If you also set a star rating, the star rating won't be shown anywhere but will still be used when calculating the game's overall score on Escape The Review.
Really good fun from the time you arrive at the unusual location, a place to grab a drink beforehand on site and then you're inducted to the game and off you go. 3 areas of puzzles of nice variety and difficulty, handy hint system and video and audio interjections from the cast. Nice that you get your own route and pace and are not being herded through with another team hot on your tail. Nice merch to buy at the end. As a Sherlock fan I loved it but you don't need to have watched it to enjoy it.
Amazing set work, great immersion, and I quite enjoyed the integration of the Sherlock IP. It's not quite the brilliance of Time Run, but still fun.
A decent game (have loved the Time Run games in the past) marred by the packaging. It all felt a bit processed but I guess that's the deal with this sort of franchise based game. The puzzles were great, trying to sell us key rings and jumpers afterwards not so much.
Gave benefit of the doubt at the time, but it seems the same problems exist 6 months later.
Bad and non-nonsensical puzzles, confusing story, broken puzzles/tech. Staff that didn't care about these issues afterwards (frosty would be putting it politely), and haven't fixed anything I raised since. High price is final kick in the teeth for a game that didn't deserve half the cost. Has put a number of people I know off of escape rooms where this was one of their first games.

In our briefing we were told we’d travel around London very fast. They weren’t wrong! What starts as a very unassuming opticians shop quickly becomes an exciting briefing at 221B Baker Street (the iconic residence of Sherlock Holmes). We then rushed off to a series of fantastic locations from the TV series such as St. Barts Hospital, Mycroft’s office, and a brilliant (if a little creepy!) museum of medical instruments.
