Sherlock Holmes: The Silver Earring reviews and comments

Great and addictive game. Of Course in this game there is a shortcomings, and specifically terrible and inconvenient control that will slightly spoil the mood in some places, but it is compensated by interesting puzzles and puzzles. Also in the Russian version there is a good voice. There are a couple of comic inserts. Total: 9/10

I liked the Game even more than The Awakened! Good Old quest, not quite modern in terms of graphics and gameplay, but interesting in terms of the plot. A Little slow narrative does not affect the atmosphere. Pleased almost complete lack of routine-everything on the case, no extraneous tasks and contrived actions. Very few clever puzzles with incomprehensible logic of the solution-this is also a plus. Voiced in the performance of the best Holmes of all time Vasily Livanov-a nice bonus, with a number of reservations. The Only claim to the final conclusions-all is far from obvious: who, what, why and why you understand only in the last video, but not his head, too many killers and cunning. 7.5/10

The First in the game, which immediately catches the eye, more precisely by ear, is a fun Russian voice. Honestly, I've been laughing at Watson's poker face for a long time and the emotionless of the secondary characters. Unfortunately, the voice is nedorabotanna in terms of the sound itself. For Example, while talking to Lestrade, it is barely audible when Sherlock speaks very loudly. "Feel dumb." This phrase was often in my head. Many of the actions that were to be performed on my part were incomprehensible to me, there was no explanation for these actions. That is, for example, it was necessary to explore the subject, the room, but it was completely unclear why, Sherlock did not explain anything. And so several times. Of course, I did everything, but this misunderstanding spoiled the process of the game, I lost touch with the story. And it greatly influenced the ending, because the conclusions that Holmes came to me were VERY surprised, I did not imagine that it is possible to come to such conclusions, on the basis of what we have received. Or It's really just my fault, and I'm so mean, heh. In General, this is a moment I did not like. Even confused a large number of characters, I was very confused in their names and who even have to. Well, I believe that this is my personal quality, I am not able to quickly remember the names of the characters. Because of this, some moments Of the game I had a hard time. Otherwise everything is fine, there is a test at the end of each chapter, deductive method we had to answer the questions and provide the evidence themselves that I liked. The Main killer I have been taking from the first minutes of acquaintance with him, just because I did not like him. That's a woman's intuition:D
