At a point where I'm getting a bit bored of killing anonymous NPCs for no better reason than that they're there, Sherlock Holmes was a timely release. I played the (underrated) predecessors and this is no doubt an improvement on their gameplay. I was impressed; this is a polished, enjoyable sleuthing romp. Once I got started, I couldn't stop.

But it is all over very quickly. Early cases are complex and tricky to fathom but later ones are simpler if you've found all the clues. There is an overarching narrative but you never really engage with it. When it's done, it's done, and other than checking if you got everything right, there's not a lot left to think about.

The interface is much improved, especially the deductions bit where you put clues together and work out what could and could not have happened. Investigation is mostly intuitive and fun and there's a realistic sense of not getting all the answers - there are red herrings with no real significance to muddy the deductive waters. Crucially the voice acting is mostly superb and the storytelling within cases is excellent. It feels very much like Sherlock Holmes.

Downside is that the game hints at depth that it doesn't achieve. Later cases are increasingly linear, a set of puzzles to solve to reach a conclusion rather than a set of facts to examine and reexamine. There are some real highlights (the missing train and the Roman baths) but cases inbetween are shorter and simpler by comparison and the finale is disappointingly straightforward - Holmes does most of the thinking for you and some of the most suspicious characters are not even suspects.

Overall this is definitely worth getting. However I'd wait until it comes down in price (likely) or they release some decent DLC for it (less likely), as at present it feels more like a tasty bar snack than it does a main meal.

Crimes & Punishments is a puzzle adventure game where you solve crimes as the consultant detective Sherlock Holmes. Much like it's predecessor Testament of Sherlock Holmes it does have a few issues that have not been fixed but the core gameplay has seen improvements that make it a very fun title all the same.

The game plays out with Holmes and Watson investigating six different cases. None of the cases is linked, but each is rather unique taking Holmes to various locations such as botanic gardens, railway stations, streets and houses. It's not an open victorian london, but the variety is kind of nice.

During each case as you explore and examine crime scenes Holmes gathers evidence to his log which you can try and link together to form deductions which point to who could be guilty giving many different potential endings to each case though only one is truly correct. I really loved this aspect of the game as in some ways it's easier to follow where the evidence points than in Testament and yet you still have to think to work out how plausible things are, and whether you should carry on digging for evidence.

While looking for evidence there are quite a few mini games such as using Holmes's laboratory to mix chemicals, analyse dirt or lock pick doors etc. These mini games can be skipped if you get stuck, they aren't particularly difficult just a few aren't explained well.

The game involves a lot of traveling from location to location. The load screens are pretty cool, showing Holmes either smoking or reading in a carriage. The problem is occasionally you have to go to an area just for one quick thing which requires two load screens there and back and they take a surprisingly long time, even to load quite small areas.

I wasn't expecting a whole lot from this game. I bought it for ten euro in the playstation sale but boy was I pleasantly surprised!

STORY:
I really liked all of the investigations and the stories really kept me hooked. I found myself really getting into it and wanting to know who the real perp was. I only got it wrong once and was sickened with myself.

GAMEPLAY:
I had to take a star off here. It's a little restrictive. You can't really go anywhere your not supposed to. The game rewards exploration to some extend but there are no extra treasures to find. I loved Sherlock's special vision. It saved me wasting time in areas where there was nothing to be found. If you liked LA Noire then you will also love the interrogation's in this game. You have to study each of the characters to find clues as to what type of person they are. Then you must form deductions your head to find the killer. One issue I did have was that you can be "wrong" but often the wrong answers also makes sense. But hey it just gives you another chance to play.

CONTROLS:
Straight forward. No problems.

REPLAY VALUE:
There are numerous outcomes to each crime so plenty of reasons to replay.

TO BUY OR NOT TO BUY:
If you can get it on sale, then yes. It's enjoyable but not worth 60 euros.

I really enjoyed this having purchased for a £12 download and that's probably about the right price point due to length and lack of replay-ability. Played over a whole weekend and enjoyed it from start to finish.
