Not Worth the Money

Summary: This game is pure drek. Not worth the money and time. Being a huge Sherlock Holmes fan, I was looking forward to this game. But after playing it for a few hours, I found it boring and clunky. Definitely not up to the high standards of most PS games. Go out and buy a book containing the Sherlock Holmes stories. You'll be way better off.
Summary: I wanted to like this game. I really did. I ended up being more frustrated than relaxed while playing and that clinches it for me. I don't mind puzzles, I really enjoy them. I do not enjoy trying to figure out the analysis of the test tubes with no direction on what I was supposed to do. I do not enjoy the stiff, awful animation. But getting stuck because the AI won't get out of your way? Or game play glitches to the point you have to reload an earlier save?
Summary: You need lots of time to play this game not a quick game. This is a long enduring game Not similar to CLUE game. It is a good puzzle game continuous puzzles figure out clues making it to the next step to get to the Next game.
Summary: This game is very cheaply made in that the characters are hard to move around, they're always getting stuck and/or hung up on something! The graphics are like something off the old PS1 system, they're low budget. The puzzles can be very, very challenging to solve just to advance in the game further. I found myself looking up walkthroughs on youtube more than actually figuring out and playing the game. Very frustrating at times!
Summary: My husband and I gave this game a try as we like mysteries and thought, based on some other reviews, this would be a fun game. It was pretty monotonous and boring and the game play felt very repetitious from the onset. We played it for a handful of hours and resold it. Disappointing.
Conclusion: not much to say about this game the story line is good and keeps you playing the puzzles are good as well but if you fail so many times on a puzzle mainly 3 times you can skip it and the computer does it for you which is a shame that's not the only let down with the game the controls are awful it really does take some time to get used to and the graphics aint that much better either and now and then the sound will cut off when you have been playing so long i asked my...
