Sherlock Holmes is back on PC in The Awakened. This new Sherlock Holmes adventure game rises to the challenge of being entirely in 3D, while the creators have retained the traditional adventure game 'point & click' mechanic, in which the game is played solely with the mouse. The use of full 3D allows for an immersive experience, with changing game rhythm and additional enigmas and puzzles using physics and light. Mixing the works of Doyle and H.P. Lovecraft, The Awakened plunges the player into the heart of a mysterious and oppressive adventure. Sherlock Holmes, assisted by the loyal Doctor Watson, investigates strange disappearances which seem related to the activity of a secret sect which worships the god Cthulhu. Written by Shawn Watson

In the section of the game where Holmes and Watson are in the warehouse district/Docks, they come across a postman that has been forced to drink alcohol and is feeling pretty poor for it. However, this section is set in London, yet the postman is wearing the uniform of the U.S. postal service. The U.S. uses the bugle symbol, the English postal service has always used a crown.

Brilliant Sherlock - Cthulhu game.
30 January 2007 | by (Slovakia) – See all my reviews

After a long time I played a good A.C. Doyle and H.P. Lovecraf influenced adventure PC Game. Comparing the previous Sherlock Games this one is completely done 3D. The plot about the Cthulhu (here called Leviathan, but the statue images are clear) is something very fresh to this detective genre. The part by Mississipi is just as a copy of the novel Call of Cthulhu from H.P. Lovecraft. Very well done, great graphics, great plot, great sounds and dubbing, great atmosphere, what do You want more? Little bit of Gore, good riddles, and especially Sherlock and Watson as main characters again. I was always fan of good adventure games...this one rules.

Buy, Play And Enjoy
