Review - Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments"Incredible, Stupendous and Remarkable!"
Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments is definitely one of the best detective games out there. The backstories for each case is unique and solid. I'm not a Sherlock Holmes fan but after palying this game, I am now. This is my first Sherlock Holmes game and by far, I have enjoyed every minute of it. From the first case to the last case, my mind was boggled and amazed. Some of the cases maybe rather obvious but there are also some where you get to really think who was culprit or how he/she did it. The game also has a lot of minigames from interrogation to looking for clues to special cutscenes that require player interaction.
+ Great Graphics
+ Great Soundtracks
+ Great Voiceovers
+ Interesting characters and cases
+ Has a lot of gameplay (a lot of minigames)
+ The mind boggling marale choices at the end of each case
+ A choice of whether you play on 3rd Person POint of view or FPS
+ Long loading screens (well, actually it's in the form of travelling from place to place)
I haven't played the other Sherlock Holmes games but for newbies to the genre, it's a good experience to start with this. I highly recommend this game to those who are really a big fan of Sherlock Holmes and to those who love detective games that does not only involve point n' click find the object game but other gameplay as well.
