Summary: I guess I was a bit more impressed with this game than the majority of reviewers. It took me a long time to finish and I had to refer to a walkthrough. The game does provide clues on one of the menu screens, but I rarely used it because I forgot it was there. It would have been helpful.
Summary: There wasn't much of a mystery to solve here. Compared to a game like Professor Layton, you would guess that very little effort was put into this game. It's a good idea to base a game on a classic character like Holmes, but it fell flat. On the plus side, the hints page was very good and very necessary. If you want to try, definitely rent; don't buy.
Summary: You roam around in a 3d mansion as Sherlock (without Watson). You look around by dragging on the touchscreen, and it'll take a minute to fine-tune your dragging so you're not whizzing around becoming motion sick. After that you start to explore the mansion and collect and use items. The puzzles are pretty much collect-the-right-object-to-use-at-the-right-location. There are a couple of logic puzzles but are fairly simple. What this game lacks is: 1.
Summary: Sherlock Holmes for the DS with a Mummy Mystery theme? how great is this going to be!? (well, that's what I thought) ...and it's commanding a pretty high price tag so, it's gotta be good...right? (well, that's what I thought). Oh...my expectations where so high. And, believe it or not, they still are! Sooner or later a sequel will be released that will make everybody happy! I've read the reviews to date and I pretty much agree with everyone.
Summary: I was looking forward to getting this game - having become hooked on adventure like games after playing layton, I thought I would try this! I would begin by agreeing with the previous reviewer about two things : 1 Holmes voice is very annoying, and will often blurt our random comments if you land your stylus on something - comments that often will not even really pertain to the game.
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.
