Sherlock Holmes causes a stir! For over ten years, millions of players have donned the hat and magnifying glass of the world's greatest detectives, in a dozen games for PC and handheld systems. This year, Sherlock Holmes makes a triumphant return.

1898, London. All the evidence of police investigation points at Sherlock Holmes as the main suspect in a case involving theft, fraud and double-crossings. Unable to prove his own innocence, Holmes is rapidly losing London's trust as doubt spreads through the city like wildfire. Even Doctor Watson's faith in his friend begins to waver, as the famous detective flees Scotland Yard and raises further suspicion; prowling around at night, destruction of evidence... would Holmes go so far as to commit murder?

A mainstay genre of console games, The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes was specially built to display complex scenes and high-resolution textures. The game features lush, captivating environments and truly raises the bar for adventure games.

The complex and decidedly-mature storyline surrounds a particularly tricky investigation, in which each and every puzzle will challenge both insight and wits! As Sherlock Holmes, you will use the detective's full repertoire: handle and inspect clues, reenact crimes and use the game's new deduction system to draw your own conclusions. Choose your questioning approach to catch characters off-guard and gather valuable information. Players are facing an open investigation, and must decide which leads to follow and which to ignore.

You are Sherlock Holmes, and this is your investigation. Live a thrilling adventure and foil an incredible conspiracy!
  • One of the biggest licenses in adventure gaming
  • Confront Sherlock's most dangerous opponent: Moriarty!
  • Dozens of exciting mysteries and puzzles to solve
  • Interact with dozens of characters, gather clues and use special tools to solve an incredible case!

Here is an "investigation game" that finally feels that you're the one that's actually investigating. In recent years, there's been a tendency for the actual gameplay to take a back seat to the cinematic presentation of games, such as LA Noire, a game that's all style no substance (though still impressive).

Yes, Sherlock Holmes may not be as pretty or polished as big-budget adventures, but it offers quite a challenge that demands your complete attention, and quite a variety of puzzles and clues to find that really provide a sense of achievement that hasn't really been felt in the genre since the early Broken Sword titles. Glad I found this gem.

 good but could of been so much better

not much to say about this game the story line is good and keeps you playing the puzzles are good as well but if you fail so many times on a puzzle mainly 3 times you can skip it and the computer does it for you which is a shame that's not the only let down with the game the controls are awful it really does take some time to get used to and the graphics aint that much better either and now and then the sound will cut off when you have been playing so long i asked my mate who is also playing the game at the moment and he said the same thing happens to his game so you need to reset it which gets annoying after a while.
