Oyunda, İngiltere'nin eski zamanlarında dolaşırken birbirinden bağımsız 6 davayı çözmeye çalışıyor ve her türlü ipucu, bulmacalardan yararlanıyorsunuz. Oyun TPS türünde. Artılar ve eksilerden bahsetmek gerekirse:

ARTILAR:
+ Grafikler gerçekten çok güzel.
+ Başarılı atmosfer.
+ Tatmin edici müzikler.
+ Neredeyse tüm seslendirmeler oldukça başarılı.
+ Bazı davaların hikâyesi ve konusu oldukça ilginç.
+ Mini oyunlar.
+ Son karar mekanizması.
+ Sir Arthur Conan Doyle'un orijinal hikâyelerini andıran davalar.
+ Bulmacalar bol, çeşitli ve tek kelimeyle harika.
+ Karakter analiz sistemi.
+ Sorgulama ve tutuklama durumları.
+ Sorgulama esnasında karakterlerin yalanını ortaya çıkarıp gerçeğe ulaşma.
+ Elinizde bulunan ipuçlarından yeni sonuçlara varma.
+ Yeterli oyun süresi.
+ Farklı kararlar alabilmeniz sayesinde oyunun tekrar edilebilirliğinin artması.
+ Görsel olarak detaylıca tasarlanmış bölümler.
+ Eğlenceli oynanabilirlik.

EKSİLER:
- Uzun yüklenme ekranları.
- Dr. Watson yanımızda sadece süs olarak duran birisi. Daha etkili bir karakter olarak tasarlanabilirdi.
- Oyunun resmî türkçe altyazısı bulunmadığı için, ileri derecede ingilizce bilgisine sahip olmanız gerekiyor.
- Âhlak sistemi gereksiz.
- Oyun tam anlamıyla bağımsız değil ve sizi belli sınırlar içerisine koyuyor.
- Davalarda doğru kararı alıp almadığınızı görebilmeniz.
- Davaların tamamiyle birbirinden bağımsız olmasından dolayı ana hikâye diye bir kavram yok.
- Daha fazla dava olabilirdi.
- Mini oyunları istediğinizde geçebilmeniz oyunun rekabetçi havasını az da olsa bozmuş.
- Kostüm ve makyaj kullanımı daha etkili olabilirdi.
- Oyuncuya çok yardımcı olunması.

Sonuç olarak, bulmacalarla dolu, düşünmenizi gerektirecek, suçluları hapse tıkarak adaleti yerine getirmenizi sağlayacak ve tamamiyle farklı bir oyun deneyimi istiyorsanız, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments oynamanızı şiddetle tavsiye ediyorum.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’un 1887’de yayınlanan “Kızıl Soruşturma” isimli eserinden bu yana Sherlock Holmes ismi zihinlerimizde dedektiflik öğesi ile birleşmiştir. Günümüzde dedektiflik, adli tıp ve teknolojik takip sistemlerindeki muazzam ilerlemelerden beslenen bir meslek haline gelmiş olsa da vakalarla ilgili veri toplama ve çeşitli çıkarımlar yapma gibi mesleğin insani yaratıcılık gerektiren kısımları hemen hemen Sherlock Holmes’ün maceralarını yaşadığı dönemdekilerle hala aynı kalmış durumda. Bundandır ki, yapımcı Frogwares, bizleri bu veriler ve çıkarımlardan oluşan zihinsel labirentlerden birinde gezintiye çıkartıyor; hem de en ünlü dedektiflerden olan Sherlock Holmes olarak.

Crimes & Punishments, Frogwares tarafından yapılan dokuzuncu Sherlock Holmes oyunu. Küçük bir firma olan Frogwares daha çok adventure oyunları üzerine özelleşmiş diyebiliriz. Frogwares’in bu azmi de her oyun ile artan prodüksiyon kalitesi ile kendini gösteriyor. Crimes & Punishments da firmanın ulaştığı son noktayı gösteren bir yapım. Şu sıralar artık az rastlanan adventure oyunları içerisinde de iyi bir oyun olarak yerini alacak gibi gözüküyor. Watson’cığım beyefendileri ve bayanları içeri al da bir çay eşliğinde daha derinlemesine konuşalım bu konuyu.

Serinin eski oyunlarına göre grafikler çok daha göz alıcı ve kontrol çok daha akışkan bir hale gelmiş. Özellikle serinin bir önceki oyununa (Testament of Sherlock Holmes) göre bulmacalar çok daha basit diyebilirim ama detektiflik hissini en çok Crimes and Punishment da hissediyoruz. Kendimize göre davayı çözme (doğru veya yanlış çözebiliyorsunuz) ve davanın sonuncunu belirlenmesini oyuncuya bırakması açısından çok daha esnek ve tekrar oynanabilirliği olan bir oyun Crimes and Punishment.
Serinin bir diğer yeniliği ise oyundan 1 den fazla dava olması , oyunu tek bir davaya odaklayıp bazen sıkmaktansa , oyuncuyu farklı mekanlara farklı olaylara ve tanıklara yönlendirmesi oyuna çeşitilik katmış fakat oyunun tam hızınını almışken bitmesi (toplam 6 dava var, 2 tanesi diğerlerine göre kısa) damakta ''ah keşke daha fazla olsaydı'' tadı bırakıyor.
Eğer serinin hayranı ve eski oyunları oynamış iseniz, oyunu pek zorlanmadan bitiriyor fakat paranıza ve geçirdiğiniz güzel zamana tamamen değiyor.
Eğer Sherlock Holmes oyunlarını hiç oynamayıp Crimes and Punishment ile başladıysanız. sizi eski oyunlara doğru inanılmaz bir serüven bekliyor,
Testament of Sherlock Holmes un pek de tatmin etmeyen ending in ardından Crimes and Punishement 'ın endingi oldukça tatmin edici ve serinin devam oyununun gelmesi için bir an önce zaman geçsin istiyorsunuz.

[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.

I took it upon myself to wait until I had received 100% of the achievements before making my review.

Compared to The Testament of Sherlock Holmes, Frogwares and Focus Entertainment have come a VERY LONG WAY! From astoundingly beautiful graphics, to great plotlines and endless solutions, I was in awe the entire time.

The one thing I loved the most was the way they improved on Sherlock Holmes's personality. Compared to Testament, Holmes in Crimes and Punishments has a more gentle and chivalrous side to him, which is something definitely found in the books. I'm an oldschool Sherlock Holmes fan, so this game was perfect!

I am very excited to see possible sequels in the future.

-The gameplay for the most part keeps in line with the rest of the series, with only a few noteworthy departures. There's now a sort of "detective vision" that highlights examinable objects, and while it can be ignored most of the time, it is sometimes necessary to find things like scratches on a lock or markings on the floor. The game does bring up a prompt when it's required, however, so you can safely ignore it otherwise if you choose to for the sake of immersion or challenge. You also now have the ability to talk with suspects at jail, and can present evidence to them to disprove any lies they may be telling you. Finally, you can now access the wardrobe and disguise kit at any time by going to your apartment, and you can select from a small variety of hats, facial hairs, and suits to wear (which is sometimes required for the sake of disguising yourself). Aside from these changes, anyone who's played the previous entries will be right at home (and the game does give minor references to the previous games in the series); there are still more "classic-style" adventure game puzzles (though they're sometimes repeated, like this one lock puzzle that shows up around once per case), and things like Holmes's chemistry set are used once again.

-The game does give you more freedom than the previous games, which I think adds a lot to the experience. To use the first case as an example, by the time you've collected all the clues and pieced them together (you do this on your own in a menu, rather than having Holmes explain everything away for you), you're left with three different suspects, which you then have to choose from on your own based on your evidence. You're free to arrest any of them, and the game doesn't actually tell you which one was correct unless you choose to reveal the "spoiler" at the end of the case. You also get to choose to either condemn or absolve the criminal, which seems to be more of a moral choice than an actual logical one. The game ultimately leaves a lot up to the player, but it does slightly hold your hand. If you have evidence that needs to be used, discussed with someone, or researched in the archive at your apartment, it'll have a small icon on it in the inventory menu that tells you that. The game also somewhat spoils you with the Objectives menu, in that it makes it difficult to not find all the evidence due to the game generally not removing a "Investigate ____" objective until you've found everything in a particular area. If there was one thing I could change about the game it would be the inclusion of a "classic mode" that removes the objectives menu and the icons, and I hope they will take this into consideration for further games.

-One thing that bothered me is that there isn't much of a connection between the cases, and there doesn't seem to be any consequences for your choices. Whenever you choose to let the killer go free, Sherlock makes up an excuse to tell Scotland Yard and that's basically the end of it, with the only continuation of each case being receiving a letter from the culprit at the start of the next case thanking you and explaining what they're doing now. I don't think that this diminishes the effect very much, since on a by-case basis I do still care about the characters and I think just having a choice at all is a great step forward, but it'd be nice for them to put some sort of penalty on absolving people instead of condeming them so that it would be more difficult to just let everyone go free (which might end up happening a lot, since the culprits generally have at least a slightly element of moral grayness with some exceptions).

-One of the cases is rather short, but aside from that outlier they're each somewhere around 3 hours long, and there are 6 of them in total. If you prefer games with a long-running narrative instead of 6 mostly unrelated smaller cases then you might be disappointed with this. The game's overall length is fine in my opinion, but on a by-case basis the cases are somewhat short.

-This is a small feature, but one thing that I thought was really neat is that during the loading screens between areas it shows Holmes and whoever is travelling with you in a carriage and allows you to access your evidence to review the case or your deductions to link points together while the game loads, so that you aren't just sitting around waiting. The loading times aren't substantial enough to be irritating anyways in my experience, but it's a nice touch.

-The graphics are extremely good, particularly in the character models. The characters' faces are very well-detailed and animated.

-The characters all seem to have been at least slightly redesigned, though Watson mostly still resembles his old appearance. And I can't say for certain, but it seems like everyone has different voice actors now. They still sound close enough that it isn't jarring, and they've already grown on me after one case so it's not a problem, but it's something worth mentioning. Edit: I've noticed that Sherlock hasn't actually changed designs, it just looks that way because of his new default hairstyle. He does look slightly different than he did before facially, but when you use the wardrobe to put his old hat on (which happens automatically in the second case) he looks almost the same.

-Creepy Watson does not appear to be in the game, despite the April Fools video giving hope that he might be back. RIP Creepy Watson 2008 - 2008

Overall, if you're a fan of the game series or just enjoy Sherlock Holmes or mystery novels in general, you could make worse purchases than this. It's a strong mystery game overall, though there are a few things that I hope they do better with in later games.

This entry into Frogwares' Sherlock Holmes series is the biggest change since The Awakened.

Frogwares' switch to the Unreal engine seems to have paid off, as this is by far their best looking SH game yet.

The voice acting has also greatly improved, and together with improved character animations, C&P delivers a cinematic, high production value experience.

The gameplay, on the other hand, is the simplest yet. C&P plays a bit more like an interactive movie such as Heavy Rain or The Walking Dead than a typical adventure game. But the experience is still rather enjoyable, and the change certainly makes C&P the most accessible title yet. The game also seems to borrow the "observation text" from the BBC Sherlock mini-series, which is a nice touch. I think there may be some inspiration taken from LA Noire as well.

Although there are few puzzles to speak of, the most interesting feature is the "conclusion system". Even if you uncover all the clues (which is very easy to do), the player is able to deduce multiple conclusions. Only one conclusion is "correct", but it isn't always obvious which that is. The game requires you to pay attention and in some cases think rather carefully in order to come to the right conclusion.

The game also appears to borrow from Telltale's TWD and Wolf Among Us in introducing episodic gameplay with a "moral choice" at the end of each case. There are 6 cases total, each lasting roughly 2-3 hours. In addition to deciding the conclusion of each case, you decide between two moral choices. This doesn't seem to have much impact aside from showing you a different ending sequence. Although saving is automatic, after finishing a particular case ending sequence, you can restart before you committed to the conclusion and moral choice. This conveniently allows you to see all possible endings, if you so desire, in one playthrough.

Although the episodic gameplay introduces more variety than previously seen, the individual cases are not quite as compelling as the storylines of previous titles. Some cases are perhaps a bit too obvious, although there's still plenty of cleverness in the writing.

As an ardent fan of Sherlock Holmes adaptations as well as the source material, I definitely recommend this title.

It's also fairly easy to unlock 100% achievements. This is possible to do in one playthrough, although doing so without a walkthrough would be difficult. Unfortunately, most walkthroughs tend to spoil the plots of the cases. It is possible to replay any case after completing the game, though.

+ Graphics (with facial animations in particular)
+ 6 varied cases with different outcomes, depending on your research and choices
+ Newly added gameplay mechanics make it even more fun to be a detective
+ Lack of a bigger story also makes it more fun (there is one but not everything is connected with weird and awkward plot twists this time)
+ Voice acting is mostly solid

- Puzzle difficulty is still rather easy
- Limited freedom
- Would've loved to see more cases

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.

Compared to the last Sherlock Holmes game - The Tastement of Sherlock Holmes, this game is way over my expectation. The graphic is amazing, and looks nicer with warm colors (Oh, I hate the cold tone in TToSH so bad), The stories/cases are so interesting. Now I can choose how to punish/solve the cases - along with some cool actions. I love how they construct the Deduction in this game - way better and more like in criminal movies/series (who doesn't seek for neuron in those kinds of thriller/crime). In short, this is a game that I highly recommend for those who love Sherlock Holmes (like me, teehee, I know some of endings before they got inspired from the books - oops, spolier here). It's time to put those books down and live the action.

Do you like mysteries?
Do you like well dressed Englishmen?
Do you like staring at women through windows?

If so this is the game for you. It is an excelent mystery with satisfying mini-games.

The biggest flaw is there is a loading screen between areas and gets rather obnoxious, especially towards the end of levels when your bouncing between locations trying to get the last of the clues. Other than that the game is really enjoyable.

Would buy again.

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.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes series developed by Frogwares has been going on for more than a decade now. It’s had its ups and downs, but the general tendency was upwards. After Frogwares reached their peak in the previous game, The Testament of Sherlock Holmes, they decided it was time for a general refurbishment of the series. So they picked the last two games and put them into a mixer, along with The Walking Dead (by Telltale), The Cave and L.A. Noire. Can the result live up to this legacy? If you bear with me for a moment, then I will tell you.

The first choice by Frogware was to ditch their in-house engine for the Unreal Engine 3. The result is jaw-dropping graphics. I was really astonished. Take a look at the user screenshots, this is the best-looking adventure game I have played so far.
However, the advertising screenshots and videos are slightly misleading. With two exceptions, all the locations are quite depopulated.

The second choice was to switch to an episodic model like The Walking Dead and other games, except that the six episodes were all released at once and are almost completely disconnected from each other, so there isn’t really such a thing as a progressive storyline. However, the game fits into the canon of the series.
Frankly, with the episodic model and a storyline unclosed because it was never really opened, the game has this smell of possible upcoming DLC about it. I wouldn't be surprised at all if one or two DLC episodes popped up.
Individually, the six episodes are like well-written short stories. The cases are interesting and well-written, conceivable and logically constructed with some very neat ideas and quite unusual locations. But only the last episode has something that resembles a progressing story, the other cases consist of little more than the whodunit.

There also is a moral choice aspect which is misunderstood by many critics. It is not a moral choice system in the sense of The Walking Dead, but more in the sense of The Cave. The Cave had a moral choice aspect you might ask? Well, for each character there was a bad ending and a hidden good ending, go look it up. Which ending you got hinged entirely upon a decision at the very end of the game.
Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments is similar. For each case, there are between three and six possible conclusions. You can pick one and choose if you want to punish the prosecuted party with the full force of the law or if you want to handle the case more softly. And after you watched/played your particular ending sequence, a very bright design choice comes to life: you can return to the point of your choice and try another ending. So unlike other games with moral choice systems which have to be played multiple times, you only need to play the game once and may see all the possible endings in a single playthrough.

But as we have learned half a year ago from NOCLIP – The Game (also known as Murdered: Soul Suspect, read my review), good graphics with the Unreal Engine and a decent story cannot hold up a game if the gameplay almost completely sucks. Be relieved, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments does not make the same mistake.
Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments is not exactly a Point-and-Click adventure. You investigate the crime scenes and look for clues. Many of them are tied to minigames, most of which are skippable. You also collect items and information and talk to witnesses and suspects. Occasionally you will catch someone in a lie and have to present evidence of the lie, just like L.A. Noire.
The clues you found are presented on the very fancy deduction screen, where you have to combine them into facts. And out of the facts, you draw conclusions. This game mechanic has replaced the inventory puzzles.

The aforementioned jaw-dropping graphics come at a price, and that price is loading times. The game needs to load for quite a while between every single scene transition (and there are many of them), so Frogwares made that commute less dull by A) making this particular loading screen not look boring after five seconds and B) letting you consult your notes and the deduction screen.
But the game also loads briefly before every dialogue and before many of the minigames and QTE-scenes, which messes with the pacing when the bad guy draws a gun and you are supposed to resolve this situation in a QTE, but inbetween you have to stare at a black screen with a spinning circle for fifteen seconds.

Other than that, the game flow works very well. You can always look up what tasks are left to do, so you never really get stuck and there is little reason to consult a walkthrough. Maybe it has become a little too easy, but the challenge lies in finding the correct conclusion.

Concerning the playability, I have been playing the release version and found a couple of minor glitches, but nothing remotely significant or gamebreaking.

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments introduces many new borrowed ideas, but only few of them can unfold to their potential. It is not without criticism and some of its potential is lost. The game took a step back from classic Point-and-Click adventures and made a step towards interactive movies, but without falling into the pit of irrelevant gameplay like NOCLIP - The Game, which I mentioned earlier. This time, I can recommend to actually play the game instead of just watching a walkthrough. And given the length and the very good quality of the game, I would say that the experience was worth 40€.

The closest I've yet seen to capturing the escense of playing the consulting detective. The stories are for the most part well written, and with good mechanics to help you explore the crimescenes fully. The most impressive mechanic here is the system set up to "gather your thoughts", where you combine clues to create a basis for deduction and those deductions lead you towards the truth of the matter. The mechanic in itself is ingenious, but what really satisfied me is how the storytellers have utilized it, to the point where you can actually legitimately deduce the "wrong" answer, allowing you to further imerse yourself by making the needed deductions in between to lead you on the right path.

That being said, there is still room for improvement in how one investigates a crimescene, as this game as earlier games still carries the stigma of old point'n'click adventures where you don't find much outside of what is actually usefull. A bit of "clutter" when it comes to items would be a lovely way to let you do more of the detecting on your own.

A minor gripe as this game is a huge leap in the right direction for detective games.

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

Why?
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!

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
