An Ok Game
May 5, 2012

This game was ok, but the worst of the Sherlock Games I've played. Good Parts: Suspect Minigame The challenge of puzzles and finding hidden objects The Storylines of each case OK Parts: Took me a while to get in to Bad Parts: The objects were small Some objects were ridiculously hard to find The cases were timed You couldn't turn the timer off In conclusion: I wouldn't reccomend this game unless you're VERY patient and have VERY good eye sight

Awful awful HOG

I don?t recommend this game. Really!!! The objects are too small to be found and you have to find differences and differences and more differences... and you can?t find them. I didn?t like it. You get bored at the beggining...

Easy Sherlock

There are 16 cases to solve, each with a time limit. Game lasts about 4-5 hours. Cases generally include various puzzles and HOS, ending with a mini-game identifying the guilty part. The puzzles and HOS in each case are nicely tied to the story. Items are not difficult to identify and fit into the scenes. Find a Sherlock Cap in each book and unlock a bonus chapter. Earn extra hints by finding a Sherlock pipe in each scene. Fun game, even though solving the crimes is simplistic and quite easy. No annoying traveling. Overall, game has a British feel. Animation is stiff and artwork was bland, though that may be the look for which they were aiming. You can easily stop and restart playing at any point. Once you've played the game, it may be too easy to hold your interest the next time.

Not the Most Entertaining Game
November 23, 2011

Once I completed the first "case" in this game, I felt like all the others were essentially identical. Unfortunately, it's not very engaging or entertaining. I'm a huge Sherlock Holmes fan but this game leaves a bit to be desired.

Was worth the time, but a bit repetitive.

pretty challenging game

Items are very small even with magnifying glass, but it was still fun to play. Mini games are really fun. I don't really like games with time limits , but with the help of hints there is usually enough time. It seams to be a pretty long game ( not finished yet ).

Sherlock's Getting a Bad Rap

OK, some of the objects are small and some are ridiculously hidden. But if you manage your hints, you'll be able to get through each case. Each chapter is timed. I generally HATE timed games. But I like this one. And, again, if you are careful with your use of hints and use them wisely, you'll be fine. The graphics are very good. And the objects pretty much relate to the time period -- late 1800's. There are no laptops to find, no cars, no telephones. Each case is its own little short story, so I don't see how you could get bored. And the mini games are varied, so you're not doing the same mini game over and over. You visit new locations for each case, except for Baker Street where you return each time to figure out the identity of the culprit. I gave this game 5 stars partly because I really like it and partly to counteract the bad reviews, which I think are undeserved. But to each his own. I have given one star reviews to games that have a 4 or 5 star average rating.

VERY Elementary, indeed.

I like challenge, but this was too easy for me. The only time I had to use the hint button was because I had trouble seeing objects even w/the magnifier. The process of elimination was too easy for each story. I think for a tween, (11-15 or so) it would be great, but I was bored. Too bad, because I love the logic of Holmes. Also, the characters and the graphics were just so-so. I have seen worse, but I was not impressed. Recommend for an older juvenile, but unless you are just looking for a time filler without a hard challenge, skip this one. I won't be buying it.

Would not purchase it

I had high hopes for this one but they were quickly dashed. I did not mind the hidden items being really tiny but the formula for each chapter was exactly the same. I did not like the graphics either. Overall I found it really boring.
