It is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING that they have made this game work on DVD. Using the remote, you are able to gather clues, interview suspects, take the cases to trial and solve three mysteries. There is even a way to "save" the current game and return to it days later.It is delightful to have the judge tell you at the end of a game how well you did in comparison to Sherlock Holmes.
The videos are much clearer than on the PC version and, instead of small, middle of the screen images, they fill the whole screen making it easier to inspect things and view scenes. The sound is excellent.
One of the geat things about the game is that you can go back and play it differently and interview other people and view other situations just to see how to solve the case in a different manner so that replaying is a definite option.
If you enjoy Sherlock, mysteries and using your brain to solve puzzels, then this is definitely the DVD for you.
There is a preview for another game, "Dracula Unleashed" which is one of my favorite computer games. I can't wait for the realease of this DVD after seeing the magnificent job they have done with "Sherlock Holmes, Consulting Detective".
There are two other volumes of Sherlock that are also promised for a future date (based on how well this one sells)so the future looks great for this type of DVD.
One word of caution - I ran into technical glitches getting this to work on my PC Meadiamatix software DVD player, which works flawlessly for other DVDs.
