Summary: This is not a bad game. It is very challenging, the graphics are very good, and it features a hint system that actually works. It does have terrible voice acting, so leave the volume down. If you are a big fan of Sherlock Holmes, then you should at least try this out!
Summary: I am a big Sherlock Holmes fan and I had no idea how this game was going to be. The only thing you do in this game is search. However, the controls are smooth for a DS game and the graphics are really good. The gameplay is standard puzzle solving told entirely from the point of view of Sherlock, which is cool. There's also a hint system which for once actually works. If you're a fan than I recommend this game highly.
Summary: This game is much improved over the PC origonal. Some puzzles have been removed giving the game a more adventure feel. While the gameplay was enjoyable, the game's cutscenes were very well done for a DS game and made the game. The gameplay itself is easy and the puzzles were fun and well integrated into the story. The game contains the entire walkthrough for the game inside - a great plus. Graphics were same as PC - which is very good.
