Elementary! 0

Adventuregames (or if you prefer; "point-and-click-games") are becoming more and more rare these days, after their peak of popularity in the early 90's. Mostly because of their low re-play value, and often low budget being behind them, many seem to steer clear from such games nowadays.Playing a game like Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper is a breath of fresh air today, as it's not often you get to enjoy a fully voiced adventuregame, with somewhat enjoyable graphics along with it. To be honest,...

A solid puzzler 0

There's not a whole lot that's worthy of note in the game.  It's a very straightforward puzzle game, I don't know if there's enough freedom to call it an adventure game.  The linearity can work to the game's advantage, as you'll never have that frustrating walk around old areas wondering if you've missed anything.  The puzzles are better than you might expect, more varied too.  None of them should really send most people cowering for a FAQ. A couple of critical spelling mistakes could cause some...

Fun but easy 0

As a fan of thinking man's games, this one was a lot of fun.  And they got the facts right, as an amatuer Ripperologist.  Only problem is.......it was almost too easy.  Sure, if you don't know your history or spatial reasoning it might be a little harder, but this game can easily be completed in one sitting.  However, as my first fully completed game, it was an enjoyable way to pass the afternoon!...

Poor production doesn't mar a solid story and good gameplay 0

If you’ve heard of this title it was probably from a bargain bin or list of easy to 1k games; which is true, but it also has to be the best game I’ve played in months. The game is essentially a glorified point and click, only this time you wheel around Watson or Holmes in first person instead of being given a picture of the room. I’d like to compare it to the other big puzzle game of this year; L.A Noire. Throughout the game you will notice a distinct lack of polish, the graphics aren’t awful bu...

Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack The Ripper 0

This is my first review so please send me some constructive feedback on what I can do to improve.   This review will be broken down into sections starting with story, game-play,  and voice acting.   Story- As the title says the story is about Sherlock trying to find out who Jack The Ripper is. It is very well thought out and well written. Some parts of the story progression can become a bit slow and tiresome but it makes up for it later on when you start to become closer to discovering who Jack ...

Entertaining and Fascinating 0

 Sherlock Holmes vs Jack the Ripper take its design from a combination of a puzzle game and a point and click adventure. Played from either a first or third person perspective, you take control of both Holmes and Watson as you investigate the gruesome Whitechapel murders of 1888. The story, characters and events are largely based on facts, and the resolution is entirely plausible. Though-out the game you'll be solving a variety of logic and deduction based puzzles which are cleverly woven in the...
