First Person but still OK

Summary: I bought the third person version at Wal-Mart and spent about three days playing it. I loved it. I really liked the premise of hunting down this French thief in the many places the game took you. I think one of the things I had against this game was the fact that it was first person and you had to use both the mouse and w,a,s,d to move and the camera was a bit too sensitive even if I changed the options.
Summary: Sherlock Holmes: Nemesis is a real challenge for clever gamers, but it is very hard, and I resorted to using a walkthrough (MaGtRo) because without it, I would not have gotten through the thing. If you miss one clue or item you're supposed to pick up, you're stymied. I was unable to pick up two items in the armory and it took me two hours of back tracking to figure out why: I had missed picking up an obscure picture of a family called Mac Adams in a previous location.
Summary: Sherlock Holmes Nemesis is a truly enjoyable adventure. I found Nemesis to be much more enjoyable than the previous Sherlock Holmes Awakened. The menus and inventory are more user friendly, the story is much more believable, the graphics are excellent, making the overall experience much better. There are some really well done places to explore here... the British National Museum, the National Gallery, Tower of London and Buckingham Palace.
