Outstanding adventure game. My only minor complaint was the speed of Sherlock running around, as it was quite slow at times. However, the mysteries and puzzles more than make up for such a minor issue.

This game is good im most ways; the graphics are good, plot lines interesting and some features, such as the creating character profiles through observation, are very good.
The appearances of the characters and most of the speech and actions are true to the book- I love the Sherlock Holmes stories and this game is a pretty good representation.
However, the loading times aren't brilliant, though they do allow acess to casebook during loading screens which is good.
Some of the objectives are unclear, but it is up to you as a player I suppose, to logically think of what to do next.
Overall a good game, would reccomend.

Nothing in this game really excels, I wouldn't say that it was a bad experience, I had fun and enjoyed experiencing the game. But the flaws in the game are very noticeable, clunky controls, very linear and easily solvable cases, pointless filler action to make you feel like you are doing something when the game is just holding your hand through the experience. I don't feel mad though, I think that the developer is just caught in this awkward phase in gaming where certain aspects are expected of a game like detailed background environments, realistic character models, three dimensional environments that really felt superficial in this game. I'm sure this took a substantial amount of effort from the development team to make, but I feel it caused them to lose focus on the core aspects of the game like having truly branching case conclusions, clues as well as false leads and impactful endings to the cases themselves.

A must for Sherlock fans. As an avid reader and fanboy of Sir Arthur himself. This game has been a pleasure to play. Although not perfect, Crimes and Punishment offers a engaging detective game with mutiple conclusions to each case. As it should be, as murder cases should not be as straightforward like in most other detective games. What makes this game stand out from the other crime solvers is that YOU must figure who did it and why. There are muiltiple suspects in each case, all with good reason and evidence to suggest they did it. once you believe you found the true culprit, you can then choose to CONDEMN or ABSOLVE them.
Do you believe that cold blooded murderers deserve to get hanged? Or do you feel sorry for them and just give them a slap on the wrist and tell them not to do it again? Its a purely moral choice and its up to you.

Don't worry though, its not hard. if you pay attention and use a bit of logic, it should be easy to deduce who did it.

Pros:
+6 cases, all based on original Doyle works, but changed around to fit theme and story. No overarching plot. Purely episodic.
+Easy to use UI. The journal is easy to navigate and the deduction menu is the most interesting part of the game.
+Heavily detailed environments to explore. Good use of the unreal 3 engine. Atmosphere is good at times. Areas sometimes a bit lacking but cool to navigate.
+Classic Sherlock. This is Sherlock through and through, Eccentric and cunning. Awkward but stern. A cold hearted detective with near no emotion but a brillant mind in deduction nonetheless. Solves crime his own way, even to break the law himself, and causes Watson to be baffled by his nonsense. Get inside the mind of a rather dark character.
+Mutiple suspects means mutiple conclusions. You have to find out and choose who did it.

Cons:
- Can be poorly optimised at times. framedrops and occasional freezing happens sometimes. But not too much to interupt gameplay.
- Cases are too relaxing. There is no tension whatsoever. It seems though that after a murder happened, everyone sitsback and relaxes. Even Sherlock and Watson seem like their really on holiday instead of solving a murder.
-Visual options on launcher instead of in game.
-No fov slider. Narrow fov can be dizzy to some. I got used to it quick, but I do wish it can be wider.
-Annoying mouse acceleration. My camera can spazz out and sometimes it hard to precisely control my camera.
-Useless 3rd-person camera. I always used the 1st-person view. You need to looking close for clues.
-Watson can you get out of my way! Watson can block you in doorways. Hitboxes awkwardly made.
-Some cases are too short.
-In game puzzles are too simple and straightforward. however, I really don't mind, all i care about is finding clues and solving the case. I don't care about a matching game or a lockpicking minigame.

Despite its flaws, its a game worthy of the Holmes name itself. The gameplay is quite solid, allowing you to collect clues and deduce, but doesn't give too much away to make it too obvious. Makes you think.

I am a big fan of Sherlock Holmes stories since my childhood and an actual admirer of SH Games series. I just couldn't overlook "Crimes & Punishments"!
Although, I'd like to notice that some moments and endings of recent games can seem both very deep and bright... and disturbing for some people (I mean, when you're not so sure if you can agree with it as a part of one big story of Sherlock Holmes' life). However, I always liked it how these games developed. I would bought this game anyways - and, honestly, I don't feel sorry for spending time with this game.

A really great detective/mystery game, and not incidentally also an excellent Sherlock Holmes adaptation. No Moriarty, no Irene Adler, no New Sherlock, no Shipping, just detective work, early forensics, and legwork. A very, very solid game.

This is detective adventure game with six independent chapters. I must say that this is one of the best adventure games I have played in last few years.

Pros:
+ Length: It took me 22 hours to finish the game (I am experianced player)
+ Story: The storytelling is catching and interested me from the beginning at each chapter
+ Puzzles: I would say that they were quite adequate and even if player has trouble with them, there is always possibility to skip them - the game is obviously centered at story and detective part and most puzzles reflect that
+ English humour - I loved it! No further comment needed :D
+ Characters: The people in the game are alive and real, at least that it is like it seemed to me.
+ Decisions: The decisions do not have impact on the game itself, but still they felt important and interesting to me. I liked the possibility to look at the statistics of the other players decisions, which is a nice feature.

Cons:
- Cannot think of any. Some of the puzzles were a bit obscure, but as I said, there is always possibility to skip them.

Conclusion: If you are into detective stories and adventure games with a lot of story and characters, this is a obligatory game for you.

I was thuroughly satisfied with this game. I enjoyed the movies, the books, and the BBC television show. It is only natural that I should try and enjoy the video game.

PROS
- Graphics are steller.
- The logical deduction puts more of the solving power in your hands.
- I liked the voice acting for the most part.
- Super fun.

CONS
- The limited walking is that illusion of freedom in the hub-world. Which is fine, but distracting.
- Recycled voice actors can be distracting.
- While you can draw your own conclusions, and it does give you the option to choose a "right way" and a more honorable, merciful way -- the choices do not reflect game play long term.

Very good point and click adventure. Is a must to play if you like detectives and Sherlock Holmes in particular. What I liked in the game that even after finding all clues in the case you need to do some brain work yourself to find real culprit and not accuse innocent.

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.

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.

[SPOILER FREE]
Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishment is a beautiful and impressive adventure puzzle game starring a very popular detective who players will enjoy playing as to solve crime and choosing thier own choices in a case's outcome through deduction.

First off, the graphics of the game use the unreal engine 3 and a step up for the series.The facial features of the characters such as pores, scars, and even the detail on the clothing. Not only is the character detailed but so are the aesthetics and details put into each of the maps that the players will traverse to solve crimes, which gives it a it more immersion.

The music is appropriate for the game and kicks in at the right moment though the rest of the time the game is pretty quiet to letting concentrate and could use more to bring immersion. The voice acting is also decently done for most of the characters in the game and brings them to life in the game world.

Players can play the game with either a keyboard and mouse or with a game pad. Both are configured well and didn't include key binding, which isn't too bad since there aren't many keys to press for this type of game genre. Players be able to play this game in first or 3rd person whichever choice you decide. The controls may feel a bit stiff but overall it is not too bad at all.

Each of the maps in this game is really focused on the area where the crime appears. You won't find yourself in unnecessary places or free roaming since it isn't that sort of game though it is something to suggest for a future sequel. The game uses a fast travel system to travel around the map with a push of a button. With a button click, players can bring up a map and click on locations to travel where they need to go whenever you want. With each loading screen, Sherlock in the cab where the interface can also be brought up for the menu to look over the clues, evidence, and deduction while they wait. The menu itself is very sleek and organized.

The game play to Sherlock is to solve puzzles, gather evidence and to come up with deduction and solve crimes. The puzzles range from ordinary lock puzzles where you match locks to complicated puzzles where you rebuild molds, combine chemicals or find clues to fix certain situation, compare notes, Extreme arm wrestling and lots more variety to keep the game intriguing. There is a skip function for those that get frustrated or stuck at a puzzle but keep in mind that it is a puzzle game, and that self-satisfaction comes from solving by oneself.

Sherlock is armed with an arsenal of tools to help him combine clues and solve puzzles. Focus will help him see things that he will miss at times such as small marks and such. Imagination is when he gathers enough clues to solve a puzzle, he will be able to recreate the scenario in his mind to gather more clues and evidence and finally when he does get all this, he will be capable to go into deduction.
In deduction mode, Sherlock can look over his facts and evidence, draw a line between them and form bubbles and by doing so created deductions. Sometimes there is only one deduction in a bubble but other times. There will be two totals. As players look through all these bubbles, they'll be able to draw and combine a conclusion to the case. If the case is a contradiction, it will tell you between the bubbles. If it combines there will be a larger bubble and there will be a choice to the entire scenario. Either the person is guilty/innocent or an alternative choice route opened will be up to players to decide by finding enough clues and evidence.

The game introduces five case scenario total and may take a player 12-15 hours total to complete depending on how good they are at gathering clues and puzzles.

My opinion is that this is possibly the best puzzle/adventure game I have yet played. I enjoyed it though some of my cons are that the disguise function wasn't used as greatly as I thought and that the game hopefully will be even frequently more expansive with the deduction system in the future because that felt like the real meat of the game to me personally.

Pros
+ The graphic details are beautiful. You can see the details of the faces of characters, clothes, and the aesthetic to the background looks great with the Unreal 3 engine.
+ The puzzles are brilliant
+ The case themselves are very realistic in a sense
+ Brilliant story and cases. Especially the third case Blood Bath.
+ The voice acting is decently done. Most of the characters sounded great.
+ Deduction offers the players choices and replayability. Multiple choices on how to punish a crime or finish it off with another outcome.
+ Game lasts 12-15 hours



Cons
- Though beautiful the maps were decently sized and it felt too closed in especially with parts blocked off. Hopefully we'll see even larger areas in the future.
- Disguises weren't used as much in the game
- There is a skip button that pops up everytime that just seems to invite players to push it. Should be something you can turn off
- The online feature should take in more stats instead of just who chooses the choice or discovering it.
