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 The game would have felt out of date a decade ago.

  • Excerpt: Slowly but surely, ‘Sherlock Mania’ is sweeping the globe. Guy Ritchie’s films have already set the tone for a new age of expectations while current TV has elected for modern adaptations – Sherlock in the UK, and Elementary in the US (with Lucy Liu portraying Watson of all people). Recently we’ve been seeing a number of Sherlock games coming out of Frogwares’ woodwork with The Testament of Sherlock Holmes serving as their most anticipated series release yet, something...

The Testament of Sherlock Holmes Review | CSI 1898 Style

  • 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. The Deduction Board scenes work really well, and there are moments when you do feel like you're something of super sleuth, making it a shame the game relies on demented puzzles so much.
  • 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

Le Testament de Sherlock Holmes

  • Excerpt: Et si Sherlock Holmes s'était allié à Moriarty pour former le plus grand duo de malfaiteurs de tous les temps ? Bien que cette idée ne soit pas au centre du Testament de Sherlock Holmes, le scénario s'évertue à développer la personnalité de Holmes en le plaçant cette fois face à Scotland Yard. Sombre et mature, cette aventure profite également de plusieurs ajustements mais est-ce suffisant pour faire de cet épisode le meilleur de la saga initiée par Frogwares ?

  • Summary: I begynnelsen virket dette som et lovende eventyrspill. Godt gjennomført stemmeskuespill, gode og varierte miljø og spennende etterforskning satte tonen. Grafikken er kanskje ikke den vakreste der ute, og kontrollene er stive og tidvis vanskelig å håndtere. Likevel hadde det sin sjarm, og jeg ville se hva som skjedde videre etter hvert som etterforskningen åpenbarte en vev av ulike tråder som hadde en sammenheng jeg skulle få oppdage.

The Testament of Sherlock Holmes

  • Conclusion: En figur som Sherlock Holmes kalder for mange på stærke følelser. Han skal se ud på en bestemt måde, spilles af en bestemt skuespiller og historien skal være skåret efter et bestemt sæt af virkemidler. På den ene side deler jeg et sådan 'konservativt' syn på, hvad man kan tillade sig i en film eller et spil. På den anden side kan jeg også se behovet for at blive overrasket, for at historien og figuren går nye veje.
  • Pros: Ny drejning på figuren, dialog med formfuldendt engelsk
  • Cons: Tilfældig figurstyring, urealistisk lydside, karakterløse figurer
