The Lost Cases of 221B Baker St.
Variety of puzzles
There are 16 cases for Sherlock and Watson to solve as well as four bonus stories to read. Each case has a hidden object scene, a spot the difference game and a puzzle. There are a variety of puzzles such as sliders, putting messages back together, connecting pipes and others. They varied in difficulty and there is a skip button. At the end of each case you need to sort the suspects into categories and then eliminate them. The graphics are a little grainy in places. Although the hidden objects are small, most are easily found. There is a hint button and you can collect more hints by finding Sherlock's pipe in each case. The items that need to be found are period related. Voice acting is appropriate to the characters. I like this game because you can finish each case stands alone so it is great when you only have short periods of time available for game play.

221B Baker St.
A great non-violent game. There are 16 storylines and 4 bonus chapters. The HOs are fun to complete with a few puzzels thrown in. The game plays about the same on each storyline, but, the nice thing is the diffent storylines.
You have to locate clues to each mystery then eliminate each suspect.
Not very challenging, but, enjoyable.

Another Sherlock Masterpiece
If you liked the first Lost Cases, you?ll like this follow-up. Improvements are the English voice overs and animation. Very wide variety of mildly challenging mini-games and puzzles, sometimes they are within the HOS if it contains a clue. There are 16 cases and the 4 mini-novelettes which are an especially pleasant addition. Graphics reflect the Victorian age and are very well done. To solve who did it, the suspects are categorized and then eliminated one-by-one until only one suspect remains. And of course, you feel like you should have guessed who did it before you reach this stage, just as if you read the books.
The developers are to be commended for bringing the same suspense from the books into the game. Good for beginners and for more experienced gamers wanting a relaxing day or two. If I had less experience, I would have given it 3 stars for challenge. As Dr. Watson says: Cheerio.

When doing the hidden objects scenes, if you didn't find something quick enough it gives you the answer. This was frustrating and made the game pointless. I didn't play past the first scene as there was no challenge.

TO ME, SAME CASES AS THE LOST CASES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES
In the Lost Cases of 221B Baker St., there were repeat stories from the previous game, a huge disappointment. Thought I was getting all NEW cases. In the first game, you had to collect Holmes' hat. In the 221B, you have to collect his pipe. Same old in many ways.
