"What they said about Sherlock I, you'll say about Sherlock II"...reads the advert in the box, based on the nice critics about Volume I.

  • The same video technology (this is 1992), keeps offering true interactive environment: actually letting you "feel" the traffic in the streets of the old London…

  • The same structure brings a familiar look, inviting to channel all attention to the task of solving mysteries: your intelligence, skills and patience are required to find clues by listening to people, observing details, or even reading the London Times - but don't let yourself be misguided by a wrong hint.

  • The same number of cases: 3

But, each situation is completely different: “The Two Lions” involving the murder of circus lions, “The Pilfered Paintings” just bought by The National Gallery...and “The Murdered Munitions Magnate”, where hints reveal different possible motives...have nothing in common, except the detective in charge: you…

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.
