Editor's description

The next Sherlock Holmes title, "Crimes & Punishments", will build on this success and marks a significant step forward for the series, as it incorporates important changes both in terms of the production and gameplay experience.

Unlike the previous Sherlock Holmes investigations, you won’t merely be following the great detective as he conducts his enquiries; in "Crimes & Punishments" you actually play Sherlock Holmes and carry out your own investigations; several in fact, because in this game you won’t just have to solve one, but six high-profile, gripping and varied cases. Murders, disappearances, spectacular thefts and sensational cases will sometimes take you to the realms of the fantastic in this stunning game of investigation in the fine tradition of the Conan Doyle novels.

Each case will offer a large degree of freedom to make moral choices that go beyond merely seeing that justice is done. Your decisions will have a real influence on the game both in terms of your character’s reputation and the consequences that arise in a realistic and sometimes unexpected way. You should therefore be aware of the gravity of your choices and decisions throughout the game, because “Crimes & Punishments” has an intriguing system of actions/consequences that will force you to weigh everything up very carefully before acting, and therefore lends an interesting depth to all your decisions.

Our aim is therefore to offer you a unique experience, and “Crimes & Punishments” has up to 10 different endings for each of the great cases in the game.
