A rather unique game as there are so many themes and locations involved, You are assisting Sherlock (call me Shirley!) Holmes to solve and crime and of course find out whodunnit and why. The avatar is fun and engaging and is great at very sneakily pointing you in the right direction. The venue is a vast area, with lots of differnetly themed and deconracted sections from an office for Holmes to the rainforest and the artic! With all that area you could cover you won't get everywhere, which is a shame as we'd have loved to see more of the venue, but hopefully we shall see that in their next game.
The game is 90 minutes and you need every second. You have a huge amount of information to process, so bring a decent sized team and all have a coffee beforehand! Luckily you have an inventory helper to add infromation and to help steer you in the right direction. Plus if a fast and frantic murder mystery isn't enough for you there are also some side puzzles and missions that where you can gain bonus points, If you love mutlitasking and data processing/puzzle solving then this is the game for you. Its a real rollercoaster game, and a must play.
