Interesting proposition for fans of Sherlock Holmes franchiseShav | June 6, 2013 | See all Shav's reviews »
I enjoyed Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of Baskervilles, and decided to give a chance to other games of that franchise. Im not a fan of typical point and clicks, and I much rather spend my times playing logical, puzzle game, so both parts of Lost Cases were really my cup of tea.
There are 16 different cases that you have to solve, some of them feature real locations and characters. Every single case is totally different and features different puzzles, so it will keep you interested for some time. While I didn't really have many troubles with the riddles, some of them were quite frustrating, but nevertheless it is an interesting game. Worth noting, that Lost Cases of Sherlock Holmes is the first game of the series licensed officially by Conan Doyle Estate.
While it's not really a must-have, it is certainly a good addition to all the people that've read all the stories about Holmes and want to see some more adventures.
