While the so-called "point and click" adventures seem to be slowly falling into decline in favour of more action-packed videogames, there are still companies who believe these adventures are worthy.
This is the case of Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened, a pure conversational adventure based on the works of Conan Doyle and also Lovecraft, something that will appeal many fantastic literature fans. The game features impressive 3D landscapes that get you immersed in 19th century London, together with a subtle background music that adds the final touch.
Playing the role of Holmes himself, you can move around the city, use diverse objects and interact with other characters. The game supports both mouse and keyboard, and I personally recommend the latter as the mouse feels a bit awkward. Also, dialogs may be a bit boring, but luckily enough you can skip them by pressing ESC and review them at your own rhythm in your inventory.
