+ interesting (albeit really complex) plot
+ good-ish visuals, especially the interiors
+ excellent music
+ fairly player-friendly UI
+ I liked questioning witnesses and finding clues

- some puzzles are timed
- quite difficult quizzes at the end of each day (had to use UHS-hints for all of them)
- a boatload of characters, easy to mix them up

The progress the Franco-Ukrainian studio Frogwares has made between their first game, Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Mummy from 2002 and The Silver Earring, released 2 years later, is astounding. While the first one was a flawed, mostly cheap looking and generic first person adventure game, more abusing than using the Sherlock Holmes theme and character (Wael Amr himself admitted something along those lines in one of the interviews if I remember correctly) - the studio seemed to learn quickly from their mistakes - and the far better budget the predecessor somehow assured is obvious. This time it's catering as much as possible to the Holmesians and The Silver Earring, and a much more enjoyable, complex experience, if not without its flaws.

Gameplay is more or less typical point & click fare. Pixel hunting wasn't entirely eliminated, but is much, much more rare and less annoying than in the original. Inventory juggling is quite minimal and rare. Using items with people is rare and in perhaps all occasions but one, prompted by Sherlock, and using them together in the inventory itself. All the dialogues, clues, hints & papers are kept by the game and integrated in a sort of a "quiz" system, where you answer a series of questions using them as "proof" for the questions you're posed. While not perfectly executed, forced, and, perhaps, slightly clunky, it's an interesting system in any case. The game ensures you have everything you need I guess, by keeping you in one place / room / area until you find everything, which helps progress I guess. The puzzles are adequate, logical except for one with a safe (oh, you'll know which one it is) which requires a strange leap of logic. Though having a random character who just happens to dabble in inventions in the game is as cheesy a premise for introducing them as it gets. In general, it didn't thrill me, it didn't annoy me. OK enough.

Walking is an annoyance, however, moving is jittery in general, and clicking on a hotspot that's supposed to lead you to a place where the perspective changes doesn't guarantee that you'll get there, as Sherlock is prone to random bouts of turning in place indefinitely. Though you won't get stuck because of it. It just makes the one timed event and 2 that require timing more annoying than they should be for some.

The story & scenario are OK, and while it's not the best & original Sherlock scenario you'll ever see, it's fairly complex, with some good sides, and won't annoy the hell out of you like the first game. The voice acting is more convincing than last time (that's not saying much), though how and why couldn't they find a kid to play a kid, instead of an abysmal attempt by a grownup actor is beyond me - it depends on the character really.

Graphically it's a mixed bag, with character models ranging from pretty detailed (Holmes) to completely off (Watson... whose character isn't executed exactly flawlessly either). Some scenes are more or less nicely or adequately rendered, some feel rushed & unconvincing. Similar with cutscenes, generally unimpressive, but then you run into the "dominoes" one -> effective, very well directed & executed, showing there's quite some potential inside the team. And the outro was at the time, and maybe still is, one of the longest in a game ever (around 20 minutes... seemed shorter to me, but it might as well have been). While there are mild glitches here & there, miles ahead of its predecessor.

Music? Dvořák, Grieg, Schumann, Tchaikovsky. Need I say more? Well implemented too.

Overall, while, as a point & click adventure game, it will never be among your all time favorites, being a pretty much average adventure game as a whole, it has its good sides and there's no real reason for a p&c buff or a Sherlock fan not to seek it out (preferably in a bundle), so it gets a tentative recommendation... there are worse things to spend an afternoon on.

The gameplay was a bit clunky but still fun. Make sure to save often or you may have to restart the game from the beginning at a certain point in the game.

Can I say this game is good? Perhaps, but with certain conditions.
Firstly, it's FAR better than "Holmes & the Mystery of the Mummy" and "Holmes & the Hound of Baskerville", in terms of quality, character and logical conclusion.
Secondly, it does challenge players usings its puzzles and quizzes. Now, challenge is good for these types of games, but sometimes, the answers don't quite make sense. Maybe it's just me being daft? Yeah, probably.
But the game isn't particularly long, in terms of quantity of puzzles, but they are certainly sharp enough to be considered adequate.

So, graphics are better then previous games. But the cut scenes and navigation can still be stuttery.
Like, whenever you want to talk to people, you have to approach them from a certain angle, and rotate yourself awkwardly.
And if you want to walk somewhere, sometimes layering can be strange, and you walk through chairs and all.
But, that's not the point of a puzzle game, I suppose.

Navigation is once again an odd concern. The game must be played in third person. Not only that, you have to click somewhere to make Holmes walk there, and double click to make him run (you can only run when outside or nobody is around). Particularly painful, especially in the forest part of the game.
But still, a puzzle in itself perhaps.

Along with puzzles are the quizzes.
Basically, at the end of each in-game day, you get quizzed on everything you've collected in the day, from the clues you find, to the dialogue of people you talk to.
Mind you that answers are not exclusively restricted to that day's resources but can actually include information as far back as the first day. This means you'll need to remember what all evidence contains, and link it with any new evidence found. Painful, especially if you can't remember things in pristine detail, like me.
At least there's a walkthrough on GameBoomers.

There are various characters that are involved, some providing more information than others.
Lestrade seems particularly friendly toward Holmes though.
Interface isn't too bad, seeing as you can read your notes and do a puzzle simultaneously.
Very useful, and the best part is that the puzzle saves your progress, unlike "Holmes & the Mystery of the Mummy", so you can go and find more clues, come back and finish the fight.

I find that the explanation at the end is quite complicated, and twist-inducing.
Would've been better if it didn't break my computer every few minutes.
Like, literally. I'd finish the credits or walk into a room, and I'd just get a black screen. Maybe a hardware fault regarding specs, but it ran fine for most of the game.
But otherwise, it was alright for a game of its state.

I'll hand this one a respective 7/10. Not the best, but certainly not the worst.
It turns out Frogwares actually changes the character models for Holmes and Watson in the later games, so at least Holmes looks like he's had enough sleep.

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.

8.5/10

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.

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.

I enjoyed this, it was challenging, to say the least. I had to use walkthrough many times, since I just wanted to continue futher. The story was interesting, but some of the quizzes were too hard and annoying to pass.

A complete farcry from the 1st game. Better graphics, better voice acting, better gameplay and the use of music from actual classical composers. You get quizzes at the end, it may annoy most but it's a murder mystery, it makes you pay attention to the details and use your brain.

Sherlock holmes the sliver earring is just another game for point and click fans if youre not just pick it up if you want it. This game story is that a few people are murdered and the great Sherlock Holmes must solve the case. Now being a Sherlock holmes game this does have great script writing which i did enjoy but some game elements did piss me off. There are stealh sections which are abysmal and one task for you too make in under time.The game works well all you do is talk to people and solve puzzles which are smart and really do make you think.This game of course has bad graphics but it doesnt matter because the inviroments do look impressive. So overall its a game you should pick up only in a sale i give it a 6/10

While miles better than their first Sherlock Holmes game, this second outing is still not good. The plot's a bit of a jumble, and the items you have to find far too hidden. There's also no first person option, so most of the game is spent watching Holmes walk slowly around the large areas.

Frogwares gets better though! In fact every game after this is well worth playing, even the silly Hound of the Baskervilles.

Slow animations (laggy walk, slow doors) and missing tips made me quit playing (what can you use and where, there should be some kinda of goal like "find item(s) X to make person X talk". I'm just not the guy who likes to pointlessly walk around with no goal)

Either it's too difficult or I'm a lousy detective. There're some bad moments, clumsy animations and poorly made models. The game's age is not an excuse.

Локализация хороша только голосом Ливанова. В ней хватает ошибок и опечаток, некачественной актерской игры и значительного несоответствия субтитров произносимым фразам. Голос Лестрейда вообще ужасен и неестественнен.

Si l'on met de côté la maniabilité assez horrible par moment ce jeu reste très interessant.
Les énigmes sont assez difficiles et variées. L'histoire jusqu'au bout nous tient en haleine.
Pour moi le seul reproche à faire de ce jeu est vraiment la difficulté de déplacer Sherlock Holmes ... Celui-ci par moment n'avance plus pour un " obstacle " imaginaire alors que l'on clique bien là où le déplacement est indiqué .
Et à certaines étapes cruciales de l'histoire ça pourri un peu le jeu.

This should have been the first Holmes game by Frogwares. It's a very standard PNC adventure, but here the puzzles make sense and the game politely doesn't let you continue if you've missed something. Insofar as that goes, it's not unwinnable by design except for a small bug that you'll probably never encounter.

While not particularly difficult, the worst bits are the two timed events and those are your only chances to prematurely lose the game. Other than that, it's great fun with some decent voice acting and the plot is full of the expected twists. As a word of warning, the game does quiz you after each chapter to ensure you're paying attention.
