I should start by saying that I played the original pc version a few years ago now. I bought this because it was cheap and was curious as to how well it would work on a Wii. Thankfully, it worked quite well.
Compared to Broken Sword, Monkey Island, etc, Sherlock is more serious click and play mystery (not to be confused with the tacky "hidden object games also available). Anyone who pines for a more jokey atmosphere should probably ignore this game. Sometimes it goes a bit too far. Too often you're treated to superfluous scenes of Holmes and Watson just walking - and they walk quite slowly - sandwiched between loading screens. The presentation is therefore a little slow and fusty.
As far as gameplay goes, its fine, but has been oddly simplified from the PC version. Some games and puzzles have been cut short and made easier, while there is I'm sure at least 1 sequence that has been removed. Although I don't discourage anyone from buying this version, the previous PC version is more of a challenge.
The graphics were a bit dated back when I played it on pc and even more so now. The animation is fairly cheap. Characters never seem to grab items properly for example.
As far as voice-overs go, both Holmes, Watson, LeStrade are fine as are some of the other more major players. Sadly there are a few bad'uns and hammy accents thrown in that spoil some scenes.
Despite its dated presentation and simplification, it was still fun and I recommend it.
