Mind games

XBox: The Official Magazine - - REVIEW -

Tak­ing sev­eral para­graphs from Frog­wares’ pre­vi­ous Sher­lock ti­tles, The Sink­ing City uses a de­duc­tion sys­tem to help you solve crimes. When you amass enough pieces of ev­i­dence, the game en­cour­ages you to use its Mind Palace. Hey, no snick­er­ing in the back. Show­ing dis­jointed clues that must be pieced to­gether, it’s your job to fig­ure out which scraps of ev­i­dence sup­port each other. Sadly, easy trial and er­ror guess­work makes it less sat­is­fy­ing than Crime & Pun­ish­ments’ branch­ing de­duc­tions.
