. You have the ability to run but that can be still slow. Not that it is very slow but still. I give this game a 7/10. If you want to be a detective, like Sherlock Holmes, you could get this game. I had fun with it and I do not regret buying it. I would wait untill it is in sale. It's priced at 9.99 and that's not a bad price but if you can get it in sale wait untill then.
