"I suppose it’s no secret that I love the Nancy Drew series of adventure games. Her mystery games always keep me entertained. But when it comes to Sherlock Holmes—a fantastic detective whose book series might be even more popular than Nancy Drew’s—the videogame world has left me sorely disappointed.
There have been a few one-shot Sherlock Holmes games, like Hound of the Baskervilles or Lost Cases of Sherlock Holmes. Mostly, they are unimpressive hidden objects games, trying to capitalize on a free license. There has also been the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes series, which I have been warned to stay far away from.
Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective is a series of three FMV games, released from 1991 to 1993. It’s probably the best place to go for Sherlock Holmes videogame fans. You control Sherlock Holmes through a series of murder investigations. In 2012, they re-released the first game on the iPad, allowing me to play it for the first time," writes Michael Gray
