Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

Hooked Gamers
22 April 2009
  • Conclusion: In all, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars would have be one of the best games to be released on the DS. The story is strong enough to make you want to continue in Huang’s shoes to seek revenge on those who killed his father and took the family’s ceremonial sword. Even after completing the main story, there are heaps of side missions and other tasks that will keep gamers entertained as they try and score the magical 100% completion score.

Sherlock Holmes - The Awakened

Strategy Informer
24 August 2008
  • Conclusion: You’ll pick Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened up only if you’re into the adventure genre. While the game does deliver a nice bundle of challenges and like a larger number of other adventure titles now it comes with a FPS feel, you could still do better if you looked hard enough. Frogwares efforts are comfortable and they’ve done a substantial job of injecting some excitement, even though it’s clouded by some troubles along the way.

Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened

The Gamers Temple
19 May 2008
  • Excerpt: The writings of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and H.P. Lovecraft have always shared one thing in common: they've stood the test of time and continue to draw new readers into their very loyal fan base. Other than that you've got two very different bodies of work. One is rooted in logic and deduction and set in Victorian London, while the other is set in small Twentieth Century New England towns at the nexus of ancient demonic forces.

Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened

Adventure Classic Gaming
1 May 2008
  • Excerpt: A watercolour sketch of a mist shrouded street gradually takes on solidity... and one of the most beloved sidekicks in mystery fiction arrives at the famous 221b Baker Street, home of the great—although irascible—detective, Sherlock Holmes. Holmes is bored. It has been too long since a case has engaged his interest, but events are about to lead him into a mystery not even he can foresee.

Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened

Thunderbolt Games
22 November 2007
  • Excerpt: You can tell Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened tries to stand out from the host of obscure adventure games, especially when the plot tells of our favourite Victorian detective travelling across the globe to stop crazy cultists from summoning this: Cthulhu – a fat, green, demony being that revels in slaughtering humans. Or, as Stephen King so elegantly puts it: a gigantic, tentacle-equipped, killer vagina from beyond space and time .

Not An Elementary Adventure

GIN
29 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Growing up I read a lot of the stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective Sherlock Holmes. And when he started showing up in computer games, I was pretty darn happy about it. Back then it was all point and click stuff, which became the staple interface of the adventure/puzzle game. So when I heard that Holmes had come back in an adventure game with a fully 3D world, it was like being a kid all over again.
