okay first off....i dont usually play PC games,but with me being a big fan of Sherlock Holmes,i am intrigued by the new game coming out

Sherlock Holmes Vs Arsene Lupin

does anyone have a date for this yet?,as i tried looking it up at my local GAME site and they didnt have it listed

they did however have other sherlock holmes adventures for cheap,so i may try them out

has anyone tried these games and are they any good?

Sherlock Holmes-the mystery of the mummy
Sherlock holmes and the case of the missing earing
Sherlock Holmes :the Awakened


i am sure my PC is up to playing these games,when i last played PC games it was fine(FF11,star wars galaxies,COD2)...I think my graphics card is 5800 or something like that


thanks for any replies

Stay far, far away from Mystery of the Mummy as it's a study in horrible design, story and pixel-hunting. There was absolutely no sign of Watson just a series of first-person puzzles.

Silver Earring was better graphically and story-wise (although the story was extremely convoluted and I couldn't for the life of me figure out what the hell was going on), but it had SH sneaking through a "junkyard" where the guards and dogs were psychic. Holmes doesn't sneak. He disguises himself and boldly goes wherever he needs to be.

I have Awakened, but I've yet to play it. Overall, it's fared much better review-wise so I have hope.

The Awakened is headed to Alan to review.  I was supposed to get it reviewed but some family issues got in the way and I dropped the ball. 

From what I hear though, it is pretty good, if a bit plain graphically.

I got it for my wife and she is liking it, although she said it's a bit hard. And she finishes these games usually in a couple days.

The Awakened has a demo out.  I tried it and couldn't figure out what to do and just ended up running around wishing I had a BFG.
