Our videos of Sherlock Holmes

Our videos of Sherlock Holmes

This week, Europe is first in line to discover The Testament of Sherlock Holmes on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC. Some of you might think it looks too dated to deserve their attention, but you would be wrong. The four videos below will show you a few extracts of this pure adventure game, with some pretty hard puzzles to give you a hard time. For now, you will only see the Xbox 360 version of the game but we should have some PC videos as well in the days to come. If you have questions, ask away, I will try to answer in the comments.
Update: PC videos added (1080p/60fps).



Note: The game is actually compatible with a controller, but you need to be in-game to use it the first time. There is also a point and click mode if you prefer moving around your character the old-fashioned way with mouse and keyboard.

I noticed a skip button. Can you skip all the puzzles? Or is it limited?

Yes indeed, you can and I don't think it is limited.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth imagine a board meeting at konami, downtown tokyo. "could you get a focus group together and find out where we should take our franchies from here?". Producer leaves for the nearest pachinko parlor. (4 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Activision isn't too much better, with the exception of Blizzard games. Ubisoft is maybe adapting better. (14 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think publishers can miss the plot a bit too. I think EA is stuck between chasing trends and being stuck in sorta old ways. They need to figure out this market. (14 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth and it would work on consoles too. Elite Dangerous with it's advanced controls were still able to work reasonably well on a gamepad. Giving the game a dynamic campaign built around story elements. (16 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think giving one publisher exclusive rights to the license was probably a mistake. Sorta putting all your eggs in one basket. (16 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth a flight sim background (Lawrence Holland). But i can't imagine disney/ea being interested in doing a game like that (19 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth Another kind of SW game i'd love to play is a space-sim kind of game. sorta like a modern take on Tie-Fighter (or the X-Wing series in general). Those were games developed by a team that came from.. (21 minutes ago)
