I "recommend" for the people who like solving puzzles but I didn't like this game.
Well, if we compare this one to the others, this one is a "light game". Different from "Sherlock vs Jack", "Crimes and Punishments"... There's no dead peoples, murders... It's only about this famous french theft: Arsène Lupin. However, I think that Lupin is an annoying "villain". Since he decides to mess with Sherlock, he became some sort of "The Riddler", making you (Sherlock) read paper after paper, make puzzle after puzzle just find an object to solve another puzzle.... to find another puzzle... to find another paper... to make another puzzle...(in the same scenario) to find another paper to know where it will be his next theft... zZz
In my opinion, he annoyed me so much. And the ending wasn't so exciting...
However, there were things in this games that caught my attention. The puzzles in this game are way more difficult than the puzzles on "Sherlock vs Jack" for example. And as there's no such thing as to find out who is the killer, there's no deduction menu, so they increased the number of puzzles (and Lupin's annoying letters).
And don't get fooled by the "hints" on the menu. They are the most useless and laziest hints I've ever seen in a game xD Really.

Having played Nemesis, versus Jack the Ripper, and Testament of...Holmes, I have a soft spot for these games. I've liked the style since I first played Ripper and continue to enjoy every game that I get into from this series.

Nemesis finds Holmes pitted against Arsene Lupin, (a character of Maruice Leblanc's writings), the gentlemen thief. While one could argue this way and that to the justice to the true character of Lupin, I think that misses the point.

I found that the puzzles in this game are more enigmatic than those of the other games I have mentioned solely because Lupin is such a character. I feel that the puzzles and tasks that lay before you as a player are cerebral and push you to observe everything. In a sense, it is pushing you to be Holmes. Though I may have groaned at another failed attempt at a puzzle, the sense of reward after finding the answer on my own was exceedingly gratifying.

What Holmes game would you want to play that readily gives you all the answers? I don't want one of those. I'd rather sit and ponder art puzzles or move around a giant library to find the clues I need to complete each mission/task.

If you're looking for a game that is easy and entertaining to pass the time, this may not be the game for you.
However, if you are looking for a game that's going to push you and test you, have great history, and by chance have you learn something in the process, then you should give it a go.

I've just completed the game and had fun with it, as there were some very good puzzles and I did like the story as well. The graohics are pretty much the usual for this series but they set the scene well. The audio is good as well, nothing out of the ordinary though. My two complaints about the game are too many MATH puzzles and there seemed to be too much retracing steps at every scene almost. More than the usual. The map jump feature helps, but I actually thought I was going to lose my mind at the museum. Other than that I recommend the game as the story is good. Now I may move onto The Last Testament of Sherlock Holmes.

I am playing and reviewing Frogware's Sherlock Holmes series in chronological order of the games. This is the fourth game in the series. I want to get this out of the way and say, that this felt like a fan fiction version of Sherlock Holmes. This is a cat-and-mouse game of Sherlock Holmes versus Arséne Lupin, a gentleman thief written by a Frenchman Maurice Leblanc which was written while the Sherlock Holmes books were being written. Historically, these two characters are not strangers to each other with Leblanc writing books about their opposition. But was forced to change those names for copyright issues. I have not read any of Leblanc's works so I do not know if Arséne Lupin is being presented correctly, but I am confident that Frogware have done their research.

I had alot of frustration with this game. While playing I spent alot of time stuck in the British Museum part of the game. Walking back and furth between puzzles that Lupin set up felt like a time sink, and in the story it was, but also confusing when trying to figure out which part of the massive museum has what in which section. This game just felt very tongue-in-cheek about the entire thing. At some parts it was hysterical but removed me from the immersion.

Even though I felt like I was being dragged through the mud by Lupin, knowing that regaurdless of what I did I would never hamper Lupin until the very end of the game. I did have fun with this game expecially near the end. If there were slight branching paths with solving the puzzles or figuring out conclusions, this versus would work very well.

There are parts in the game that made me smile. There were some clues left by Lupin which I, the player, had to take note which the game purposly avoids. They foreshadowed a later crime committed by Lupin, even further than the game wanted to offically mention. But I could not use this knowledge to make a trap for Lupin because of this limitation. There were also nods to the previous game, Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened, which I was happy to understand. And some of the other characters are fun to interact with expecially a lady in pink, I forget her name. I never experianced the Creepy Watson which this game is famous for, so who knows if you will experiance it too.

In summary: This game is good but not great. It is fun to deal with clues designed by a guy who want to get caught. But the middle part of the game is slow and bogged down by frustrating puzzles and being forced down a linear path until the VERY END. Get this game on a sale if you are unsure, it helps elevate any negative feelings. This game is still better than Sherlock Holmes and the Mystery of the Mummy. Even though I bash this game pretty hard, I still recommend it for those who want to complete the Frogware's game series.

One of the hardest and most time consuming detective games, the hardest of the sherlock holmes series, let me tell you something, without a guide this is impossible because the game doesnt require logic or mathematics (sometimes it does like all Sherlock Holmes games) but it requires lots of historical knowledge, you need to know things like when napoleon lost the war and where, who wrote a specific poem,etc and you'll never guess these if you dont already know them so use a guide

As for the story itself , it was really interesting and surprising, there's a nice plot twist involving Lupin in the game. I am a big fan of Arsene myself, i have read his books and i have his pic as my avatar, he is a very interesting character and you trying to catch a master thief makes it very interesting

The only problem i have with this game is sometimes its obvious how Arsene is gonna get in and where but the game just wont let you do anything about it, i would recommand it to puzzle solving lovers, arsene and holme fans
