I'm playing "Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened", and just like the Jack the Ripper Holmes game, I have mixed feelings about this.

I love and obsess about Holmes, so being a adventure fan I feel I must play these. And I enjoy playing them, although I often miss the objects I need to be focusing on (and feeling guilty for using the hotspot finder). The atmosphere is nice, although they reuse the same few people and few paintings, which annoys me. The voice actors sound off, and I'm sorry, but Holmes would not care about getting warm in a pub. All he's after is the pieces to the puzzle.

But despite its faults, I still enjoy it a lot. Seeing the little details in the flat from the book, the pauses Holmes does that I can just picture he's think to himself, "You really are dumb".
