Sherlock Unlock – Outbreak – 5.5/10
South Quay, London.
Governments across the world confirmed this morning that a devastating biological attack of massive proportion could be coming at any moment! Professor Nemrov has created a virus so contagious that a single infected victim could easily start a global pandemic and life as we know it will come to an end. A highly trained team from London has been sent to take down this incredible threat to the whole world. This team of experts, whose identities remain a mystery, are risking exposure to this horrendous disease in a brave bid to save all of mankind!
The team here were nice, although there was a bit of a delay with getting in to the room. The room itself had not had too much budget spent on it by the looks of things but wasn’t bad.
The issue here really was that we constantly felt like there were at least 3 of us crowded around the same puzzle. There was some variety but not as much as we’ve come across previously and there was one puzzle that could so easily have been ruined if you hadn’t read a note before you started playing with it. One nice puzzle which we hadn’t seen before and have not yet seen since has pushed the rating up slightly but unfortunately it was just ok and there’s not much more we can say than that.
Probably better for 1-3 people.
