Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet 2.3 5 14 14
Not my sort of game, at all I really tried to like this game. There is a murder and the body is found wrapped in a Persian Carpet. You (Sherlock Holmes) have to go to Scotland Yard to read interview statements, review suspects and read the case file. You travel to locations to look for clues and then take those items back to Baker street to examine under the microscope and analyze. There is also a deduction board where you can connect clues to suspects and locations. Pretty complicated, but that wasn't the problem. I began playing in the hardest of three modes. Big mistake. Barely got through the first level. Restarted in the easiest mode, but it was still a disaster. There a number of things I disliked about this game, but I will limit my comments to the two most egregious. First, the clues you need to find in the HO scenes are often microscopic or impossible to find for some other reason. You are given an outline of each item at the bottom of the screen and, if you move the cursor over the outline, the games give you the name of it (e.g. blue filter, ashes, footprint). This doesn't help. I blew through most of my hints trying to find stuff. Second, at certain locations a puzzle piece and/or gears will appear at the bottom of the screen. This indicates that the scene contains a puzzle or that some action is needed. Here is the problem, it is not as obvious as you would think. You can move your cursor over the entire screen, but if you miss the tiny area where it needs to be, the cursor does not change to the gears, indicating click here. I could not find the action locations and sometimes could not figure out what to drag on top of the puzzle piece to access the puzzle. On the very first HO scene, I really thought my computer had frozen up and was about to ctrl-alt-del to get out. FYI, you need to click on the very small box of matches the Help Arrow is pointing to. I played through the second level and deleted the game from my hard drive. Sorry, I like and want to encourage the development of games that are 'out of the box,' but this was IMHO horrible.

Irritating, frustrating game Poor instructions, frustrating, irritating!!! May 29, 2012
The WORST game I've ever played. And I've played some stinkers. The level of frustration this game produced was far in excess of the fun it provided. I wouldn't even recommend it to my worst enemy as payback. Storyline is almost nonexistent; what is there is boring. By the time I finished (quit), I didn't care about the victim or finding his killer. Gameplay is clunky and awful. Less a "puzzle" game than a badly realized hidden object game. Of the few actual puzzles, several were "been there, done that" familiar. In Easy mode, the hint system FORCES players to use their first hint, even if they don't want to. Clues do not respond well to being clicked on; (in one scene I clicked footprint repeatedly in various areas of the print and the game did not respond. When I gave up and used a hint--it showed the exact spot I had been selecting.) July 12, 2014
Love Holmes, but this is BAD The hidden object scenes are very badly done, instead of being cleverly hidden, they are just obscured and without clues would be impossible to find. The puzzles are ok, but the instructions aren't clear enough. I don't recommend this game. November 8, 2012
