Well, having got past what was (to me) a rather fiddly tutorial I am absolutely LOVING this game.

A top notch Adventure for us ardent fans thumbsup

And not only that but it is working perfectly on my nearly 9 years old WinXP machine - with no tweaking required !!

I have nothing but praise for Frogwares. They have done it again !!

It's lovely to read all the positive comments.

My God, what a superb and wonderful game! sherlock
I've just finished and I swear that I didn't even breathe during the last cutscenes! What a magnificent story and long game play!

This was most definitely the best game of the series. There were a couple of surprising moments when I gasped out loud, bringing both hands over my mouth. The end was astonishing. shocked

The story was much more complex than any preceding game. The improved graphics, the writing (well done, Rushes!), the humor, complex puzzles, locations - all were unparalleled in my view. All the twists and turns were wonderful. I don't regret a single penny that I spent.

Many thanks to MaG for the walkthrough. There were several puzzles I wouldn't have gotten through without the help. It must have been a lot of work, but it is much appreciated.

I just wish the cutscenes were available to watch as a bonus. There are several I would love to watch again. So now I'll just have to play a second time. laugh

MaG -- The credits were interesting enough that I watched through to the end of them, which I rarely do in games! smile

Hi Everyone,

Thanks to each and every of you for the kind words, for your support and of course your praising of the game! We read here every comment carefully :-)

Just wanted to share the latest reviews with you made by the press and gaming journalists:

Gamezebo gives us 4.5 out of 5 saying that The Testament of Sherlock Holmes is exactly what you’d want it to be – an adventure that asks you to use your reason and deduction just as the good detective himself would.

Gamespot says its 8 out of 10: A grim storyline, challenging puzzles, and atmospheric visuals make The Testament of Sherlock Holmes one of the legendary sleuth’s greatest adventures.

You can read the rest of the reviews at http://www.frogwares.com/blog/the-testament-of-sherlock-holmes-critical-acclaim/ with links to the complete reviews

Thanks Gameboomers!

Hi Olga, and thanks! wave

The Trueachievements review is a little off the mark, though, I think.

"...but the entire [voice] cast appears to be from Frogwares' native France..."

I don't think so! woozy

And there are NO spelling errors in the dialogue. taz
