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.

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.


- 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.


- 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.

I think the 73 Metascore this time is right, TToSH is a good adventure game but I don't think good enough to reach a full 8 mark. Why? Because opposed to nice graphics and well built environments, some interesting gameplay ideas, three different control interfaces and a lengthy story, the player has to deal with rather inexpressive characters, subpar voice acting and animations, some logical puzzles put there only to extend longevity, a pair of little nasty bugs and an unreal and intricate but never clear story that leaves you powerless and confused even when Sherlock expresses his ingeniuos deductions/intentions.

I always loved adventure games, The Case of the Serrated Scalpel from the Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes series back in 1992 is still one of my favorite exponents of the genre, and I think Frogwares are on the right track to build a worthy successor to that perfect mix of realism and atmosphere. Crimes and Punishments is out at the end of the month and I feel good vibrations about it!

Recommended to adventure and Sherlock fans, and maybe also to newcomers who would like a not too difficult game to begin their journey from the best game of this developer's prodution.

A+. Got this game on a $5 steam sale, and it was worth way more than that. It provided me with 10 hours of solid explorative gameplay.. Definitely the best point and click adventure game I've played in years. Being able to swap from the traditional bird's eye view to first person added a whole new experience to the game as well.

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

The Testament of Sherlock Holmes. What is there to say that hasen't already been said? It's a master piece. A master piece whit one of the best stories in recent video games. I bought it on sale, for about 4,99. It's worth even spending 19,99 on it. Fantastic gameplay and amazing puzzels, that actually needs little brain to solve. I recomend this highly too anybody who likes a story oriented puzzle game. 10/10

Frogwares knows how to make a good adventure game. That they do it with Sherlock Holmes is awesome. I like how the puzzles aren't mind numbing and nonsensicle but can actually be solved by mere mortals. The music kind of reminded me of the composer for that game Gray Matter, both of which were memorable. Great voice acting too. Could use some optimization work but, whateves put the money in animation and other things I'm fine with that :D Great Game!

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.

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.

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.

Good Point&Click 3D Adventure game.
Typical Point & Click Adventure game but, in a real 3D environment.
You can manage your characters in third or first person and, the story needs you to change the character to accomplish certain "simultaneus" tasks.
Story is good enough, with some good twists . Interesting. Captives your attention.
There are some easy puzzles but, some are really challenging but, at least, all them are logical.
Game lenght is ok. Not so short as most of Adventure games.
Graphics are a tad odd and animations a bit robotics (characters' movements).
Game system is good and easy to learn but, hotspots are somewhat difficult to focus with the Xbox 360 gamepad.
Overall, good game.

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.

I love Sherlock Holmes. I have read the stories over and over since I was a kid. I've watched the old Basil Rathbone films, and the British Sherlock and American Elementary. Enjoyed all of these adaptations, as each has something unique to offer. So of course I was super excited to play a game based on the famous detective.

Then I read the reviews. And got less excited. Waited for it to go on sale, thought I'd try it out despite the criticisms. But I should have listened.

Full disclosure: I haven't finished the game yet. Not sure if I ever will, because I'm already sick of it.

The Bad:

Oh my god the dialogue animations. It's so awful, it completely distracts you from what the character is saying. The opening cutscene with the little kids is the worst; it's almost a joke. It doesn't help that the children look like terrifying soul-less ventriloquist dummies.

Looking for clues doesn't really feel like looking for clues. It feels like wandering around until your cursor turns into a magnifying glass. Which is exactly what it is. No brain activity required.

Sherlock doesn't really feel like Sherlock. I think this was deliberate on the part of the game creators; this is supposed to be a darker, less heroic version of the detective. I see what they were trying to do, but it just felt so... wrong.

The environments are very closed, and you can only travel along a very linear path, even though it looks like you should be able to walk everywhere. It really takes you out of the game.

The Good:

Puzzles are sometimes fun.

The deduction board is a good idea. These were the only moments during the game when I actually felt like I was solving a mystery. But there are no consequences if you get it wrong; just keep clicking until you get it right.

Environments are kind of pretty. Not mind-blowing, but ok.

Frogwares has been doing Sherlock Holmes games for more than ten years. You'd think they'd gotten pretty good at it, but judging by The Testament of Sherlock Holmes, they've just gotten sloppy. The engine is getting visibly long in the tooth, and the mystery you're solving this time does some very un-Holmesian leaps of logic and plausibilty towards the end.

The production values are just plain mediocre all around. While some of the puzzles are fun, there is an alaming number of inventory puzzles requiring you to combine various ropes and ladders into longer ropes and ladders. At its worst, the gameplay just devolves into a hotspot hunt, a variation of the dreaded pixel hunt. Not recommended unless you're either a hardcore Holmes fan, or a hardcore adventure game fan.

An interesting game, however it has one big annoyance: you tend to figure it out before Homes does but then have to back track and do everything in the order the dev wants you to do it in - which is sometimes a much harder task than figuring out the mystery itself.

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've been enjoying this game so far. It's mostly a point and click adventure with some puzzles in the middle but the dialog and mystery is really fun. Very reminicant to the novels and stories.

An engrossing storyline punctuated by some fantastic moments and some genuinely good plot twists. The characters are engaging, the voice acting is excellent (though the lip syncing is a little off).

Puzzles were about right in terms of difficulty. I did have to use a walkthrough for a difficult puzzle but on the whole solving the puzzles was incredibly satisfying.

Graphics and sound do a good job of portraying the setting. The controls are a tad imprecise compared to other games which allow first person control – though this does not take away from the enjoyment of the game in a major way.

I bought it on sale so value-wise for £3 I got a quality 16 hours of gameplay! Can’t argue with that!
