This game is horrible
25 July 2011
Summary: I am a big fan of Sherlock Holmes, but this game is absolutely horrible. The puzzles are unsolvable without a walkthrough. There are no direction given whatsoever on how to solve the puzzles or what the point of each puzzle is. The comparison to Professor Layton is ridiculous. Professor Layton puzzles make sense and have the direction on what each puzzle is and what needs to be done to solve it.
Summary: If you have 3 hours to kill, are completely bored and fancy a few poorly constructed puzzles, then waste you money on this. Appalling characterisation, appalling "dialogue", controls basic. Actually doesn't even deserve one star.
Summary: I have never written a review in my life however this game is so bad I feel I have to warn others about it. This game is absolute rubbish. The puzzles have no instructions on how to go about completing them and they are still ridiculously easy to solve. I managed to complete the game in about 3hours and was left thinking "Is that it??" Please do not waste money on this game. AVOID! AVOID! AVOID!
Summary: The total game play time is approx 2 hours - and quite a bit of that is spent waiting for the text to disappear. The majority of the dialogue moves on if you tap the screen, but there are certain sections where you just have to wait an inordinate amount of time for the next sentence. The puzzles are quite enjoyable, though the hint system is practically useless.
