The game really wins out with its fine script, and a big well done to Challenge for constructing an imaginative storyline that complements the Infocom system beautifully. if this is a taste of what franchising can do for Infocom, then give me a whole banquet to eat of it, I loved it and recommend you rush out now and grab a copy fast.

Altogether, this is a mystery that conveys just about the right atmosphere for the place, time, and subject, with a good helping of general historical interest thrown in as well. I take my hat off to it. Now that is something I could recommend you to do before you get very far into the game, too!

My only reservation about the game is that hints are included on the disk. My feeling is that this is far too great temptation to put in front of the average adventurer although others may prefer to have help on hand. That aside though, Sherlock is an excellent adventure and once well worth adding to your collection.
