Indeed I noticed that too. I forgot what to find so I had to drap Mr. Epstein into that closet a few times. Another part I find funny is when they are in the equestrian shop and they Holmes says "Watson let us make a nuisance of ourselves" then he picks up that horn and blows into it. I also find it...

I meant to start playing this game again this past weekend. It didn't happen, but I'm definitely gonna soon. Talking about it has really got me excited to play it again. It's November, have you started? Yes I began this weekend, like you I almost did not because I just got DOOM 3 bfg and Assassins ...

Just as well really. You'd probably be dissapointed w/the lack of actors and elimination of most of the speech. Wow I just saw a youtube video for it man you are right no actors just animated pop ups. The text is big blue box with bulky letters, wow, it definately would have left me with wanting th...

I was going to get some other Sherlock Holmes titles for PC but about 2 months ago, right before I dove head first into 3DO again, I missed Sherlock Holmes the most so I bought the CD ROM version instead of getting a whole new 3DO. When I popped it in, it was not compatable, which I half expected. ...

Sherlock Holmes is ace. Incredible atmosphere! I remember the door bell thing, and, yes, that was quite annoying. But no big deal anyway. I also remember that the game crashed one time - right before the cut scene, where that guy jumped from the bridge. Next time I tried it, everything went fine th...

Wow, this title looks cool, I'll definitely pick it up. Thanks for sharing your love for it, zook! When I first read about it, I confused it with Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective, a game made for DOS, Sega CD, and TGCD. It's one of the first CD-ROM games I owned, and I LOVED it. It spawned 2 se...

That is crazy, I would almost think that probably is yours I wish my original would return but I sold it in 1997 to a friend who sold it to another friend who sold it to another friend, so I am sure it's long gone. My second 3DO went all the way to Russia so I do not think I will see that one again.

That was the exact minset because I just got it, and I was worried it was on it's last when I got it. I hope it never breaks because if it does I will probably buy a replacement.

Indeed, I only brought up her age because she always complains that people her age do not play video games, blah blah blah, and now Twisted got her hooked. That was definately my emotions in order, I think the problem is I did not clean my disks when they arrived. Sherlock Holmes was messed up too t...

Yes and another thing I find interesting is you mix chemicals together and you have to figure out which chemicals mix with which, there also is no clues as to what goes with what and the thing is they don't even tell you have to mix anything at all! You have to figure out if that is something you sh...

And I also forgot to mention the music is great in this game. I tend to like classical music (even though I blast heavy metal, classic rock, and gangsta rap) and this game has a great soundtrack that gives you a 19th century atmosherer which does lead me to a flaw in the game and that is the fact th...

Indeed there is not a whole lot wrong with Sherlock Holmes, it is a thinking game but not full of crazy puzzles like the PS3 Sherlock Holmes. As long as you avoid strategy guides you will be scratching your head trying to figure out what to do next. It is like actually solving a crime, not a bunch o...

Re: Hello!

Hi, I used to play Return Fire at a friend's house after work in the 90's, and I've finally scored an FZ-1 player, and both Return Fire titles! I really like this console, and it's been nice to get it going and re-live some of the fun I used to have! I'm working on an upgrade to the 32K savegame sp...

I'm guessing you wouldn't like the story mode, then. In Super Melee, your fleet of ships are roughly equal in power to your enemy's. In story mode, you consistently have to battle massive battleships with a fleet of flying tin cans. This is still one of my main hangups with the game; while maxing ou...

I love Twisted. It was my first game back in 1995 that came with the FZ-1 I bought. I just picked up my copy a few days ago, this game is great to play with others too.

The Horde version help

Since I just recently reobtained a 3DO, I still have not yet played The Horde yet. before I pop it in can anyone tell me how to determine the difference between the first version that devoured all the saved data of other games and the second version that did not do that. Is there a way to tell by ju...

Let me get one thing clear, are there different endings on Sherlock Holmes? I have only beaten the game once so I do not know a whole ton about endings. If I understood you correctly, I am even more pumped to play again. Actually, as far as I know, the game only has the one ending. :( Even though t...

Thanks for the kind words. I never knew (or had forgotten) that the game takes place in November, but that's not a weird reason to wait and play it. I've done the same thing w/the Olympic titles, waiting until summer to break them out. I'm guessing that's why your doing AITD now, with Halloween clo...

Beautifully put Trev, and I had no idea about the minigame or anything like that :shock: .

Lost Files Of Sherlock Holmes

Ok I am starting a thread on this game because I absolutely love it and it is my favorite 3DO game. You can tell from my avatar I am a huge fan. I am disappointed this game is never talked about and gets crappy reviews when it is talked about. The graphics are fantastic, very sharp and very colorful...
