Summary

By Jove, the game is afoot, again!

The Good

Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective Volume II has the same structure and the same actors playing Holmes and his loyal, intimate male companion; Dr. Watson.

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson have three new cases to solve, by visiting suspects, reading the newspaper and utilizing the down-low, talents of some of the local, underprivileged lads.

The Bad

Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective Volume II offers the same type of full motion video; namely video that is not full-screen and suffers from the embarrassing hardware limitations of the Sega CD.

Much like the first game in the series, Volume II has a point system that is meaningless, other then encouraging you to do the least amount of work. Beyond being silly, it is downright insulting to suggest that the likes of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson would be so lazy in their investigations

The Bottom Line

Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective Volume II offers more of the same in terms of video quality and game play. The three new cases are about as difficult as the three cases in Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective Volume I.
