The Testament of Sherlock Holmes E3 Trailer

As you know, or should know if you read No High Scores on a regular basis, we don’t post every trailer or news bit that comes across our desk. We generally stick to what interests us. Well I love Sherlock Holmes and I have been stoically waiting for a good Holmes game for years and I hope this is the one. The trailer is promising and we’ll get a look at the game at E3. In fact, checking the schedule…Brandon will see this at E3. How did that happen?

Open World Holmes mystery game? Please be good. I saw this at E3 last year and it looked good then, too, but a bit rough. It’s come a long way if that trailer is any indication.

  1. Oh, this looks awesome. I’m a HUGE Holmes fan, very interested to see how they are able to convey a sense of being Holmes to the player…it’s pretty clear that the Ripper is part of the story since they mentioned Whitechapel.

    I can’t possibly not want this, even if it’s rough.

    ALso, in the ESRB it noted “use of drugs”…will they go there?

    1. Oh they will go there I’m sure. Did any of you folks ever play the Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper game frame a few years back? I need to pick it up at some point.

      1. I’ve picked it up and put it down a number of times…I dunno, for some reason it never grabbed me. I’d like to hear what a Holmes fan thinks of it, even if the game is so-so.

        1. I grabbed the Frogwares Sherlock games during some ridiculous Steamapalooza a couple months back. Tucked into The Awakened a little; they’re not great games. Very plodding in how you have to make connections between things.

          Not that making connections isn’t the heart of Sherlock Holmes, but I found it really goddamn cludgy.

      2. Played the whole thing on the 360. Nothing spectacular.

        My enthusiasm for this game is tempered because it’s still the same company making it and they just… don’t do it for me.

    1. That’s exactly what I thought. Any more, reading ‘open world game’ makes me wince in almost exactly the same way as when I read the description ‘Found Footage Movie’.

  2. What’s with the freaked out animalistic guy? Is this about zombies? There better not be any fucking zombies.
