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. The graphics are much as they were for the prior game but what is interesting is the detail given to the actual historic sights.
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. I enjoyed the paintings and visiting the different locations around London. If you like Sherlock Holmes then you would like this game even if you have to use a walkthrough.
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. It was a pleasent experience, but could have been more.
