I thoroughly enjoyed the first 4 or 5 "books" in the game, but then the formula started to get a bit repetitive, then boring. Although I think this will be fun in small doses, if you like playing games all the way through in a single sitting, this one will be tedious. I give the game high marks for original storylines that have a fun sense of humor, but did roll my eyes at a few of the scenarios as being preposterously 21st Century. The voice acting was crazy - with accents slipping from "proper" British to something you'd hear from a scullery maid, all in the span of a sentence. Overall not a bad game with some inventive ideas, but any idea gets stale if it's used over and over in a game.
I remember playing the first Sherlock Holmes game and really liking it. However I found this game to be very repetative and extremly easy. There was one or two hidden object scenes per story and they were all very easy. Not even the intreging stories could hold my interest. Overall I would say that this game is not a success.

Enjoyed these games for ease of playing. Graphics were nice and majority of the hidden objects were not difficult to find. While the stories are related to the game, they are not necessary to playing the games. I didn't find a wow factor in these games, just pleasant HOG's to play without having to think too hard.

If you liked the first Sherlock Holmes game, this one is even better! Great for fans of mystery as well as fans of Sherlock, this game is just challenging enough to not leave you bored, and is full of familiar places and faces in London. One thing that is a real plus is that you get the opportunity to play hidden object AND solve puzzles and mysteries along the way, so you aren't just following along in one rut the whole time.
I didn't find anything special about this one. The mini games were varied and not that difficult to solve but the identifying the criminal portion became tedious after about the third time you're asked to sort them then eliminate them. It was okay but there are other games out there that beat this one by a mile. Try it with FunPass or play the demo but I wouldn't spend the money on it.

This is a simple to find HOG and the mini games are also so easy to complete. If you are a fan of HO you will find this on the boring side. I think it can be a good teen game if they like finding objects. I have only completed the first section of cases & it bored me- don't know if I will finish this game. we shall see.

This game is a hidden object game, which I love. It's not very challenging. It's a nice kid friendly, leisurely game.

It is good there are several different crimes to solve since each one goes very fast. Some of the puzzles can be puzzling.

Not a whole lot of challenge here. Also a bit too short for my tastes. The clue system is nice. The storyline is interesting. But things were just too easy. Even the "find the difference", which I hate, was easy for me. Good for a funpass member but I wouldn't spend money on it.

Easy way to relax yet keep my eyes sharp after a day of computing at work.

As a Sherlock Holmes fan, I was excited to play this, but was quickly disappointed. I played the game in "minimal dialogue", but there was still way too much storybook. I can't imagine what the full dialogue mode was like, not to mention the 4 books you could read at the end of the game. The game was long playing, but repetitious. Every case followed the exact same format and after the first ten became a little on the boring side. There were also too many "find the difference" games (disguised as "find the clues"). These are not my favorites, but if you like this type of game, you'll be very happy. The part of the game I enjoyed the most was identifying the suspect. Not a bad game, but not exciting enough for me. Give it a whirl, you just might love it.
I played the timed version, so that made it a bit more challenging. I liked that there was a different puzzle with every level; not just a different version of the same puzzle over and over. The dialog was slow and predictable; but the mysteries were interesting.

I bought this game expecting it to be like Sherlock Holmes and the Hounds of the Baskervilles. It is not even close. It is ok for the first few books but becomes repetitive. I can play for a while, but not a game to try to play all the way through. My 10-year-old likes it, it is very kid friendly.

IMHO this game is no where close to the level of earlier Sherlock Homes games. It is simple and offers little or no challenge. I recommend that serious games give this game a pass and find something more challenging!

I was hoping it was going to be like the last Sherlock Holmes that just came out a couple of months ago, now that one was fun! This one....eh.....

I love it when a sequel is even better than the first edition! This is the case with Lost Cases of Sherlock Holmes 2 !! For me, from 3 stars (see my review) to 5 stars! The enhancements are noticeable from the start: You can immediately opt for relaxed mode; you can select from a several cases and work each independently (in original you had to go in order A-Z; here you can choose any from a set of options, say from A-E), and the tutorial is excellent! Maybe it's me (or I am becoming an Anglophile), but the voices and the graphics seem better, too! New sets of games and puzzles; less dialogue boxes when you click on certain HOs - both make game faster. More suspects means solving the caper is more challenging. Remember to look for Sherlock's pipe in each screen (both HO and compare pictures) - each is worth an extra clue. The pipe is even a Calabash - just like Holmes'! Lots of no-frill HO screens. Very enjoyable HOG!
Though not a dective genre fan, this makes dectuve wrok interesting. Nice graphics and variety of puzzles.

A simplistic game that combines two types of hidden object search (list search and find the differences) along with memory games and simple puzzles. Even on timed mode this game was quite easy; however, the chapter set up made the game seem fast paced and I could take breaks between the cases as needed. All in all a nice little time waster.

Loved this game! It did seem a little short compared to the first Sherlock Holmes. I liked that the idea of the game remained the same, this made it easy to get into the groove of the game.
