Summary: The good: The scenery is great, the puzzles are fun, and the story is quite good, although there is a bit of muddling in the middle. I'm a huge adventure fan and enjoy solving puzzles and getting the whole story so this game was quite fun. The bad: Most of the puzzles were great. There were a couple that frustrated me, just out of common sense, not out of solving.
Summary: It was ok....not to challenging...very linear game play...you basically spend the entire time looking for objects and once you find them...you can move on...it wasn't very hard at all...I like point and click games on the computer (which is why we got this game too) but the game is so linear it didn't offer much more than a 'search and find' game.
Summary: I love a good mystery. The deduction board was a brilliant idea. Sherlock sense was a nice touch too. This game is not without quirks, however. Some of the puzzles were really tough. The game did not always supply enough detail to solve them. Overall, the plot was compelling, though asking watson for help is never useful. It would be nice to see more AI.
Summary: I would give 7/10 stars. The gameplay is somewhat weak, but the story is really cool and the puzzles are challenging to solve. You can finish this game in a weekend, worth the 19.99 price tag but nothing more.
Summary: I thought this game was going to be extremely bad. but it is pretty good in my eyes,dont get me wrong,its nothing like l.a noire in most ways;just finding clues to murders.overall pretty good Sherlock holmes game.
Summary: Before writing this review, I'd like to note that I did not purchase the previous Sherlock Holmes Vs Jack the ripper game, therefore, I can't compare the two. With that said, here's my review- Graphics- While I actually like this game a lot; the graphics are not good at all. The graphics aren't even average to be honest, but there are some parts of the game that look a lot better than the majority of the game.
Summary: The puzzles are interesting, few of them are fair easy, but few of them are pretty hard; some things are hidden in a spot that need you to spend some times to figure out. Graphic is good in this gene of games, but it's graphic can not compare to the top, like Gear of War, Assassin's Creed or Bioshock. Slow character movement is another thing need to be improved, I need some time to get used to it.
Not groundbreaking, but is what you can expect a good Holmes game to be.

Summary: I was barely a teenager when I got my first Sherlock Holmes game. The Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes flashed on my screen. With the new sound blaster pro installed in my computer I was amazed by the real voices that spoke along with the cutscenes. In the early 90's adventure games had really come along way in just the matter of years.
