A fantastic detective game, I would say this game is just as fun as LA Noire. Interactive environments, solving cases that sometimes lead to more questions and segments. If you are looking for a game to shoot bad guys like LA Noire that isn't this game, this game requires patience, careful calculation about finding suspects and clues and sometimes it has a mini-game that allows you to throw things or even shoot things. There are some funny moments and one odd thing which is a telescope aimed at a window with an obese lady staring back smiling.
9/10
The only thing that's down is the annoying map that pops up constantly when you venture slightly out of the area.

Cool game with interesting puzzles. Each case was a good length although a possibly a little too long to do one in a single play session if you don't have much time to spare.

One thing that did irk me a little was the loading screens between areas were a bit on the long side.

As an aside; weirdly the pause menu made my graphics card temp skyrocket.

I am a huuge fan of the Herlock Holmes Stories, so i had to get this game.
Turns out, it was a good idea.
in this game you will not only seaarch for clues and hunt criminals but also choose how to punish them. You can stick loyal to the law or follow your inner spirit.
Sometimes it is really tought to make a decision.
I was very sad when i finished the game and closed the last case, i hope there will be more games of this style coming.

I like Sherlock Holmes and am a fan of the books and tv shows but most the games I have played have not been good at all.
This has to be the first good sherlock homes game I have ever play and it's so good I hope they make another:) charachers are intresting and well acted, puzzels are fun and fit in the stories well. all in all a good game.

might be a bit easy for some people but I like the fact you did not get stuck and lose the flow of the story as this can make it easy to forget key bits of info.

If you'r a fan of any of the original works such as 'The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes', then this game is for you. Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments plays out much like one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original stories, and is a genuine pleasure to play. The positive notes of the gam are that ambience of the game is on point, and the cases kep you interested through to the conclusion. The negatives are that, firstly, the game controls feel a bit clumsy at times, most notably when investigating some clues, and secondly, that the puzzles themselves are not particularily challenging. A third drawback can also be argued in that it has next to no replay value, but this is more an inherent flaw in the genre of mystery games as a whole than a reflection on this game in particular.

In short, if you have $35 and a weekend to yourself, and are a fan of Sherlock Holmes or even just a good mystery, pick up this game. you won't regret it.

I'm not a Sherlock Holmes fan in the sense that I've never read the books, but the characters always felt interesting to me. That aside, this is a detective game done right. Every case does NOT give you the answer after giving you all the clues, you have to read through the clues you've gathered and the conversation logs to make the deduction YOURSELF. That to me, was awesome. No other game did something as brilliant as that.
The only thing I can complain about this game is being 6 cases only, I'd play 50 of this brilliantly crafted game.

This is just an amazing game, maybe the first one that I've played since I created my Steam account.

Six cases that will make you think hard to solve, and very good graphics and gameplay.

If you're a fan of this kind of game, solving puzzles and riddles, go for it, you absolutely won't regret it.

"Crimes and Punishments" is a classic adventure that let's you solve a handful of murder cases as Sherlock Holmes. It's a highly polished game with good graphics and (mostly) excellent voice acting. And it does a good job of capturing the essence and the quirks of the Greatest Detective, making it a good buy for fans of the famous character.

But what really makes this game stand out amongst other adventures: "Crimes and Punishments" actually gives you a chance to fail without reprimanding you for it. You will form your own deductions based on the clues that you find. Evidence will be ambiguous, leading to various possible outcomes of each case. The correct solution is not always obvious. And if you accuse the wrong person of comitting a crime, the game follows through. No "You failed", no "Reload and try again". This notion of non-linearity is somewhat of a novelty for adventure games which I thoroughly enjoyed.

My only criticism would be the lack of an overarching, meaningful story to tie it all together. The game tries to get a bit of closure during the last case, but feels way too rushed and too contrived, resulting in a rather bland anticlimax.

An evolution of adventure game. Frogwares developed their game to a higher level with evolved game system. After L.A Noire, I dare say this is a new history of adventure genre.

Frogwares has been on a very long roll with their Sherlock Holmes games for a very long time. This game is no exception.
Pros:
Gameplay. Amazing, feels more explorative than a few of the earlier titles. Love being able to look for clues myself instead of being pointed to everything. Dialogue feels more choice based than previous as well.
Choices. The deductions you can make are nuts. You can get things wrong, cause people's deaths, put away the wrong suspect. It's limited, but then, these titles are smaller than other companies' and what they are doing in terms of choice is still pretty incredible.
Story. A mix of canon and new cases makes the game pretty enjoable, and not as predictable as it would have been if they'd had cases from the story at every turn.
Visuals. BEAUTIFUL. Although lacking in a few areas, so many of the enviornments were very pretty and immersive. It was great to look around at the scenary while progressing.
Voice acting. The best so far in the series, I think. Loved Holmes' actor.

Cons:
Choices. Limited. Want more hands on ability. But obviously we're getting there.
Exploration. The worlds felt very alive and very cool, and being able to miss clues makes me want to go out further to explore things. The day we get an open-world Holmes day will be amazing.
Story. The short cases were great. However, it lacked a story on the whole as the previous games had one. I missed that. Working to an end goal of a larger mystery while tying up these litttle problems would have been incredible.

Pros and cons aside, this game is defnitely worth playing if you like the title, and if you're into seeing how mystery games are progressing. Looking forward to seeing more.

Very Good,if your a Sherlock Fan.
Pretty good cases to solve and some unique actions and skills to use
Puzzles are fairly straight forward but if your sloppy you can miss critical information and get the wrong conculsion.
Acting,Atmosphere and Gameplay are all pretty good overall.maybe a tad too easy or predictable mid game.

Six cases to solve,which are all quite interesting
One of the cases is a bit of a stretch even for Sherlock but its no game breaker.

you can skip the puzzles if you want
but the reinactments are worth doing and quite well done.
and there are some reaction quicktime events that can catch you out,if your not on the ball.
generally you can predict when these will occur.

My only minor complaint was the ending,it is was a bit ambiguous . 8/10 Sherlock fans +1

Amazing game!!!! I wish it was available on Mac OS though. I played all the different versions on my PC, and loved it. But my PC eventually broke down (for reasons unrelated to the game) and so I bought a Macbook pro, but now I want to replay it once more but cant. Still an amazing game.

An excellent adventure game. Each case is interesting, and the deduction system is really fun to use and play around with. The gameplay of searching around for clues does fall short in that you just need to walk up and interact with every interactable entity that you come across to gather all the evidence you need (which you'll know when every clickable thing has a green icon over it), but I enjoy the fun of the process. I look forward to the upcoming sequel a lot; six cases is a fair amount, but there's limited replayability so once you're done you probably won't get the same enjoyment from playing the same cases again unless you wait a year or so to play again.

This episodic adventure game shines through its love for detail and fleshed out characters. 6 cases offer different very atmospheric environments and lots of well written dialogue. Cases are solved by collecting clues, questioning witnesses and suspects, and solving occasional puzzles (nothing too difficult) that are then combined in a "clue screen" that allows for different choices in conclusions, that finally add up to a (not necessarily correct) solving of the case.
Beautiful graphics, great voice acting, highly detailed environments result in great immersion.
Very recommended for fans of adventure games and gamers who like their stories, but not necessarily the gameplay, to be challenging.
