Sherlock Holmes - The Awakened gets an 8.3 on Gamespot! - 03/29/07 10:57 AM

I just saw a brilliant review of SH3 on Gamespot :
"Both true to the character of Sherlock Holmes and a rip-roaring pulp adventure in its own right, The Awakened is a must-play game."

Played it already and quite happy with it! thumbsup

It is not released here in the states yet Oblivion. Your fastest service will probably come from InteractCd which you can access directly by clicking on the Yellow Interact on the top of the forum.

Mmmm, Gamespot gives the release date as March 2007, whereas in Europe it was released in February. I played it as well and although i liked the story and generally the game i felt dizzy when playing it and always got headaches at the end of playing. The way you see things and move your head and so on caused this but it's a good game overall, certainly deserved the 8.3.

Hey, If I buy this game on the web site in yellow above, does it come in a case? If so, is it like other game cases with the nice booklets and cd cases, ect. or is it simple packaging with like only the cd. If so then I'll just download it via the main site rather than waiting till Wednesday. duh help help

Oblivion,

If you order it new from InteractCD, you do get the physical box with all the accompanying items.

It comes in a box with a manual and a CD in a flimsy plastic that scratches the heck out of the CD.

So your saying it comes with a manual, advertisement paper things, cd, cover, and then the box?

A manual, CD, no ads, and a thin flimsy plastic cover (NOT a CD case, just like a paper sleeve, only plastic)

Oh okay, I see, was the manual and the cd worth the wait or should I go for the download? I am also one of those people that loves to keep the covers and manuals laugh !

If you like the physical item, I would order from Interact and get the box. He shis really fast so you'll get it in no time.

I ordered this thru InteractCD and I should be getting it any day. I like to have the actual physical disc then downloading things....it's a security blanket for me I think. I can't wait to play it smile But I'm glad that it got high reviews!

Me too, i have never downloaded any games from the official sites although that is legal, i prefer waiting to get the full package and add to my collection. I prefer having manuals, original cds/dvds and so on.
