The Testament of Sherlock Holmes (360, PS3, PC)

 

It’s definitely nice to play a game that’s unlike the usual crop of shooters and sports games, and TTSH is certainly of a more cerebral bent.

A rather ripping yarn requires the player to solve puzzles and interpret clues as both Holmes and Watson, with some of said puzzles being sure to hold you up for a while and provide satisfaction upon completion. There’s not a terrific amount of replay value although the story is interesting and the game looks good, and you’re looking at 15-20 hours to complete it. Definitely worth a punt if you’re looking for something different. 8/10
