What makes this game fantastic is the story. It is very well done from start to finish and makes for a great Holmes narrative. There are some weak points such as when you have to control the family dog which seemed a bit cheesy and unnesscary!

When it comes to the technical achievements of the game this one is a bit rusty around the edges. The gameplay mechanics such as movement aren't as tight as many games are these days and graphically it is a bit below average with weak animations. Yet, graphics alone don't make a game so the adventure did continue in some great ways. If you can get past these problems then you will enjoy the game

This really hit the spot as something a bit different from the normal fair of this genre. I'm glad I took the time to play it. If you're a puzzle hound you'll really enjoy the range of difficult ones that are scattered throughout. Thankfully, you can skip some of the challenges that get you tied up which, though feels like cheating, is a nice addition so you don't get frustrated.

Overall, a fun diversion and I genuinely hope they take the time to make another!
