Ignore the blatant non-canon Sherlock Holmes story about ghosts, time-travel, demon dogs, etc and play for the puzzles.

About 4hrs of game play on hard mode.

More indepth gameplay than your average HO. Also, despite being a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ized supernatural reboot of Hound of the Baskervilles that makes no sense, the story is actually more logical than most HO games. Neither of these points mean much of anything because I don't get HOs and if they didn't come in bundles, I wouldn't buy them.

Quickly Holmes! The game is afoot! Also, help me find my 'iconic' hat, it seems to have gone missing!

This half hidden object / half adventure game takes place around the classic 'Hounds of the Baskervilles' story. The mechanics and gameplay are rather shallow and the puzzles for the most part are simple. The aventure part of the game suffers from the classic 'random item on everything' way of progressing.

Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles * 7/10

Another Hidden Object adventure involving Sherlock Holmes in one of his famous stories from the homonymous original novel. This time Frogware is just a publisher not the developer and this choice is evident in many ways inside the game.

This short adventure starts With Henry Baskerville asking Sherlock Holmes to help him to break the curse of his family which involves a big Hound that brutally kills all of the Baskerville family members from generations. Now, for those who are familiar with Sherlock Holmes and the original novel, yes: this is not exactly a faithful transposition but it's more like an interpretation... Which works good and bad at the same time. Good beccause the adventure in a big mansion where a Demonic dog is supposed to be is quite a good idea giving the game a good dark atmosphere. Bad because this interpretation involves magic and time travel (without any particular consequence, so it's just an excuse to have another room with riddles with a few minor graphic differences), which really don't belong in a Sherlock Holmes adventure.
As a Hidden Object game The gameplay doesn't need much explanation. You need to explore rooms or other ambiences, pick up items, interact with various objects and when you focus on determined zones you will be requested to find a long list of items very well hidden in the screen. Besides that you can find a very long list of puzzles and riddels, some of them are quite easy, but there are few VERY TOUGHT ones that forced me to get some help to deal with them.
This title can count on a good soundtrack most of the times trying to give a tense atmosphere, maybe even more than necessary. Besides that Holmes, Watson and Henry Baskerville will often talk during the adventure and not just with captions as already happened with the persian carpet, but we can hear the original voice cast for our two protagonist, which is really appreciated.
The worst side of this title I believe is the menu and game system, where you don't save because it's an automatic progress but you can't start a new game befor you completely finish it first unless you erase and create a new game profile... An operation that will delete your (ingame) achievements, which is the reason that took me 5 runs instead of just 2 to fully achieve the game.

+++PROs+++
  • GOOD ADVENTURE. All in all this title represent a good adventure, with tough Hidden Object sections, Some very Hard Puzzles and Riddles, with easier ones, various dialogues with characters and a nice soundtrack.
---CONs---
  • MAGIC. Actually This version of the Hound of the Baskervilles doesn't really suit a Sherlock Adventure mostly because it doesn't give an explanation at the end even though for all the time Sherlock says there Must be an explanation.
  • SAVE SYSTEM AND MENU. This game doesn't have a way to restart the game unless you finish it first and the only way to do that is to erase your ingame profile and make a new one. But this way you will lose all your ingame achievements, and I don't recall being informed of this at the moment.

Not a terrible game with many different types of puzzles to solve. Shorter in length of gameplay but great for kids or those just wanting to kill a few hours.

A bit disappointed in the final soultion of the case, but over all a fun little game. Holmes purists will not enjoy this though.

Sherlock Holmes is my favorite character ever. The Hound of Baskerville is an absolutely great book. So this game is obviously a good game. The puzzles are great, the hidden objects scenes are awesome. The dialogues could be a lot better but worth the try.

7/10 (9/10 if it was stable)

That's an actually better than expected HO/P&C game! Made me finish in virtually 1 sitting. If it wasn't for crashes it beats most of Artifex Mundi games.

+ Well done hidden object scenes and puzzles, not too hard, not too easy
+ Map that helps you navigate and move to locations with stuff to do
+ A bit of innovation in wielding "powers"
+ Story has no flaws (altough I cannot guarantee it follows the original) and connects the scenes nicely
+ Decent achievements
+ Just as long as it should be

+/- Music is 1 long looped track, but it doesn't bother too much, dialogues get repetitive after some time

- The game crashed a few times forcing pc reset (everything including task menager went unresponsive) AND it did not save progress so made me repeat rather big parts of it

Not a bad hidden objects game, need something to chill and do while you watch tv or do something? perfect game. However it literally does nothing to follow the classic novel.

Very fun pussel game no one can argue that the hound of baskerville is not a classic sherlock homles case.

a bit short is the only thing that i would say is against it.

9/10

Un gioco molto carino, ti prende subito, consiste nel trovare oggetti, risolvere enigmi, il tutto in una ambientazione pressochè spettrale ma sicuramente non paurosa. L'unico contro secondo me è la spiegazione soprannaturale dell'evento ma di sicuro apprezzerete il gameplay. Lo consiglio perchè vi divertirete di sicuro se vi piacciono questi tipi di giochi.

Sherlock Holmes and The Hound of Baskervilles è un'avventura punta e clicca hidden object liberamente ispirata all'omonimo libro di Ser Arthur Conan Doyle.

La trama è semplice: nei panni di Sherlock, il più grande investigatore del mondo, siete chiamati a risolvere il mistero che si cela dietro la maledizione che grava sulla famiglia Baskervilles.

Il gioco si discosta pesantemente dal libro originale, introducendo elementi sovrannaturali non presenti nel racconto di Doyle; non per questo però lo ritengo un pessimo titolo, anzi!
Gli enigmi sono ben fatti e abbastanza ostici e la storia è scorrevole, anche se la durata è breve (circa 4 ore per finirlo).
Consigliato agli amanti del genere, magari scontato o trovato in bundle.


L'unica nota negativa consiste proprio in Sherlock: è la rappresentazione più odiosa e saccente di questo personaggio che io abbia mai visto! =P

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.

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.

This is honestly one of my favorite HO games, not the least because I'm a Holmes fan and Hound of the Bakervilles is one of my favorite books. However, I will warn the Sherlock purists that this game has only a very passing relationship to the book so if you're looking for a HO-version of the classic, you very well might hate this. The story is really very different.

In terms of general gameplay this is a pretty standard game for the genre, with HO scenes mixed with minigame puzzles and the usual inventory-based puzzles. Where it departs from the norm is with a handful of special "powers" unlocked throughout the game that add to the puzzles; while in some cases it's apparent what you have to use and when, other times it took some thought and I appreciated that.

Puzzles and minigames themselves are average difficulty, not hard but not too easy, with the exception of one or two of the minigames that were just obnoxious; however there is a skip button or if you're intent on getting a no-skip achievement, there are solutions online (I confess to being guilty of looking up one or two solutions for that reason).

Sound and voice acting is nothing stellar but definitely better than the average, if you consider that most HO games have extremely poor voice acting.

All in all, a great game with some unique aspects that make it stand out. Worth it if you're a fan of this style of game.

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.

For a Frogwares game, this isn't bad at all. The story is appropriately ludicrous (and has nothing but the name in common with the book), but all in all it's rather inoffensive. The art is nice enough, the music and voice acting less so, but they get the job done without being jarringly bad. But most importantly, both the HOG scenes and the puzzles are decently done. I did find them to be mostly on the easier side even on the hard difficulty (with the exception of one or two puzzles towards the end that actually provided some challenge), but nonetheless they were enjoyable.

So for anyone who doesn't normally play HOGs: This might not be a good enough game to get introduced to the genre with. (Though it is much better than the average HOG slop nonetheless, which may be a useful thing to keep in mind.)

For HOG players: This is actually a fun game, with acceptable production values and enjoyable puzzles. The gameplay feels streamlined and doesn't ever get frustrating, plus it has some decent length. I'd still wait for a discount, but ymmv.

Keep in mind that if you're playing with smaller children you may wonna pre-screen. There are no real scares, but some gore, which is suspiciously absent from the Steam screenshots.

It is pretty much your average point and click adventure game with hidden object games and puzzles, I still enjoyed playing it though as I do have a fondness for point and click games, also our good friend Sherlock Holmes.
