I'm a great fan of SH so that's why 'Crimes and Punishments' was among the most expected games of this autumn. After playing the first case I understood that Ukrainian creators had completely crashed all my hopes. SH-C&P is not a next-gen project (graphic looks like level of 2008-2009) and that's why gamers should expect interesting storyline, difficult cases and good gameplay. Yes, cases and storyline are perfect! Nevertheless gameplay disapointed me. In 2014 gamers want to feel freedom in games but SH is a bad example. Everything looks SIMPLE! You don't have to think or to choose your own way of investigation, you should only do special tasks. And that is all! The game tells you what to do, where you should go and so on... Good sides: characters looks perfect (voices, appearance, clothes - excellent!), places of investigation/houses/Scotland Yard looks also amazing, brilliant storyline, ability to inspect clues. Bad sides: gameplay (simple and it'll be good for people who played old SH games but in 2014 I'd like to see something else), graphic (not for me, but for gamers who want to see next-gen graphic in modern games) and mechanics (not level of 2014!)
