  1. For those who enjoy the hidden object genre, Jack's a darkly fun experience with lots of replay value and a good amount of difficulty variation.

    Maybe the most important thing to mention about Jack the Ripper is its price, though -- eight bucks is pretty steep for this kind of experience.
  3. The only real crime here is a perfectly good mystery turning into "Where's Wally?" [Sept 2010, p.93]
