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.

Just finished this game and I will say the only thing lacking was gameplay varitey and visuals. That being said the story in this game carried me through to such an extent that I cared about nothing ore than getting to the next mystery and solving another. Yes it seems low budget, but the creativity in the story and thrills from the mysteries spare no expense.
