Acerca de este juego

La saga Sherlock Holmes regresa con una nueva y mejorada versión de The Awakened, la cual brinda una nueva dimensión al titulo originalmente desarrollado por Frogwares.
Continuando con el tradicional estilo "Point & Click" de los juegos de aventura originales, The Awakened ha sido completamente reimaginado ofreciendo a los jugadores un nuevo punto de vista en tercera persona, sin dejar de lado la opción de volver al clásico estilo en primera persona.
El juego pone al jugador en una investigación sobre el mito de Cthulhu tal y como fue imaginado por el autor H.P. Lovecraft. Sherlock Holmes, con la ayuda del leal Doctor Watson, investiga unas extrañas desapariciones que parecen estar relacionadas con la actividad de una secta secreta. La aventura comienza en Londres, en la renombrada calle Baker, que nos lleva a investigar un inquietante hospital psiquiátrico cerca de Bale, Suiza, pasando por Luisiana y finalmente Escocia.
Características Principales
  • 2 puntos de vista disponibles en cualquier momento: un nuevo modo de juego en Tercera Persona que añade una nueva perspectiva al juego original o el clásico modo en Primera Persona.
  • Una original confrontación entre el universo de Sherlock Holmes y el mito de Cthulhu - una lucha entre lo racional y lo sobrenatural.
  • Gráficos enriquecidos, diálogo punzante, inquietantes personajes y una excelente banda sonora que crean una increíbles atmósfera nunca vista anteriormente.
  • Juega en el papel del famoso detective Sherlock Holmes y su leal amigo el Doctor Watson.
  • Un nuevo sistema de ayuda que muestra las interacciones disponibles (objetos y acciones).
  • Interactúa con más de 60 personajes en 5 inquietantes universos.
  • Usa y combina más de 50 objetos y descubre cientos de documentos para llevar a cabo la investigación hasta el final.

Requisitos del sistema

    • SO: Windows XP / XP64
    • Procesador: 1.3 GHz
    • Memoria: 512 MB de RAM
    • Gráficos: 32 MB

I purchased the Sherlock Holmes collection and this was the first game of the series before the recent ones that installed properly and played fine. It's a good version of the original that now gives you the option to play in third person mode, although I find the original first person mode much better. Granted the graphics aren't as good, but it still provides a challenge. This is a good game to get people started into the fantastic Sherlock Holmes series, especially if they like games that require patience rather than just shooting everything in sight.

The third of the Frogware Sherlock Holmes games is by far the best of the bunch (out of the three) and considering it was released in 2006, graphically, it holds up reasonably well.

The adventure contains a great plot that takes you to numerous locations, fantastic voice acting (especially from Holmes and Watson) and a very handy built in hint system for when you get stuck, and you WILL get stuck as a couple of the puzzles are (at least I thought so) incredibly hard.

One annoyance is when you know what you want to do next, but the game won't let you because you have not done things in the “correct order” you might want to unlock a door with a key, only to be told that it cannot be done, yet once you talk to somebody and they suggest using the key on the door, magically it now works. It's not a game breaker, but it can get frustrating at times.

If you are looking to step into the shoes of Sherlock, and prefer the classic tones of Basil Rathbone or Jeremy Brett, this is the game you are looking for!

It wouldn't work. No matter what we did to try an fix it it would not run. Spent 2 hours reading guides for the error that popped up and nothing. The worse part is, is that I bought it with all the other Sherlock games so no refund all because Jack the Ripper worked.

Well, this game, and series, got dark really fast.

Sherlock Holmes investigates the disappearance of some young men and travels to near and faraway places to find out what happened to them.

Beware of blood and gore. This is atually the atmosphere of HP Lovecraft starring in Sherlock Holmes and some stuff gets really dark, bloody and spooky. Not recommended for children.

The game looks pretty good. The graphics and animations has again improved since the last game, and some minor flaws in animations and light settings is the only things to complain about there, as long as you keep in mind that it's not the newest of games.

The options also lets you choose between third and first person mode, which is very nice, and you can change between mode with the push of a button. Personally I preferred first person as it just felt smoother and easier to move around with.

The game did bug out on me once and only once, so make sure you save the game as you progress.

This game does not have a failstate, so no matter what you do get to the end. You can really not do anything wrong as Sherlock will not leave areas before he has done all he needs to do and will tell you so. The game also has a built in guide that goes in steps from slightly nudging you in the right directions, to telling you the spefics of the puzzle/room you are in, so you should never be stuck.

No badges or achievements here either, so you can safely spam the hint button without fear of losing achievements. No real replay value, as nothing can change from each playthrough, but definitely worth playing through that once.

Frogware's Sherlock Holmes series is one of my favorite adventure game series. The first few games had a rough start and varied in quality, but with The Awakened they started a trend of making great original stories with interesting crossovers - in this case, the game is a crossover of Sherlock Holmes and the Cthulhu mythos. As with the rest of Frogware's later games you can choose to play the game in first person, which I always appreciate in games. The puzzles aren't necessarily hard, but there are points where they require knowledge you might not have necessarily found before you're expected to answer, like one puzzle that requires you to know that the eidelweiss is a national symbol of Switzerland. Even though this edition of the game was released later in the series, it is still a remastering of one of their earlier games, so the animations and voice acting for secondary characters aren't always that great, but if you're a fan of Sherlock Holmes I'd still recommend giving it a try, especially considering that the full collection tends to go on sale for around $10.

As a Sherlock Holmes fan, I really enjoy a game that makes you thinks through the clues and information you gather to make deductions and solve this case.

I recommend this game--but with a few caveats. It's a treat to see Sherlock Holmes in the Lovecraftian universe, but the game does show its age a bit.

Graphics
The graphics are at times good, and at times awful. The scenes in New Orleans, for example, were quite nice to look at and the models reasonably complex. However, the textures aren't great close-up and there are some scenes that simply lack the quality of other adventure games, even older ones. Compare The Awakened to Syberia--the developers of Syberia created a masterpiece with the technology available which still holds up to this day. Playing The Awakened, I got the impression that Frogwares didn't really spent that much time on it, and didn't utilise the game engine quite as well.

The character models are nice to look at and there's resonable variation. The animations aren't great, with repetitive and quite awful movements and characters frequently seem to be interacting with invisible objects.

Audio
The music in this game is good, as is the general soundscape. However the voice acting leaves a bit to be desired. Holmes in particular sounds quite awful, although Watson is quite good. The voices frequently don't match up with the movement of the lips.

Gameplay
It's quite fun! The puzzles are reasonably challenging and the pace is quite good. I could have wished for bigger worlds and more interactions, but all in all it was quite good.

Plot
Hmm. It's difficult to really put into words. This was... a decent effort at capturing both the Sherlock Holmes and Lovecraftian Mythos worlds--there are better efforts in the literary sphere, with books such as All Consuming Fire which also ties in Doctor Who. The plot meandered a little, and at certain points didn't appear to make sense.

That said, it's still quite interesting and at times quite grisly. The end was good (but could have been better) and the epilogue was a little confusing in one major point, which I won't give away here.

Overall
This is a solid game, but I get the impression a lot more effort could have gone into making it an absolutely amazing game. I recommend you pick it up during a Steam sale and play it through when you're home sick and can't be bothered watching Netflix (which is what I did!).

Sherlock Holmes is one of the most well known detectives. So many movies, TV shows and games are based on the adventures of Sherlock Holmes and his trusted companion Dr. Watson. But will Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened will be a game Sherlock Holmes fans Want to play ?

Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened is a bit of a departure from the more kid friendly games and what I mean by that is that the previous Sherlock Holmes games were pretty tame compared to this or even the later games in the series.

Story wise this is an interesting title. Sherlock Holmes has to solve a supernatural case which involves the legendary Cthulhu created by H.P. Lovecraft. Some illegal immigrants go missing and soon wind up dead in crime scenes that look like ritualistic sacrifices and it's up to you to solve the mystery.

As I stated before this is a departure from the more teen friendly games. This game has this unsettling mood. The atmosphere in every location feels great even though the graphics don't look that good.

Locations range from Asylums, to swamps in New Orleans and abandoned light houses and you can explore everything at your own pace and there is a lot of stuff to find.

Now originally this game only had the first person mode, but the remastered edition has an added third person point and click mode that helps out in some locations which have bad textures (I'll get to that in a moment)

Graphics look outdated. Some of the items you need to pick up blend in with the environment. Some of the lip syncing is just hilarious when the character models look like dead people. Some of the environments looks empty, but that's only for a second.

Now I want to cover the most important aspect of a Sherlock Holmes game and that's the puzzles. After playing Sherlock Holmes Mystery of the Silver Earring I was put off with the illogical puzzles. This time I was surprised with how smart the puzzles actually were. Now there was some hard puzzles and some of them are kind of stupid, but mostly really smart and well thought out puzzles.

Voice acting ranges from well done to incredibly horrible. Some of the voice acting is just incredibly funny. When they talk about serious situations all I did was smile at the voice acting.

If you do plan on playing the game I do recommend saving quite frequently and backing up your save file, cause there is a bug where you can lose your save file. Apart from that there's not many other bugs.

The game took me 8 hours to finish and apart from the one run of the game you will do, there's not much replay value as nothing really changes.

In the end I have to say I loved my time with Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened and I might say it's the best Sherlock Holmes game I've played to date. The interesting story and puzzles are great in this game, because I felt they were the biggest flaw in The Mystery of the Silver Earring. If you like Adventure games, Sherlock Holmes and you like the work of H.P. Lovecraft you will love this game.

Final Rating:
8/10 - Worth to consider buying 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.

I started Frogware's Sherlock Holmes series in chronological order of the games. Currently, this is my favorite Sherlock Holmes game. I have always been a fan of H.P. Lovecraft in addition to Sherlock Holmes. The only way to make it even better is to include H. G. Wells to the mix, but I digress. This game set the standard of how the rest of the Sherlock Holmes Adventure Games are presented and produced. The story walks a fine line between the two worlds of H.P. Lovecraft and Sherlock Holmes and surprisingly the resolution is satisfy for both worlds. The adventure felt like Sherlock Holmes was on the case while the Lovecraftian themes never felt like a gimic. When I finished I sat back and pondered if the Lovecraftian themes were real or not; which is how Lovecraft should make the reader, or in this case the player, feel.

This is also the fist Sherlock Holmes game where I took extensive notes with a pen and paper. I am not saying that the game presents a bad summary of the clues or even that you need to take physical notes, but I found that it was more enjoyable when I did. I never felt, atleast to my memory, that the game was unfair with its puzzles or logic.

Furthermore, refrences will appear from this game to the next game in the series, Sherlock Holmes - Nemisis. So to fulfill that experiance you should probably play this one.

In summary: This game does a fantastic job combining H.P Lovecraft and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's worlds. This is a rare game which uses Lovecraft correctly, which will please any Lovecraft fans. Buy this game if you are a fan of either litature. I also suggest this game to individuals who would like to try Frogware's Sherlock Holmes Adventure series but are not sure which game to start with. This game is a great Point and Click game with a strong atmosphere. I at this time of writing palyed this game for 9 hours, and after writing this review I want to replay this game from the beginning.

The setup sounds great, Holmes & Watson inexplicably drawn into a world of fantasy horror... Except the follow-through is a boring and groan inducing embarrassment. It has little to do with either the works of Conan Doyle or Lovecraft and the tonally devoid hot mess that follows is evident of that. Looking at it simply as a game it's a frustrating series of clumsy and broken puzzle mechanics; if you've come for a narrative or engrossing world though then you're really in trouble. The plot attempts to string together kidnappings in England, an asylum in Switzerland, a swamp in New Orleans and finally a lighthouse in Scotland using some vague Cthulhu cult to no definable end. It's all so disjointed you realize about halfway through that none of the developers actually read any of Lovecraft's stories. Professor Sullivan has a blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo but nowhere in the narrative is Innsmouth (home to The Esoteric Order Of Dagon) or any of the creatures of Lovecraft's mythos. Cthulhu himself is never even mentioned by name! So what you're left with is less a sect and more a social club that stuff dead people full of squid and call it a herald of the apocalypse. It's also really, really ♥♥♥♥ing stupid. It doesn't work as a mystery, it doesn't work as fantasy horror, and it just plain doesn't work as a game.

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.
