The game is in many ways extremely flawed. The GUI is a complete pain, especially in portions where Sherlock needs to be moved around with precision, as he requires several second to just turn around, even when trying to avoid guards, and the game world is filled with invisible walls. The fixed third-person perspective also often turns the game into pixel hunt. Besides that, the game also pointlessly makes the player manually select dialogue options, even though all need to be cycled through, and all are recording in the journal, so there's no need to ever revisit them.

Meanwhile, the story does make for an entertaining enough whodunnit, which isn't dampened even by the dismal voice-acting. At the end of each chapter the game makes the player pick the right clues to yield the correct deduction, which is a neat feature, as it prompts the player to pay attention and use their noggin, instead of just clicking on everything and letting Sherlock do the reasoning. For most part, the deductions are sensible, too, though all the contrived puzzles people use to lock their saves and whathaveyou certainly push the limits of believability.

I was all about playing all the Sherlock Holmes games, but this one is seriously taxing my patience. I actually saw the logic of the puzzles, even the safe combination one everyone seems to hate. I like that it's actually investigative, with testimony a major component of the overall puzzles. I was enjoying all of it... until the stealth/timed stuff started. I was frustrated as hell with the first one, to the point of using a video walkthrough, which I usually avoid like the plague. I got past that, and there was a second one. I got through that.

Then the forest. Where there are a dozen touchy, camera-angle-changing screen changes, a short, hard timer, and places where Sherlock WILL. NOT. F-ING. MOVE.

Despite liking the story, despite liking the puzzles, I may not pick this game up again, and I really can't recommend it to adventure gamers of any but the most stubborn, old-school stripe. When a point-and-click adventure game has timed movement puzzles that combine Nintendo Hard game mechanics with control schemes that would be embarrasing in a free Flash game... if you're into seeing all the Sherlock Holmes games, just play this one until you get to the stupid timed BS, then watch Let's Plays on YouTube instead of subjecting yourself to the bad choices of the developers.

The game doesn't look that bad for a point-and-click adventure. The movies were also nice especially since that meant I didn't have to curse over the useless GUI. The voice acting and music is quite enjoyable throughout the whole game. Unfortunately, there is no real sense of progress as you make it through the investigations. One of the puzzles is plain ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ with no obvious reasoning, even in walkthroughs. Movement is extremely clunky which is a pain when you need to sneak or solve a timed puzzle. The set of final questions - which are optional - were just guesswork due to the extreme lack of coherency throughout the rest of the game. There is just too little coherency for this game to work as entertainment.

Sherlock Holmes: The Silver Earring was overall a very enjoyable puzzle adventure game. The game begins with the death of a wealthy businessman and leaves you to investigate the scene. The game will then take you to multiple connected locations as you attempts to piece together the murder and uncover the assassin and the motive for the murder. The game is set over 5 days of investigations and each day will have you visit a location and search it for clues and solve one or two puzzles with ranging difficulties (some puzzles were quite hard and confusing), at the end of each day you will summarise your findings in a quiz, which for me was probably the hardest part of the game. I found the story to be quite engaging and interesting overall with a good range of characters and locations and was well suited to a Sherlock story.

Overall 'Sherlock Holmes: The Silver Earring' was a good solid adventure game which presented a well written story and some good puzzles, taking around 9 - 10 hours to complete and with a very conclusive ending I would highly recommend it for adventure game enthusiasts.

I've read little of the original stories from Conan Doyle but this game does get the feel of them. Less puzzle loaded and more clues and plot oriented, the game helps you keep track of the case by reviewing the main topics discovered at the end of each day. Also, the backgrounds are imensely developed, and so are the voice acting and speech of the characters. What a change from the shabby Mystery of the Mummy.
