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.

An outstanding murder mystery adventure. I didn't expect a lot from a Sherlock Holmes game but it sure as heck blown all that doubt away. If you like games like L.A, Noire you wont find it here but you will find a very well made Sherlock Holmes adventure. Every case feels like something the late Sir Arthur Doyle would write which is an outstanding feet.

10/10

It's a good game. The ability to decide whodunit is an awesome feature. However, while Testament of Sherlock Holmes was occasionally very confusing and difficult, I felt this game went too far in the opposite direction, where most of the puzzles and clues were fairly simple. Having six cases to solve is a good thing (the train one was my favorite), though it didn't allow for a deep plot to unravel like in Testament. Regardless, it's still a fun game and improved graphics are always appreciated. While the environments may just be average, characters' faces, in particular, are very detailed.

I picked up this game while looking for an old school point and click. It's not that at all. It's more like an interactive story with a few added case solving mechanics and mini games. This will really annoy a lot of die hard fans of the old Sierra or LucasArts games so you should really look at a video walthrough of the first few minutes before getting it. Usually I'd put myself in that class but I found the sheer entertainment value of this game is one of the best I've come across.

Best points:
Excellent visuals and voice acting,
Properly laugh out loud moments alongside the more serious plots.
20-25 hours of gameplay. Worth the high price.
Perfectly designed characters. Whoever scripted Watson is a genius.
Interesting and fun mechanics for deduction analysis and a few other minigames

Bad points
Very little challenge in puzzles or deduction
The transfer time between locations is painfully slow
No save games. You can replay chapter endings but otherwise nothing
Some minigames have horribly clunky interfaces.
Some of the pathing is a bit irritating. Most often Watson gets in your way and its a fight to get aound him to where your next clue is.

If you want a bit more detail...
The only people who I would advise to stay away from this are those solely interested in puzzle based old school point and click games.

The game is made up of 6 chapters, each based around an original Holmes story so they inherit some good writing. In each you walk Holmes around crime related scenes picking up clues, questioning suspects and doing research. This gives you thoughts which you have to link together correctly to make deductions that you tie together to solve a case. It is a fun mechanic but the deductions are sometimes too obvious. o=One or two are nonsensical. There's a bit of embarrassingly bad science in some minigames too but if you can get over that then the dialogue, characters and plot make this really good entertainment.

A huge improvement on Testament, feels far more like Holmes in gameplay, though Watson is still a bit of a hapless lapdog. The multi-case arc was really interesting and lent some variety and intrique. Hoping for some DLC.

I wish the cases were connected, but other than a lack of a connected story, this game is great. I would just bust a case out whenever I felt like sleuthing for a bit, rock it for an hour or so and solve the case, feel like a genius and go to bed. Rinse, wash, repeat!

Overall - recommendation

Graphics - good. Maybe my expectations were just lowered but it's a genuinely pretty game with a strong art style. I particularly like the attention to faces. Also the first person mode means that you feel a lot more immersed in the world.

Writing - solid. If you're a fan of the stories you'll enjoy the mysteries here as they're not only pretty interesting in their own write, but they also feel very much like something Doyle would have written himself.

Mechanics - fun. They can feel a touch contrived at times (press F for imagination) but they're free flowing enough to make you feel like a detective. It's worth emphasising that for the most part the mechanics compliment your own thinking and puzzle solving, rather than just doing it all for you.

Misc - voice acting is.... peculiar, it is often wooden, and over affected. The game would benefit massively from more talented voice actors, especially because you have to listen to people talk so much. It's not game ruining, but it feels like a missed opportunity for a game that works so hard to immerse you in its world. For the most part, it's not game ruining, but it damages the game's otherwise strong effort at immersion.

Final thoughts - Fancy a story driven game? But you're bored of shooting people in deserts/sewers/deserted cities? Yet you still want the good graphics and immersive perspective typical of the AAA genres? This is a good choice. Especially if you're a fan of Holmes.

Оцінюю гру у 8/10

Плюси і що сподобалось:
+ Цілком відтворена атмосфера того часу
+ Українська локалізація (текст)
+ Початкові справи є досить цікаві і не очевидні
+ Є можливість робити дедуктивні висновки самому(навіть хибні) і приходити до різних висновків про справу

Мінуси:
- Гра є досить короткою, не більше 10-12 годин проходження
- Деякі справи є занадто прямолінійні і очевидні, про що свідчить статистика в кінці, наприклад. цю справу вирішили аналогічно 95% гравців

Короткий огляд:
Чудовий детектив у стилі сера Артура Конана Дойла, в якому гравець відчуває себе в ролі найвідомішого детектива в історії літератури та кіно. Найкращий епізодний детектив, який я грав.

[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.
