Its an classic, adventure. More like an escape room game. The riddles are really, really hard to figure out what to do.

I picked this game up during a sale awhile ago because the series seemed interesting. I figured I would start at the beginning. On it's own merits though this is a pretty terrible game.

In it's defense it's also a really OLD game. And it's not like it was easier to make them back then either.

A good adventure game should be reasonably intuitive. At some point it's going to degenerate into click everything in your inventory on every object you can, but it doesn't have to be that way all the time.

Mystery of the Mummy on the other hand has objects that are very easy to miss. Sherlock himself would have trouble uncovering the mystery of the missing item in the inventory.

The dialog is so cheesy that I almost want to call it a feature.

At some point I should finish this, but I didn't really feel like it engaged me.

I dont think this was considered good in 2002, which means its definetly not good now. The game is just littered with pointless impossible puzzles that dont make any sense and defy the laws of physics, and when your not doing those you are going on a wonderful pixel hunt with the thing your looking for being a tiny black dot in the bottom of the screen. The world is literally a panorama shot where you 'look around' for things to infuriate you more.

The only way I actually managed to somehow finish this was by watching another person suffer on you-tube as the final puzzle will take around 40mins to solve (Correctly) and the first time you do it correctly it will fail you anyways.

If you are getting the Sherlock Collection (Which I would highly recommend as every other Sherlock game is Fantastic) then by all means give it a go, but as a game by itself.......dont.

Definitely not the best of the lot. Many puzzles lack clues and are not at all logical. The in game voices are stereotypical and even comical, and the game crashes at almost every cut-scene. It's a short game though, and playable with a guide, not bad for a break.

Ah, adventure games. Such a prevalent genre for PC gaming in the 80's and 90's. But why such a sharp decline? Play this game and find out.
