In Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments, from Frogwares/Focus Home Interactive, Holmes is given a unique set of interrogation skills through which he may discern facts about people solely through appearance -- facts that can raise doubts about their claims and stories.
Re-evaluating clues gained from interrogations, physical evidence, observations and crime scenes will unlock further paths of deduction and lead to more clues and dialogue options. During interrogation, you’ll be able to select pieces of evidence that will catch your suspects off-guard. Successfully doing so will leave them astounded, causing them to crumble in the face of Holmes’ skills and your wits, eventually revealing more information about the case.
Across six unique cases, you’ll meet up to five suspects per investigation, all of whom could be connected to the crime sufficiently to have committed it. Each suspect can be convicted, and in some cases suspects can be convicted together, so it’s imperative to develop an understanding of the characters and their backgrounds to supplement information gained from examining crime scenes in order to build the clearest picture from which to deduce the most likely culprit.
His skills, your wits: become Sherlock Holmes starting September 30 on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC!
