Conclusion: A budget game through and through, it still manages to tell an interesting story but the whole experience is brought down by technical limitations and uninspired puzzle solving. The game would have felt out of date a decade ago.

Conclusion: The Short Version: Boasting a story that draws you in, and lasting about 13 hours, the desire to see the gme through to the end is relatively strong. But a number of technical issues make the game more of a chore than it needs to be.

Summary: Der gute alte Sherlock Holmes wurde schon mit einigen Spiele-Adaptionen geehrt, doch mit „Das Testament des Sherlock Holmes“ darf man nach “Sherlock Holmes jagt Jack the Ripper” auch auf Xbox 360 und sogar Playstation 3 mal wieder in die Haut des Meisterdetektivs schlüpfen.
Pros: authentisches Sherlock Holmes-Feeling, viele Rätsel, unterhaltsame, mysteriöse Story, gute Synchronisation
Cons: Steuerung manchmal bockig, wird auf Dauer etwas eintönig, Wenig Interaktion in Dialogen
Summary: Laten we eerlijk zijn: op vlak van presentatie en besturing laat The Testament of Sherlock Holmes behoorlijk wat te wensen over. Maar doorzetters en vooral fans van puzzelgames en/of ’s werelds bekendste detective krijgen met deze game een behoorlijk interessante ervaring voorgeschoteld.
