3.0 out of 5 stars Average point and click 30 Jun 2011
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I came to this after having played several Sherlock games from this company, the last being The Awakened. That was atmospheric, creepy, and challenging. This one, while it still manages to generate a good atmosphere, was actually not as good despite being newer. For one thing much of the problem solving is irrelevant chore-work rather than detection. The story is intensely linear and you are forced to trek round and round locations looking for random objects and puzzles until you have completed the required sequence. Dialogues are repeated again and again until you are sick of them. And some of the problems are simply absurd. The makers also have a bizarre idea of Victorian England and what life was like around Queen Victoria - apparently her maids of honour were allowed to dress like streetwalkers and behave like them too. The idea of Holmes up against Arsene Lupin is splendid, but this is poorly realised. The character graphics are also quite clumsy, and much of the voice acting poor (though their Holmes and Watson are good). These are things which really could have been improved. On the other hand the locations are fairly well realised, for instance the Tower of London is nicely done and so is the British Museum. And some of the problems can actually be solved by thought rather than luck or random trying of inventory objects. And the inventory system is user friendly, and the maps inside the locations make getting around much quicker. But it could have been amazing and comes out simply - okay.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better 1 Feb 2012
By Asha
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been a fan of Sherlock Holmes games for years... I played all of them bar this one and decided to buy it while waiting for the Testament of Sherlock Holmes. I loved the fact I got to explore London and learn more about the Tower of London. I found the most task boring, to say the least. The story wasn't compelling enough to have me running from one room to the other numerous amount of times ( British Museum!!!!!). All in all, I think this is the worst game of the series and it definitely lacks dialogue with other characters. The voice of Arsene Lupin is so quiet I could not hear it from the music.

Anyway, if you have never played a Sherlock Holmes game, do not buy this one as you will be disappointed - the other ones are so much better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sherlock Holmes nemesis 30 May 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Its got its good points -
Game runs very smoothly and installs no problem on vista or windows 7 when I upgraded to windows 7
Good graphics and very good representations of the locations like tower of London. I've been to the actual place and noticed how accurate the game was.
I like the first person view, not a fan of 3rd person view, but that's my own opinion.

However, I did have to refer to the walkthrough quite a bit as it wasn't easy to work out what to do in some bits.
Apart from that, its a good game and well worth a play. Just waiting for the next one now!
