To be honest I never cared for the Sherlock Holmes games by Frogware until I saw previews of Crimes and Punishment. The 3rd person gameplay with some fighting and exploration aside from detective work got me interested. This Chapter One game seems to be an open world of sorts so I'm up for playing as Holmes in that setting.They've always been largely well regarded in terms of what they do. I think Frogware have found their niche and deliver on it.
Oh I liked some of the action scenes in this trailer, like when the guy asks who the devil are you that has to be from or a homage to the fight in The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist. He does box and use guns in the books but of course it has to be amplified because its a video game so I see where you are coming from.Crimes and Punishments was fantastic, their best Sherlock game by a mile. I didn't care much for the Devil's Daughter, since they changed the portrayal of Sherlock (looks like John Hamm... why?) and tried to incorporate action elements, poorly.
This one has me worried for the same reason--action doesn't belong in Sherlock games, nor does it really fit with the character.
