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

    KORNdog and i say that as someone who believed half life 2 is still the greatest FPS ever made. but it's still an issue that plagues a lot of games. horizon recently was terrible at this with the audio logs. (3 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but that's a common problem with maintaining player control even when characters are talking at you. you get distracted and start fannying around. (4 minutes ago)

    KORNdog @MrWhite: eh, i'll give you alex vance, but i don't really find any of the others particularly well written. and i'd argue throwing boxes while you're supposed to be engrosse in story is bad design. (5 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Sometimes the less you know about a character too = more interesting. Like G-Man. He pops up now and again being a creepy bastard. Thats what makes him interesting. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Plus the fact you were messing about with boxes is a good thing, no? Game first, story and characters second is my motto. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Come on Korn, you know thats a horseshit statement you made. Before Naughty Dog and Bioware with Mass Effect, there was Alyx Vance. She may be a bit dated these days, but back then... (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: i guess i missed it. i was too busy running about all over the place throwing boxes around as my mute husk. lol (2 Hours ago)
