I completely & enthusiasticaly endorse 'Sherlock Holmes The Awakened'
8 February 2013
Summary: This was the third Sherlock Holmes game that I have played, and while I was familiar with the characters and the basic game format, nothing could have prepared me for the incredible adventure that awaited me in the 'The Awakened'. WOW - this game rocks! In a late 19th century London England kind of way, that is. Holmes & Watson embark on a most thrilling investigation, which kept me totally engrossed in the plot.
Summary: I must agree with some of the reviews - the puzzles are... well... either too easy (you just follow the plot and do whatever Homes says) or make no sense whatsoever. If you are looking for an adventure where you solve an inventive riddle using your mind - look some place else: this rendition of Holmes has no such puzzles.
Summary: What is it with this Cthulhu character anyway? Now even Sherlock Holmes has to meet him. Just pronouncing its name makes me feel like I have a mouthful of sunflower seeds. Well, this LFA concerns Holmes and Watson first discovering that the foreign-born servants of British people are going missing. From there comes a long and twisted story of a cult that worships the aforementioned demon, and involves travel to Switzerland, New Orleans and Scotland.
great game loads of challenges and a good story line full of mystory

Summary: If you are one of those individuals, whose only fun in gaming is to see how many creatures or enemy’s you can shoot, then this is not the game for you. However if you’re a person of average intelligence and have the ability to understand the English language enough to decipher clues and solve puzzling challenges you may find this game very enjoyable. The theme is well organized and very provocative making it hold your attention until the final scene and climax.
Summary: Okay, so I might be in the minority here when I say this game was one of the best Sherlock Holmes games I've played. The horror elements are a nice touch, and the game itself seemed to have a balance between intuitive logic and just plain challenging. I'm going to start off with the controls and frame rate issues - I never had any of those.
Reminds me of why I am not an adventure game player

Summary: The Awakened, and I suspect all the other Sherlock Holmes mystery games are similar in such awkward gameplay. An adventure gamer who likes point and click and letting the game cutscenes take over the gameplay may find such games worthwhile. If you are a 'shooter' fan absolutely stay away from these prehistoric excuses for a game.
Summary: I HAVE A DELL 2400 AND A MONITER X-P. I WAS ABLE TO DOWNLOAD THE GAME,BUT IT CAME UP WITH A MESSAGE THAT MY COMPUTER CLOSED SO AS NOT TO DAMAGEE IT. I COULD NOT PLAY THE GAME. ANOTHER SHERLOCK HOLMES GAME LET ME DOWNLOAD AND PLAY BUT IT WOULD NOT LET ME SAVE.
