Product Description

Having grappled with the machinations of a cult of Cthulhu in his last PC adventure (Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened), the world's greatest detective is now ready to challenge Arsène Lupin, the gentleman thief. Lupin, a character invented by renowned French writer Maurice Leblanc, has thrilled millions of readers worldwide with his exploits, and will prove a perfect foil for Sherlock Holnmes. This Sherlock Holmes game sends players to 19th Century London where Arsène Lupin, a young French burglar with an impressive track record, has just challenged Scotland Yard and the most famous of detectives - Sherlock Holmes. Lupin has announced that he plans to rob the capital of five objects of immense value over the course of five days. The objects are housed in highly prestigious locations such as the National Gallery, the British Museum, the Tower of London and even Buckingham Palace! Sherlock Holmes will have to muster all his courage and ingenuity to save England from terrible humiliation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable experience. May 28, 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Sherlock Holmes Nemesis is a truly enjoyable adventure. I found Nemesis to be much more enjoyable than the previous Sherlock Holmes Awakened. The menus and inventory are more user friendly, the story is much more believable, the graphics are excellent, making the overall experience much better.

There are some really well done places to explore here... the British National Museum, the National Gallery, Tower of London and Buckingham Palace. Each place is designed beautifully and is a real pleasure to explore, especially since this game is in a first person style 3D mode instead the standard adventure 2D.

The story is really intriguing too. Sherlock Holmes confronts Arsène Lupin, the gentleman-burglar made famous by the literature series penned by French writer Maurice Leblanc. The battle between Holmes and Lupin takes place in the late 19th century London. Lupin tries to steal paintings and other valuable items across England and Holmes must stop him.

The difficulty is a little high but that doesn't take away from how good the game is. In fact, I would find it hard to believe that most people could play this game without referring to a walkthrough. I used a walkthrough on the most difficult parts only and I still had a wonderful time with Nemesis. This is one of my favorite adventure titles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky, funny, a blast! July 4, 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Sherlock Holmes: Nemesis is a real challenge for clever gamers, but it is very hard, and I resorted to using a walkthrough (MaGtRo) because without it, I would not have gotten through the thing. If you miss one clue or item you're supposed to pick up, you're stymied. I was unable to pick up two items in the armory and it took me two hours of back tracking to figure out why: I had missed picking up an obscure picture of a family called Mac Adams in a previous location. Be forewarned, but not deterred!

Victorian London is marvelous from our comfortable armchairs even though the reality under the thick fogs was anything but romantic. Jack the Ripper was a dilettante compared to a modern serial killer such as Ted Bundy, but the Ripper is romantic in a chill, creepy way and the scream of one poor victim down there under the 1890's fog vibrates along the years -we hear it, we shudder, we are titillated. Victorian England- the perfect game milieu.

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are the perfect Victorians as we see them, gentlemen: no swearing or vulgarisms. And the cat and mouse antagonism of Holmes and the arch-thief Arsene Lupin in this game is a highly intellectual rivalry. Lupin the Frenchman strives to bring England (and Sherlock Holmes) to their knees by stealing the five most important objects to England, without which she can't endure. You are treated to a merry romp through the National Gallery, the Tower of London, the British Museum, and of all places, Buckingham Palace. Actually, you may learn a lot about paintings, even what the ravens in the Tower eat (but I imagine we're getting our leg pulled a bit on that). The locations are splendidly done and you feel very much a part of them, you are there.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sherlock Holmes: Nemesis May 14, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Overall, a moderately enjoyable experience. The difficulty of this game is very high. The linkages between the clues and the storeyline were at best, extremely subtle. I found a good walkthrough and followed it as a tour guide. I became an observer instead of a slueth. It was a pleasent experience, but could have been more.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sherlock the Math Wizard November 13, 2008
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I wanted to love this game and I more or less enjoyed the prior adventure, Sherlock Holmes the Awakened. This particular adventure pits Holmes against a French master-thief, Arsene Lupin, who plans to regain the honor of his country by stealing a variety of English treasures.

The graphics are much as they were for the prior game but what is interesting is the detail given to the actual historic sights. I've been to the Tower of London and it was amusing to see it in the game modeled with great attention to the layout of the place. But the graphics are hardly crisp and the human characters a bit blocky.

The voice-actors for Holmes and Watson are well done and the game captures the 'feeling' of Holmes quite well. Other voice-actors tend to be stilted and at times remind me of people who don't speak English as their primary language. Lupin in particular just wasn't out-rraaaag-eously Frannnch as I wanted him to be.

Gameplay is downright frustrating. Searching for items and figuring out how they go together was enjoyable enough and gave you an excuse to roam. The puzzles on the other hand were designed for those interested in math. Adding, subtracting, multiplying, disguised in lengthy letters and clues is the game's idea of fun. Like so many other reviewers I resorted to the online walkthrough whenever I confronted a puzzle that stumped me for too long.

The game has potential but is far too scripted. There came a point where I KNEW where Lupin was, but of course I couldn't do anything about it. I think a better design would have been several cases with various ways of observing, questioning, and a few puzzles can lead Holmes to victory.
