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.
The first "case" has a deduction board tree to solve the mystery of the murdered priest. I tried all possible combinations, and clould not get the software to allow me to move on. Poor directions on how to play or use game!!!!!! The rating scale doesn't include 0 or negative numbers, which would be needed to properly tell everyone how much this game blows massive chunks!! 0 to -5 is fair for this diabolically cleaver claptrap of software.
VERY FUN!! RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF SHERLOCK HOLMES

Get whisked away into 1800's in England with none other than the renoun, and often mysterious, Sherlock Holmes and his trusted aid & second-half, Dr. Watson. The story weaves an abundance of elements and human emotion that ties you to the characters you play as as well as those they will interact with throughout the game. The thing I loved most is that it starts off right away, wasting no time in diving into the occupation of both Sherlock Homes and Dr. Watson. The game begins by setting up a robbery mystery set at a high upper-class mansion in the English land (not far from London), and the answer to the case is sure to shock in quite the most fun way... but this is only a brief set up for the story that will unfold throughout the game on it's whole. Highly recommended for fans of this particular English period, and I've found hours of game play from just the moment I put it on. Also heavily enjoyable were the character voice-actors (perfectly cast) and graphic design of the rooms, land, people, setting. It looks and sounds quite real for my tastes and I only wish there were plenty more in the series! A gripping puzzle and mystery game and I would by them all if there were more!!!
