Horrible

The homoerotic detectives need a makeover

I will admit I was quite excited to play Sherlock. As others have stated before me it starts off very promising. There is a a mystery afoot and it is up to you to explore the clues. Exciting right? The way its acctually played would be very exciting for a 5 year old. At this time I'm just too tall to really pull of the identification so instead I'll stick with the hissy fits and say-"this sucks" over and over again at the screen.

Sadly much of the investigation is just going through the motions, the controls and features leave you greately wanting and in the end its really a question of how willing you are to play a boring game for the sake of Sherlock canon?

this game starts off looking very promising.... very good graphics and an interesting story... but as soon as you get control of Sherlock, the game turns south. The controls are very spotty and hard to use, and there is nothing more than a click this item and hear him say a few words or use the magnifying glass for this item. I couldn't even finish that one room before I had enough. Do not get this game, rent if you must try it. This is just my experience and from what I've read from others, they didnt like it either.
