Showcasing the game's new engine

Frogwares and Focus Home Interactive have released five new screenshots from The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: The Testament of Sherlock Holmes.

The screens illustrate the improved graphics, that the game's new engine has to offer, with "lush, immersing and captivating environments" and "the Sherlock Holmes character as you've never seen him before".

Sherlock Holmes continues his investigation with five new images of The Testament of Sherlock Holmes, the famous detective’s first adventure specially developed for the PlayStation® 3 & Xbox® 360 home consoles (also available on PC). The renowned sleuth has uncovered new twists in the investigation... unsettling murders and an ever-growing list of suspects, this extremely tricky case will be sure to challenge the wits of every mystery fans!

In case you missed it during the E3 rush, you can watch a trailer for the game here.

The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: The Testament of Sherlock Holmes is scheduled for release this fall.

For a "shit game that is meant to be an easy 1k" I'm pleasantly surprised by those screenshots of the sequel. smile

Looks pretty damn good, although a pretty face can hide a shitty personality. ;)

The first one was good for the puzzles and the story. Love SH and Jack the Ripper, so putting them together was very good. Looking forward to this one.

I have the first one and I haven't started it yet. I know the first game's graphics weren't very good and the control was better suited for a PC Game, but I think I will enjoy it. Some folks just want to play these games for an easy 1k. I mean those are the folks that play games for achievements. I actually bought the first one for my wife because she likes mystery/investigation type tv shows. Don't judge a book by the cover until you read the book.

As long as it's another "point & click", I'll be happy. It worked well with the previous game.

I rented the first one (admittedly because it was fairly easy) but was pleasantly surprised so I'll definitely look into this one
Honeycut1 - Now that I clogged the feed with those gaming goals I will actually try to work on those games.

Extra thanks to the newshounds!! I like the good news and complaining about the bad news. A win-win.

I'm excited for this and LOTR. I love it when great books transition to great games.
Posted on 06 July 11 at 22:08
I am not seeing much of a difference from the first game.
If you don't like what I have to say, you can fuck right off.

Love point and click games, Sorcerers Stone and Broken Sword got me hooked as a kid. The first one of this was terrible though. If nobody has played Gray Matter and likes point and click I would highly recommend it!

Point and click is a fantastic genre, and one that never gets enough credit in the gaming world.
Best graphics I've seen for a game of the genre in a long while. Looking forward to this after hearing mediocre things about the first one.
