Story
In Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack The Ripper players are witnessed to the sights, sounds and grim realities of the late Victorian era. It's 1888, London, in the Whitechapel area, and a series of grisly crimes in the heart of the East End leave a gory trail of mutilated female bodies. The police struggle to pick up the scent as the bodies pile up and paranoia sweeps the city. Sherlock Holmes immerses himself in the dark, sordid alleyways of Whitechapel in order to follow the trail of the one that the press calls Jack the Ripper. During a terrifying investigation, Holmes will attempt to lift the veil of mystery that shrouds the motives and the face behind that horrific nickname.

Gameplay
Presented in full 3D, Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper offers players 2 different perspectives which are available at any moment in the game: a third-person view in the pure style of traditional point ’n’ click adventure games and a first-person view for close-up investigation. Players have the total freedom to choose either of the angles they wish, or use them both to immerse themselves completely in this terrifying adventure. In addition, the player will also find within the game an original crime scene reconstitution system that will allow he/she to test theories during the progression of the investigation as they follow the bloody trail of the terrifying serial killer.

Play as Holmes and Dr. Watson
As brilliant as Sherlock Holmes is, no adventure featuring the super sleuth would be complete without the assistance of his sidekick Dr. Watson. In Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper players get the full experience and benefits of the Holmes/Watson mystery solving team with the ability to play as both characters as they comb the backstreets of Victorian London in search of the infamous Jack the Ripper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ripping good time May 28, 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This installment is my new favorite in the Holmes series. It's a dark, sometimes terrifying journey into London's underbelly and the murders that plagued the area in 1888. But for a game about Jack the Ripper, it's not overtly gory and is done `tastefully.' However, the 2D renderings of some of the murder victims are still disturbing.
There are numerous puzzles, from very easy to more difficult number combination and sliding object tasks, but none are computer destroying impossible and can be figured out with a little logic. There are also many retrieve this-to make-that tasks and errands that must be done before the next sequence is revealed, but all are pertinent to the story line, are never MacGyver-level stupidity and are not boring. The ability to switch between 1st and 3rd (annoying) person is new to this game, but I mostly used first person (it makes the game more engrossing). It is a fairly long game (about 20-40 hours gameplay), but there are numerous prompts to avoid the what-do-I-do-now syndrome and the item interaction search feature cuts down on the pixel hunting that was rampant in the previous games. Slower machines may experience long loading times at some of the cut screens (due to graphics rendering) and if playing for more than 2 hours, the save feature may stop working :)

This Holmes game is the first in the series to actually let the player in on the action and deduce how Holmes actually comes up with his solutions, instead of the 15 minute closing monologue in other games where he explains the solution to poor oblivious Dr. Watson using clues that you scarcely remember picking up during the game.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The creators of the previous Sherlock Holmes installmenet, The Awakened, have done nothing short of impressing me with this current title. I enjoyed The Awakened mainly for its Lovecraftian-themed storyline, but also because the puzzles were challenging and there was a great amount of viscera for horror fans like myself. Of course, I'm no genius, so many of the later puzzles in that title became frustrating, and I was forced on numerous occasions to consult an online walkthrough (something I HATE having to do).

Now comes Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper! What an ingenious idea! Already being a fan of the previous game, and harboring a deep interest in the Jack the Ripper murders, I didn't think twice about shelling out the twenty bucks for this title, resigning my ego to the fact that I would probably have to use online walkthroughs to get through it as well.

Well, nearly a week has gone by since I've bought the game, and I just finished it last night. Perhaps a bit of bragging is in order? I didn't need to use a single walkthrough this time around. Now, that's not to say that they aren't challenging puzzles (I'm not a dummy; I play chess frequently and got a B.A. with honors in English), my brain was definitely grinding to get through a few of the later ones. But, the system built into this game -- when a correct combination of clues are automatically hi-lighted in green, for instance -- really helps for those times when we're unsure of our solutions.

Most impressive about the game, once again, is the storyline. These guys have really done their research regarding Jack the Ripper. I was delighted to see actual evidence (testimonies, letters from the Ripper, newspaper reports, photographs of the victims, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely fantastic May 26, 2009

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is the best so far of all the Sherlock Holmes series. Not only is it much more interactive, in that you are able to make deductions and conclusions yourself, but it is also quite historically accurate! After completing the game, I begana to research the truth behind Jack the Ripper and was shocked at how accurate even the smallest details in the game came to the historical account of what's known of Jack the Ripper's canonical five. Great game - I'm so glad I purchased it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring December 23, 2010
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I was interested in the game as it received some positive reviews on Amazon.com, but I was very disappointed. I spent the first 30 minutes dragging through boring clips of the characters talking and reading long (not very well written) "newspaper articles". Then, I spent the next 20 minutes running errands for characters in the game until finally... a puzzle! However, the puzzle didn't have any directions or indicate what you were SUPPOSED to be doing. The character movement is tedious and it's hard to figure out how to control the camera (which can switch from 3rd to 1st person view). I'd recommend using 1st person view as it seems like the game was built for that view - sometimes I couldn't click on important items without switching to 1st person view. When I bought the game it was on "sale" for $5. It wasn't worth even that much. There are much better games out there. If you're interested in the casual adventure game category I'd recommend a Nancy Drew game; if you want a puzzle/hidden object game then go for Mystery Case Files.
