3.0 out of 5 stars Beauty and the Beast October 30, 2007
Verified Purchase
The beauty: This game has wonderful atmosphere; the water effects are stunning; the actors are good; the story is interesting

The beast: it is so linear it hurts; you can't go ahead and pick up something you know you are going to need; once I typed an answer using the spelling in the clues and it wasn't accepted

I don't mind spending a lot of time solving puzzles; but I do mind spending a lot of time trying to figure out how to tell the game what I want to do. Not that this is new. It was the same in the old text adventures where you were in a maze of twisty passages all alike. Deja vu.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sherlock Holmes and the Old Ones October 8, 2007
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
A typical adventure game where as Sherlock Holmes you must pick up various items to solve puzzles, and find clues by looking around the map and clicking on areas where an icon lights up. Like the Longest Journey or Dreamfall, the storyline is more important than gameplay in Sherlock Holmes the Awakened.

For most the game you play as Sherlock Holmes in the late 1890's. The game takes place after Holmes' "death" at the Reichbad Falls, and his later re-apperance. Your task as Holmes seems simple at first. Watson wants you to chat with a patient of his. The patient reveals that his Maori servant has run off and from there the chase is on!

The plot line is a bit complicated but begins to make sense as the game progresses. What is truly interesting is the Cthulhu element to the game! It is well done and suitably mysterious. People with no idea about Lovecraftian lore might in fact be totally baffled by some of the events in the game. For those who are well versed in the Old Ones, the story line is a particular treat with plenty of homages to Lovecraft.

Gameplay is smooth enough but has a few issues. Namley, there is no bobbing as you walk. Much like the old first person shooter games, motion sickness can occur. Most of the puzzles involving objects are easy enough, but at times you need to double back to areas and pick up items you weren't allowed to pick up before. It would have been nicer if the game spared you the doubling back because whenever one gets stuck in the game, they can't help but wonder..."Do I need to go back somewhere?" Usually the answer is "no", but not always. At one point during the game, Holmes has to chase after a thief.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this game February 10, 2008
I really enjoyed this game. I am a frequent PC game player and I can say that this is at the top of my list.

The puzzles were not obscure and nonsensical like many games. I used what I learned from the game and didn't have to rely heavily on "cheat sights" like I have with other games to solve the puzzles.

One glitch is that you have to move just right to go some places.

I really enjoyed the eerie atmosphere and the gore. The graphics are great and the story is easy to follow. Great locations. Quick moving. I recommend this highly if you love a good spooky mystery.

2.0 out of 5 stars Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz March 28, 2009
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I can't believe that they're still making games that are sooooo linear! This is supposed to be Sherlock Holmes, but he can't even get to a bookstore a block away without asking a cop for directions. Basicly, you'll spend most of your time finding clues, then searching about aimlessly for the one thing that will FINALLY trigger the next scene. It took me HOURS just to get Sherlock to go back to his house and run experiments. I measured and re-measured footprints, did everything I could think of and went to 3 cheat sites to finally figure out what the trigger was. Ridiculous that you can't even get a great detective to enter his own home without the dog and pony show. I'm not new to mystery games, and I have never had as much bother and boredom with any as I have with this one.

The graphics are pretty decent, although the townspeople do seem to enjoy walking about in circles.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sherlock Holmes meets Hostel December 28, 2007
My son bought this for me because I love mystery games. I think he was anticipating something like a creepy Nancy Drew-type game, but the Awakening goes way past creepy.
There are frequent and graphic scenes of torture, mutilation, dismemberment, murder and suicide. Granted, the graphics aren't good enough to make any of this truly frightening, but the ideas introduced turned my stomach a few times. Parts are just gruesome. Toss in alcoholism, prostitution and a passing reference from a madam about Holmes and Watson "giving each other a hand" and it's a game that lives up to its M rating.
Be prepared to work at this game. The puzzles aren't that difficult, but the linear play is infuriating. After spending a great deal of time searching every nook and cranny, you have to go back over the entire scene because you forgot to look at a footprint! It doesn't matter that you've seen four other prints, or that this particular print offers no new information--if you didn't "notice" it, you can't progress in the game.
The nit-picking often distracted me from the storyline. Perhaps this is why the game seemed more like unconnected scenes of gratuitous violence rather than a cohesive story to me. Still, now that I've finished the game and gone over the story details, I have to say that at least 80% of the gore is just that-gratuitous. Ditto with the adult themes.
Holmes and Watson are true to character and I found the acting rather good. It's a shame that they were put into such deplorable circumstances.
