Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective review

"If you can stand the Americanism of the whole disc, and it's definitely worth trying to look beyond this fault, Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective is a seminal multimedia product. At just £40, that alone should be enough justification for owning a copy. More than that, it's a genuinely engaging game which will take many hours of gameplay to solve each of the mysteries. I've seen Déja Vu bring whole office buildings to a halt, and Sherlock has the same potential." - PC Review Issue 7 (1992)

Retro gamer collector's corner:

A sequel to the game was also released in 1992 called Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective Vol. II with three new cases to be solved. A third entry, with three new cases, was also released.

In 2012, a Kickstarter campaign was launched by David Marsh and his company Zojoi, LLC to help fund a high resolution and remastered version of the Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective Adventure Mysteries. Even though the Kickstarter was unsuccessful, the remastered version was still released.
