Holmes is on the case
It's pretty impressive how Frogwares keep pumping out Sherlock Holmes games, with impressive titles like Nemesis and Jack the Ripper making fine choices for adventure fans. This one is a little different though, with a greater emphasis on action, which might upset those of a more cerebral nature, but if you want a mix of puzzles and thrills, it remains a good bet. As you might expect, you play Holmes as he becomes involved in a series of seemingly unconnected cases which will take him on a dark ride through Victorian London but which eventually pull together in a shattering conclusion. What follows is a mixture of classic Holmes gameplay, where you explore the various seedy locations of the city while questioning suspects and gathering clues, but there are also several action sequences added in, so you'll be punching, ducking and diving like Robert Downey Jr. There are puzzles here but there are also lots of minigames to play, which does give this a more cinematic feel, but which also proves to be something of a divisive aspect. If you don't like action and want to solve puzzles instead, then this is definitely not for you, especially as many of the puzzles aren't overly logical and often don't fit in well with the gameplay. The action is satisfying if you're into that sort of thing, and really makes you feel like you're in a movie but there's perhaps a bit too much. The story is a bit on the short side, so you're not going to be playing this forever but the visuals are splendid, and overall, if you know what you're getting into, you should have fun here.
