  • 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 The game would have felt out of date a decade ago.

The Testament of Sherlock Holmes Review | CSI 1898 Style

Dealspwn
5 October 2000
  • 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.
  • Pros: Some nice sleuthing moments, Solid story, Better than the dubious Guy Ritchie movies
  • Cons: Awkward controls and glitches will test your patience, Some of the puzzles are not explained at all, So many tortuous locks, safes and drawers to puzzle through

  • Pros: authentisches Sherlock Holmes-Feeling, viele Rätsel, unterhaltsame, mysteriöse Story, gute Synchronisation

Review: The Testament of Sherlock Holmes

psx-sense.nl
22 October 2012
  • 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.
  • Pros: Knap verhaal, Sterke puzzels
  • Cons: Zwakke presentatie, Zwakke besturing, Ontzettend traag spelverloop
