Geïnspireerd door De avonturen van Sherlock Holmes Geschreven door Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Na de dood van Heer Montcalfe, schakelt zijn dochter Elisabeth de hulp in van de beroemde detective Sherlock Holmes om het mysterie van haar vader's dood op te lossen. Terwijl zijn trouwe assistent Doctor Watson geniet van een welverdiende vakantie, besluit Holmes alleen naar het landhuis te gaan. Hij zal al zijn vaardigheden moeten gebruiken om de raasels van het landhuis op te lossen. Maar dan zal hij ontdekken dat er een verschrikkelijk geheim huist achter deze mysterieuze zaak.

In The Mystery of the Mummy, zal je worden ondergedompeld worden in een ongelovelijk avontuur vol met mysteries en nieuwe ontwikkelingen. Trek de schoenen aan van de beroemde detective Sherlock Holmes en wees er klaar voor om vele vallen te ontwijken en raadsels op te lossen. Een mysterieuze moord, vele verdachten en de beroemde mummie zorgen voor een zaak die er niet heel gemakkelijk uit ziet...

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!

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.

After playing all of the Sherlock games from 'The Silver Earring' onwards, I wanted to go back right to the beginning and play them all through chronologically before the new one due out this year. I'm giving this one the thumbs down as much as I want it to be a thumbs up because of so many speed humps that actually interrupt the flow of the game. Probably the first thing to mention is the continuous crashing, particularly at the end of cut scenes and chapter ends. MAKE SURE YOU SAVE OFTEN. I cannot reiterate that point enough. Much frustration comes after completing a devilish puzzle to have the game crash and redo it ALL over again. However, these crashes can be overcome with the good ole ESC key, for the most part.
The second most disappointing element is the visuals in relation to the difficulty of the game. I appreciate the age of a game and God knows how many adventure games I have played over the years but to find a hairpin, for example, on a floor that frankly is blurry and the object resembles a smudge is poor form. Being penalised via having to consult a walkthrough so often for locating objects is not on. On the plus side the story is engaging enough to make you restart again and again and finish it but it feels a chore to 'get through'. The voice acting/recording is atrocious (knowing in the future this becomes its' main selling point) and the dialogue itself is poorly written. After almost no interaction with characters the game finishes with a huge cutscene that wraps it all up with way too much assumption and frankly insults the gamer who has been there all the way by solving the whole thing and saying goodnight with silent credits. Fans of the games NEED to play this one to experience the whole saga but this one cannot have it's age to blame because in its era there were many other adventure games that got this formula right with less frustration. Anyways, onto the next game :)

Old, awkward and broken controls. Unintuitive interface with sub-standard... everything. I mean the game feels so 1st gen... Not one that stood the test of time that's for sure. Of course, all this had to start someplace, Kinda like a bad Atari 2600 game: It exists for a reason.

Even for 2002, this was a horrible game. There were a few properly challenging, yet fun puzzles, but for the most part they were mundane and unintuitive. The voice acting is some of the worst I've ever heard, to the point where I almost decided on playing the game on mute. Also, the game literally crashes after almost every custscene.
