I loved this. I bought this after cancelling my pre-order for Sherlock Homes DS game. I did so on the recommendation of other reviewers and soooo glad I did. What I love is the humour. You can make this game amusing by continuing to talk to characters even if you know they will not add any more to the mystery solving. The characters are varied any some quite wacky! The mystery itself is excellent and help of a walkthrough type is available if you need it. I was only tempted once when I really couldn't figure out what next..so you never feel like you've hit a brick wall as with some other games. It's great too get out and about too..all over the world in fact. Some games like Nancy Drews can be a bit same-old same-old rooms, but this has many new different areas to explore. Don't want to finsh it..love it!!
