Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles
Great Hidden Objects Game
Great game with great HO scenes not to mention it adds a great twist to the Sherlock Holmes theme. Definitely a must play for all fans of the genre.

This is one of the rare games that is both interesting and user friendly. I'm still playing it and it only gets better. The help given does not let this game become frustrating as happens in other games that force you to play it totally with a walkthrough.
I wish all the Hidden Object games was like this!!

Come, Watson, Come! The Game is Afoot!
I'll try to be brief here, but it's hard to because I absolutely loved this game. I'm a true Holmesian through and through, having read the books (including the Hound of the Baskervilles) and played all of the games here--and by far, this one is in my top 3 games of one Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson.
The game play was very fun and easy to follow, without getting to nitpicky or difficult to understand what to use where. Unlike some other games, the character's voices didn't annoy me, nor did Holmes's or Watson's appearances. Baskerville Hall was beautiful, as was the graphics and the puzzles and games were very fun.
Though I did not like the supernatural aspects, I loved this game. I don't think Holmes would have appreciated the supernatural-esque in the game, but it sure was different than the novel and I applaud the developers for pulling off a strange storyline rather well. But that's me pointing out a change that they had to make so it wouldn't be dull; I am the type that tends to lean towards a stricter interpretation of the books, but this game won me over without a catch.
Overall, I loved this game and I continue to play it even after I've finished it--after all, why let such a good game go to waste?

Must have for Sherlock Fans!
Great Game! 2 modes of play to choose from, awards are given throughout the game for accomplishments, great graphics, wonderful VOs, plenty of HOS and the puzzles are nicely done with a wide range of difficulties. The storyline is true to Sherlock Holmes stories and is a nice refreshing change of pace. Can't wait to play again on expert mode!

A Game Worthy of Sherlock Holmes
I join with the other reviewers who have given this game high marks. In addition to the well-documented facts that the puzzles and hidden object scenes are challenging without being frustrating - and the excellent storyline - there is the element of time travel. Rooms that morph into their past appearance and the murder scenes, are a real plus to the entertainment factor. The supernatural atmosphere of the story is fun as well. Best of all, the ending is smooth and doesn't leave you hanging. This is an all-around great game.

number 1 HOB ON MY LIST
I loved this game, it kept close to the sherlock and watson chacters and story line, but gave it enough twist to keep you playing, I play all games with the sound off; so have no opinion on that- but graphics were great! I hope they come out with another one soon. I bought it and think you should too!

Excellent game over all
I agree with the other reviewers - this is really a strong overall game. It's challenging but not too frustrating. The interactive map is really great and super helpful. The multi-layered tasks that include collecting coats of arms, earning medallion pieces, switching between past and present to complete tasks and finally completing HOS. There was a great mix of HOS and other puzzles. Some of the puzzles are easy, some medium, some hard. Nice mixture and none so ridiculously difficult that you got overly frustrated but some definitely took more time and made you think. My only complaint and it was a small one is there were ALOT of spoken scenes between the 3 main characters but.... I didn't downgrade the overall game because you can skip them if you don't want to listen to them all. The voice overs were very good quality at least. It's a great buy even at full price.
