Game on

It's not just movies, sports stars and over-endowed female tomb raiders who get the computer game treatment. Sherlock Holmes is strutting his stuff in the gaming world too. Thanks to the Eurocrime Blog where I spotted this tidbit this morning.

Sherlock Holmes is alive and well in Victorian London and this is his next adventure in PC world, (I didn't know he'd had his first, let alone several,) this time matching wits with Arsene Lupin. Check out the Official Website, the graphics look amazing.

I've never been a great fan of computer or Play Station etc. games. That says more about my attention span and skill level than the actual games, although this has me tempted to try...

Sherlock Holmes versus Arsene Lupin.

After coming face-to-face with the mythical Cthulhu in his previous adventure on PC (“The Awakened”), Sherlock Holmes confronts Arsène Lupin, the gentleman-burglar made famous by the literature series penned by French writer Maurice Leblanc. Arsène Lupin, whose exploits are enjoyed by millions of readers throughout the world, provides the perfect foil for Holmes as he attempts to pull of the ultimate heist.

This battle of wits between the most famous detective of all time and the world's greatest thief takes us to late 19th century London. Arsène Lupin is a young French burglar at the beginning of a glittering career, who comes to town with one goal - defy Scotland Yard and Sherlock Holmes. He states that he will steal five objects of immense value in five days from prestigious sites such as the National Gallery, the British Museum, the Tower of London and even Buckingham Palace! Sherlock Holmes must use all his daring and ingenuity to avoid a terrible humiliation for England.
