it'd a decent game. kinda slow, wish it was a little more faster paced. but not bad of a game. some of the puzzles are torturous at times. Came be quite complicated. I have had to look up things on youtube quite a bit and it bugs me when i have to do it a lot. Id prefer not to at all.
The story was excellent. Basing the characters on the original cinematic Sherlock Holmes (Basil Rathbone) was excellent choice that illustrated commitment to the Sherlock franchise. The puzzles were unique and far more innovative then the typical puzzles of this genre. A prime example are the lock picking puzzles. The concept was more realistic then any other I've played in the past (and I've played a ton of these type of games for years). I can't imagine why it would get such a low rating. Most likely because most people do not understand how to examine things hence the reason why there is but one Sherlock.
