    Oooh. Sherlock Holmes.
    But seeing the 3+ makes me kinda doubt the difficulty of this game.

    The nfo has a good description of the game, but it mentions "potential murder". I'm guessing because of the age rating that there probably won't be murder

    It sounds like "potential murder" just ruined whatever plot twist this game had in store for us. Oh well, not like I'll be playing it any time soon.

    I believe that deduction is correct.

    3+ What a joke!! [​IMG]

    It could have been good if they didnt target it at babies but yet again, I still say they would have screwed it in someway

    Has anyone here tried it? Or has the 3+ scared us all off? [​IMG]

    The box art and 3+ so do not go together.
    The illustration is probably one of the most adult-oriented for the DS I've seen.

    I guess I lose nothing by trying it out though. Hopefully there isn't too much text or "tap every single pixel and see what happens" gameplay.

    Just read a review for the original PC version, and the most disappointing thing would be that it isn't even a Arthur Conan Doyle story. Its written by the games creators. LOL. I mean, how many pre-written Holmes mysteries are already out there that might make a good game? Anyway, I heard its a mediocre game. Well, back to Broken Sword...

    EDIT: LOL I am kinda doubting from the 3+ age rating that Sherlock's rampant morphine and cocaine addiction (from the original stories) will be in the game.

    Yeah, but the game is supposedly mediocre, and not a real Holmes story. I would think of it as some kind of Sherlock Holmes fanfiction. BTW, I was being ironic regarding the drugs and the 3+ rating. Like that would make or break the game for someone....LOL.

    The 3+ rating hasn't to do anything with the difficulty of the game...
    It's only a sex, drugs and gore indicator. Wii chess for example has
    no age rating... show me the 6 month old kid which can play chess...
