One of my favorite games from 2014, and probably my all time favorite detective game is this. Crimes and Punishment is a blast to play! The new engine offers breathtaking views and stunning textures, and the voice acting is fantastic. You have to make moral choices in this game, which affects the story.

The cases are much more interesting in this game then the previous Sherlock games, thanks to great mission variation. Solve murders, investigate thefts and missing people. "Will you follow the law or your moral?", is the question you have to go by on every case.

Every case is smart and well thought out. You always think you understand who did the crime, until it suddenly turns the other way around. When you finally complete a case you feel satisfied though. You will look around for a long time, just because you want to find every clue. If you get stuck you can get hints, look in your journal and ask doctor Watson.

I think this game is very underrated. It's one of the most polished games released in 2014 and offers a great story with absolutely fantastic cases. If you haven't picked this game up yet, please consider doing it. I really hope Frogware will release more content for this game. DLC, expansion or sequel, because I adore the game and would really wish for more great and exciting cases to solve.

Crimes and Punishment gets a warm recommendation from me.

As a fan of adventure games i am always looking for new and entertaining adventure games to play. I‘m very picky and not every adventure game will satisfy my needs. I have stumbled on Sherlock Holmes Crimes and Punishment a while ago and added it to my wishlist. I bought it on summer sale and i don‘t regret it. I love the game.
First thing what caughts the eye is graphics. It is rare for an adventure game to have a really good graphics. Keep in mind that „technically good“ and „nice to the eye“ is different. A drawn 2D graphics can look much better than technically more advanced 3D graphics with poor 3D models. I remember when Broken Sword gone to 3D graphics, it looked awful, i was angry about that, i was disappointed that developers decided to go that way instead of just classical 2D graphics. It was a trend at that time and it was a bad trend. Sherlock Holmes Crimes and Punishment is one of those adventure games in full 3D where graphics looks really nice. Character face models are amazing. It lacks better animations like in Beyond two souls, Heavy rain or LA Noire, but i guess this game had much smaller budget, so it‘s really amazing what they had achieved in graphics department. Environments looks great too. You can take rally nice looking screenshots. The environments are different and pretty detailed. In short i don‘t have any complaints regarding graphics.
The game consists from 6 chapters which are 2,5-3 hours long each. The gameplay consists from exploring the crime scene, taking notice of every detail, gathering evidence and talking to the witnesses and victims. After all these things are done you can start a deduction process where you must make connections between collected statements and evidence and get a conclusion. There are few outcomes in every case, there‘re always few suspects and you can wrongly accuse a person of doing a crime and condemned him. But most fun is to find out who‘s the real culprit is. Even when you find him you can absolve him or make him guilty so that he would receive his punishment. It‘s your moral choice at the end of the chapter.
The game is not too hard but it‘s not easy either. You can be stuck at some point not knowing what to do. As always it‘s just some small thing you missed. There are some puzzles in the game. Each case has few of them. I like that puzzles are all different and are pretty logical and not too complicated except for lock hacking puzzles. They‘re in every case and sometimes you get more than one of it. But you can skip the puzzles, it doesn‘t have any impact to the story or outcome.
All in all i recommend this game to everyone who loves adventure games, you will not be disappointed. This is one of those hidden gems (*cough* The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 *cough*) made by a small company which probably didn‘t pay back.

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments is a game that consists of 6 playable mysterious cases of the world famous detective.

Gameplay 8.5 of 10
The game captures the feel of the Victorian London quite well, the whole environment design is really detailed, including tapestry, pictures on the wall, clothes and manner of speaking. You collect pieces of evidence and use Sherlock Holmes power of deduction to come to a reasonable conclusion and uncover the truth. But be aware, can you come to the right conclusion? Or are you going to verdict an innocent man? Sometimes you know quite fast who did the crime, but how can you prove it? Use all of your senses. Smell , vision and hearing and if you can't find the conclusion yourself , you can get help from Sherlock Holmes dog Toby and sometimes you can also switch characters ,so you can play as Watson. You can also reenact some crimes in your mind to see if the witness’s statements are conclusive.

Graphics 8 of 10
The graphics are really good, you can even see dust particles in the air. The unreal engine really did do some good for the game. Especially the faces, when you interrogating the witness. You almost can’t tell they are game characters. They look so real.

Sound 8 of 10
There is slight background music, a little mellow, but fitting the scenery perfect and sometimes it's adding suspense. The voice acting is top notch. The English actors are truly good and really make you feel like you are in England at that time.

I played some of the other Sherlock Holmes games and this feels like it could be one of my favorites. So I would definitely recommend it to every adventure gamer who likes a good story and engaging puzzles.Even for gamers who are just starting out , this is a good way to start into adventures and point-and-click games.

As someone who has played many Sherlock Holmes games, I was delighted by the updated interface, and puzzles. While not perfect ( a few graphics glitches) it is quite the improvement from earlier releases.

Pros
- New puzzle styles offer different ways of arriving at conclusions
- Deduction board allows you to come to wrong conclusions
- Special skills allow you to "see" the world as Sherlock Holmes does
- Moral choice at the end of each case to see how you want to handle things

Cons:
- Loading time can be excruciating, but they do allow you to review your casebook and deduction board which helps to mitigate the pain
- Price is a bit steep, so I waited until the game was on sale

9/10

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.
