I downloaded "The Lost Cases of Sherlock Holmes 2" from another website, where it was called "The Lost Cases of 221B Baker Street." I'm not sure why there are two titles, but looking at the list of cases, it's definitely the same game. It's almost identical to the first game in this series, but somehow it's not quite as fun.

Part of the problem is the formula, which hardly varies: a client comes to Holmes and describes the case. You then visit several locations, where you either find a list of missing objects, or spot the differences between two nearly-identical pictures. In each scene, there's an object which contains a mini-game. Then you go back to Baker Street, where you have to arrange pictures of the suspects into a grid based on their characteristics, and then you play a memory game to narrow down the suspects until you find the criminal. It's fine in small doses, but if you play three or four cases in a row, it quickly becomes monotonous.

Gameplay: the hidden objects are definitely easier to find this time around. You get a certain number of hints per case, and can earn bonus hints by finding the hidden pipe in every scene. All of the mini-games are skippable after you've tried them for a certain length of time, which is a nice way of encouraging players to at least give the puzzles a shot. The mini-games are pretty easy (at one point there's actually a jigsaw puzzle with four - count `em - four pieces) although a few might take some trial and error.

There's almost nothing to say about the plots because they really don't matter. Each mystery starts off with an interesting premise - a murder in a restaurant, a woman disappearing at a carnival - but the game's insistence on creating as many suspects as possible means that none of them are developed.

This game is a whole lot of fun. You solve over a dozen cases with Sherlock and Holmes at 221 Baker Street. The graphics are beautiful, and the mysteries are intriguing, with genuinely good plots and voice overs. The length is good, too. Most of the game play is hidden object style, where you find objects in busy scenes, but there are also some interesting spot the difference scenes, and a lot of neat minigames. I couldn't stop playing all week.

If you enjoy the hidden object games, this is pretty good. Admittedly, the graphics are a bit old fashioned; however, the story line is close to the first Sherlock Holmes game. There are some changes -- some good, some not so good. Things are a bit more disjointed. Instead of each case getting a bit more difficult, there are four sections with each beginning with the easy case and the last more difficult. It's like starting over. Wish it was more like the original in that regard.

I was disappointed in the Lost Games collection as the sleuthing was more finding hidden objects and solving puzzles then solving crimes. Also the narratives loaded automatically so that you could not backtrack on them. Still, if you like Sherlock Holmes you will like the stories.

This is a fairly unique hidden object/puzzle game. it has a good level of difficulty. The only strike against it is the very small pictures or maybe one should say--the scale of it. even with the magnifying glass feature, it is hard on the eyes.

I was very disappointed with this game. I am in my late 20s and love mystery games, but the graphics were bad and cheesy in this game and the puzzles were WAY too easy to solve! Not a challenge at all. I got bored after an hour and stopped playing!

After playing the first one, I couldn't wait to get my hands on the sequel. I love this game. The graphics are great and each cases are very fun to play. Hidden object game like Sherlock is great and it just wants you to keep going until the game is finished. Legacy outdid themselves on this one. This game is highly recommended.

I purchased this game for my wife whom is NOT computer action type gaming person. She has played it to its end and says it is different as she plays it and really likes it. Funny, she used to give me crap for modern warfare gaming all night now shes doing this thing for hours. oh well, a good game.
