First person detective fun.
A new video of Sherlock Holmes: Crime and Punishment has been released giving us a fifteen minute look at several gameplay mechanics. The game will put you in the role of a titular detective and, with the help of your trust friend and sidekick, Watson, undertake a dangerous set of cases to solve.
From the looks of the video, we’re looking at some interesting first person game play in Sherlock Holmes: Crime and Punishment. Holmes will sleuth around various crime scenes but oftentimes you’ll be without a weapon–forced to rely soley on your “investigate” courser, which allows you to target various objects in the room and inspect them for further clues.
Not only that, but based on the in-video narration we get, it seems that the characters of Sherlock Holmes are, to a very large extent similar if not the same to how they are portrayed in the books that had made them famous and the various television shows and movies that have spawned as result.
