This is yet another fine adventure/mystery game from ICOM simulations. Granted, there are only three cases on this CD, but the video itself is worth the price. Games in progress can be saved, so you can ponder what action to take next while eating dinner. The video and programming time involved in creating this game make Sherlock Holmes a definite buy for any mystery or adventure game aficionado.

Excellent!! The cinema screens in Sherlock are incredible! It's like watching a movie mystery unfold in front of your very eyes! The worst part about Sherlock Holmes is that only three mysteries don't last too terribly long. After you beat them, all you can do is try to beat Holmes.
Once you have solved the case, you are told your score. True patient mystery lovers might want to go back and try solving the case using less points, but I doubt that this aspect of the game will appeal to everyone. Patience is the key to Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective. Patience and an active imagination. If you've got both and time to sit down and solve mysteries, give this one a try.
