Wow, I got a lot of comments yesterday, from people who want to see me play Sherlock Holmes games. I don't want to be rude, but...why? They're awful. Here's a video of me playing one:
I did that video nine years ago. I played demos of all the Sherlock Holmes games which were available that year, but they were equally bad. That was the only one I bothered to record. I guess I could try out the other games (and record that), but I'm hesitant to do so. I'm fairly certain I'll agree with my 2009 assessment of their quality level.
I did purchase Sherlock Holmes VS Jack the Ripper, but I couldn't get through it. The violence and gore was extremely gratuitous, and the gameplay was fetch quests. Sherlock ping-ponged from person to person for an hour, and I think he solved one puzzle. It wasn't fun.
