I LOVE THIS GAME!I have had this game for little while. I have beaten the story my first time playing it. The second time I beat it I got the last four trophies. It's a great game! It's got two difficulty levels, normal and hard! I recommend this to everyone that loves puzzles, and Sherlock Holmes! 10's across the board! I can't wait to get Crimes and Punishments: Sherlock Holmes! I already pre-ordered it!

Extremely overlookedI have always been a fan of the point and click mystery games. While playing games like CoD, uncharted series are fun and nice graphics. The market is flooded with these type of games. I found Testament of sherlock holmes on a whim while I was at gamestop going through the used game section. I had not read any reviews on this game and decided with the 7 day return policy that gamestop has what do I have to lose. I am glad that I did, This game was better then I expected. Gameplay- the gameplay is what you would expect from any point and click although they do incorperate you changing characters to solve some puzzles. I was impressed with how far point and click have come. Graphics- I was a little let down by the graphics of this game but I think it was more because I have just played heavy rain and uncharted 3 which in my opinion have some of the best graphics right now. I would say the graphics and CGI were mid PS2 quality but they did not hamper the story line. Sound- the sound for this game was probably the biggest down. not because the acting sucked or bad scripting it was because many times through out the game sentences would cut off. and some parts seemed to not flow well. Lasting appeal- I but the lasting appeal kinda high because the game keeps you in your seat till the credits roll. although once you beat it the replay value not the best. over all this game is great for people that are looking for something different from the Shooter genre that the Gaming industry seems to be stuck in.

Simplicity itselfAside from "The Mummy's Tomb" this is pretty much the only Sherlock game I've had the chance to play. I've been waiting for this game since its release and it did not disappoint me. (Some may or may not disagree but I'm easy to please). Pros: Great graphics, great voice acting, great story, great game play. You feel as though you're playing a Sherlock Holmes story. Cons: Control lock up. By this I mean when you're running to cut time and you're trying to open a door, the character you're playing will keep running at the door instead of realizing he's at the door and opening it. Also when you open a door there are some moments when your character wont move through the door. You have to back up and re-walk through it. There was a glitch where as I was playing Holmes, he disappeard off screen (it only happened once). There was also a graphics glitch where as the level was loading up, the levels lay out disappeared for a second leaving only the people and the sky. As for the sound even though it was as great as it was, there are moments where when the characters are speaking, the last sound of the last word they say will sometimes repeat itself. Another con is the fact that a good number of the puzzled (at least to me) were too challenging and even vague in terms of how to solve it. Thank goodness for the 6th sense option lol. But with these minor problems aside it is a must have for all of the Holmesians out there who love a good fun mystery.
