In the opening scene Holmes is smoking cigarettes with yellow filter tips. It should be common sense that filtered cigarettes have no place in the 1880's. That doesn't inspire confidence in the people who came up with the puzzles, perhaps it was intentionally put in as a clue that this game was badly designed. More inaccuracies follow and while I'm not one to nitpick such things this sloppiness is relevant because it also manifests itself in the design of the puzzles.
Voice acting is another thing I normally don't care about but the voice and accent of Holmes in this game is identical to that of Stewie, the baby from the cartoon Family Guy.
At times the dialogue in the subtitles has mistakes or differs slightly from what is said by the character. More sloppiness.
In some of the puzzles elements are small and poorly rendered. I've got a 42 inch plasma set and had to get up for a closer look a few times. Good luck with a small tube set. There was no reason for this other then sloppy design.
Up until now all my complaints have been minor but here is the serious problem with the game.Read more ›
I also find the camera angles weird to control. I have spent way too much time trying to figure out what the heck i am missing so I can continue to the next piece of the game. But there is no indication as to what I need to do. I also find it frustrating that to get one clue, I have to do 20 favors for people (one leads to another, in order to get another, to get another, and so on...).
There a lot of glitches in the rendering too that makes it distracting and feels like it wasn't quite finished/complete before they produced it.
Overall, I am disappointed in the game. It's more frustrating than exciting. I feel obligated to finish it so I can move on to a new game.
On the plus side, I rather enjoyed the lock combination on the briefcase. That part was fun!
Using a guide, I was able to complete the game and get all achievements in a day. This game is an easy 100% completion game for 1000G, but the storyline is probably more interesting than the game itself.
If you don't like the genre, don't buy the game! If you do, this will provide for quite a lot of enjoyment. I would, however, not play it with younger children, due to the whole prostitute-murdering aspect.
