The revitalization of Frogwares’ Sherlock Holmes series arrives this week on PC and consoles.
Well, I’m pretty excited to be quite honest. I’ve been a Holmes fan from way back before the Cumberbatch series (though it’s fast become one of my favorite incarnations of the character) and I’ve also been a follower of developer Frogwares and Focus Home’s series of games. As much as I’ve enjoyed past titles in the franchise though, Crimes & Punishments is like a revelation.
Completely new graphics and a catalog of new play mechanics that make the detective play way more like he’s been in novels and on television, this is a game that sort of looks like it reinvents the adventure game genre and makes it fit the character. Here’s to hoping that the final version lives up to the trailers.
Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments arrives tomorrow for the Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
