Frogwares' latest Sherlock Holmes adventure, Crimes & Punishments, is now slated for an "early September" release, publisher Focus Home Interactive has announced.

Taking some cues from Rockstar's LA Noire, Crimes & Punishments will offer players a list of potential suspects and you must determine who is the real killer. "Use your impressive talents as a detective to solve six thrilling and varied cases," describes the Steam page, with players gaining access to murders, missing persons, spectacular thefts and numerous investigations that sometimes "lead you into the realms of the fantastic."

Crimes & Punishments will be available across PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The title will also mark Frogwares first Unreal Engine 3 game, a bit behind the times but at least we can expect good things. Check out the latest trailer below for an idea on what to expect.

is there any indication on whether or not this will be any good at all?

quick rundown for those who can't be assed watching that thing:

watson stumbles into the room apparently plastered to see sherlock homes firing a pistol AT him. naturally watson approaches him and then insp. lestrade appears. everyone is talking like that casino waitress on the simpsons episode 'freshen ya drink guv'na' and then it switches to some s***** gameplay demo that looks like it would be incredibly funny to purposely make holmes come to erroneous conclusions and be absolutely unsatisfying to succeed at as intended. cue terrible fight scene. ~fin~

if it retailed at less than a dollar i would buy it just so i could delete it from my steam library and now i know there's a doctor out there ruing the day he f***ed up that abortion

Can someone explain why Ha doesn't review games? He seems to do it pretty well.

if the publisher flew me to america for a reviewing session for ausgamers, here's my take on it

my first inkling that what i was playing was the masterpiece of 2014 came in the first 5 seconds; watson staggers into a room to see sherlock holmes firing a pistol (so random!) just as the real sherlock was wont to do (the dedication to faithful recreation floored me!). Watson was only staggering because of the massive, weighty erection he was sporting no doubt due to the loving rendering of the famous detective. my own erection started to hurt after 4 hours and so i had to go to the emergency room and have blood surgically drained from my penis (thumbs down for that!). the voice acting led me to believe that i was actually in victorian era london and was so immersive that the realisation, when the demo was finished , that electric lights existed caused my bladder to detonate where i sat which some intern mopped up.

Guys, don't be too harsh on this game.
I have played a lot of Frogware's Sherlock games and they are frankly very good.
The older ones have terrible graphics, but are generally bug free and the puzzles are tough.

The latest one was made for consoles specifically, so the graphics (similar to this trailer) are much improved...while the puzzles are "more accessible".
But still I found Testament of Sherlock was a great game. Interesting story, decent puzzles.

These aren't games for console kids or COD fanboys like Ha, this is really an Indie game a la steam library. Worth it at $20-30 range if you really like puzzlers.
