genre : point and click adventure game in 3rd person
Another Sherlock Holmes adventure game, where as the famous detective , you have to solve 6 varied cases such as thefts, murders and missing persons.
+ Awesome presentation, best looking adventure game i have ever played, especially the character models are some of the best i have seen in gaming.
+ The cases you have to solve are varied and the atmosphere is dark, grim at times, the writing and dialogues are excellent.
+ Great soundtrack and voice acting.
+ Gameplay wise you use the famous skills of Sherlock : collect clues, examine them, use your tools at Baker's street, interrogate suspects at crime scenes or at the Scotland Yard, reconstruct crime scenes and use intuition skills to discover hidden clues, use your loyal dog , use disguises and much more to collect all the evidence and from your deductions name the guilty parties. Apart from discovering who is guilty you have to make moral decisions as to what their fate will be and at the end of each case you get to see the percentage of other people's choices. There is great freedom of choice, since after gathering some evidence you can choose who is guilty or continue playing , since most of the times you have to go beyond the obvious and collect more clues to find the truth.
+ Unless you do everything right in each case from the first time , there is some replayability, i had to replay 2 of the cases since i was biased the first time playing them .
+ Good duration, over 15 hours to complete all cases.
- Long loading times.
- Some stiff animations.
- I didn't like the lockpicking puzzle as mini-game, often skipped it.
This is one of the most polished adventure games i have ever played, definitely the best adventure game of the year (although my heart still prefers the dreamfall chapters) and one of the best of the last years. I didn't want it to end but again i had to replay some cases since i missed some clues. It's on the easy side but it can get really hard at times to discover everything and come to the right conclusion. Highly recommended whether on sale or not.
