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.

Il più debole della serie finora. La struttura non si adatta benissimo a Sherlock Holmes, praticamente son quattro sezioni di puzzle e indovinelli infiniti. E a volte le soluzioni non sono per niente intuitive e troppo lineari. Esempio su tutti identificare quattro quadri OVVI per cui non ti serve nessun aiuto se hai esplorato bene una sezione precedente, ma il gioco non te li fa attivare se prima non hai chiesto un aiuto a qualcuno anche se non ti serve... e capita diverse volte qualcosa del genere in cui sei già con la testa alla parte dopo ma il gioco è talmente poco dinamico che comunque se non hai fatto un passo inutile che è richiesto ti blocca lì. Sono difetti anche dei giochi precedenti ma è ovvio che man mano che la srie diventa più moderna pesano di più. Uniche sezioni davvero soddisfacenti (per la maggior parte) le due alla Torre di Londra dove davvero c'è un po' di investigazione incrociata ed esplorazione.
Scrittura in generale molto più scadente (lo "humor" è tristissimo), migliorano invece navigazione e grafica. Gli ambienti, essendo molto specifici, sono spesso praticamente in scala e risultano belli e ben fatti.
Ma per ora per quanto invecchiato male e tecnicamente un po' antiquato il secondo gioco, Silver Earring, rimane di gran lunga il migliore della serie come avventura di Sherlock Holmes che cattura bene lo spirito delle storie di Arthur Conan Doyle. Questo lo consiglio solo a chi già gioca la serie per semplice completismo, lo sconsiglio totalmente come introduzione. Prendete Silver Earring. O magari il primo, che a me però su Windows 8 non gira.

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.

Isn't the strongest in the newest Sherlock Holmes series. There was some really difficult puzzles that require out of the box thinking. Some puzzles can be solved easily if you are knowledgeable in European history, I am not, these puzzles are cool additions and are very rewarding, because they can be solved multiple ways.

The game's focus is obviously on the brainteasers and puzzles Arsene Lupin gives you, so the story suffers, and it doesn't have a sense of intrigue or motivation other Sherlock Holmes games have.

However, if you liked the other Sherlock Holmes games, it is definitely worth the price.

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 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, Lupin was actually with you during the investigation and you yourself would never notice it. I am a big fan of Arsene myself, i have read his books and i have his pic as my avatar, he is a vbery 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

Decent mystery game with a fairly fluent story and an atmospheric game world that seems too clean for London at 1895. The option of switching between first and third person view was necessary for a couple of moments in the game. The puzzles themselves were fun for the most part with a couple of real stinkers in there - with some points requiring that you switch areas, the clues need to quite clear regarding this or you'll spend pointless time examining the nearby environment.

Idiotic plot. Slow, tedious, repetitive dialogues/monologues. The characters are a parody.

Useless actions - "Watson, go get a hansom"; "Sherlock, go get a lamp" etc. (why not "Sherlock, now it's time to go to the bathroom" while you're at it).

The riddles are an insult to my cat's intelligence.

Avoid, avoid, avoid.

I found this game a bit to much. It has to many posibilities and places to go to find clues. I think you could like this game if you like having a lot of information in your head and a good memory however.

Sherlock Holmes and Arsene Lupin... this game should be great, yeah? Well this is just as good as fries with pasta, you might enjoy both but mixed together are horrible. That is because the plot is really terrible : Arsene Lupin tries to steal British treasures in an effort to prove French are better. Never mind that Lupin in his canon is an anti-hero, i.e. a character that performs acts that are normally immoral (theft) but does so towards a good cause. Also, let's forget that the French and British empires had put their differences aside and in less than a decade after the timeline of this game, they would form an alliance (Entente). Even if you are willing to disregard these, I guarantee you that you will be disappointed by some of Lupin's escapes which seem more like out of a child's cartoon than the witty adventures of Arsene. And finally, the ending is the biggest let down of them all, with some "gentleman" non-sense going around, completely disregarding pretty much everything that has happened previously in the story.

The puzzles and object finding are tedious and not really interesting. A redeeming factor are some great settings and voice acting in locations such as the London Tower, the British Museum and the National Gallery. Unfortunately, those are not enough to save this title.

Avoid, unless you are extremely bored.

Sure this won't mean much to many people but sadly Arsené Lupin is not well portrayed. No longer is he his gentleman self but in this game is commiting crimes to apparently prove how stupid the English are. Very unlike Arsené Lupin.

Altro ottimo gioco dedicato a Sherlock Holmes e altro tempo speso bene.L'avventura che andremo ad affrontare risulterà lunga e piacevole con enigmi mai particolarmente complicati a patto di esaminare con una certa calma tutti gli ambienti di gioco.Enigmi che nella maggior parte dei casi sono inerenti alla storia La trama come sempre risulta sufficientemente piacevole, peccato pero' che con un piccolo sforzo in piu' si potrebbe aumentare l'interessa della stessa ed appassionare ancora maggiormente il giocatore.Naturalmente giocato e terminato essendo un'appassionato del genere, gioco che consiglio anche a chi non particolarmente avvezzo a questo genere di giochi a patto di dedicargli il giusto tempo.

Ah, "Holmes: Nemesis". In fact, who the heck is Arsene Lupin? Isn't Moriarty usually Holmes' nemesis? Ah, well.
This game is different from all other Holmes games, in that you know who the culprit is, you just need to catch him.
As such, you pretty much spend your time playing his wretched 'game' of cat-and-mouse, where Lupin deliberately leaves clues to his next hit, and you have to follow along.

Like "Holmes: Awakened", you get standard features like Holmes Vision and Teleportation, which are very handy in the game. But, unlike other games, this game involves a lot of mathematical work. AUUUGH. Maths.
How much Maths? Not a lot (i.e. counting, decrypting, mass conversions, etc.), but it gets rather repetitive and painful, especially in the library-museum part.
And a lot of the time, you'll be following these cryptic rhymes to decode what the heck Lupin has installed for you.

In terms of characters, some of them are quirky, like the museum curator, and some of them a bit of a pain in backside, like Watson. Darn it, man! Why do you have to be hungry at a time of crisis?
But the Queen and Lupin part -- I don't think I'll ever get that out of my memory. Not that it was mesmerising, but it was -- "unorthodox", to say the least.

Interfaces haven't changed a lot since "Holmes: Awakened". But you can certainly do a lot more things this time, with the amount of activity Lupin forces you you to complete. This means great variety in the puzzles in the game. But I still don't like the text-response puzzles.

Plot-wise, not too heavy. I mean, you already know who the culprit is, so I guess this one's a more action-adventure than an actual story driven game. Good thing? Well, different.

So, I'll give this one a 8/10. Could be better, but is alright where it stands.
