Summary: If you enjoy the hidden object games, this is pretty good. Admittedly, the graphics are a bit old fashioned; however, the story line is close to the first Sherlock Holmes game. There are some changes -- some good, some not so good. Things are a bit more disjointed. Instead of each case getting a bit more difficult, there are four sections with each beginning with the easy case and the last more difficult. It's like starting over.
Summary: I was very disappointed with this game. I am in my late 20s and love mystery games, but the graphics were bad and cheesy in this game and the puzzles were WAY too easy to solve! Not a challenge at all. I got bored after an hour and stopped playing!
Summary: I find this game to be a "filler" for me, meaning it's an ok game to play every so often if I'm looking for a break from my other HOG/adventures in my collection. The game is very repetitious in its core gameplay, but the stories are short and fun. I did find that the voice-overs did not match the written speech along the bottom of the screen (at least on my install) and it was frustrating.

Summary: I purchased this game for my wife whom is NOT computer action type gaming person. She has played it to its end and says it is different as she plays it and really likes it. Funny, she used to give me crap for modern warfare gaming all night now shes doing this thing for hours. oh well, a good game.
Summary: I downloaded "The Lost Cases of Sherlock Holmes 2" from another website, where it was called "The Lost Cases of 221B Baker Street." I'm not sure why there are two titles, but looking at the list of cases, it's definitely the same game. It's almost identical to the first game in this series, but somehow it's not quite as fun. Part of the problem is the formula, which hardly varies: a client comes to Holmes and describes the case.
