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.

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!

9/10

Great Story, Terrible gameplay. It is frustrating, boring and well over priced. Save yourself the effort and watch a walk through instead on youtube.

The Testament of Sherlock Holmes is a really atmospheric addition to the series. The story is original and very interesting, puzzles are top-notch and demand lots of thinking and the game-play is satisfyingly long. What is more - there are some really pleasant surprises along the way.

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!

The graphics and atmosphere were good but the solutions to puzzles could be beyond frustrating. Sometimes the solutions made no sense and sometimes they required picking up objects that you couldn't pick up before. Grrrr.

Once upon a time, Sherlock Holmes games were badly designed, then came The Testament of Sherlock Holmes, and that was when Adventure Games' quality got really high. Great game and great story out of the usual stories of Sherlock.

Complete croc and ♥♥♥♥. The characters aside from the main ones were brutally modeled. And despite being a dialogue heavy game, no one seems to have any decent lip syncing. Not to mention the voice acting itself. While the actors sound the part, none of them can give a proper performance using the attrocious dialogue written. It sounds like the writers simply copied sir conan doyle's writing pattern and expected it to translate to voice. Not to mention the fact that they clearly don't know how to properly write this kind of stuff. Watson sounds like an imbecile gawking in awe of the "great" sherlock, who did nothing but walk around and look at the crime scene, and while yes that's what he does in the the rest of the stuff, there was to presentation of what sherlock actually does, which is observe. Instead we get Sherlock wandering around a room clicking on anything with a magnefying glass and then when he has to reveal the big secret? a Monkey did it. ooh, spoilers, sorry for ruining the tutorial for you. Sorry, but they are writing sherlock as a detective novel when the books were never detective novels they were adventure novels ABOUT a detective. there's a big difference.
