Reminds me of Siberia game on Xbox, very much.

Summary: Another one of those games that requires walkthrough assistance! I'm pretty smart and this game foiled me with vagueness, as to which logic and measures to use. With walkthrough assistance, not too bad.
Summary: This is a fun but tough game. It is not easy to find the clues you need to complete the scenes.I had to go on line and find walk through's to solve many of the puzzles. Not as good as LA Noire but is entertaining.
Summary: At first I couldn't get past looking at the piano music in the first scene because none of the controls would show me the needed icons. I reloaded and got that to work then got as far as the second case at the Bishop's house and found I was repeatedly unable to talk to a priest I need to make leave the room. There is no free flow to this game. You have to do everything in a certain way or you can't advance.
Summary: Nothing spectacular. The worst part is the deduction board. You have to chose between three answers and they all link together and if you chose one wrong you can't move on until you figure it out. I thought it would be more of a hidden object type game, but it isn't.
Summary: The characters, story line, settings and artwork are all very well done. But navigating the characters around the crime scenes and obtaining the active item indicator are a pain. They are very awkward.
Summary: Every years growning up, I have been a big fan of mystery. I love reading every story of Sherlock Holmes. I also thought the movies weren't truly bad. In the game, I thought the story wasn't bad, but the one thing I didn't like was the puzzles. Some of the puzzles were kind of hard. I would deffinately recomend this to any Sherlock Holmes fan.
Summary: Really could have been awesome, like LA Noire. However, you must solve each case exactly the way the game wants, there is a use for each and every item in the game, there is no free roam, you spend a lot of time walking around trying to look at everything to find what you missed. In short, you end up trying to make the game happy. Plus there is a glitch that prevents you from walking through doors or walking away for about five seconds after they open.
Summary: Add a star if you like slow, methodical mysteries with little action. I love a good mystery game, but I hate point-and-click games, so there's not much out there for me. In the past few years, the best mystery games I can cite as meeting my sort of parameters I can cite are Heavy Rain and LA Noire. So I was excited when I found out that a new Sherlock Holmes video game was coming out.
Summary: It arrived early. Game and box undamaged. Game itself is difficult, and I often get frustrated and look up the answers online. There are a lot of brain teasers (to be expected) but little explanation.
