Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
"Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet" is a Mix of puzzle combination and hidden object game. And that is also the essential Problem. In the Hidden Object Passages, the Game degenerates into a sophisticated Pixel Hunt. In the Well-drawn screens, some of the Objects to be found disappear due to Minission, coupled with Uniformity with the Ground. This has nothing more to do with Combination, but more to do with a Vision Test. The Story is quite nice, if quite cliché-rich. The Body of a young Painter was found wrapped in a Persian Carpet. There is a Need to find murderer and Motive. The Game dispenses with Animations or Synchronization. Only in Still Images and Subtitles is told and this then seems badly reduced and atmospheric free. On the other hand, the sliding computing or code puzzles, which are well conceived and designed, although they are usually not too difficult, can be pleasing. However, the Circumstantial Combination mechanism is then too simple again. The Case itself remains strangely in the Background, the Figures remain papers. Rating: 5/10 Atmosphere 4/10 Story 5/10 Graphic 3/10 Sound 4/10 Game Mechanics 5/10 Balancing 5/10 Game Pass Conclusion: Nice Puzzles, but which degenerate Into pointless Pixel Search in the Hidden Object passages. The Case itself remains quite uninteresting. 5/10 Overall Rating
