Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery Of The Mummy (DS): Can you solve the Mystery?
9 March 2011
Summary: Sherlock Holmes is a fictional detective created by a Scottish author. The character was famous for his powers of observation and deduction, which he used to solve any crime or mystery thanks to his keen eye for detail. Holmes has been solving crimes here, there and everywhere for decades, as well as on the big screen. And now the famous detective has even begun to solve mysteries in the Nintendo DS.
Pros: A fun mystery to solve
Cons: Graphics are poor in area and help is too readily available
Summary: I am an avid Sherlock Holmes fan so when I saw this game, which was very much anticipated, I finally picked it up. I was very disappointed. I found it much too easy. So easy that it took me 2 evenings to finish it. Unfortunately, they made the mistake of giving the answers away too quickly. A clue or a hint should be just that, an idea of what to do or where to put something. This game told you what to pick up and where to put it. It is very unfortunate.
Mummy Mummy Mummy, Must Be Funny in Old Sherlock's World

Summary: As a fan of point 'n' click adventures, I was quite keen to get my hands on this DS title, even though reviews for it had not been the kindest. As ever, I approached it with an open mind to see what it offered. The plot is fairly standard for both adventure games and Holmes mysteries. The famous detective receives a letter from a woman whose father has disappeared. Using all his sleuthing abilities, Holmes must uncover clues and solve puzzles to find the guilty party.
Pros: Logical, fun, if untaxing, puzzles. A reasonable adventure
Cons: Awful speech, ropey graphics, cheesy cut-scenes. Not particulary difficult
