They sure sneaked this one in! This is very much a puzzle adventure, solving clues to progress.

Saw your comment about this game on another thread. Thanks for the heads up Mr Russ I've been having withdrawals looking for a new LFA to play!

This is the European name for the game. It's known as Sherlock Holmes: Nemesis in the US and UK.

Be aware that there is a plot branch late in the game and if you make the wrong choice the game will end prematurely. Follow the adventure game mantra and save often.

I am so surprised to happen across this as it does not seem to have been promoted nor do I see it in the new games list yet!!

I have already played this game and highly recommend it! It is an intellectual battle of wits between protagonist and antagonist, without the darker and more evil theme of its predecessor, "The Awakened". It's more akin to the two great minds of Holmes and Moriarty, with a the goal of helping Holmes stop Lupin before he completes his goal. I always liked first person 360 degree movement, but that may not be for everyone.

It's been a dry spell, it seems, for new Large File Adventures, and I hope BFG will add more like these in the future and promote them for those of us who love this genre, and always look forward to new LFA's.

(Mr_Russ, I'm curious as to the premature ending, as I know I completed the game to a successful conclusion?)

At the end of your fourth treasure you have a choice of where to go.

Maybe finding the game was part of the adventure and a present for the fish that are always on the look out for a new LFG?

Wow, this one slipped in under my radar. If I hadn't seen it mentioned over in CCC I never would have known it was here. I should be more aware of what turns up on the genre pages. I'm DLing it now. I have SH vs JTR on the way by mail. Now I'll have to decide which to play first.

Decisions, decisions...

Just curious why this game did not show up under the daily offering...... or did I miss it? I almost bought this game on another game site and am glad I didn't. It has really good reviews A+ on some sites. Also what are the genre pages? (pardon my stupidity). thanks.

You didn't miss anything, mhatfie. It wasn't announced at all. One of my fishie friends spotted it and told me.

Re genre pages - I think there are screens of BFG-hosted games sorted by category (genre) like Hidden Object, Puzzle, Adventure, etc.

Re: genre pages, thank you Mr. Russ. It's something I look at sometimes and didn't think of it as genre pages. (duh). I always thought Big Fish announced all of their new games so I rarely go to the genre pages unless I have a specific game that I know of and want to purchase. Now I will go there more often. Can't wait to play this game. thanks again.

It felt like a "Duh" moment to me too since it didn't occur to me to look past the home page so don't feel alone.I too have now learned to dig a little deeper if only to check.
I'm guessing... but I can't help but wonder if not posting it on the home page had to do with 2 things...
1. It has no demo mode
2. Being such a large file if it was announced than there would be a great drain on their bandwidth at one time.

As I said....just guessing.

Thanks for the reminder re saving often. Something I forget to do. I do hope that now I have signed up for the daily deal email, a super game like this will not miss me in the future.

Hey fishies, in defense of BFG, the original release date for Sherlock Holmes VS Arsene Lupin was December 21, 2009. I happened upon it when searching for another Sherlock Holmes game after completing "The Awakening", my all time favorite Sherlock Holmes game.

I love this type of game! I love BFG and all the adorable fishies in this great big pond!
