Sherlock Holmes Chapter One guides and features hub
Official review – Sherlock Holmes Chapter One is the ninth entry in a long-running franchise. It acts as a prologue, setting up the would-be detective’s identity and letting you know more about his background. There are several cases to solve and an even darker mystery to uncover. However, there are also a few issues, such as the poor usage of the choices and consequences theme, as well as a clunky combat system. But, is it still worth your while?
Campaign walkthrough – There are five main cases to solve in the campaign (one of which is a multi-stage quest that unlocks as you progress). Each investigation will likely take you a couple of hours to complete owing to the mechanics involved.
