A nice a slightly-different-from-the-usual-ones Hidden Object game. Story is interesting and puzzles are never boring. Not too easy, not too difficult. Some achievements are bugged\broken\bad-designed. I don't regret having spent almost 4 hours on this and totally would buy and play another Hidden Object game about Sherlock Holmes.

Nice HO game, but the original story has been mutilated. There's always a logical explanation in S.H. stories, never any magic or supernatural forces.

While the game takes several liberties with the classic Arthur Conan Doyle mystery, and puts an interesting spin on it, its spirit and/or heart is in the right place. I got the sense that the developers really enjoyed creating this point and click, hidden object tale. The puzzles are done cleverly, and without being too easy or mind numbingly hard. One or two of them actually gave me pause in a good way. The colors are wonderfully lush, the atmosphere eerie, the music pretty, and the vocal talent/cast does a good job from beginning to end. Watson's dialogue is a treat in a few scenes. However, I won't spoil it for you. I finished the game within a few hours and was not disappointed in the least. Enjoy & Happy Gaming! :)

Sherlock Holmes and The Hound of The Baskervilles is a casual eye spy & puzzle game along the lines of the Midnight Mystery game series. It is a good addition to the genre, although it did come off a little bit overly supernatural for a Sherlock Holmes story and Holmes never really did provide any explanation to contradict those supernatural events. Still, a good story and well paced.

Great game of puzzles. Most are easy, but some are a challenge at the right time.

The voice acting is horrible. No wonder they have an achievement just to watch the whole thing without skipping. No one would watch them otherwise...

Nice game to get 100% achievements on and not too much work getting either.
