Summary: Ok, the good to great things about this game are the graphics and scenery, most of the dialogue, the plot, and most of the puzzles. It's hard, and I don't mind hard puzzles. I loved that I had to decode some Egyptian, and deduce where the locations where for certain things.
Summary: I wanted to love this game and I more or less enjoyed the prior adventure, Sherlock Holmes the Awakened. This particular adventure pits Holmes against a French master-thief, Arsene Lupin, who plans to regain the honor of his country by stealing a variety of English treasures.
Summary: Sherlock Holmes Nemesis features a completely new game engine that is not the usual Point-n-Click game. Instead of playing from a third person viewpoint, it is more like a First person shooting game.
Summary: I like the storyline but some of the puzzles were tough and hard to figure out. I didn't get enough information to point me in the right direction without a walkthrough.Personally I didn't like the quiz. I think the game would have been better without it. The graphics were spectacular.
Summary: Overall, a moderately enjoyable experience. The difficulty of this game is very high. The linkages between the clues and the storeyline were at best, extremely subtle. I found a good walkthrough and followed it as a tour guide. I became an observer instead of a slueth.
Summary: This is not a review of the game (which is why I've given the star rating as medium). This game did not want to play on my XP system, and would crash after a very quick glimpse of the splash screen showing Holmes & Watson.
Summary: I have been a fan of Sherlock Holmes games for years... I played all of them bar this one and decided to buy it while waiting for the Testament of Sherlock Holmes. I loved the fact I got to explore London and learn more about the Tower of London. I found the most task boring, to say the least.
