It’s Elementary My Dear Watson, The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: The Testament of Sherlock Video Game Announced
This year, Sherlock Holmes makes a triumphant return in his very first adventure specially designed for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game consoles! All the mystery and intrigue will also be available on PC; check out the new screenshots for the first-ever glimpse of the game. I am a nut for these kind of mystery, who dun it kind of games. If the game is well written and the story is good I will let a lot of other stuff slide. With small developers like this you just never know, it could be a surprise gem or it could end up being just a bunch of garbage but we will hope for the best. The graphics actually look pretty solid and games like this don’t have to be action packed, they just need to be smart and challenging.
A mainstay genre of computer games, this new Holmes game is playable with a gamepad in a third person view, with revamped controls to suit the console. The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes will immerse gamers in 1898 London as they conduct an incredible investigation. All the evidence suggests our hero is the main suspect in a case involving theft, fraud and double-crossing. Unable to prove his own innocence, Holmes is rapidly losing London’s trust as doubt spreads through the city like wildfire. Even Doctor Watson’s faith in his friend begins to waver, as the famous detective flees Scotland Yard and raises further suspicion; prowling around at night, destruction of evidence… would Holmes go so far as to commit murder?
The complex and decidedly-mature storyline surrounds a particularly tricky investigation, in which each and every puzzle will challenge both insight and wits! As Sherlock Holmes, players will use the detective’s full repertoire: handle and inspect clues, reenact crimes and use the game’s new deduction system to draw your own conclusions. Choose your questioning approach to catch characters off guard and gather valuable information. Players are facing an open investigation, and must decide which leads to follow and which to ignore.
You are Sherlock Holmes, and this is your investigation! Live a thrilling adventure and foil an incredible conspiracy. The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: The Testament of Sherlock is coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in the Fall of 2011.
