The Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes
is the first part of a series of adventure games called “Electronic Arts Interactive Stories”. Holmes’ last line in this adventure is “There is a master criminal who thinks he is already more than a match for me.” Although this could simply be an allusion to Holmes’ arch-enemy, Professor Moriarty, it more likely a suggestion of the sequel. There is one other “Lost File” of the famous English detective, the sequel The Case of the Rose Tattoo
, which is quite different in style, using video-captured characters and rendered backgrounds.
The Disk version and CD-Rom version of The Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes are exactly the same. Voice-overs are included in the intro, the cut scene at St Pancras Station and the last scene.
The 3DO-version is a full talkie, and instead of the painted portraits video-actors are shown.
