"Maneuver fast-paced action sequences to challenge your every gaming skill."

I really LOVE Frogware's "Sherlock" games but this query by GreyFuss worries ME also eek

Plus I am fervently hoping the game will be available from other sites than Steam ....

However, thank you very much for the info, BrownEyedTigre grin

I add my concern over the "face-paced action sequences" Sure hope there are options if I am having difficulties completing the action.... would be a real shame if they ruin the Sherlock Holmes series for me!

On a good note, Frogwares has always given the adventure gamer options instead of going full gaming console action on us. They seem to remember the roots of their games and haven't forgotten about us.

Yeah, that sounds bad.
So does this, from the blurb Ana posted...

But maybe it only means you have a choice of doing things the "action" way or the "adventure" way, depending on how you want to play it.

It would be nice if someone from Frogwares could come clarify whether those of us who have no manual dexterity whatever will be able to play and finish the game.

Hello Ladies and Gents,

it's true the game has more "action" than before, there is more than Crimes and Punishments, but it's less than a game based on skills. If you have some doubts it's for you, maybe some let's play videos could help you make your choice at the release time.

I don't feel I can be more specific than that, as everyone is different. However, Tabatha is working with us writing the English version of the game and maybe she can share with us if she felt some difficulties playing the game?

Thanks, Ana. thumbsup Looks good, and hopefully the action won't be too difficult.

Thanks for the information, thehood. Do you have an idea as to whether the action sequences are any harder or easier than a TellTale game? I find TellTale's action pretty easy to get through for the most part (though I do get try again screens from time to time smile), so if it's on that level, I can handle it.
