The mechanisms remain a game little about the same as in previous, and rather successful episodes of the series with passages of pure point & click with puzzles of all kinds. Sherlock Holmes obliges, it will also a good time to make comments butt on the screen deduction which, as its name suggests, will help turn the famous British detective of the meninges. Guess the process used by Jack the Eventreur to kill and dismember his victims also require a thorough understanding of the method of attack, and we must rebuild each murder in a very clever at the crime scene with Holmes in the role of the killer and this dear Watson grimé pseudo-victim.
