* HotterAndSexier: The new character models for Holmes and Watson, shared by the previous game Crime and Punishment - seem to owe a lot to the [[Film/SherlockHolmes2009 2009 film]] and [[Film/SherlockHolmesAGameOfShadows its sequel]], which made much of the sex appeal of the lead actors, Creator/RobertDowneyJr and Creator/JudeLaw. Previous entries in the series had based their appearances on the older, less self-consciously attractive portrayals from [[Series/SherlockHolmes the Grenada TV series]].

* AgeLift: At least visually though Holmes mentions having been working as a detective for at least twenty years prior to the game, he and Watson now appear to be in their thirties, perhaps placing them in their forties, making them younger than their pre-Crime and Punishment incarnations.
