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. Also, yet again, the Easter Eggs are GREAT! Nods to Batman and the Beatles! Classic! What I did not like was having to search and search and search for some 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. 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: 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. To others, this may be a bonus, but for me, who hates first person shooting games (they make me dizzy), I found it very disappointing. On the plus side, this game presents great graphical details.
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.
