POCG says: "A good mystery is always welcome to those who like a challenge. When it comes to mysteries, there is no detective more iconic than Sherlock Holmes. He has the brains, skills, tools, money, and experience to solve problems that confound even the most veteran of police. Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments allows players to take on the role of Sherlock and put his unparalleled deductive abilities to use in several unique cases. Although the players get to use the resources of Sherlock, will they get the full experience of being Sherlock Holmes?"
