Very bad hidden object game. And even these objects are very obscure. E.g. barely visible foot prints that are just very slightly darker than the background. Or things hidden in almost black shadows.
The puzzles range from good to bad. Worst one: Guess a sequence of 10 random digits (from 0-9) in 5 tries. If you reset, the sequence is randomized again. Garbage.

This is a glorified version of the "find the hidden items in the picture" puzzles, with the added charm of looking and feeling like it was made by a middle-schooler using Visual Basic for the first time. Also features such cutting edge minigames as "reassemble the torn-up letter that was torn into twelve square pieces" and "spend five minutes laboriously scrubbing paint off of a surface by clicking and dragging your mouse." The fact that this game is available on Steam at all is a black eye for the service.

Persian Carpet is by far the worst game in the Sherlock Holmes series. Unlike the adventure games of the rest of the series, this title is a casual hidden object hunt. The environments and music are 100% recycled from The Secret of the Silver Earring, which came out years earlier. The pixel hunting is so extreme that you might as well be finding a needle in a haystack--from outer space. Seriously. The scenes are all zoomed out views of an entire room and the clues are things like "strand of hair" and "fingernail." I wish I was exaggerating. There's only one case and it's short and boring. The only somewhat interesting feature is the deduction board, where Holmes makes connections between different pieces of evidence, but it's so clunky and poorly formed that it loses all value. In fact, when I solved the mystery I actually thought I was stuck in a glitch until I randomly clicked the right thing to trigger the ending. And for reasons unknown, the ending fanfare music is "The 12 Days of Christmas."

I would honestly love to see a well-made and substantial hidden object game added to this series, but Persian Carpet is not it.

Godawful. Terrible terrible terrible. "Find-the-object" puzzles where you need to find, literally, a strand of hair in a complicated scene. Or, in another instance, a trace of dust that's barely a shade lighter than the ground it's resting on. And then the puzzle that broke me, and made me stop playing and delete the game from my computer: it instructed me to recreate a tatoo that a suspect had. Helpfully, it told me I could visit the suspect's file to refresh my memory of what the tattoo looked like. However, **there is no way to revisit a suspect's file in the game!***
