Hopefully this is a lot more polished than "The Awakened".

That seemed like it could have been a pretty decent game but the production values were sooooooo low for the majority of the game and a lot of the puzzles and situations made no sense to anyone but Sherlock Holmes.

Sherlock Homles vs. Arsene Lupin was quite decent & indeed better than The Awakened , but i agree .. still needs more polishing.

I'll probably pass on this one regardless. I don't think Sherlock Holmes really does much for me.

The dialog in The Awakened was just so dry. And I guess one of Sherlock's important abilities is that he can make crazy assumptions and get things correct based on very little information. That always ends up looking like a plot hole to me, so it seemed like The Awakened had a lot of those.

Heh, for a second there I thought this is a Sherlock Holmes fighting game.

As for The Awakened, it's an alright game, but I had to force myself to beat the game. It wasn't enjoyable at times.

The shining moment of the game for me was when I had Holmes and Watson searching the dead body in Act 2 under the Warehouses for a full 5-10 minutes. After that, I went back down the stairs to some puddle/marks on the ground which then triggered a cut schene, in where they gasp, exclaimed, or whatever, when they found the dead body. There was a look of surprised and revulsion in Watson's part to the mutilated body.

And I'm sitting there thinking, you ****ers just sat there for nearly 10 minutes exploring the body. WTF.

Anyway, I hope the production value is better this time around. Otherwise it would probably be better as a fighting game. Wouldn't that be sick?
