To break this curse before it strikes again, Henry Baskerville calls on the intrepid Sherlock Holmes and his colleague Dr. Watson.
follow the famed detective in this murderous hidden object adventure
travel to legendary Baskerville Hall and lift the curse surrounding the house
explore 35 dark and stunning locations to figure out the root of this evil

This is one game that has great replayability :) Probably as mentioned many times before that this game is worth buying to play the different levels and to see how many trophies you can get or just playing again to see how much better you can do with less hints or less time. The Hound of the Baskervilles has all the right game components in a HO game. Great job with this one!

It's long, which gives it good value. The mini-games were different and not impossible to solve except one. The compass rose puzzle. The need to visit other areas often helps keep it interesting. It is right up there with "Mystery Care Files:Dire Grove" and then some.

A really unusual game picking up objects and finding HO games to play. The awards you receive throughout the game is really cool, like an award for solving 5 HO games without using a hint, finding objects within a certain time limit, solving so many puzzles without skipping etc. The map was really handy as it meant you didn't have to walk through rooms to get to your next destination, you could just click on the location which required something to do. The last few puzzles in Hard mode were exactly that. I managed nearly all of them on my own, but the last three, I had to resort to walkthroughs and you tube clips to solve them. Whereas one reviewer said the game was short and took just over 2 hours in easy mode, hard mode took me 6 hours to complete - it could be because I was a bit slower, but I like to think it was because it was a lot more challenging. Deffo worth the effort though.
This game was loads of fun, and the graphics and storyline was awsome. This is a great buy.

Really enjoyed it! Reminded me of the snark busters, going back and forth, this time from the present to the past. Really interesting. Not so challenging that I needed help from the walkthrough, but you do have to go back and forth a few times to get all you need to proceed and finish the different quests. My 11 year old precocious gamer is doing quite well with it too.

I liked this game a lot. It was pretty challenging, a good story line, and the mini-games were some of the best I've seen. The only reason that I didn't give it five stars is because the ending was kind of anti-climactic. Also, I'm pretty sure the game would have been frustrating without the map option.

Fun game with lots of challenging objects to find. Probably could have done without the dialog sound because It can be read faster than listened to.Graphics are great and even though the plot stretches the original it was definitely a great yarn. Hope we get more of these.

I didn't know at first if I would like this game as the wooden graphics got in my way but the game was orginal, interesting and fast paced. It held my interest through out. I especially like the map that allowed me to click on a room and go there which saved mindless travel to and from rooms.

Loved the game though very challenging. I battled with some of the puzzles. Not child friendly at all.

Wow! This game is just terrific. The puzzles are involved and the hidden objects are well placed. I played the "Easy" mode - FYI It isn't. However, that is what makes this such a great game. Even the story fit well. I did rely on the map a lot to keep me from traveling in circles. Lots of rewards from the designers to make you feel good. I don't think I am up to the "Hard" level just yet. Playing this game requires lots of time. I had to leave it and come back so that I didn't just "skip" most puzzles (did skip one though). Give it a try - it is very well done.
This game is a lot of fun to play. It's very addicting because once you start you don't want to stop. It definitely makes you stop and think. This is not a mindless game.

This game is not as straightforward as it may originally seem - I thoroughly enjoyed it. The hidden objects are great fun too, the puzzles are sometimes complicated but not so much though that you lose interest. The game is brilliant! I wish there were more. Probably not a good one for young kids though due to the nature of the game and the great graphics, however my advice would be to play it first and then decide for yourself!
I really enjoyed this game; it really made me think. I only wish it had been longer.

Have finished playing easy mode. Will be trying the Hard mode. Enjoyed the story along with puzzles and hidden objects. Some puzzles were difficult so I just skipped them. Fun time.

I enjoyed playing this game... I have to say i played it on casual not timed. There was lots of game play... I thought it went a little fast but worth the money.

Loved it! I was always a Sherlock Holmes fan, and this did not disappoint me. Great HO game. Great graphics. Wonderful vocals. Marvelous storyline. Fun, fun, fun. Maybe a little too gory for the little ones though. Highly recommended.

I liked everything about this game. If I was stuck, it would show me how to continue, not like a lot of other. Some games I have played, I get to a spot after I buy it and I can not get any futher. At a boy to the crew that did this one. Keep the good work. Make more.

The game is well designed. It is challenging and requires intuition. The help mode is invaluable
