There are perhaps more flaws to this game than it can get away with. However, the areas in which it excels are the most important aspects of a puzzle game such as this, so I'm inclined to give this a thumbs up overall. Bear in mind though, that this game is probably not everyone's cup of tea, depending on how sensitive you are to annoying details and minor flaws.

Pros:

- The plot is surprising and genuinely intriguing, and keeps you wanting to find out where your next clue leads you.
- The puzzles are sufficiently varied and well-made, and not too easy to solve.
- The atmosphere fits the game and the story perfectly, including some very good voice-work.

Cons:

- While the plot is great, it also contains quite a few loose ends and logical shortcomings. Some of the deductions of Mr. Holmes are so far-fetched you've got to wonder if he's high.
- Some of the puzzles are overly difficult, and most of them has only rudimentary instructions which are of very little help as to what you're actually supposed to do.
- The gameplay is as linear as it gets, and consequently the game has absolutely zero replay-value.
- Animations and lip-sync are far below par. There is also weirdly little visual difference between gameplay and cinematics, which makes you wonder why they bothered.
- Considering the low-level graphics and effects, the game still manages to take up nearly 10 GB of space.
- Running is only marginally faster than walking, which makes some sections fairly tedious.

Story was thrilling. Puzzles tested your brains to the end. Switching between Point & Click to Third-Person and First Person was great. One word. Amazing. 9.5/10. Totally worth the $20 even though i got it for $5

Playing this game was a fun, but also sometimes boring experience.
The PRO:
-great story, mystery and plot twist
-interesting puzzles
-captivating story telling from Dr. Watson's points of view
-really enjoyed the ending scene. i rarely look at credits, but this time, it kind of had a mysterious, old london darkish vibe

The CON:
-annoying movement mechanism. you just bump around in every room/yard pressing SPACE to look for clues.
-somewhat poor graphics, but still, for a game on sale, i can't complain.
-not much of an open world. you just have a single path to follow to finish. no decisions, no consequences.
-children at the beginning look just awful. when i saw them first, i almost regreted buying the game.
-you don't feel like solving a mystery, you just click where the devs want you to. no much option there

Overall, i enjoyed this game as it was quite an interesting and mysterious story. It really kept me going and pondering as to what happens next and how does it all unfold. I hope there will be a sequel with more options and better graphics.
If you see this game on sale and enjoy puzzle games, grab it, otherwise keep looking (doesn't look up for the full price)! awesome time passer and mind exercise.

This game looks and feels solid. It can be frustrating at times when you cant connect the dots but the if you take too long on a puzzle it will give you the choice of skipping it because... you suck. And the game will let you know when you are correct which sounds like cheating but you will be thanking God at times for that little saving grace.

The voice acting is also solid but none of the words matches the characters mouth movements.

What a game!
I am a great Sherlock Holmes fan, and this game certainly delivers, to hardcore fans and to a person new to the Sherlock Holmes books, movies and games.
The game puts you right in the deep end with some explaining, it turns into a great adventure and you actually start to feel that you are investigating a dark case with the great detecive himself.
Occassianly the game does nothing to help you in puzzles and you may find yourself consulting the internet, as I did a few times.
The game delivers well, the costumes and detail is excellent but I get some audio sync issues.
The Testament of Sherlock Holmes is the perfect game for old and new fans alike. I high recommend it and many hours of fun are expected.

Very good game constructed with a great love for the books. While they sometimes seem unnecessary (schoolroom) the puzzles are always logical. Good story. My favourites were the deduction chains which sadly were only part of the game in the beginning and made way for more "classic" puzzles later. Recommend playing if a fan of adventures or Sherlock Holmes.

Great game, even though I had to jump through hoops to actually get it to run.
Once I actually started playing, I was pleasantly surprised with how enjoyable it was. It's always hard to find a good "mystery" game that isn't just a seek-and-find snoozefest, and I enjoyed this game immensely!
Controls can be a little frustrating sometimes, but the game is really more about the plot and the investigation than anything else, so it wasn't a huge issue by any means.

Get it on sale, because as fun as it is, it just isn't worth $20 - it didn't last very long and there isn't a lot of replay value. Don't let the "~20 hrs on record" fool you - most of that is from when I accidently left the game running overnight. You're looking at around 10-13 hours of gameplay, depending on how thorough you are in each map.

A very good and a unfortunately overlooked game. Fun and challenging puzzles mixed with nice story and fun voiceacting. And fear none, you can skip the puzzles after trying for a while if you wish. Only minus can be given to some weird animations and the overall point and click style of the games progression. But should you love point and clicks with modern twist, adventures, good story and the license intrests you, this is definately worth chceking out. Don't let the metascore fool you.

I'll get straight to the point:

The story is AMAZING! A very complex and well written one that makes you want to know every detail and spend a lot of time to pull things together to find the truth behing the dark side of sherlock holmes himself.

The Puzzles are fantastic! They will challenge your logic and test you IQ! :P

The only problem lies in the gameplay. or better say, in the controls which is a little annoying but you'll get used to it as you progress through the game.

The Testament of Sherlock Holmes is A unique game in the adventure genre and if you are a fan of this famous detective, then you should try it for SURE.

Minor technical issues aside, this game was amazing. While I haven't played any of the other Sherlock games yet, so I don't have a benchmark to compare it to, I very much enjoyed the storyline and multiple mind-blowing plot twists, the varied puzzles and leaps of deduction, voice acting and the various personalities of the characters, and the occasional moments of poignancy, introspection and humour.

Progression was occasionally blocked because it wasn't obvious there was something up in a tree to click on or that you could ascend a stage using boxes, and I'd wander around for an hour being puzzled, but otherwise it was smooth and flowed well.

Also, creepy kids! But they tied that in at the end fairly well too.
