The Testament Of Sherlock Holmes Review

PlayDevil
5 October 2012
  • Summary: " The Testament Of Sherlock Holmes " has classic characters involved in a pretty gripping and increasingly interesting storyline. But unfortunately the game engine is one of, if not the worst I have seen this generation. With fogging and pop-in that would shame many a N64 game, coupled with wooden animation and hilariously poor physics, the game looks a mess, despite a fine art style.

The Testament of Sherlock Holmes

26 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Opium dens. Dilapidated amusement parks. Hospital morgues. The top-hatted Sherlock and his loyal BFF Watson have seen it all — usually under grim circumstances involving murders and assorted detached body parts. And for gamers who live to poke, prod, deduce, and puzzle-solve in old-timey London locales of varying seediness, Testament doesn’t disappoint.
  • Pros: + An interesting twist on Holmes’ fiction and universe; plenty of clever puzzles., + The “skip puzzle” option keeps the pace faster than that in most puzzle-oriented adventures.
  • Cons: ? Suspension-of-disbelief alert: Can a basset hound really trigger those switches?

The Testament of Sherlock Holmes (Xbox 360)

14 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Despite my last experience with Frogwares’ take on the famous Sherlock Holmes , I’d be lying if I claimed to be indifferent about their newest release. Their last console release, Sherlock Holmes Verses Jack The Ripper, was an incredibly flawed adventure game that wowed me with its excellent, thought-provoking story and irritated me to no end with its frustratingly difficult puzzles.
  • Pros: Improved puzzle design, decent voice acting
  • Cons: Fan fiction quality story, awkward animations, spotty object interaction

The Testament of Sherlock Holmes

Console Monster
4 September 2012
  • Summary: In recent years we have seen a lot of iterations of Holmes and Watson. Robert Downy Jr. and Jude Law have starred in two Hollywood movies, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman have given us a modern day English retelling of classic stories and most recently Johnny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu have brought a unique and interesting modern spin of a drug rehabilitated Holmes and a female, Joan Watson to television screens.
  • Pros: Dark and adult storyline, Big sense of achievement when solving puzzles
  • Cons: Slightly low budget production values, Some puzzles were incredibly difficult and frustrating

The Testament of Sherlock Holmes

  • Excerpt: In this, the busiest time of the year for video game releases, we are inundated with fast-paced, Hollywood blockbuster-styled video games, filled to the brim with epic set pieces, sweat-inducing quick time events, jaw-dropping graphics, and a non-stop roller coaster ride of excitement. So it’s interesting to see Atlus publishing a game so distinctly opposite of everything else, right in the middle of one of the most action-packed seasons of the year.

The Testament of Sherlock Holmes

19 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Franske Frogwares har skabt sig lidt af et navn med deres serie af Sherlock Holmes adventurespil. I en vis grad af ubemærkethed (i hvert fald i forhold til det brede mainstream marked), har de udgivet fem Sherlock Holmes spil og er nu klar med deres sjette – den mest dystre fortælling om den berømte detektiv til dato. Det påstår de i hvert fald selv.
  • Pros: Glimrende historie, Rigtig gode minispil, Solidt stemmeskuespil
  • Cons: Overfladiske personer, Til tider direkte uhyggelig grim grafik, Langsomt

Op speurneuzentocht met Sherlock Holmes

27 September 2012
  • Summary: Al van kinds af aan was ik een enorme fan van Sherlock Holmes' verhalen, 's werelds beste detective. Ik verslond alle boeken en begon me te hechten aan de excentrieke speurneus en zijn trouwe kameraad Dr. Watson. De laatste jaren is Holmes prominent aanwezig in zowel films als op tv. Ook zijn er door de jaren heen vele videogames over hem verschenen. The Testament of Sherlock Holmes is inmiddels al de zevende game in de serie die wordt ontwikkeld door Frogwares.
  • Pros: Interessant verhaal, Sfeer zit zeer goed, Puzzels zijn erg uitdagend....
  • Cons: …. Maar soms frustrerend, Verschrikkelijke graphics, Bugs, Beetje klungelige besturing

Il Testamento di Sherlock Holmes - Recensione

Everyeye Network
24 September 2012
  • Summary: Il Testamento di Sherlock Holmes farà contenti tutti gli affezionati delle avventure grafiche; non è il classico punta-e-clicca, ed oltre a presentare un piacevole dinamismo nelle fasi di esplorazione, propone un gameplay comunque ricco di possibilità: raccolta degli indizi, dialoghi e indagini, formulazione delle ipotesi. Le atmosfere vittoriane fanno poi da cornice ad un trama raffinata, che vi terrà incollati allo schermo fino alla fine.

Expert Review

  • Conclusion: Jag skulle vilja ge Sherlock Holmes ett högre betyg men jag tycker helt ärligt inte att det är tillräckligt imponerande rent tekniskt. Spelet är alldeles för buggigt för att vara en slutgiltig produkt och kontrollerna skulle kunna vara betydligt smidigare. Det är också allt negativt jag tänker säga om Sherlock Holmes, resten är elementärt. Spelet erbjuder dig en av årets bästa och mest gripande berättelser.
  • Pros: • Makalösa röstskådespelare • Gripande atmosfär • Stor variation av pussel
  • Cons: • Buggigt • Klumpiga kontroller
