Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360

Set in London in 1898, all evidence of an on-going police investigation points to Sherlock Holmes as the main suspect in a case involving theft, fraud, and murder. Unable to prove his own innocence, Holmes rapidly loses the trust of London. When even the loyalty of his closest friend, Doctor Watson, begins to waver, Sherlock is forced to flee Scotland Yard and begin his investigation to prove his innocence, confronting his most dangerous opponent in the process: Moriarty!

Use the famous detective’s full repertoire of skills to solve puzzles and decide which leads to follow up and which to ignore as you build your case in this open investigation.

Key Features

  • A dark and mature storyline takes the Sherlock Holmes series to the next level. Lead your investigation and build your own conclusions.
  • A brand new graphics engine specially designed to display complex scenes and high resolution textures. Improved light effects and new animations and moves truly raises the bar for console adventure games, helping to create a London faithfully reproduced.
  • Dozens of puzzles and riddles with controls especially designed for consoles: collect objects, interact with dozens of characters, and use special tools throughout your investigation. Once you have collected your clues and reports, use the Deduction Tool at the end of each chapter to draw your own conclusions.
  • An intuitive help system is available in case you are unable to find the solution to a particularly difficult puzzle.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's simplicity itself 25 Aug 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Testament of sherlock holmes is a story driven puzzle game that relies heavily on logic and deduction to progress. Its a game that plays like a point and click adventure thats been adapted to a third/first person perspective. Sherlock is set the task of proving his innocence in a case involving theft fraud and double crossing, there are many twists and turns as the story unfolds.

It is Set in London in 1898 where you travel to various locations to gather clues to solve the case, there are many items you will pick up and its down to you to decipher there meaning, the game uses a deduction board in certain instances which offers multiple choice, and you must use logic to determine what has occured.

The puzzles are rather challenging but after a little time has elapsed you can skip them if you wish (this forfeits the achievement), the games length is around 15-20 hrs approximately depending on how well you fair with the puzzles, for the achievement enthusiasts 1000g is easily obtainable providing no puzzles are skipped and all documents are collected.

2.0 out of 5 stars Glitchy, My Dear Watson 17 Jan 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
`Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper' was not the best game to grace consoles this generation, but in the limited world of 360/PS3 adventure games it had a good story and the puzzles were fun. For this reason I had some hopes for `The Testament of Sherlock Holmes', developers Focus had another year of experience to build on their last game and provide an even better experience, so why is it so much worse? For one thing, the story is nowhere near as compelling as `Ripper'. In most cases a story does not really matter during a game, but as `Testament' is an adventure title that slowly moves along, it is of paramount importance that the gamer is drawn in. You are not and Holmes fans will also be upset by the disregard for some of the character's cannon.

The game is best when playing the puzzles themselves, they are tricky, but in most cases achievable. The game screams its PC routes in the style of puzzle, as they have not evolved much from the days of `The 7th Guest'. It is during some of the puzzles and the majority of the traditional adventure aspects of the game that the PC base damages the console game. Moving around the screen with a control pad is difficult and delicately moving parts of puzzles is at times impossible. Focus appear to have done the bare minimum needed to convert the game onto console, so you are left at times with a glitchy mess that is hard to move around in. Not good enough.

This lack of effort continues in the graphics and cut scenes; both would not look out of place in a 2005 PC game - unacceptable for a full RRP console game. All could have been forgiven had the story interested me a bit more, but as it was, only the puzzles detracted from the tedium of the story and annoyance of the controls. This is a game suitable only for those adventure fans desperate for a game to try.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good play through and an easy 1000G 20 Nov 2012
By Dover8
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The Testament of Sherlock Holmes gives you exactly what you would expect, a detective came with added puzzle solving. Much like a combination of the CSI games and Myst.

The plot is interesting, and there are some great gameplay features such as the deduction board.

However, you will find yourself frustrated at points, and you can really only play it once, other than to pick up any missed achievements. That said, it is an easy 1000G for getting through the whole game provided you don't skip any parts.

4.0 out of 5 stars The game's afoot, ie very good! 14 Nov 2012
By James K
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This XBox 360 game is an excellent example of the detective game genre. Holmes and Watson have to find and analyse clues, deduce their meanings, outwit people in conversation, and complete many puzzles in order to solve the mystery.

There is an excellent storyline to this game, wherein Holmes himself is suspected of being the criminal mastermind. All of the "chapters" to the story are well thought out, with some good dialogue from the characters to progress the story without too many cutscenes.

The gameplay is very straightforward, and the game helps the player by marking clues that have been seen, those that have not been found yet, actions that can still be performed, characters that can be spoken to. The characters even have a Sixth Sense, as even with the assistance some clues can be hard to find. None of this detracts from the gameplay, in fact it very much helps the story to move along at a decent pace. Deduction boards confirm when you have reached the correct conclusions, and puzzles can be skipped after you have been trying them for a while without success.

Skipping puzzles can lead to missed achievements, but most of the achievements seem to be picked up through straightforward gameplay.

This is an excellent game, fans of other detective games like the CSI series, or the earlier Sherlock games, will find a lot here to enjoy.

If you've played Sherlock Holmes Vs Jack the ripper then you'll know what to expect, this is more of the same, a fun game if a little short-lived, and dated.
