Summary: The Lost Cases of Sherlock Holmes is too boring to play. Compare two pics and find what's different or missing. Rearrange the pieces into order. Memorize patterns and see what doesn't fit. Unbelievable. This is too elementary for me, even Holmes himself would rather inject himself with a shot of cocaine.They used to make better Sherlock mystery games in the 90s.
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've been enjoying the game very much. Did have to go get a patch from the web to help it run. That was the only hitch. Probably would be a good idea to add a note that such action may be necessary in future sales.
