Sherlock Holmes Crimes and Punishments Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments may just be what gamers seeking a brain-buster ordered. It's very much a thinking man's game, as its launch trailer clearly shows. Throwing six types of crime cases at the player, including murders, disappearances and thefts, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments has you accompany the titular Holmes in a world of "hard to put your finger on" crime, with each case requiring a level of patience that can span intervals of 3 to 4 hours depending on your investigating skills. You will have total freedom in how you go about the investigations, but many moral dilemmas lay in your way. "Each case offers real freedom to players, who will have to make important moral choices instead of simply enforcing justice by the book," developer Frogwares said. The choices and decisions you make will be reflected in a series of realistic and unforeseen outcomes that will affect your in-game reputation: "You will have to bear the weight of your choices, as Crimes and Punishments offers an exciting system of actions/consequences that forces players to think before acting by giving true depth to every decision they make." As for how Holmes looks, Frogwares decided to go with a more contemporary design that is somewhat different from what Sir Arthur Conan Doyle portrayed in his novels. Do you like it? The launch trailer, which can be watched below, showcases a few investigation scenarios in which Holmes takes statements and gathers evidence, reading his enemies’ movements and doing his "thing" in an attempt to solve a series of serious crimes. Watch it and let us know what you think. Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments is the first game in a series of Sherlock Holmes games to be built on Unreal Engine 3. It is playable on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. [youtube]
