As imagined by Arthur Conan Doyle, one of Holmes’ many talents is disguising himself so convincingly that he’s impossible to recognize. Frogwares has released a video illustrating this very thing, called The Art of Subversion.

Join Holmes in his Baker Street bedroom as he raids a wardrobe of disguises and a dressing table full of wigs, hats, glasses, hairstyles and beards — everything he needs to become someone else. Disguising himself as a member of a suspect’s social class will enable Holmes to gain that suspect’s trust and possibly even draw out a confession.

Holmes looks (and sounds) pretty good as an Irish sailor and, when confronting the suspect, he plays the part to perfection. He even does some arm-wrestling.

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments, from Frogwares and Focus Home Interactive, will be released September 30th for Windows, PS3, PS4, XBox 360 and XBox One.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
