TL;DR Version:
The game can be a little too hand-holdy, but it occasionally succeeded at tricking me into thinking I was much smarter than I am. It was enjoyable and I want to see more.

Long Version:
It was okay. If you like tracking down clues with Telltale Games-ish point-and-click mechanics, but need a bit of hand-holding when it comes to anything more arduous than looking at people, then this one's for you. The moral choice system is a bit shallow since the only real choices are at the end of each case as you're about to name your killer: "will you condemn the villain most harshly, or let them off easy this time?" Mind you, that choice can be a lot harder than it sounds, and it's more satisfying than the usual "good or evil" option that pollutes choice-based games these days, but there were no lasting consequences either way; when a case was over, the slate was wiped and everything was back to normal, so the moral choices, which were actually quite difficult, were reduced to something less intense. Good game, nonetheless, and I hope to see more, even better entries from the studio in the future.

I wasn't expecting much from this game, but I have been consistently impressed by the quality of the writing, voice acting, and visuals.

Playing as Sherlock Holmes is made interesting by way of a unique system for connecting deducations (represented as synapses in his brain) that creates different outcomes depending on how they are arranged. You gain deductions by following up on clues, which requires talking to people, inspecting the environment, and playing a variety of mini games (everything from lock picking to arm wrestling, to chemistry).

The characters have incredibly good facial animation and well rendered skin (definitely the best use of sub surface scattering that i've seen in a game) which, combined with some truly stellar voice work, gives them an extremely 'human' quality. All of this leads you to care about them, and the stories they have. That's a pretty important thing, because the bulk of the game is spent listening to them speak.

If you are into adventure or puzzle games, or just someone who appreciates great visuals and attention to detail this is a game well worth picking up.

I would give this game 10/10 raging clues.

A good adventure game.

Pros: Very pretty, great VO and art. Nice puzzles nothing too taxing and interesting cases and characters

Cons: A lot more linear from previous games, the random cases were nice but there was no background story there to tie them together really.

A step back from The Testament of Sherlock Holmes but still a good game for those that like adventure games.

Enjoyed my time with it and it was quite meaty time wise.

Vast improvement over the last one, Testament of Sherlock Holmes (which was itself a lot of fun).
-Graphics are way better (and you get to customize your appearance a little)
-Voice acting has improved slightly
-You won't spend time looking at completely irrelevant items
-The morality/decision making is fun (I also really liked how you can go back and change your decision and see all the different outcomes)
-You can replay separate cases after you've solved them
-There's still an overall ending (but you won't understand it unless you pay attention to dialogue from the beginning)

There were a few things I didn't like:
-Way too short, could have used more cases!
-You can't change your appearance very much besides specific situations, before you beat the game once

What an amazing game! I think this is probably the best game I've played in over a year.

The graphics are very good, it's easy to manoeuvre in the game and even I as an amateur detective can solve and enjoy the cases, but I also made some mistakes, so the game isn't super easy -- yet anyone can play this, I'm sure!

What makes this game stand out and go from solid to phenomenal, is the stories. There's six stories (cases) in all. Great dialogue and the game leads you from step to step. It's fairly easy to find clues, but the smart part is that YOU, the player, get to interpret the clues.
To give you an example, you find clues that the rails are removed near a lake and near a cave. You're looking for a disappearing train. What do you deduce? You need further evidence to make the correct deduction. If you do this well and interpret the clues correctly, they will lead you to the correct conclusion. But if you make errors, you can reach a wrong conclusion and send an innocent man to prison or the noose! Brilliantly done!

You really feel you're back in Sherlock Holmes' day and age, with gas lamps and coaches. It is so well done, I even started reading a book with Sherlock Holmes stories after finishing this ~27-hour game. Turns out the stories in the game could VERY WELL HAVE BEEN WRITTEN DOWN in the form of a book. So this game plays great for Sherlock Holmes enthusiasts as well as for SH rookies. Big thumbs up!

Bought this a few days ago, massive massive fan of Sherlock Holmes and didn't even notice that this game was out until a few days ago. Bought it immediately and love it so far! Love the character portraits you do and the style in which you do them (similar to the Sherlock BBC series in terms of editing). The London Baths case took an eternity to do near the end but it was good being challenged. GREAT graphics and a 10/10 for me.

This is the first game ever to make me actually want to buy a DLC (Which I don't know exists).

The graphics are beautiful, and gameplay's great, if a little easy at times.
I really like the new deduction mechanic, and the new profiling mechanic.
The cases are interesting and varied, and feel like they naturally belong in a "Sherlock Holmes world".

Figuring out the conclusion of every case is very nice because it makes sure you don't just click around without actually understanding what's going on. Some of the cases are harder than others, sometimes the conclusion is pretty obvious and sometimes it's really hard to figure out, I got it wrong in one of the 6 cases. I like that the possible conclusions keep changing with new evidence.

Would have been more challenging if you had to pick which item to use when you need "an object of interest" instead of the game just giving you the right option. Also would have been more challenging if the game didn't tell you when to use the "Sherlock Talent" and the "Sherlock Imagination" abilities.

The environments are beautiful, would have loved to try this in VR. I spent some of the time just looking around and enjoying the scenery. Voice acting is very nice in my opinion; a historian friend of mine noted that Sherlock's accent didn't sound right, but I had no problem with it.

Overall a very fun experience for me, I enjoy games that make you think, and this is much better than just a regular adventure game. Would love to play many more cases, but the game is definitely worth buying "just" for those 6, every case is more than an hour of very interesting content.

TL;DR: A strong recommendation. Might not be everyone's cup of tea, but especially for any Sherlock Holmes fan out there, this shouldn't be missed.

Longer one:

The best one in the series. Frogwares has really managed to capture the oldschool holmes vibe and once again did something a bit different to break their formula - something I respect a lot. The production values have also gone up a notch once again, as did the writing of the cases. I also really, REALLY liked the deduction space in this one and the possibility to do totally wrong deductions and even accuse the false party (something I also enjoyed a lot in for example LA Noire). This one wasn't that much about the puzzles, but really capturing the essence of Holmes. It's easy to see how much the team loves the title character (and I also bet the old BBC adaptation of the Holmes cases :) ).

The ONLY real nag from me is the hand holding nature of the "inspector-mode". Why on Earth have they decided to not put the hinting icon for switching into inspector-mode (and re-enactment also) as an OPTION, in beyond my understanding. IMO this game would've been even better, if that could've been turned off and let for the player to figure out when to use it.

Can't wait the next one in the series, as Frogwares have better themselves on every instalment.

This game is doing a great job at story telling. Every case feels unique and offers interesting and well-written dialogues and deduction phases. The character design and overall graphics are amazing. I really hope the creators will release a bunch of DLCs in the near future, so we can continue our investigations beyond the 10 hours of the original game in the Victorian London and the surrounding areas.

Let's play a game, its called "How many ways can I say Awesome?"

First off, its hard to screw up great content. The Sherlock Holmes books have spawned tons of movies and tv shows and continues to maintain its fan base for a reason. Compelling and dynamic characters in head scratching situations.

So why have Sherlock Holmes games been so bad for so long? I don't know, because these guys figured it out.

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments has all the asthetic, visual, and sound effect excellence that Bioshock Infinite has. The experience in each moment makes you want to play more. Add in to that the freedom (such that it is) to explore and examine things AND the Moral choices left entirely to the player and this game is Stupendous, Spectacular, and A-Stounding.

I loved every moment, and I can not urge the developers enough to put out DLC.

Please, please, please, please.

voice acting
sound work
visuals to an extent (Toby doesn't look quite right)
case stories
mini games
interesting real world facts in some cases
imagination mode

load times = long wait times for traveling
a lot of back and forth traveling, which wouldn't be so bad except for the load times
being forced to use the detection ability, even when some clues are pretty obvious
repetative use of the lock picking mini game

Mycroft is an annoying, egotistical, preachy, self entitled, judgemental, rude, butt.
On one case, my decision at the end was entirely influenced by my desire to say f-u to Mycroft.

I own the Sherlock Holmes collection and have played Nemesis, Jack the Ripper, and Testament so far. All of which I have enjoyed. I was really looking forward to Crimes and Punishments and immediately bought it once it was released.

I can happily say I do not regret this decision.

Another person commented that "the whole game plays like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 'The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes'" and with that I can agree. None of the cases are solidly connected with an over arching plot, but there are some slight connections and references here and there. Including some throwbacks to the older games.

The quick time events are actually well incorperated in my opinion, and come at relatively appropriate times. They really help to add to the feeling of using Sherlock's skills.

The cases are enjoyable and some have large deduction trees, which makes for an even more fun final conclusion. Sometimes you can gather enough clues and evidence to make an immediate deduction, but without all the evidence, there is a possibility that deduction might be wrong.

I think I would have enjoyed being able to play as Toby a little more. I also feel the disguise system was under utilized and somewhat limited in the promised freedom of choice.

Lastly, I agree with Watson. Fyodor Dostoyevsky's "Crime and Punishment" was a very hard book to understand. It took me almost 6 months to finish it and that was because near the end, I dreaded having to pick up the book.
Also, Mycroft is an ♥♥♥ and he insulted me personally with what he said to Watson about understanding the book.

A nice game, with a few hiccups but nothing gamebracking.
I had some framedrops now and then with my AMD HD7970 but it is no fps so it did not bother me much.

The morder cases are almost all nicely written and the overarching plot (which is very subtle) has some nice views on modern society.

For some it might be a bit to easy but it is relaxing to play.

A brillinant game. The graphics are reasonable, the voice acting and dialouge was alright and mini games kept the game interesting and allowed change (although they get stale by the last case). Each story is about two hours long so there is quite a bit of game time. The cases themselve are clevearly constructed leaving you asking questions to the end of each one but you don't need years of investigative experince because with Dr Watson as your comparison and the skills of Sherlock Holmes solving each case is... Elementary.

A truly captivating game. It's clear that a lot of hard work as put into every aspect of the game, as its difficult to even close out of the game. While requiring some smarts to solve various puzzles, it also supplies an interesting experience each playthrough, with multiple conclusions to each case and difficult moral decisions.

Seems like a test for a new engine and a new game mechanics. Kind like "we'll try it out on C&P, and next time when we master it fully we'll give you something BIG!" I really have this impression after playing. Too easy, too smooth gameplay, too little of worthy puzzles inside. The only challange is to pick a lock. Like someone said: the game plays itself. But I am a fan of the series so I like it nevertheless.
