With a choice of first or third-person action, Sherlock Holmes joins the Focus Multimedia catalogue of games....

All in all, Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened is a highly enjoyable, creepy but enjoyable experience. That almost dead-end moment (thank god for multiple save slots) was a pain and I could have done without that. If you are a fan of the previous Sherlock...

Sherlock is back in this third adventure from Frogwares, and it is by far the best yet in this series. It is almost exactly what an adventure game featuring that greatest of sleuths should be, a thrilling mystery with intelligent dialogue and period...

Arthur Conan Doyles Sherlock Holmes and H.P. Lovecrafts Cthulhu mythos might seem like strange bedfellows at first. After all, the coke-snorting, bee-loving, violin-playing sleuth would no doubt have little common ground with the deranged...

Sherlock Holmes is about as well known a character as Oliver Twist or Captain Kirk or Bart Simpson. His exploits have enthralled generations of kids and adults alike. When Sir Arthur Conan Doyle came up with his cap wearing, drug addicted detective,...

The adventure genre is certainly getting on with the times now with realistically very little to be adding something spicy in the mix. Of course a title pivots centrally on its plotline because, well, if the story stinks why bother solving that...

London 1894 Watson sitzt am Tisch und redet bis er auf einmal merkt, dass ihm Holmes gar nicht zu hört.„Was ist los Holmes?“, fragte er. „Die Langeweile mein Lieber, die Langeweile“, antwortet Holmes. Watson entgegnet:...

International Review By GamePlayer on 70

Hmm, märkligt. På pappret är Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened en dålig idé som borde vara dömt att hamna i medelspelsträsket. Frogwares förra försök att digitalisera världens mest anrika detektiv var...

International Review By FZ.se on 60

Tänd pipan, ta på rocken, freebasa opiumet och börja kalla dina vänner dear: här ska lösas mysterier som om det vore 1894. Sir Arthut Conan Dolyes värld går ihop med H. P. Lovecrafts och ger föda åt ett spel där Sherlock Holmes står öga mot öga med...

International Review By Level 7 on 65

Arrogans kommer i många former. Det finns högfärdig, spydig, bara dryg och många andra. Ibland kombineras den med knivskarp träffsäkerhet så det blir sarkastiskt underhållande. Jeremy Brett, från tv-serien om Sherlock Holmes inspelad under 80-...

International Review By TweakUp on

Så er det atter tid til at finde hatten og piben frem for vi skal på eventyr med Sherlock Holmes og hans trofaste makker Dr. Watson. Vi skal følge de 2 gennem flere lande i jagten på mysteriet om Cthulhu, som vi kender fra H.P. Lovecraft, i et flot...
