But you know what? I stuck with Crimes and Punishments even through all those obscene load times, and not just because I was reviewing the game. There's a genuinely great set of mysteries here, peppered with a few mediocre cases (about the same hit ratio as Arthur Conan Doyle himself, really)..
Add in the improved environments, the multiple endings for each case, and the moral choices, and it quickly becomes clear that Crimes and Punishments is the definitive Sherlock Holmes adventure--at least until the next Frogwares outing.
