A really bad example of an Point&Click Adventure.
The gameplay is more like a escape room gameplay, you click yourself from the first person trough different screens and move like this. To be honest, i like this featue and in this game i never had a " find the hotspot" game inside. But on the other hand the graphics are pretty bad, well okay its from 2002, but still its very pixelated etc. You never interact with other people, its more like already said, l an escape room game where you solve riddle after riddle to get into the next room. Its pretty hard to figure out what you have to do, even if its very easy to find all necessary items, but very hard to use them actually, since the graphics dont allow you insight mostly on what to do. But they are well, pretty logical . I had not that often troubles to solve them.
The story really sucks. I forgot what was the story about pretty quickly. Not that i didnt payed attention, the story didnt actually matter that much. The atmoshpere is actually pretty good, but the main character is giving comments on the current situations like he is watching it from far away. Example: a big mummy comes out of a room(more like a cheap jumpscare) and he comments it as his life isnt in danger at all.
The voiceover is bad, but in many different languages.
I heard about having crashes, etc. I didnt had any but you have been warned.
I actually managed to finish the game in 4.9 hours, but its just because i stucked at 1-2 of the last riddles for a while.
Recommended? No not alone, but in the complete collection, yes. If you like very good riddles then give the games a shot, since they are more likely realistic and logical than in other point&click games. The game itself is about a little below average. You can play it, atleast the riddles are good.
So i give the game thumbs up to buy the whole pack. Otherwise, nah .

It’s a good game…kind of… you are Sherlock walking in the big old mansion looking for clues doing puzzles and other stuff to solve the mystery. So you have game play like Myst BUT puzzles are much more easier if you have a problems in beating point and click games without a walkthrough (like me) Sherlock Holmes mystery of the mummy is a game that you can probably beat all alone without any help…just look on the floors and ceilings carefully because in some point you can get stuck only because there is a item on the floor. Game have some puzzles not bested on “put these item to the hole” formula so there is variety. if you get stuck there is some nice music to listen in the game. Mansion look nice…Ok graphic sucks but rooms are interesting and it’s fun to look at it. Main Character is written ok and you can tall he is a Sherlock the only problem is that he is not saying much. Story is simple but is there and you can really want to know what happened to the guy that is missing. Walking in the game is kind of clunky but you can get over it. Game have some problems with stability on W7 but it is not the problem for me because my laptop has windows xp and it works fine on it. Overall Sherlock Holmes mystery of the mummy PC ver. It’s an ok little game that is worth trying if you like games like Myst but you suck at it BUT do not buy it for full price 9.99 eur is a joke buy on steam sale for a dollar or something.

I bought all SH games and decided to start at the beginning, and I'm very disappointed. And yeah, I know this game is old but that is not a very good excuse.
You can only play it at fullscreen (in which everything is pixelated and hard to look at - and I only have a 13'' screen, which is considerably small), you can't alt+tab away from the game unless you're in for restarting it (you can't even access the Steam layer) and it happens a lot that the game crashes at cutscenes (that stuff you spent the last hour working on? Lost!).
If that is not enough to harden your way through, items are very very well hidden, which is not a bad point per se, but I found they were just overly hidden for it to be fun. I don't know whether this was made on purpose (since Sherlock's primary skill is observing it makes sense to make it hard to "see" useful stuff) or not.
Also, the puzzles are really difficult (difficult enough they're no longer fun) and most of the time will require you take paper and pen (since you can't alt+tab out of the game) and spend some long time on them, which could be fun if you like it (like I do), but, in this case, it just isn't.

Yes, the story is fine, the way you can get letters (backstory) is well thought of, moving through rooms/levels is a very good mechanic, but the bad points weight, by far, much more than the good points.
So, unless you enjoy very difficult and time-consuming games, don't spend your money on this.
If you get this in a SH bundle and need to check it out just because you're a fan, don't be afraid to have a walkthrough ready on your phone!

All the bad reviews are true. This game is dreadful. It has poor grainy resolution, horrible voice acting and tormenting ears-piercing background music. Sherlock has an irritating nasal British accent and his remarks are obvious or silly statements, The puzzles are quite easy, but not all of them make sense, and it's easy to miss items. And why make a puzzle game from first person view? It was a bad idea, especially with the oversensitive mouse (obviously, this game was made for mechanical mouses).

And the game crashes, too.

This game takes place in the 19th century, and apparently it was made back then, as well.

Avoid this game at all costs. 3/10.

This game hasn't aged well, and I doubt it was ever much fun to begin with. Moving around and picking up evidence is a total pixel hunt, and the game as a whole handles poorly. It's incredibly easy to get stuck because the game wants you to do some random illogical interaction to move on which you usually find by just clicking on everything until something happens. Dying and end of level cutscenes crash the game on windows 7. The voice acting is so bad it's actually pretty funny. The story was almost acceptable, but Holmes' customary explanation of the mystery at the end was badly done and I couldn't understand it. I wouldn't play this unless you really want to beat the whole Holmes series, or you bought the bundle and feel like you might as well try it.
