Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360

1888, London, district of Whitechapel. A series of particularly horrible murders takes place in this district of the East End of London where atrociously mutilated prostitutes' bodies are found. The police are unable to find a serious lead and the murders increase creating a real psychosis. Sherlock Holmes starts looking for clues in the dark and sinister alleys of Whitechapel in order to follow the macabre trail of the one the press now calls Jack the Ripper. During a frightening adventure, Sherlock Holmes will try to bring out the true identity and the motives of the one who hides behind this scary alias.

Fully 3D rendered, Sherlock Holmes versus Jack The Ripper offer players two different views that are accessible at any time: a third-person view in the purest style used in point 'n' click adventure games, as well as a first-person view. The player will be free to play in one or the other modes or even combine them for greater immersion into this terrifying adventure.

Use an original crime scene reconstitution system that allows you to test theories during your progression in the investigation to follow the bloody trail of the terrifying serial killer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Relaxing and rather pleasing 28 May 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
My husband picked this up whilst we were trading in some games as he thought I might enjoy it. Didn't know much about it, but looked quite good, and the staff also rated it. I'm so pleased with my hubby. Have just immersed myself in it and felt compelled to come on and write a review. Yes, some of the accents are rather dubious. Yes, the DS could have handled this (and possibly felt less clumsy). Yes, it is clearly not going to be everyone's game of choice. But as I stretched out on the sofa not wanting to be overwhelmed by a fast action game, I have to say I felt he'd found me a real little gem. If you like puzzle or even heavy story led games, this may well be worth a look, especially now it is cheap.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not such a ripper off! 27 Dec 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game would have been better on Nintendo DS and was a waste of Xbox power. It is essentially a very linear point and click mystery on the lines of Broken Sword with graphics and frustrating moments to match. Hot spots appear with a magnifying glass or hand icon and items can be combined in the itinerary to make tools to solve the puzzles. The game is dialogue based (in various rather dodgy "cockney" accents). The controls are clumsy and require you to toggle between the pointers which are a bit of a hit and miss affair.

However, I was aware of this type of game when I bought it and have played it to the end and thoroughly enjoyed it!

The puzzles are tricky to solve and even the instructions can be a mystery in themselves. The story line was good and resolves itself well as you use the map to travel between the Police Station, Brothel, Clinic, Pet Shop, etc. gathering evidence and making deductions which lead to tracking down the ruthless killer.

The game took around 6 hours to play through and the reward...

1000 gamer points!

4.0 out of 5 stars Elementary 5 Jan 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game was very enjoyable. No, its not a "crash bang wallop, look at the special effects on that" type of game and some of the accents (especially the Baker Street irregulars)leave a lot to be desired. The thing I enjoyed about it was the pace of the game, you can actually go through the clues and puzzles in your own time without things exploding or bullets whizzing past your head whilst all the time listening to Sherlock (well, obviously not but!) playing the violin in the background. The puzzles do take a bit of working out and were quite testing (this may just be me being a little slow, who knows?). The Rippers murders were fascinating, and quite factual. The result of the Rippers identity at the end was quite plausible. The best accent/look was Watson, he sounded and looked just like Edward Hardwicke from the Holmes TV series starring Jeremy Brett.
If you like a game that allows you time to pop the kettle on, gets the grey cells working and doesn't blow your ears off, you could do a lot worse than this.

By Mr. S. W. Steel VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I read the other reviews on this game before buying it, and decided to take the plunge as a/the game was pretty cheap on amazon and b/ i wanted a change from all the games i have been playing recently.
This is definitely different to most of the 360 games out there at the moment, and although it is not the best adventure game you will ever play, it is certainly not the worst either!
The plot basically involves Sherlock Holmes trying to hunt down the infamous Jack the Ripper by applying his relentless logic to the crimes that have taken place. You get to play as both Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson and have various tasks to perform and complete during the game. From doing favours for some characters so that you can earn more information, or studying the crime scene, and even making deductions on the identity of Jack, this game has just enough variety to make the game interesting. You can play the game in either third person or first person and can switch at any time between the two perspectives. There are nods to the books in here as well, for those of you who are fans - Holmes makes a great comment about a deerstalker towards the end....
But is it any good? Well, there are definite plus points and some definite flaws too.
The negatives are the length of the game - it comes in at about 5/6 hours of playing time, and there is no real replay value, so if you are going to buy this game, you really do not want to be paying anywhere near the normal 360 price of a game - 40. I purchased this for 12-15 and didn't feel shortchanged by it.
It is also a bit too linear as well, and it would have been nice to have a bit more of an 'open' feel to it too. A bit more interaction with local people would have been nice, or even some optional side quests.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great game for thinkers and readers. 12 July 2011
By Benito
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Seriously, try this game, don't "avoid it at all costs" as another reviewer says. This game is very well written, nicely presented and ingeniously scripted. It's much more than just a 'point and click' adventure.

I have read and loved Sherlock Holmes since a kid and also been fascinated by the Ripper story and this game is a brilliant and very artful combination of the two. It also features many real life references to actual Ripper suspects, which is a nod to those with some prior knowledge of the case.

I'm very glad I didn't listen to the bad reviews here. How can such an original and nicely presented game can get 8 one star reviews? You investigate, read (I think there lies the answer) and deduce, not chase Jack around at high speed on a horse firing uzis or something... I feel compelled to stand up for this game - It is for patient gamers, thinkers and anyone looking for a well-made, literate Victorian adventure game on the 360 (it's probably the only one). Remember it's not a mega budget title, and for trying something different in a marketplace crowded with copies of the same tired old genres, this deserves credit. It appears that most haters haven't looked beyond the game's lack of polish and just dismissed it out of hand. Shame.

The design of the puzzles is very unique and interesting, including the need to re-read interviews and making you deduce and think and sleuth. There are logic, deduction and murder reconstruction puzzles. The graphics, while not stunning, convey the dark and dirty streets of Victorian Whitechapel pretty decently. Being able to play from 1st or 3rd person is also a very nice touch.
