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 came to this after having played several Sherlock games from this company, the last being The Awakened. That was atmospheric, creepy, and challenging. This one, while it still manages to generate a good atmosphere, was actually not as good despite being newer.
