Hi Xavier,

The games are all quite different in tone and style.

If you're looking for a real cerebral work-out, then Nemesis (aka SH vs Arsene Lupin) might suit you very well.

Since you don't object to gore, then The Awakened and SH vs Jack the Ripper both have plenty of it. The Jack the Ripper game is factually close to the actual true crime, and puts forward an interesting theory. smile

My own personal favourite is Testament of SH. It's a loooooong, long game (around 16 hrs without a walkthrough), with a twisty-turny plot. The voice actor for Holmes is superb. The graphics are gorgeous and the puzzles are challenging (although not as challenging as Nemesis).

Of the Sherlock selection at BigFish I enjoyed Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper.

What to do,what to do?I'm currently playing RTMI2-Mina's fate but the feeding thing and large inventory are getting on my nerves.There's no Testament on big fish so it's between Arsene and Jack I've heard good things about both in other places as well.I sure do appreciate ya'lls input though.I do like a good puzzler though,so it might be Arsene for now and try Jack at a later time.

THE AWAKENED!! Very cool game. Great puzzles....some dark creepy areas to explore & no EZ walk in the park as far as challenging!!. I'd say either that or Jack The Ripper but The Awakened was my favorite!! GOOD LUCK!!

I've played them all at least twice, but liked 'The Awakened' because it seemed to refocus on the original stories and characters.

The Awakened is my favorite, too. Sherlock meets Cthulhu. grin It's really a fun game that takes you to the Alps, the Louisiana swamps and a strange lighthouse among other places. You won't be bored!

Oh, shoot, Big Fish probably doesn't have it but grab it if they do.
