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.

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.

A good game, some of the puzzles are tough but the story content is rewarding. It's fun to play as Holmes in a Lovecraftian story,

Good story for Lovecraft fans and Sherlock Holmes fans alike. The puzzles aren't too hard but a few suffer from "adventure game logic" as I like to call it. Overall a good purchase.

THIS GAME IS HORRID! Seriously, the story line in confusing and they expect us to be sherlock and somehow know where to spam click to find things! All in all, it is the worst sherlock game ever made, period.
